Adultery Among Women: The State Of Affairs

A no-nonsense teacher lives the typical urban life in Delhi. Husband in a high-powered job, two kids, a dog, a picture-perfect home, two cars, one chauffeur. Routines are set, there are dinners in classy restaurants, and exotic vacations pep up the calendar. The neighbour, an older separated man who works from home, is now an integral part of this household. The kids call him Uncle, the husband calls him his Weekend Beer Buddy, the dog calls him Treat Dispenser...and the wife, Darling! She thrives on the flirting, the sneaking around, the intimate pictures shared on Whatsapp, the frantic lovemaking before everyone gets home.

She feels no guilt.
