    Why do some men cheat on their wives?

    Why is that some  men have  no self control. Are there cogent reasons why men cheat on their wives?

    I believe that there could be many reasons, and that they are mostly quite subjective(depending on the person).

    However, there is one reason which doesn't depend on the person so much, and that is attraction. While partially being able to control it with our minds, males will always be attracted to other females.

    It just depends on how strongly we are willing to dedicate ourselves to this one person. Sometimes, in times of desperation or "need", men will cheat on their wives, sometimes... they are just simply what they call jerks. I'm sure there is a large number of reason, but... as i'm not planning to go into the "cheating business" any time soon, i don't really know many reasons why people would do it(except that they have maybe chosen the wrong woman to be their wife, and they can't admit it).

    I think some men cheat due to personality defects. They seem to have two sides or live two separate lives.
    Some were raised by cheating fathers and saw this behavior as normal.
    Some think anything is allowed as long as they don't get caught.
    Still others say it's just physical and doesn't mean anything. Cheaters  justify their actions in their own minds.

    Lack of self control is one of them like you said, another would be  boredom, the have become bored with their spouse and need some change just for a little while.  Spouse doesn't arouse them as before, amongst other things there are literally hundreds of reasons why some men cheat.
