For appreciation purposes.
Sometimes women may feel rejected or not appreciated. They do household chores the whole day, they take care of the children’s need and spouse round the clock.

Just to get back at their partner/revenge
.Mostly due to being jilted upon, women try to get back at their husband because of spite. This is brought about by the anger upon knowing that their partner or the man that they love cheated on them also.
