Mind of the married man!

I'll earn the wrath of all many but that won’t deter me from making this point: married men aren’t really safe. If you thought your daughter, sister, wife or mother is safer with a married man than a single guy, you better reconsider the decades old thumb rule. Married men are earning the reputation of being the most lecherous. Umpteen theories support my argument and the most common being that married guys are so bored of their wives that they’re ‘compelled’ to look for thrill outside. Infidelity doesn’t shock me anymore.

Landlords need to change their rules. Being a bachelor, I’ve often been refused accommodation because the landlord felt a bachelor is a constant threat to his wife, sister or daughter. He is mistaken. The chances of his married tenant making a pass at the women is higher. Recently I witnessed the audacity of the lecherous married men who wouldn’t hesitate to make a move on their friends’ wives or their own wives’ best friends.

I’m sure many of you have faced this awkward situation. I know of this senior hotelier, who’s married and has two kids, exploiting his power to bed any woman approaching him for a sponsorship or discounted deal. He takes the lady to show the room that he is offering in the sponsorship deal and once inside the room, starts showering compliments on them.

Also, most men behind the infamous ‘casting couch’ are married. The pot-bellied senior manager at a corporate bash will have his hands all over his subordinate’s wife’s curvaceous bod. And if a woman talks to them or smiles a bit, they think she’s ‘game’ — ‘Hansi to phansi’ (if she smiles, she’s game).
