In Indian society, people generally have marriages of convenience. Varkha Chulani, “This condition of wives having affairs generally arises in 80 percent of marriages today because there is very little communication with each other.
For most women, an inattentive husband is the biggest problem, and husbands too have accepted this situation because they refuse to go through the tedious process of divorce.”While the woman is on the lookout for love outside marriage, she is definitely in no mood to leave her husband. For women who have been married for many years and for whom the whole life is about taking care of their kids and their house life definitely becomes very monotonous for them.
From having sex once a week, they have sex one a month or may not even for months together.
It is high time we accept the fact that everybody needs variety in their sex life,” says Devyani Rao, a stylist with a leading lifestyle magazine.
Even if the marriage is not healthy, we tend to hold on to it for various reasons.
Whether through an open relationship or just a fantasy, looking elsewhere is not the root cause of trouble in relationships.
In this situation looking for love elsewhere tends to be a life pattern triggered by fears (of commitment, of being loved, of waking up with the same person every morning).
Women today have come out of the four walls of the house and have started experimenting with their sex lives.
For many years, the issue of extramarital affairs was thought to be a “woman’s issue” – that is, women dealing with their husbands’ affairs.
The neglect of their personal life by husbands has led to women becoming desperate for attention and they don’t mind flaunting their boyfriends.
Often we want to hold on to relationships because we do not want to get out of our comfort zone.
