So what makes flirting, according to some married women, a good thing, and not grounds for divorce?
"You know, I love my husband so much and would never cheat on him, but sometimes I just need to get attention from a male who has never seen me first thing in the morning," says one.
"It needs to be someone who hasn't come home after work to find me with baby vomit on my shoulder, or asked what smells so bad as I swan past with a dirty nappy on my way to the bin."
Another girlfriend, married for six years and with two children aged under four, says: "It's hard to feel sexy sometimes when you have financial worries that have to be discussed with your partner every other day.
"It makes me feel good to just smile, bat the old eyelashes and have a conversation with a guy that has nothing to do with the reality of my life."
All of them agree that if they go out and a guy wants to chat to them, they feel like they've still "got it".
"If I feel sexy, then I'm going to want to 'be' sexy, and that's when my husband reaps the benefits of my 'flirting'," says one.
Of course, flirting while married is not for everyone. You have to be very much in control so it doesn't go too far or you don't lead someone on to a point where they want revenge. You also have to know that you're not jeopardising your relationship or creating a "tit for tat" flirting scenario, which can often result in unnecessary affairs.:)
