8 Signs A Married Man Is In Love With Another Woman (You)

Why Do Married Men Fall For Other Women?

Getting in a relationship with a man or woman who is already married isn’t a taboo anymore. Why stay in a relationship which isn’t satisfying and is going nowhere? When there are so many choices available, which married man wouldn’t fall for another woman? 

Whether married or not, a man is a man. Once married, a man will find every other woman attractive except for the woman at home. There can be several reasons for married men to fall for other women. 

Marriage contract

Marriage is a legal contract that brings two people together in a long term relationship. Once married, you are bound to have a physical relationship with one person, which can become monotonous and boring over time. There are equal chances for married men and women to fall for people outside their marriage.


The good self that you got to see of your partner before marriage might have been an illusion just to lure you. Once married you get to see every aspect (good and bad) of your partner and regret your decision to marry this person. 


Finding your wife cheating on you can evoke revenge. Once the trust is broken, the relationship will only go downhill. There are fair chances of a hurt husband to get emotionally and physically involved with another woman.

Social status

Some other reasons for falling for another woman could be to gain social status, monetary gains or career uplift. To get a promotion or a better social status, a man may find himself hooked up with his boss or a woman who is enjoying higher stature in society. This will also result in improved economic status so to some men, why not?

There are chances that there isn’t a single solid reason for a man to fall another woman except for fun. Yes, you heard that right. Men can initiate a physical relationship just because they enjoy having sex with more than one woman.    

8 Signs a Married Man is in Love with You

Whether you are a student, a working woman, single or married to someone, there are chances of a man married to someone else fall in love with you. It can happen without you knowing about his previous marriage but these 8 signs will help you know that he is not only married but is also in love with you.

1. He will praise you more often

Getting compliments from men is normal. Whether you work together or just met at a bar, men are in habit of praising women but if you get more than usual compliments from the same person it means he is showing signs of interest. It may sound casual at first but will change into flirting and relationship building in no time.

2. His body language will say it all

For an already married man, it is difficult to express love for another woman straightforwardly. His body language, on the other hand, will say he loves you in various ways. He will look at you differently. Making eye contact while talking, smiling while listening to you talk, leaning towards you while in conversation, opening the car door for you or even getting nervous while around you are subtle signs of his interest in you. 

3. Ring mark but no ring

A married man, if falling for another woman, will meet her without his ring on. If you are seeing a man with a ring mark but no ring, it’s a sign that he is married but wants to keep it from you. It is difficult for a married man to fall for another woman with the ring as a constant reminder of his marriage. To save himself from the guilt, he will meet you without putting on his ring. If he still has feelings for his wife and is getting involved with you, he might keep his ring on but will continuously play with it unconsciously.  

4. He will share his problems

If a married man is going through a mid-life crisis; at work or home, he will share his problems with you. If he feels a connection with you, he will surely confide in you. His opening up about his private matters surely means that he is interested in you and trusts you with his problems and issues. By talking about his marriage issues he is assuring you that he will be getting out of his previous relationship and be with you in no time. Not just his problems, he will also share his hopes and dreams and deepest desires along with his genuine feelings for you.

5. He will show jealousy

If he interrupts you while you are talking to some other guy or gives looks of displeasure when he sees someone approaching you, it means he is feeling threatened by the presence of another man in your life and does not approve of it. Jealousy is a sign that he has feelings for you and does not want anyone else to be around you. If you are in a relationship and talk to him about your private life he wouldn’t be interested in listening and if he listens he will encourage you to get out of the relationship which is good for nothing and that you deserve better in life.

6. He tries to remain close to you

Whether it is a long-distance relationship or you live close by, a man who is interested in you will make any excuse to come to see you or talk to you frequently. No matter how much he is needed at his own home by his family, a married man will do anything to take time out of his work and home life to spend time with you. He wouldn’t care whether it’s a weekday or a weekend, if staying close to you makes him feel good, he wouldn’t miss a single chance.
If you work together, he will find petty excuses to come talk to you or be with you throughout the day and that’s a signal that he has feelings for you.

7. He wants to see you laugh

The man who loves a woman will do anything to keep her happy and smiling. If a man is being witty around you, it’s a sign that he likes it when you smile. You will find him the most charming man among a group of people and he will make sure that you are attentive and listening to what he says. He wants you to see him as a lively person and not someone who is troubled by his family issues.

8. Your instinct

A man who is in love will give several signs before actually speaking it out loud. Men find it difficult to verbally express their love. A woman’s instinct is a strong judge of character. Whether this man is right for you or not, loves you or not, your gut will tell you about how feels about you and whether his intentions are noble or not. Deep down in your heart, you will know how he feels about you and the sincerity of his feelings.   

 Does The Married Man Really Love You? 

Women have this strong ability to figure when a man is falling in love with her. Men are difficult to understand especially a man who is in a long term relationship with another woman. If a married man is approaching you with interest in his eyes and love in his heart, you would probably think more than twice about getting in a relationship with him. You might ask yourself questions like, “does he really love me?” or “how long will he take to make things straight with his wife and leave you in the middle of nowhere?”

The situation with a married man can be complicated no matter how easy he makes it sound. You need to know whether his love for you is real or just a fling without getting involved emotionally. 

So how to know if he is in love with you or not?

For starters, If he genuinely loves you, he will introduce you to his friends and family. He will not hide his relationship with you since he wants to take it to the next level.

Secondly, he will stop wearing his wedding ring. A wedding ring is a sign that he is still not sure where his marriage is going and may end up leaving you for his family. If he has stopped wearing his ring altogether it is a sign that he has made up his mind about getting out of his previous relationship and starting a new life with you.

Thirdly, if he has children he will introduce you to them not as a friend but as a girlfriend.
