A Cheating We Will Go
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Maybe using a nursery rhyme such as "A Hunting We Will Go" to describe the outcome of infidelity is asking too much for some, I just know that is what goes through my head when I think of the "other woman". So many times this has happened that it is almost a cliché but, it keeps happening, This leads me to believe that many of these "other woman" are just out for a thrill ride and have no destination other than to join in the rhyme.

This works both ways but men do it more and we should change that last line to "let her go". Since men are the biggest cheaters we think their "other woman" are the "biggest losers" but that is not always true and here is why.

If you have ever heard the nursery rhyme "A Hunting We Will Go" by Thomas Arne you know that each stanza ends with "And then we'll let him go!".

If you change the word hunting to the word cheating you can see why that last line is so important. Even though the hunters captured their prey they only wanted to play "And then we'll let him go!". Almost like out of a children's nursery rhyme those that cheat are of the same mold as the hunters.

These men sense that a woman is attracted to them and they go on the hunt, "A cheating we will go". It does not seem to matter how long it takes, "a cheating we will go", "a cheating we will go". Once they decide to go in for the kill they have convinced the "other woman" to go along with them, "heigh ho, the dairy-o, a cheating we will go". Once they bag their game and have their fun, it always comes to an end, "And then we'll let him go!".

The "other woman" so we are led to believe, is left feeling alone and used and has nowhere to turn. And because she is a cheater she can't go to her family or friends because she would have to admit to being a cheater. Her many attempts to contact her prince with all the promises fail because she finds the number she was using for the last several weeks or months no longer works.

No matter, some of these women just pick themselves up, brush themselves off and are looking around for the next wayward husband. These women know ahead of time what they are getting into and the excitement of the hunt makes them sing-a-long to "A Cheating We Will Go".

This is a great game when both participants know the rules and it does offer a lot of entertainment but they become bored and that's when you need to be on your guard. The number of broken hearts strewn over the rocks of infidelity are too many to count and in most cases the only one who really loses is the wife because the "other woman" knows the rhyme and the poor wife does not. So if you are contemplating becoming the "other woman" just remember the chances of him leaving his wife are extremely low.

If you have caught your husband cheating and believe the other woman is a victim to, just remember the nursery rhyme and that chances are good she could care less whether your marriage endures.
