Mommy’s Got a Secret

Family, Love

Secret lover, that is.

According to the Huffington Post, one in three moms have had or are having an affair. That's crazy talk, right? Nope. They got the numbers from a study. A legit one.

The article makes an interesting point:
"As the Hook-Up Generation grows up and gets married, chances are affairs may even go mainstream. It's hard for us to believe that this won't lead to hurt feelings and collateral damage (remember the kids)..."

Uh, can you say open marriage? People can’t seem to get enough of them these days.

My question: When do these moms have time to cheat? They must have fulltime nannies or school-age kids. Or something. I wish I could find time for an affair. Although I’d use the time getting spa treatments. All. Day. Long.
