If you don't love your husband and you stay for financial reasons, are you any different than a call girl?

My friend and I were talking about this last night because another friend of ours has affairs and only stays with her husband because of her cushy life. What makes that different than having sex for money? Curious what you guys think.

Sounds like she's sold her soul for material things. Kinda sad. And cruel.

There are lots of reasons to stay in a less then perfect marriage. She made commitments. However, cheating. I hope he catches her on video, divorces her and leaves her on the street. In my opinion she is worse then a call girl. She is a dishonest, deceitful, slut.

In a way it is worse because there is a violation of trust and commitment
She should stop doing what is deeply wrong open up and try to reconcile. Love is a verb, not just a feeling

Does the husband know that she cheats? Maybe it's a little thing they have worked out between them. It makes a mockery of marriage, but it may be what they want.

i stay with my husband for financial reasons and that doesn't make me less of a person--let me explain. If we were divorced, we would be paying two mortgages, two health insurance premiums, traveling back and fourth to pick up two young children, etc. Our marriage is less than perfect and my hubby is controlling. Because we have young children, we want to ensure they have happy childhood without being shorted opportunities due to both of us not having money to afford things they need. It's not ideal, we don't fight, we don't argue, we get along like friends, but my heart is not in it any longer. However, i would NEVER have an affair because I wasn't happy. it's wrong.

She needs to check in her morals with herself and god and figure out what path of life she's going down.

Well, you never really know what goes on in relationships. They may have some sort of agreement between each other that you don't know about. He may be staying with her, knowing full well that she is having affairs, because of some other personal reasons. I think most spouses know when their other halves are having affairs; they just choose to look the other way one reason or another.

And really, if she's NOT having sex with her husband, then she is certainly no call girl!

Honestly, as long as we still live in a culture where men are expected to pay on dates, we are all more or less call girls. So don't be the one to throw the first rock!

wow PP - a guy codially treating a girl to dinner as a way to thank her for the pleasure of her company and the inconvienece of chatting with someone she doesn't know is quite a bit different than handing over cash for a different type of pleasure and inconvienece. I could not disagree more!

I think it depends on whether or not the husband knows. If he does, then sadly enough, this is an understanding between husband and wife, so who are we to judge. If he doesn't know, then I would have to agree with the 10:51 poster. At least the callgirl-client relationship is understood...their investment in the relationship is just money, as compared to having a physical, psychological, emotional...and yes, financial invenstment that comes with a marital relationship.
