Thats what authors Stephanie Gertler and Adrienne Lopez discovered while interviewing suburban housewives for a new book, To Love, Honor And Betray (Hyperion).
They interviewed 65 ladies and were surprised that the women who felt the most guilt about having an affair were the ones who were merely fantasizing about it and hadnt actually cheated.
Gertler figures thats because the ladies who were merely contemplating getting some on the side had unlimited fantasies as well as fear about what their desires implied about their marriage.
But the housewives who actually cheated werent so desperate and many figured they would cheat again because the buzz they got from affairs was so addictive.
Also, many cheating chicks feel extramarital romps save their marriages by supplying whats missing in their primary relationships.
Even so, Gertler says most cheating wives would stop catting around if their hubbies would simply say, Tell me what Im not doing right.
