Maya Angelou said "When someone shows you who they are, believe them". This man might be telling you what he thinks you want to hear, but he is doing what is easy and convenient for him.
Look at it as does he want to change to potentially have me in his life?
If he's comfortable with the status quo, then let him be comfortable with the status quo by himself. He's getting some companionship and doesn't have to deal with the fallout of his marriage.
We had a great friendship, but I had to wake up to the fact that this relationship wasn't going where I wanted it to, which was marriage.
I also came to realize that even if this man ever did divorce his wife and marry me, I would always come in second to his children. I knew I wanted a husband where I would be #1 in his life.
