I have been watching a show on the ABC called "a beautiful lie". Another great Australian show. But...the characters are so frustrating!
It got me thinking...the main (female) character has an affair. Not once has she been concerned about the impact the affair has on her young son (maybe 4 or 5 years). She sacrifices everything for the new man.
Look, I know it's a show and all, but I absolutely can't get it out of my head how she risks it all. There is absolutely no way I could cheat on my husband, because in reality, i'd feel like I was cheating on my whole family. I could never do it to my children.
I feel like men who cheat, would never really have the same "maternal" feeling of the impact on the children. But I feel that women would? Is that a huge generalization?
I'm not judging anyone, I'm just interested on what people think about why mothers cheat and if they feel their actions affect the whole family?
