Busy with work and raising a family, women that are longing for the same attention they've been receiving will be faced with reality that the world does not revolve around them any longer. Both work and by the time they get home, they will be too busy to even notice each others' affection. When all the excitement is gone, women lose interest. Most cheating women that lack attention feel that they have been brought to the situation by reasons associated with being an unappreciated wife.The women want to be center of attention that she can no longer get which leads to reason #2.
  2. Boredom-Women cheat on their husbands because they are bored to death and being married. bored with married life. Most women who get married young often feels like they have not experience everything in life. They feel that there maybe other guys out there that can fill the void that she's been looking for.
  3. Lousy Sex-Women have needs also just like men do. Husbands that are selfish and only think about their own sexual pleasure tend to leave their wife with no sexual gratification. When women get to their late 30's and early 40's. In contrast, men reach their downward curve for sex plus the familiarity of their wife's features does not get the arousal they used to get.
  4. Anger towards husband-Women become angry and frustrated towards their spouse when she feels trapped with her husband's shortcomings whether it's attitude, money, or treatment. She becomes hostile towards her husband and turns to another for comfort, someone who understands her feelings and is willing to accommodate her sexually and mentally. Another aspect of anger towards her husband is when a woman is betrayed by her husband through infidelity. Cheated women's underlying motive of this type of female cheater is revenge. It is mainly about giving the philandering husband a taste of his own medicine.

If a man really loves his wife and family, he will do his best to get her back.

A cheating wife must be understood by her husband that no matter what trials their relationship has gone through, it will be worth while to save a family than forgive someone's imperfection. In order to get her back, a man must open his mind and go back to his courting days with his wife before they got married. He has to start from the start and figure out how he got her to say "yes". It's as simple as that. He can also add a few stuff that he has learned over the years on how to make her happy during their sweet married days.
