I decided to post this after a discussion on another post.|
I've found that many people think that in America, everyone has 'open' marriages. This is far from the truth. There are some who do but they are very, very small in numbers. There is no way that most American women would tolerate their husbands, moving out, living with a girlfriend and stay married to him. In America, the women would divorce him, take as much of his money as she could get and be finished with him. I know you've seen movies that show Americans as very 'open'. They are not. Not like this.
On the other hand, I am shocked as just how many women I've met here in China who are married to men who openly live with girlfriends and stay married to them (they say, "Because of the children or child."). I don't know a lot of people here in China, but, I know of two women who have remained married to their husbands while the husband has lived with his girlfriends for 10 years or more. American women would never tolerate that.
The divorce rate here in China remains much lower than in the U.S., but, in reality, many men get a girlfriend, live with her, don't live with their wife and just stay married. I personally think that its more honest to divorce such a man and go on with your life.
Any thoughts or comments are welcomed.
