It’s peculiar that people who use the internet more frequently also have more affairs. Being cheated on by your partner is a sad thing, but before blaming others and instead of being suspicious all the time, it is always better to get deeper into the real reasons for cheating and try to avoid them.
We are big supporters of healthy relationships and want everyone to live happily ever after!
Who cheats in a relationship?
There are plenty of studies about this topic, but the main thing to note is that women are just as likely to cheat as men are.
Alicia Walker spoke to more than 50 women who were between the ages of 24 and 54 and revealed in her book The Secret Lives of Cheating Wives that women in their early 40s were most likely to cheat. But nobody wants to leave their marriage! They’re just looking for a new experience.
Women are becoming equal to men but their reasons for cheating may be different. Most often, men are driven by desire while women are seeking out an emotional connection.
Reasons why people cheat in a relationship and how to avoid them:
1. Lack of passion in a relationship
This was the most common reason noted by individuals in one of the studies. You can have emotional harmony with your partner but if there’s always been a lack of passion, it may end with cheating.
How to avoid it:
- Talk to your partner, be open about your needs, and try not to deny the needs of your partner right off the bat.
- Don’t be afraid to experiment.
- You can try sessions together with a psychologist if you don’t know how to start discussing this problem yourself.
