Children Born From Extramarital Affairs
Dr. Reena Sommer
Infidelity statistics reveal that 45% of married women and 48% of married men are having extramarital affairs (Atwood & Schwartz,2002). Given these figures, it should not come as a big surprise that there are also children born from extramarital affairs. At this time, estimates of children born from extramarital affairs are not known. However, suffice to say, this consequence of infidelity is likely sizeable.
The fact of the matter is that the widespread nature of infidelity has produced many children born from extramarital affairs. The question is - what will become of these children born from extramarital affairs? Will they suffer? Will they be disadvantaged (financially, psychologically or socially) because they are children born from extramarital affairs? Will they be able to develop meaningful relationships with both of their parents? Will they have a family life that they deserve? These are all valid questions that come to mind when one thinks about the children born from extramarital affairs?
It is not to say that all children born from extramarital affairs are destined to live a disadvantaged life. Since any child's wellbeing is dependent largely upon what their parents can provide, there is no doubt that many with thrive and do well. The issue remains, how much thought goes into what lies ahead for these children born from extramarital affairs? And what if any consideration goes into the fact that they may be innocent victims of potentially painful relationship dynamics.
The bottom line is - extramarital affairs do not happen by accident as is the case for most pregnancies. It makes sense that people begin to think beyond themselves and consider the consequences of their actions.
