According to the new RomCom, The Other Woman, the female of the species can be categorized in at least one of several specious ways. First, they can be a trusting and totally committed spouse who gets blindsided by an adulterous husband. The trauma that results from such a breakup turns the otherwise functioning housewife into a simpering psycho who struggles to sound coherent and fails at acting adult. She is destined to be downplayed as an uninspiring partner until the mandatory make-over and/or discovery that she is really the brains behind her hateful hubby’s success. By the end, she’s both the conqueror and the conquered, happy to be manless but equally unhappy for the same reason.
