Why Do People Cheat?
Every day people are finding out that their partners have cheated on them, but why is this the case? Wouldn’t it be easier for the unfaithful spouse to leave and let their partner move on with their life? Sure, in an idea world this would be the case; as a matter of fact, in an ideal world, people wouldn’t cheat on each other in the first place. With all that being said, the reasons for cheating are plentiful, as well as why the cheater wants to have their cake and eat it to.
The Feeling of Guilt
The partner who was cheated on shouldn’t blame themselves. However, many people who’ve had someone step out on them can’t help but feel as though they could have prevented it. Nonetheless, what’s done is done and there’s no taking it back. We’d love to tell you that it was completely out of your hands, but we can’t. Of course, there are situations in which people cheat because it’s just a part of their nature. That said, there are people who cheat because they don’t feel listened to, valued, or heavens forbid, find themselves in a sexless marriage. Whilst there were perhaps somethings that you could have handled better on your end, at the end of the day, it was your partner who chose to go astray. They could have and should have come to you first so that you could make an informed decision about whether you’d like to continue you on if your lover is having doubts.
Why Men Cheat
It is believed that when men cheat, it’s mostly to do with physical reasons. Many believe that guys can sleep with someone else still being in love with their wives or girlfriends. There have been many jokes about men who cheat, many of which involve the concept of ‘A man is only has faithful as his options’. By this we mean, if you, for instance were with a woman and you suddenly became famous, you’d have an array of women who’d be willing to bed you. If this was the case, how long do you think you’d be able to resist these women, especially if they were exceptionally attractive?
Why Women Cheat
When comes to the women who go behind the backs of their partners it is believed to be mostly for emotional reasons. Unlike a man, who’d stick his junk into anything (of so they say) women are a little more selective about who they welcome into their beds. Due to this fact, if a woman cheats on her partner, it’s likely that the love she has for her current partner has pretty much vanished.
The Problem of Time
The longer a relationship goes on, the more settled and comfortable people become. However, it’s when we become complacent that things start to go wrong. You’ll start to take your partner for granted which may not seem like a big deal at first, but over time, it’ll erode your relationship. Once you stop being the person your partner fell for, you run the risk of them seeing a better future in the arms of someone else. Don’t become too predictable and do whatever you can to keep your relationship fresh. Yes, this is easier said than done, but it’s one of the best ways to keep your relationship strong.
