As more Covid-19 restrictions begin to ease around the globe, individuals are ready to go back to old habits - which for some, includes infidelity.
With May 17th being the day bars and restaurants re-open in the U.K, many cheating spouses are looking at the event opportunity to meet up with their secret lovers once more.
As a result, Monday has now been dubbed “affair day.” No, we’re not joking.
On ITV’s This Morning, multiple viewers called in to talk about their worries about their partner having an affair. Some viewers cried uncontrollably over their worries about the lifting of restrictions.
One cheating spouse told the Mail: “Lockdown has been cruel to people like us with unsuspecting husbands, wives, and children at home.
“We are wholly reliant on anonymous hotels to steal precious evenings and weekends together. It’s a wonder I haven’t gone crazy, cooped up at home with my husband of 16 years, whose best shot at romance these days is occasionally remembering to put petrol in the car and a son and two daughters so attached to their phones I can’t remember the last time they looked me in the eye.”
She has been involved in an affair with a man for the past eight years. Despite the affair, she says she is still committed to her husband, and her lover is still committed to his wife.
In addition to the U.K re-opening bars and restaurants, many states in the U.S. have also begun easing restrictions, allowing bars and restaurants to operate at full capacity. Last week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced restaurants, bars, and other businesses can reopen at full capacity beginning May 19. In addition, restaurants and bars within Connecticut and New Jersey will re-open at full capacity on May 19.
On May 10th, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced the city would lift all capacity limits on restaurants beginning Friday, May 21. Certain bars, nightclubs, and live entertainment venues in the area will also return to normal operations on June 11.
The decision occurred shortly before the CDC finally cleared the way for fully vaccinated Americans to go without wearing masks in most situations.
