        I believe that is being worked on....fyi:  as for cheaters, they need work on a cure for themselves as well, what it is.... only they individually know....now it's just a matter of whether or not they want to fix it by fessing up.

      Oddly enough, I just wrote a hub in answer to another woman's question about this same subject. The link is here, if you care to read it:

      http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Deal-with-Cheating

      In a nutshell, cheating is the symptom of the problem...never the actual problem. There are a myriad of reasons behind the actual act of cheating, but the actual cause is the person is unsatisfied for some reason.

      I'm not saying it is their partner's fault they cheated. But it is something about how they are interacting that resulted in this outcome.

      Think of relationship problems as being a sort of cancer that is eating away at the both of you. Something isn't right and eventually, this cancer will start to cause physical problems in the form of symptoms.

      Cheating is a symptom of this cancer that is eating you both alive. Others could be jealousy, verbal and physical abuse, withdrawal, lack of a sexual relationship... there are LOTS of symptoms. We just have to see them for what they are and not treat the symptom, and treat the real PROBLEM that caused them.

      Only when you can get to the real underlying cause that the relationship isn't working, can you eliminate the symptoms and keep them from coming back.

      I have written a lot of article about cheating.

      People cheat for various reasons..boredom, sexual excitement,insecurity, revenge, values..

      mostly women cheat for emotional purposes

      most men are involved in physical cheating (casual sex etc.)

      the reasons are multi faceted and case to case basis,

      Wild title!

      Since I'm hardly qualified to judge the entire human race, I'll limit my answer to me (!) and my wife (!!) and ex-wives (!!!).

      1.  Me.  Did cheat once, toward the end of my first (of 7) marriages.  Reason:  Flailing around emotionally, angry at wife, bitter, whole host of negativity goin' on.

      2.  Wife #2:  Did once, early in the relationship.  I hadn't quit trying to be a control freak (though I was working on it), and it was her way of saying, "Oh, no you don't!"  Which I understood.  Painful, sure, but got the point across.

      3.  Wife #4:  Did once, late in the relationship.  Her way of trying to sort of "push me out the door". 

      4.  Present wife:  Did with 15 to 30 different partners, early on.  Reasons:  (1) Hadn't bottomed out on alcohol yet, (2) Hadn't yet figured out (after being molested by her father) that she COULD say no.  Note:  That all went down during our first 2 years together.  None since, and we've now been hooked at the hip for 13 years and counting.

      Jeryposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I think God created us with a strong desire to procreate and cheating is the result of these desires. Men of course have got it bad! While women not as much.Truth be known most men would have sex with a whole lot of women a whole lot of the time if they could. This is what's at the core of the issue (I feel) but of course there can be other variables involved in specific situations.
      My take on the subject for what it's worth.

    11. marcel285 profile image82
      marcel285posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      People cheat because they care more about their sexual urges than their partner.

      If someone cheats ONCE, yet they truly love their partner deeply, then they have made poor judgment. Perhaps due to intoxication? If so, this person might not be able to handle their piss. Alcohol changes people, that could be a reason.

      If one cheats being fully aware of what they are doing, this is pure selfishness. Selfishness may cause one to be unaware of how their actions might effect others, or maybe a selfish person simply doesn't care if they hurt others to get what they want. Perhaps a selfish person knows what their doing is wrong, and know full well that their partner would be devastated if they found out they had been cheated on..It doesn't matter THAT much to a selfish person anyway, because their needs and wants come first.

      If someone cheats reapeatedly, that person has no respect for their partner at all, and possibly no respect for themselves.

  2. floating mind profile image83
    floating mindposted 7 years ago

    I do not think it is possible to get a direct answer to your question.  Because, the reasons why people cheat can vary greatly from one person to the next.  Even if you place two different couples that cheat, in the same place, at the same time, you will find that each person will more than likely give a totally different reason as to why they cheated.

    Getting an honest answer is more doable, provided you are dealing with people who want to give a honest answer.

    Good luck.

  3. Cagsil profile image60
    Cagsilposted 7 years ago

    Actually I find this pretty easy to answer- Romance is gone, trust issues, and a severe lack in communication in the present relationship.

    Therefore, one would easily cheat, because they probably feel it's already over. However, there are some who go into an affair, and feel guilty. Some don't.

    Either way, it's not a good direction for the relationship, no matter how you slice it.

    Hope I helped.

    Okay...I found from my ex-husband, he cheated because he wasn't happy, wanted more, thought the grass was greener.

    That extra curricular affair ended in a 3 month marriage and a daughter he pays through the nose for...love it!

    From what I have gathered from some friends (male and female) this happens because they are not receiving what they would like from the relationship.  Without clear communication and a solution to the problem(s), they seek counsel, support as well as physical/emotional/mental contact outside of their relationship.

      If you're unhappy in your marriage, leave.  To go on using your partner as a crutch, or a paycheck, or a f*ckbuddy until you can find something better, is just plain cowardly and unfair on your partner.

        That's just choices - you get what you choose.
        And you can call a cheater whatever you like - a whore, a sinner, a lost soul - that's you choice too. Just think about the words that come to your mind about the person whom your partner cheated with... should be quite spicy wink
        All those words, attitude (whore), tears, etc. is just your psychological defence - there's nothing you can change about it, no shortcut - you'll have to live with it. That's a big injustice, such whores should be set on fire straight away (remember how they did it in middle ages?), but it happens.

        The life on the other side of the fence also goes on, sometimes with "sorry" and roses, sometimes laughing at it when in bed with the next partner.

        No personal reference in the above. I'm a woman too, and would not like to be cheated on. But for now there is no insurance to get you covered on this.

        PS. As much as I've concerned, the most fun you get is cheating on cheaters. Requires a lot of time and energy though.

            I think you didn't quite get it...there's nothing painful in that.
            Saying "cheating on cheaters" I did not have in mind my partner cheating and me then cheating back (back and forth drama). Not the case.
            What I meant was dating a cheater (cheating on his partner), and then finding someone else on top of that (someone else who would also be cheating on his partner), whom he would know, but won't be able to do anything about it - like his boss wink (the first one knows, but has no control over it, and the second one has no clue).
            The most fun you have when after a long period of time everyone starts to understand what's going on and who has feelings for whom (on condition that the one in love is not you, and your own partner does not know about this "triangle"). Most of the times the first cheater gets in too deep.
            And if you involve yet someone else, like cheater No.3 or No.4...it gets really complicated big_smile

            Like I said, it's very intense, you learn a lot about people. And you do not judge or condemn on these grounds anymore.

                It's no cat-bird thing. It's poker - everyone knows what bets they make.
                The only bad thing here is cheating on your own partner. And I'm really not proud of this part, but the others...just fun.

    I think people cheat because they are unhappy in their present relationship. But I do believe that once a cheater always a cheater. It's the same with addiction, some people have addictive personalities and some don't. Back in the 70's, I had a friend and we partied. We tried various drugs and she became addicted to cocaine and I didn't. She lost everything she had before she got her act together. It took her over 20 years to give up all the junk and booze and that whole scene, while I tried some stuff and didn't become addicted. I guess it's a different mind set or life experience or something.

    Unfortunately there is a tendency to get married before being ready for the committment. This has nothing to do with physical age or depth of emotional feeling. Before getting married you have to ask yourself,
    "Am I prepared, that for the rest of my life, this is the only person I will ever have sex with?"
    Unless that question can be honestly, from deep down, answered with an affirmative, then marriage is not the answer.
    It is important, for our own happiness as well as the happiness of those we love, that we be true to ourselves in this regard. If it means never getting married so be it. This must be addressed first.

    History lesson : back in the late 60s early 70s (I read somewhere) the natives were restless after all that "wife-swapping" in the 50s and early 60s.  So - some of them had this idea to eliminate "cheating" by just taking "swapping" a tad further.  It was called "open marriage"  Remember?  Now, that turned out well for, oh, maybe 3 people.  Oh wow.  But I think of it wistfully, something in me would like to believe it possible to live in a world where there is no cheating, thus no whores, love is free - everyone free to have sex with whomever (except maybe, chickens - yuck) and children would still know who their father is because now - now we have DNA tests!

      Whatever name its called , its basically advocating sex without committment right?  which works if one beleives we are 'animals' I guess.

      The chicken thing reminds me just last week a guy was arrested for having sex with his previous employers horse...apparently his second offence...

      So Im thinkin ...on one hand its abhorant, on the other , freedom to choose??  except of courseI daresay the horse had no say wink

        Doesn't necessarily mean there is a lack of commitment to each other just because you agree to have sex with other people (responsibly, I add hastily)  I don't know why I brought it up, the one time I was in a relationship like that where we agreed (sorta) to have an "open" relationship I got insanely jealous and moved to a city on the other coast!  So . . . I just wanted to see what people thought of it.  I try to have an open mind big_smile

        as for bestiality, it really sickens me - and I don't want to talk about it - I love animals too much! big_smile no really, it is mole-estation!  or it could be, with moles.  Dam  I didn't want to make jokes about this.  big_smile

          I agree, you can't say someone is unfaithful if they're open and upfront about it with their partner, and their partner approves.  However as you say, approving in principle and coping with it in practice can be two different things!

    I'm sure every situation is unique, sometimes it's rather simple, sometimes it isn't. I know marriage is supposed to be for better or worse, but I don't think too many people can live for too long under worse conditions. The short answer is, if there is true love there won't be cheating, if there isn't then it's time to move on and accept the fact that sometimes people fall out of love.

    I think sometimes it's "the grass is greener" syndrome rearing it's head.  If you're happy in your relationship you may be tempted but you don't want to ruin what you've got so you resist.  If you're unhappy you may continue looking, even subconsciously, for something more.  Sometimes it's the rush.  I think it depends on the person and their relationship.

    People can cheat for any number of reasons. 
    Their current relationship could be all but over, and they are looking to move on.
    While they still may love their partner, they maybe bored with the physical aspect of it.
    They may be looking for some sort of affirmation that they still can get the attention of a younger generation.
    They may be into certain fetishes that their partners will not comply to, or that they are too embarrassed to confess to their partner.
    Then you always have to take into consideration the moment of weakness situation.

    In the end, there is no one reason that someone cheats.  People do what they do for thier own reasons.

      That was profound BnL.  I've never really analized my reasons before (I suppose I was not looking for an excuse) but all your reasons are valid.  Boredom with the same hanky panky, desire to try new things that your current partner doesn't want to, reaffirmation that you can still get attention from someone younger and good looking, fetishes...  and of course there is also the UPS! "not sure why I did that" LOL

    In any case if your woman has cheated on you that doesn't make her a "whore". For whatever reason she strayed and it's best to let her go and remember the good times you had together and to now seek more of the same with someone new.

    Why people cheat eh? Hem... I didn't cheat, so I didn't know what I should tell you. But from what I heard from my friends, it's not about being bored, it's just that they want to "have some fun". And of course, since it's just to "have some fun", it's not considered as cheating until... yeah, they cheated.

    It totally depends on circumstances. Perhaps an old love seems new again and is simply too tempting to resist. Perhaps the person doing the cheating feels like they've been wronged and the relationship has been soiled anyway so screw it! Maybe they're tired of being second on the list of importance and the new person makes them feel like they are the only one one on the list.

    Not that i would know or anything. I am not a whore or bored, though. wink

    There are different reasons why people cheat.
    More often than not it's to fill some type of void which may or may not reside in his or her relationship.

    Cheating is a cowardly selfish act committed by those who lack the courage to ask for what they want or leave their current relationship.

    Cheating is about being unable or unwilling to communicate a change of heart.
    Once you determine you no longer want to keep a promise or vow you have made to someone... You owe it to them to let them know.

    Monogamy is NOT NATURAL.
    It's a "Life style choice" which requires maturity, self-discipline, and a personal moral code which places honesty as the top priority when dealing with loved ones.

    Making any promise "for life" will have it's challenges.
    "Forsaking all others". Exchanging vows are akin to promising to eat low fat foods, lean meats, and working out 3-4 times a week forever.

    Most people making the promise actually mean it at the time. The gyms are always packed in January but by May or June the numbers are down to the die hard and truly committed regulars.
    Temptation is all around and those who are weak will slip easily.
    As I mentioned before monogamy requires self-discipline.
    Maturity is also needed to be able to communicate a change of heart before stepping out on someone.
