Why do we cheat?
Relationships are not based on logic but are influenced by our emotions.
As a result, cheating is difficult to define because people differ in the type of contact they feel it is appropriate for a partner to have with someone else.
We all know that In any given relationship, what one person considers to be acceptable may differ from what the other thinks appropriate; and here the problems arise because people do not see eye-to-eye on this issue. We don’t set the rules for our relationship. And what makes matters worse, is that many people do not like to define what counts as cheating. They prefer not to define what counts as cheating because by keeping the rules vague and ambiguous, it makes it easier to cheat.
If you don’t know what the rules are, you really can’t break them. Right !!!
Think of it; it’s a lot easier to deceive both oneself and a partner about cheating when the rules are not clear.
You see we usually wonder why men cheat, the matter of fact is that women are now just as likely to cheat as men are.
Yes, infidelity was once considered men’s domain, but it’s now about equally likely among men and women.
In the end, people do not do anything without a reason for doing it, and in today’s time, we need to understand emotional affairs are becoming increasingly common. Our task is harder to find out if our partner is cheating, we need to become our own psychologists and ask the right questions and what’s important is never to feel sorry or blame ourselves if they did because the problem is not in us. As I mentioned every affair is unique some can be discussed and maybe fixed however other cases are just hopeless.
We need to decide what’s worth and what’s not and what we as a couple should be responsible for.
Relationships are not easy, yet to be with someone we need to learn how to grow together and rise above our wounds, and take responsibility as adults for what we need, and how to react to it.
