Have You Ever Been the Other Woman?

This weekend, famous dad of eight Jon Gosselin was spotted in romantic France holding hands with his new girlfriend Hailey, who also happens to be the 23-year-old daughter of the doctor who did Kate Gosselin's complimentary tummy tuck. Now that Jon and Kate have announced their divorce, it seems that Jon and his new woman aren't afraid to show their affection.

As outsiders, it's hard to know what's really going on behind the scenes. Maybe Jon and Kate have both moved on. Still, I'm sure this photo, and previous affair rumors, won't do much to stifle Hailey's reputation as "the other woman" who has come between Jon, his wife, and their eight children.

Have you ever been with someone who was already spoken for? Feel free to elaborate on the circumstances in the comments.

To all the other women: What makes you so special? Haven't you ever heard the saying "If he cheats WITH you, he'll cheat ON you."? And this is more directed and those who were the OW unknowingly and then decided to continue in the relationship. It's just sad that you settle for a man who is of so poor character. You deserve better.

i guess you could say i was - unknowingly at first. i met this guy where i worked (now my current boyfriend) and he kept pursuing me & i was resistant as i still had feelings for my ex. but nonetheless he kept pressing on. we texted, called, & finally i agreed to go out with him. that first night he told me he was going through a divorce! he was still living with her, in the process of moving out. i was oblivious to the fact that his then wife thought i was the reason he left. i know now that wasn't the case & things had been over for a long time. i know his ex blames me, he blames her, & i'm stuck in the middle half way feeling guilty & happy at the same time. it's awkward & not something i would have ever chosen, but it's my life now & i love the man i'm with.

It's beneath me to be the other woman. I am better than that, and I dont' know how women can stoop to that level if they know what's going on.

Yes, but like others I didn't realize it. I didn't realize it until way after the fact. It just reinforced to me that I was right about dumping him!

Anybody who is the "other woman" ought to be ashamed of themselves.

If I ever caught my husband having an affair with "the other woman", I wouldn't give her a second thought. She wouldn't be worth a second of my time. In my opinion, it doesn't matter if she knew or not. His promise was to me, and he's the one I would deal with by kicking his butt straight to the curb. No second chances on that one.

I am currently the other woman, but don´t care too much because I know I'm not going to end up with him. I love him but he's not for me. He's so much older and I'm just having fun. Sounds bad for some but I don´t see it that bad. If men can get involved with someone with no feelings I guess women can do it too.

yes i was the other woman, not knowing at first, then willingly.. long time go.. he was had a gf, but i was much in love with this person.. with a low selfesteem... i thought that if he wanted me by his side was because he cared about me.. and i didnt care if i was just his side dish.. we were in a sort of relationship on and off for 2 years.. know looking back i regret it.. not because i could have hurt his gf, but because the damage that did to me... i never tought i was good enough for a guy... i ended the relationship.. and we still have a polite relationship.. but thats it.. nothing more.. i have found a guy that treats me right.. :D

I would never and have never! I respect other women and myself way too much to stoop to that level. I know too many women with children who's men have "other women". These women go through pure emotional hell. Raising their children, waiting up all night for a call, wondering where they are, when they're coming home and who they're with. It's terrible. My aunt is currently "the other woman" in her relationship right now. The guy has children with his wife too. I can't even look at her I'm so disgusted. Anon- 10:51 You better hope the man you fall in-love with for the first time doesn't find "another woman" who has no problem with not telling you.

Yes, unknowingly and not for very long. As soon as I found out he had TWO OTHER GIRLFRIENDS - One in America and one local then I forced him to break up with them. I should have just left right then!

Veka - It was the hardest thing I ever did, but it was well worth it in the end :)

Anonymous 44 (1:23) - My boyfriend was going through a hard time as well when this was going on. He was having a very hard time finding his life path (career mostly) and it was eating him up on the inside (he felt worthless). I felt the same way when he did this to me, my self esteem dropped in the toilet. When all of this was going on, I was having some issues of my own, so this situation really didn't help me. Exact same as you, not making excuses, but it does start to explain his actions. Some of his friends are friends with this girl too, so we may have to encounter her one day at a social event. I swear, if the minor details were left out of your post, it sounds like something I could have written. Trust is so hard to build up and SO easy to break. *big hugs* If you ever want to talk about it more, feel free to send me a private message. :) Have a good day!

Thanks for the reply, danakscully. I'm glad to hear that you were both able to get past it. Same goes to Anonymous @ 1:23am.

I was the other woman, willingly. would i do it differently now? absolutely. At the time I felt like I needed that person in my life to be stronger, and i realize now that I was only making myself weaker.
