I have been married for 8 years and I am in what my wife calls a ‘happy marriage.’
We don’t argue or have heated discussions. We have routine intimate relations every week. It is boring.
I thought I was doing the right thing by marrying a plain looking woman.
Good looking woman are arrogant and high maintenance.
I wanted to marry someone whose personality made up for her looks.
Maybe I was going through a phase at the time.
Eveyone thinks my wife is so lucky that someone as good looking as me married her.
None of that really matters. But I need more from life.
I need passion. I need excitement.
I have had two affairs, but they only lasted 6 months each. Neither of those women were exciting enough for me.
It’s only a matter of time before I move onto the next.
Sometimes I wish my wife had found out, just to see a more alive side to her.
I think a second marriage may be the solution for me.
I will tell my wife that when I find the right person.
My wife will always come first for me. The second wife will have to accept that.
This is what will make me happy and let me feel I can finally settle down.
