Totally agree...... Not much good with this virus going around but I'm sure it inconveniences some of the awful people from going about their disgusting business...

what about those seeing the OM? It takes two to tango op.

And there’s nothing funny about an affair.

I was idly wondering about this on my drive home from work! 😁😁

Trews2019 Wed 25-Mar-20 19:28:25

What about people with secret/double lives? That must have caused a few issues.

Lol that's made my day 😁

Not really funny for the person they are living with though.
Could you imagine their moods because they can't cheat?

They might reconnect with their wives

ChipsyChopsy Wed 25-Mar-20 19:40:44

I guess there is always texting/email. My fear would be absence makes the heart grow fonder. confused

There was a guy who tested positive for coronavirus while wooing the OW in Italy (after telling the wife he was working away).

Poor wife.

In reality - I think this pandemic and quarantine will lead to break downs of a lot of relationships, rather than affairs.
Affairs are already not based on daily contact and if that contact is interrupted, they’ll just hibernate and reunite when possible. And spend time jointly fantasising about it.
However - the real day-to-day relationships that aren’t well functioning, with lack of good communications, or intimacy issues - those will be severely strained in the days of seeing each other 24/7 and running each other the wrong way. Prior to now - work has provided escape for many, and so did affairs.
So while reconnection with the spouse may happen to few - to many this time can just be the last straw.
And once this is over and people realise how short and precious life is - and that it can’t be taken for granted and there isn’t an unlimited time for things to get better - I think there will be a huge fall out.

A mate of mine who's a solicitor is confidently expecting a boom in divorce business once the lockdown ends.

ScarlettBlaize Wed 25-Mar-20 20:00:33

Neither an OW not a cheated-on wife, but I agree completely OP. Fuck them. Or not grin

What @yummyyummycoffee said.

He'll be glued to his phone.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, familiarity breeds contempt.

It's like a never-ending Christmas with no presents, no food, no bloody bog roll and nothing to look forward to.

A relative of mine has been seeing a work colleague for about 8 years and now the pubs are shut etc he hasn’t got a reason to go out.

Last week she was fuming as she had spent ages cooking for them and he texted and said he couldn’t find a reason to escape for a few hours.

She was fuming

absence makes the heart grow fonder
Yes, it's part of the attraction. Poor star-crossed lovers who have to snatch the odd moment together. Now fate has once again torn them apart etc. etc.

I said this to DH the other night!

JuanSheetIsPlenty Wed 25-Mar-20 20:38:42

The sad thing is that some cheaters will actually risk their families health and that of others in order to still see their cheat partner. They’ll make excuses to go out and spread the virus while they’re at it. Some will make their partners or children ill and possibly die due to wanting a shag with their OW/OM.

SybilWrites Wed 25-Mar-20 20:43:41

cheaters gonna cheat.

Nothing will stop a cheater doing it anyway.

Social media and phones and lockdown a cheater's paradise.

I do feel more sorry for the poor women stuck in lockdown with an abuser. Horrendous. (and for their poor children witnessing it all too).

UnaCorda Wed 25-Mar-20 20:43:45

Fair enough, but there are also plenty of people in perfectly "moral" relationships with no third party, who can't see each other either.

BumbleBeee69 Wed 25-Mar-20 20:48:16

I'm confused ? if you know your DH or Partner has another woman.. why are you still with him hmm
