Another woman. These words conjure up images of half-naked beauties, fatal women, suffering single women, patiently waiting for a silent phone to ring. These are all characters in melodramas, Jackie Collins novels, and country music. But they have little relation to reality.
“Most“ other ”women are just like you and me,” says San Diego psychotherapist Joe Ann Bitner, Ph.D., who knows what she says. Dr. Bitner herself was once a "different woman"; her life and her studies group therapy with women in relationship with married men a few years ago became the subject of a television film.
According to one of the experts, in the future a rare woman will have no connection with a married man for life.
There is evidence that in the United States, 15 to 20 percent of all single women over 35 are in contact with a married man. This is approximately 11 million American women. Although these figures include a certain number of “busy” women, purely sexual relations and female predators specializing in “catching” foreign husbands are not the norm, but the exception.
In life, the “norm” is much more normal than most people think. "Often, Dr. Bitner observes, these are women who have for many years maintained friendly relations with men, and these relationships have turned into love in the same way as always happens when people come together."
