Married Man Attracted To Other Women

Mar. 8, 2015

Dear Cathy:

I have been married for 10 years. I am attracted to other women. I dream about them when I am with my wife and my wife even catches me sometimes looking at them. I desire to be with another woman but I am afraid of diseases and other issues that it might cause in my marriage. What should I do?

Dear Attracted to Other Women:

Being attracted to other women is fine as long as you don’t act on it. It shouldn’t shock you to learn that you are attracted to other women - most men are. You’ve probably even fantasized about one in the last 24 hours. 

No matter how wonderful and attractive your spouse is or no matter how she tries to sustain your interest, there is always someone else out there who will turn you on. This is just life. 

What happens after the head turning, however, is left up to the individual. Many men resort to cheating and others just keep dreaming about other women. This is where "will power" and "self-discipline" comes into play. 

There is a lot more to forfeit if you act on cheating on your wife -- so consider everything upfront. Not only will you be at risk for catching a disease, but do you really want to gamble your relationship on your feelings for these other women?
