Cheating is a forbidden act when it comes to the holy books that is to say the Bible and others.[4] But this itself can’t cease some people to cheat on their partners.

Concrete reasons can’t be imagined as to why partners cheat on each other. And for sure one to cheat on the other, you can’t really tell what’s that master mind behind the act.[2]

Cheating. [5]This is no new word among couples but rather it has become a lyric that is sang among the people that are within a relationship because this lawful act of cheating come up way long ago during the ancient times.[8]

After a good research among the people that have practiced cheating, Below are their reason as why couples cheat on each other

“For the first time, women were hitting on me” “I cheated on my girlfriend because I could.[12] I never had a lot of sexual options through high school and college,[7] but after school, I really hit my stride. For the first time, women were hitting on me, and I was drunk on the feeling. One night, I let it go too far and slept with a woman at a party.[3] I didn’t tell my girlfriend it happened but broke up with her on a trumped-up fight instead.” —D.H., 28

“I was seeking something that I was not getting in my marriage” “Both times, I was seeking something that I was not getting in my marriage, sex, love, and affection.[2] The absolute truth is that I could have likely had all the things I was seeking in my affair with my wife. [4]It was a lack of effort and too much old programming that led to me to believe otherwise.” —Don, 29

“The opportunity to something different in bed”[9] “The two main reasons were the excitement I got from the chase leading up to the cheat and the opportunity to do something in bed that my girlfriend objected to.” —John, 34

“What we wanted out of our sex life was very different” “We had some issues in our relationship that had been slowly pushing us apart. [10]She was steadily becoming more religious, and what we wanted out of our sex life was very different and we were operating on a long-distance relationship.” —Adam, 25.[6]

Why women have cheated

“I needed a way to end it” “I fell out of love and was too scared to tell him and too embarrassed to admit to myself that the relationship was done.[8] I needed a way to end it by making him end it for me. Cowardice, really.” —Gloria, 34.[3]

“We were emotionally incompatible” “I felt all men cheated and so I should just strike first.[5] That was a huge mistake. I was young and didn’t know how to process the feelings of isolation in my relationship.[12] Rather than confront the fact that this person and I were emotionally incompatible, I cheated.” —Mary, 31.

“To get my needs met” “I felt dissatisfied with the romance/sex in the relationship,[4] even if it was a stable and loving one. There ended up being a lot of tension, [10]as he expected me to do all the work to make our relationship ‘spark’ again, and didn’t lift a finger, didn’t communicate with me, and didn’t really react when I did try. Eventually, [1]I got tired of bothering and slept with someone else to get my needs met.” —Kay, 32

“I didn’t feel like myself” “I felt like I was stuck in a relationship I didn’t want to be in.[9] I didn’t feel like myself in it, so I emotionally cheated on my ex with a few other men.” —Jasmine, 20.[6]

“He couldn’t remember my birthday” “I was in a long-distance relationship with a man for five years,[13] and I’d only see him twice a year. I asked him multiple times what our end game was for the relationship, but he kept saying, ‘let’s see where this goes.’ He even gave me a promise ring,[7] he said it was a promise that one day we would be together.[7] We were drifting apart, but we were both too lazy to break it off. Finally, I cheated on him, not once,[5] but twice, both one night stands. The second time was on my birthday,[8] after five years of being in a ‘relationship’ with this man, he still couldn’t remember the exact day of my birthday.[4] When midnight had passed and I didn’t receive an email, phone call, or message,[3] I went to a club with some friends, and that’s when I went home with a guy. I would say it was the straw that broke the camel’s back, but if I was honest with myself, it was broken long before that.” —Mari, 35.[16]

“I didn’t know I could talk to my partner” “I cheated because I didn’t know I could talk to my partner about what else I needed in the relationship,[7] kinkier sex, or more attention, or just more understanding about when I needed more space.” —Kim, 35

“We stopped being physically intimate” “I lived with my boyfriend, and because he was moving across the country to go to law school and I wasn’t going to go with him or do long distance,[4] he thought we should slowly stop being physically intimate with each other. [9]Then, I met someone who wanted to have sex with me and we had a two month-long affair and it was hot.[8] My boyfriend and I ended up getting back together a few months after he went away to law school.” —Cathy, 35.[1]
