There are many reasons couples cheat in relationships, and one of the most important aspects to remember is that you are not alone when it comes to Infidelity.
Statistics show that 33% of one or both partners admit to infidelity; 22% of men have admitted to cheating on their significant other; 14% of women admit to cheating on their significant other, and people who cheated in the past are 350% more likely to cheat again.
As you can see, many people have experienced infidelity in their personal lives. Men are more likely to stray for sexual desire purposes and women are more likely to stray for emotional purposes.
Here Is The Reason Why People Cheat
1. Fall Out Of Love
Sometimes in a relationship, people lose that connection and intimate feelings for their significant other, resulting in that person seeking elsewhere for the attention.
2. Unsatisfied with Sex Life
There are times where people feel unsatisfied with their sex life in their relationship, causing them to seek out new partners to have their desires met.
3. Emotional Neglect
Sometimes when we feel unappreciated by our significant others, we tend to stray and find appreciation through people outside the relationship.
It is quite common for people to stray in their relationship to gain a sense of self-worth. We all want to be loved, and sometimes being with just one person does not do the trick and we find love in as many places as possible.
When we are mad at our significant others, what better way to get back at them than to cheat? When we are hurt, we want others to hurt too and sometimes infidelity is a go-to for seeking revenge in hopes that we can instill pain onto our partners.
Now that you or your partner has cheated, you must figure out WHY infidelity occurred in the first place in order to move forward. Once you figure out why taking steps to re-establishing trust is crucial.
