i dont know if they are or not but my guess if not as much because women are held to a higher standard than men in society. Not saying it is correct but is definitely true in some aspects of life. Men usually if held to a standard is by themselves or there peers.
I agree with you about the terminology. There are married men at the office who are known to sleep around with other women, and I have heard them called sluts or even m@nwhores, but have never heard anyone call them a homewrecker. I wonder if there is any correlation to the woman usually being referred to as a 'homemaker'?
I thought they were :S It's a US term I think though and not really used over here. We'd kind of just look down on any man or woman in that situation, regardless even if we didn't have a specific term for it.
I mean, if he's the "homewrecker", what about the woman whose family it was, choosing to do it? I don't think either party are in a particularly good light so it's unfair to just label one of them a homewrecker.
Men who sleep with married women are homewreckers, I don't know where you heard that they're not. It takes 2 or more people to cheat, both the wife and the man are guilty. But, in this current scenario, the wife is more guilty because she OWES loyalty to the husband and she has the moral obligation while the guy who cheated with her doesn't owe anything to the husband (in most cases) but still does have the moral obligation to not contribute to the destruction of a couple.
Women are always blamed like the scarlet woman and branded homewreckers i believe she is seen as the seductress and should know better in people's eyes NOT to go with a man who she knows is married even if it was him who pursued her.
