5 Reasons Why Married Men Cheat
Many marriages end in divorce due to Infidelity. Both men and women are susceptible to cheating, but men are more infamous for being unfaithful. So why is it that married men cheat after announcing to the world that they will be true to their wife until “death does them part”?
Being “bored” will never be a good enough reason for a wife, but some men find themselves yawning at their daily routine shortly after newlywed bliss. Some men don’t like for things to be so predictable.
Lack of variety or spontaneity in multiple areas cause them to seek something new, usually in the form of an extra-marital relationship.
2. The wife lets herself go
It’s natural to find yourself comfortable around your spouse when you’ve been with them for a long period of time.
At the beginning of the relationship, the woman may have taken extra care of her physical appearance to impress a man, but finds less need when they’re married.
There are men who find they’re less attracted to their wives after they stop pampering themselves like they did when they were dating.
This leads them to search for more attractive women.
3. Sexual differences
Men tend to be a bit more adventurous sexually than women.
If a husband brings up a new idea for their sex life, and his wife is not interested, he may feel that his needs aren’t being met.
They seek someone who is willing to explore with him.
4. Peer pressure
Single guys don’t change their lifestyles just because their friend got married. They may continue to date multiple women, and tell the married friend about it.
The female attention the single guy is getting can cause a husband to get jealous, or a single guy could be persuading a faithful husband to cheat on his wife because he doesn’t believe in monogamy.
5. Emotional disconnect
A marriage can produce a lot of wonderful things like children and a home. You may both have careers, and you’ll definitely have bills. The amount of time you spend with your husband could be decreasing as time goes on.
It’s easy to start seeing your loving husband as your reliable business partner instead, where the two of you only discuss money and your children.
Some men who have affairs look for an emotional connection elsewhere.
There will be women who see these as excuses as opposed to valid reasons, and there’s no good reason to break your vow you made on your wedding day to be true to your significant other, but these are common reasons a married man may be unfaithful to his wife.
