  1. Yes.

    Just like a killer is still a killer even if he haven’t killed in 50 years.

    Only after a divorce is she not a mistress.

  2. Of course people will see it that way. She is, in fact, "the other woman" because he isn’t divorced. If the relationship with her isn’t a secret then I would say she is NOT a mistress.

  3. She sure is…there is woman running around with his last name and rights to half of everything he owns. If something were to happen to him..she has the legal right to tell them to cut off life support or keep him on it…when he dies she makes the arrangements! Get a DIVORCE man!

  4. Is he getting divorced from his wife? If not, they yes, she is still a mistress. I would not consider the ow a mistress if he is in the middle of a divorce however.

  5. yes. the definition of a mistress is the woman outside the marriage. If a man is married and he has a woman on the side, she is a mistress.

  6. imo no..they seem pretty much to bee a valid exclusive couple if that many people know on that level.

    hell, in this situation the actual WIFE you could called the mistress when/if she pops up pretty much being that the couple is that know as one for 2 years. lol

    what’s the hold up on the divorce also. need to make that happen

  7. So lets say they have a life together and all of that. Something happens to the guy, and all that he worked for with his girlfriend becomes the wife’s. They shared a bank account. Half of that is the wife’s now. House? Now the GF shares it with the wife. The guy gets in a terrible accident and can only have family visit him. The GF can’t go, because the wife trumps her out in the eyes of the law. The wife can also make medical decisions for him unless he has filed legal documents otherwise. Forget about his pension and/or retirement because his wife gets that too.

    If the man truly cares about his GF, then he will divorce his wife, and if the woman has any sense at all, she would stay away from the guy until he is well and truly divorced. Marriage on paper is still a legal marriage.

  8. Yes. She is not the lawful partner which legally means she doesn’t exist.

    If anything ever happened to this man, his wife would be able to make the decision as to what would happen to him (should he be unable to voice that choice)

    Unless otherwise specified in a will, the current and legal wife would get and Social Security benefits, and other monies owed to her.

    If there are children involved, the new woman would have no rights to making (medical and legal) decisions for those children unless the wife allowed it.

    Really mistresses are useless. It seems like you get all the glory without any of the stress, but in the end you get nothing. I can’t tell you how many times i’ve seen "girlfriends" come in with their sick "boyfriends" to the hospital and the girlfriend can’t ask questions about what’s going on, can’t make decisions. It’s really a helpless and avoidable situation.

    As long as she knows she has no rights to anything but his emotions, I guess she can do what she will. But she’ll still be a mistress.

  9. Yes she is ! Why would you want this much drama in your life? A married man going through a divorce is not ready to just commit to someone else. It is too much mentally and emotionally for him to handle. Plus his fiances are going to diminish quickly and things will come up in the divorce proceedings that will make him madder than hell . So i honestly think that right now is not a good time to pursue this. You are better off with someone else , trust me. And if he has not gotten a divorce already and is messing around with you , how do you really know or not if he is really getting a divorce or is he just telling you this? Married men rarely ever leave their wives ,esp if they can have their cake with her and his icing with you. He has two women and neither one knows about the other. That is crap lady! He is crap! Leave his sorry ass alone.

  11. Yes, of course she is. It doesn’t make it justified just because every one knows. My question is what kind of women would want a man that would not divorce his wife first? If he cared about the women and had any respect for himself, he would be divorced.
