Is Happiness Possible with a Married Person?
It is said that you cannot force love. So, what if I am attracted to someone who is not free to become involved in another relationship? Is happiness not more important than social rules?
In such a case, it would be better not to let the attraction turn into passion. Love is not something which is imposed on me by fate. There is always a moment when I can choose.
Do you really believe that someone who is already committed in a marriage relationship  and who tries to seduce you can truly fulfill his promises of love toward you?
As for myself, do I have the right to break up a marriage and a family and to make the judgment that they were unhappy together? Considering the suffering that this situation will bring to the children, at what price will I build this new relationship and (if there are children) what kind of life will I be able to give to them?
There will always be a great deal of suffering when one gets involved in a relationship with someone who is not unattached. And a great deal of effort will often be necessary to justify to others - and to yourself - a situation that was not right from the beginning.
Our human heart longs for more than a happiness in which the future is already compromised.
