A lot of people believe that infidelity is unacceptable and a taboo. However, why is that there’s still a number of people engaged in this, even though they know it’s wrong? Based on studies, infidelity is often linked to adverse outcomes, such as domestic violence, depression, divorce, and sometimes, even homicide. If we’ll try to open our eyes and consider these negative effects, would this help us figure out the real reason why a person cheats? Is it true that “once a cheater, always a cheater?”
Let’s find out as we delve into the top 4 reasons why people cheat.
1. Lack of Emotional Connection
As a relationship matures, it turns into a two-edged sword. It could either make a relationship stronger, or it could be the reason for a relationship to slowly break apart. Power struggles become more prevalent, and when a man experiences frequent power struggles with his partner, his natural tendency is to go to a place where he could breathe. The emotional connection that used to be strong would eventually get more vulnerable and open to temptations
Eventually, one would start missing the emotional bond that he used to have with his partner. This would tempt him to look for someone else– someone who would accept him for “who he is.” As he finds this person, he’ll develop feelings for her, even when he’s still committed.
