Can You Love Two People at the Same Time

By Jenny

Can you love two people at the same time? There is nothing more entertaining for an outsider than a love triangle. You only have to look at reality TV to see whenever there is someone torn between two other people, it means good ratings. When people have affairs, it can be for a number of reasons. Sometimes it will end the other relationship and yet others choose a clandestine arrangement.

Can you love two people at the same time? For some, the answer is 'yes.' It could be different qualities that one appreciates in each person, say if one offers something the other doesn't. Falling in love with two people at the same time is entirely possible. So what is the problem? The simple answer is jealousy. While there seem to be more and more people living in open relationships, a common reaction to finding out your partner is also in love with someone else is a deep feeling of betrayal and jealousy. There are also many people who manage to heal their relationship from the damage done by infidelities.

In the celebrity world, the public watched with mouths opened as a more and more depressed Princess Diana became forlorn over her husband's affair with his now wife Camilla. Couples such as David and Victoria Beckham and Bill and Hillary Clinton are examples of high profile couples who have survived infidelities. It is also interesting to see how differently men and women are judged. When Kristin Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson, she was judged harshly. Angelina Jolie is also alleged to have had many affairs with 'taken' men in Hollywood before the infamous Brad Pitt scandal. Having a reputation as the other woman is somehow a lot worse than Brad Pitt, the man who was actually in a relationship at the time. Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time and Angelina was single and yet he is still widely loved and avoided much of the blame that was heaped upon Jolie.

Affairs are obviously just a fact of life, but do you often think about all of the affairs that go on and are never discovered? The hacking and leaking of clients of Ashley Maddison - the cheating website sure must have made a lot of people nervous.
