GETTING INVOLVED with a married man seldom ends happily. Unless you’re in it for a good time and it’s more friends with benefits than courtship it’s a train wreck waiting to happen.

Daily Beast chronicles a few high profile lovers who married the other woman.

Former Gov. Mark Sanford, who got caught with his Appalachian Trails lie hanging out, is now engaged to Maria Belen Chapur, the woman he went AWOL over to visit in Argentina.

“Yes, we are engaged, and I’m both happy and excited for what that means,” Sanford said in the statement to CNN. “I have long expressed my feelings for her; she’s a wonderful person. My closest friends have met and love her, and I look forward to introducing her to still many more that have yet to do so.” [The Hill]

Ladies, don’t try this without a guide and some good advice. It’s a recipe for a broken heart or worse, ravaged lived all ’round.
