The Top 10 Stereotypical Marriage Wreckers

Posted: 01/29/2012 1:45 pm

Many divorces involve a third party who becomes the catalyst in a broken marriage. It is very common for either the husband or wife, locked in what they see has become a boring marriage, to decide to break up after becoming infatuated with someone new. After working for thirty years as one of the UK's top divorce lawyers, I know they almost always fit a stereotype. Sometimes the new relationship works out -- more often it does not. A marriage under strain is never the ideal time to forge new relationships, which may be far more exciting and attractive in the mind than in real life.

The toned beefcake or shapely siren at the local gym is paid to get you hot and sweaty. They are therapists and personal trainers rolled into one who flirt to get you to use their services, listen to your problems and then see you at your most intimate, exhausted and scantily-clad. A level of trust and attraction is natural. As the endorphin rush kicks in, this relationship can easily cross the line.
