She was acting on emotion. I dont think she shifted her mindset - she was just held back by fear / guilt. It's been said more than a few times on here - The LBS is in fear of losing their partner etc, but the WW also has fear of the unknown.

To me this comes back to the self respect of both Brad and Cooper. They didnt know their true value and put her worth above their own self respect.
I did that once, and i suspect 99% of the LBS here did - the pleading, the reasoning, explaining themselves, bending over backwards to prove to the WW that you are the catch - and with every action the self respect of the LBS gets chipped away.

Again, self respect. She played him. Where is the trust if hes tracking her.

Agreed! I will say it again. Marriages will be obsolete or implemented differently in the next 50 years.

JJ it makes perfect sense. Emotions over logic and reason is the WW creed.

I don't know if I agree that Brad was being played. She was a married woman who "chose" her husband.

Kids are also the ones to suffer in the long run.

I don't even think she was that unhappy she gave into her emotions like most WWs. Without seeking professional help and seeking what's really going on in her mind.

I think when things were good with Brad she was filled up physically and emotionally. Due to the fading affect bias she forgot that when things were bad with Brad they were really bad. Abuse/cheating etc.

That was bizarre. They all go to the play at the school and then Coop takes the kids home and she go out???? Always trust your gut!

The institution of marriage has constantly evolved through history. Also, at any given point of time marriages have meant vastly different things in different regions, cultures, religions, social structures etc. The one thing that won't change is the need for people to have relationships whether it is based on physical, emotional, political, material or any other need. Marriage will continue to be a tool that serves that need regardless of what whether it is called marriage or by some other name smile

I think a lot from the LBS perspective were accurate. I think at first Billie was Wayward, but the last episode she knew what she was doing and that can't be forgiven.

Also, Coop didn't believe a word she told him, he put that tracker on her a##. LOL



I was shocked by the ending. 100% wayward and 100% selfish.

and Cooper is right - there is a huge dark stain on not just the marriage but him.

This selfish woman turned a good man into something he didn't even recognize

Agreed, but it's always the children who suffer. We write about our experiences as adults and sometimes forget what it's like to be a child going through a divorce.

My parents divorced after us kids left home and it still hurt knowing our family's security was taken away and everything we believed in was shattered.

Waywards put their own emotions above everything else. As Sandi said, they "crown themselves with entitlement." They are selfish beasts.

Just want to chime in on a +1 to the butterfly tat thing.

Couple years ago WW came back from a hiking trip with a butterfly tattoo.
she had 2 more affairs before she left and filed with OM who has now dumped her, since she was talking to his friend.

I will most likely binge watch the remaining episodes this weekend. Both men have good and bad traits. I will incorporate any of the good ones into my behavior. Always helps keep my relationship with my woman interesting and fun.

I bet most of use men here relate to Cooper more than Brad. Learning and effectively adding that 15% Billie craves into our behavior is difficult but achievable. Brad is a good study. Watch how his words effect Billie. Cooper is clueless on how to do this. There are ways to have your woman thinking about you like Billie thinks of Brad. It takes effort, but the results are worth the effort. You will be the one hearing "the last two words".
