Why does anyone cheat? Some studies say it’s a biological imperative, especially for men, whose genetics predispose them to seek out large numbers of women to impregnate, this helps populate the planet. For women the biological side to cheating would be about keeping the gene-pool clean, and having sex with a variety of partners would accomplish this.
Some people like to say it’s because they are not getting enough sex at home:
This is what one guy wrote in answer to why men cheat:
“First off I am sure if the woman who was cheated on was putting out at home he would not of been such easy prey to the terrible whore. Like when you were dating you didn’t steal guys away from other women. Well truth is once you women get your wedding cake seems like sex falls to the way side. Men’s brains are wired differently we need sex no matter what is up in the relationship, no matter how bad our day was. Can live with the once in a blue moon blow job but need to get laid regular. When a guys wife isn’t putting out then most any woman will do. Even if she is fat or ugly. Alternative is rosy palm and her 5 sisters. guess what whore will win. So withold sex the blame him.”
He is clearly a very enlightened fellow!
Do women cheat because their husbands aren’t having sex with them? I know there are men who with hold sex to exert control in marriage.
Or is it because the parties emotional needs aren’t being met?
I have read that people often cheat on their spouse simply because they can. A situation availed itself to them and they took it. Talk about low impulse control.
Marriage is supposed to be a life long partnership, but the divorce rate proves most people aren’t able to live with the same person for a lifetime.
Do you think if divorce wasn’t so easy that more people would work on their marriages?
Do you think if married people refused to have affairs with other married people marriages might stay in focus?
Do you think if single people refused to have affairs with married people marriages might get worked on?
Or do you think monogamy is an outdated concept?
