Why Do Men Cheat?

Adultery has been and still is one of the biggest sins a person can commit when it comes to love. According to “Statistic Brain”, 57 percent of questioned men admitted that they’ve committed infidelity in all relationships they’ve had. That is a pretty big number! But, why do men cheat? This particular question baffled the minds of women throughout history and they never managed to get a straight answer. Some men cheat because they’re not used to monogamous relationships, other dudes just want to try out some weird fetishes, but most of them cheat simply because they can’t resist the temptation. The majority of women will say that cheating is a sign of weakness, but that’s not always the case. Here are some of the most common reasons why men commit adultery.

They Feel Neglected

This is usually how women feel in relationships, but men can also be rather dissatisfied with the amount of attention they’re getting from their partner. Unfortunately, most men don’t have enough patience and will to discuss feelings, so they immediately start cheating. When their ego is hurt, they feel the need to boost it in order to feel wanted again. In this particular case, cheating is just a defense mechanism. It may seem justified and understandable in certain situations, but it’s still extremely wrong.

They Are Insecure

Not all men cheat on their spouses because they’re insensitive and heartless. As a matter of fact, many unfaithful husbands and boyfriends out there are hypersensitive and insecure. A lot of guys are not satisfied with their lives, so they tend to seek approval in various places. Most disloyal men are simply insecure lads who are seeking validation from other women in order to feel good about themselves. Their confidence is shattered and they are desperate to feel wanted and desired once again. Insecurity is, without a doubt, one of the biggest reasons why modern men cheat on their wives and girlfriends.


We live in a very interesting and fast-paced world that we share with more than 7.5 billion people. Therefore, it’s safe to say that, nowadays, monogamous relationships can sometimes be rather boring. Even the strongest and healthiest couples can fall into boring routines from which they can’t crawl out. At first, boredom may seem silly and harmless, but over time, it can prove to be fatal for the relationship. This is exactly why most men tend to seek adventure and excitement outside of their unions.

Lack Of Courage To Break Up

Unfortunately, most guys don’t have the courage to break things up when they start feeling trapped. They’re not brave enough to “pull the trigger” and terminate the failing relationship. Instead of doing the right thing, they tend to engage in extramarital sex in order to push their partner away from them. However logical this may be, it’s also extremely cowardly and wrong. Guys consider adultery to be a way out, but it’s actually a very cruel and cold way to end a long-term relationship.
