Why Couples Cheat

Updated on August 17, 2013


Cheating has became extremely popular in relationships, the reasons why is because of a lack communication or anger. When a spouse can't tell each other why they cheated, it has to be because they are not happy in the relationship.

The Majority of women cheat from a lack of trust, emotional reasons such as a lack of affection, children, boredom, abuse, sex and not being happy in the relationship. Eighty-five percent of men cheat for similar reasons.


Conversely, to all the research done on the subject of cheating, men are the ones that lead the pack with women closely behind. Some women feels that after marriage, all their time should be devoted to their children and the home not thinking that their spouse also need to be loved and cared for. If a man or woman can't find excitement at home he or she looks else where.

After talking to a few men about cheating some of them believed if they take care the home, the children and their spouses, it's OK to cheat if there was no sex or excitement in the marriage .. Most women will forgive their spouses for their discretion because of the family, if their spouse step out side of a relationship.

In today's society women are cheating looking on their spouses for excitement or to pay back a cheating spouse who cheated.

      Both men and women cheat it's a way of life . In today's society women are saying if a man can cheat so can I. People in high places cheat, minsters and church members stray. In the eyes of God it's wrong-but we are humans, living in a world of changes. There are a lot of hot shows on TV about cheating, the glamor, the excitement give a lot of us the idea that we can do it to.'What's good for Goose is good for the gander. jada67

      One other quick thing the "Once a cheater always a cheater" is a "protection statement" or rule one applies to themselves in order to avoid taking chances dating those who have cheated in the past.

      No sane person actually believes we could have (former smokers, former drinkers, and former drug users), but if someone has cheated in the past he or she is forever (stuck) cheating for the rest of their lives! All vices are (choices).

      Both women and men cheat. Anyone who has ever watched an episode of "Cheaters" or "The Maury Povich Show" aka (You are NOT the father!) is clearly aware neither sex is standing on "holy ground" when it comes to cheating. Both sexes lust in their heart or admire others.

      I do think the 85% of men cheating is very high especially when you consider all the religious cultures around the globe. We in the U.S. tend to think (we) are the world! The stuff that makes the news does so because it will sell more newspapers, get more website clicks, or higher TV ratings. There are lots of people who are in sexless marriages or living sexless lives!

      Last but not least we (say) cheating is wrong and then we glorify it at the same time when we make hits out of songs such as "Me & Mrs. Jones", "If Loving You is Wrong I don't Want to be Right", "Secret Lovers", "Saving All My Love For You", "Me and Mr. Wrong", and "I'm in Love with Another Man."

      Right now one of the hottest shows on TV is "Scandal" where the main character is having an affair with the president of the U.S. (Most viewers are NOT offended. They're pulling for the mistress!) Cheating is romanticized! ABC has a summer TV drama called "Mistresses". Only in America!

      Note: Women are more likely to forgive a man for cheating than a man will forgive a woman.

      Cheating is in the minds of most men, some know how to get away with it and others don't. Women are discrete and can keep a secrete as long as hell freezes over..jada67
