The man or the other woman?
The other woman in every case of infidelity has always been incriminated by society, making her look like the devil personified. We call her all unflattering names in the book – husband snatcher, home wrecker (and those other names you feel you need to add onto this list).
I am not trying to defend her but I think we owe it to her to understand her. Much as she may have done the seducing (as we all like to assume), it was the man who was in a committed relationship; and he made the choice of disrespecting that commitment.
More often than not, she is a victim too. She probably got lied to from the start of the relationship - when he aint lying about being single, he is lying about being in this horrible relationship with his 'ogre' wife or in the process of getting a divorce. And by the time she realizes that the divorce aint gonna happen, she maybe has a family with him already.

What are you looking for?
I suppose it is ‘noble’ that many men will never leave their wives for the other woman. And I suppose it also isn’t fair that a wife suffers and cries herself to sleep because her husband is tucked under the other woman’s sheets.
If you are the poor woman that found herself in the shoes of a ‘husband snatcher’, there are enough men for all of us. Don’t continue being the reason a wife prays for her husband to come back home. Hope it aint too late to get out and start afresh.
Much as society will never look at the other woman any nicer just by the mere fact that the man is the one who momentarily walked out on a union he made a commitment to, if you were duped, don’t kill yourself with guilt and don’t live the rest of your life paying for a crime you didn’t know you were committing. Some peaceful sleep is something you can do with.
So, between the man and the other woman, who is the villain that deserves to get their eyes gorged?
