No matter what the reason is or how many justifications you put forward, cheating in a relationship is bad. It’s one of the cardinal sins in life that you do not cheat on your partner, spouse or other half. If you don’t like the person or have troubles with them, you either sort it out or just leave. What people don’t realize, is that women are known to have cheated on their partners just as much as men have. While the causes for men are usually simple, figuring out women can be difficult. Listed below are 6 reasons why a woman might cheat.
1. Trust issue
Women will always wholeheartedly trust you. They won’t question anything and blindly believe everything you say. However, if you happen to break their trust once, then they become sceptical of everything. They no longer will trust you and they develop this insecurity issues. As a result, they will try to take revenge on the husband or partner by doing the same thing they did to her; cheat. Since her trust is broken, she will feel the need to hurt her man by cheating with somebody else.
Everyone needs a bit of excitement in their lives. Nobody likes the same old routine of going to work, taking care of the family and then repeating it again every day. Some people seek the excitement a bit more than others. This kind of women won’t leave their husbands because either, their husbands are taking well care of them financially and have a stable home. Or they have a family she doesn’t want to break apart. However, they will seek these thrills in other ways like going to clubs, flirting openly with men and occasionally get all physical with them.
3. Physical Satisfaction
Well, men are not the only ones who have a physical demand. Women also require similar things. A lot of times, men become too lazy to be physical the way the used to early on in their relationship or marriage. Either they remain tired from a long day at the office or they just don’t have the same desire anymore. They just have intercourse and then fall asleep. Women want that foreplay, the teasing and the lust to become fully satisfied. If her desires are not met then it is likely she will look for alternatives outside her marriage
This is somewhat similar to the previous point but with slight variations. As much as people say that men have larger egos, it’s the women who long for appreciation. It’s like an ego boost for them. They want to hear how good they look, what a great dish they cooked and how amazing life is with them in it. In most marriages, the spouse takes each other for granted and thus all the appreciations and flirting stops. So when she meets somebody who appreciates her, she feels loved again and gets tempted to cheat.
5. Feel Wanted
Most women crave the feel to be wanted. They need constant attention and pampering to make themselves feel better. When they are with their husbands, life becomes monotonous and whatever the husband used to do to make her feel special might have dried down. As a result, we will often see women complaining about their hubbies forgetting their birthdays and anniversaries and how they don’t surprise them anymore. So if somebody else makes the woman feel special and makes her feel wanted, she will 9 times out 10 go on to cheat on her partner.
6. Emotional Connection
At least 90% of the men’s reason for cheating has to be physical reasons. They couldn’t keep it in their pants. However, in most women’s cases, cheating is done due to a lack of emotional connection. More often or not, women feel that they have lost the emotional spark they had with their partners. Maybe their lives have become all about being the perfect wife and mother and she misses the little things that a man used to do for her. So when a woman feels this way, and she meets somebody who connects with her on the emotional level, she will end up cheating.
