One survey found that 2.2% of married people reported that they had had more than one partner during a year. In general, according to researchers, between 15–25% of married Americans have affairs and men are more likely to engage in cheating than women. And there is a question as to why husbands who cheat don’t want to divorce, but still keep cheating.
We prefer to be objective about this topic and found 8 reasons why husbands don’t want to leave their wives for good.
1. His home is still the best place, in his opinion.
He’s known you forever, you cook for him, and you take care of the kids. He is comfortable with his life and is looking for an affair because he wants to try something new, not necessarily because he wants to change his life. Home for a husband like this is a castle.
There is no question in his head about whether he should leave. He doesn’t want this because, without his wife, it would be difficult for him to manage the house. Maybe there is no love or passion anymore, but there are friendship and respect. He just wants a comfort zone where he can take the best nap.
2. He is just looking for a “break.”
A CEO of one dating site for married people who are looking for affairs said in an interview that there are many of these types of cases when you have a good relationship with your partner. They are a part of a good family group, both have duties, but cheaters are not looking for a break-up in this case.
There is a big love between partners, but having an affair is just a time to relax and feel adventurous.
