There are a lot of people who are willing to continue investing in relationships through fraud. There are no good women in the real world, at least not in this world.
But adultery is no longer a man’s domain, it is just as likely today between a man and a woman. Today, it is no longer possible to claim that only men cheat, because they can’t keep it hidden. It is now the norm.
According to a 2011 study published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, more men (52.5%) than women (46.7%) admitted to cheating. The three main reasons for fraud, which both men and women support, are the same: a lack of trust, lacklustre relationships, and a sense of entitlement.
I interviewed women who had extramarital affairs about their feelings of entitlement to gather information. In my experience, many women cheat because they have just changed, given up, or left their partner. If they had discussed their options with a man beforehand, which they did not do before marriage, they would have felt more comfortable fulfilling their sexual desires with another partner who was not their husband.
Experts say there is no one size fits all solution, but they have found more reasons to be cautious. It is common for women to feel lonely and betrayed because their husbands ignore them, or they suffer because it has a devastating effect on their primary relationships. A lot of men cheated because their husbands ignored them and treated them like dogs.
This leads to common strategies to appease the partner and deceive him into feeling safe while at the same time looking for a new one.
A new partner can be a source of pleasure, but it can also boost your self-esteem. Many couples report that having an affair strengthens their relationship. At first, the fraudster doesn’t think about the long-term effects and then feels guilty and promises to never do it again. It may not be necessary to commit fraud, and with it comes low self-esteem.
Yet, each individual must know and listen to their inner leader, and not everyone is willing to give up their white vest for someone who has hurt them. Lying and cheating every time you look at your partner is an act of self-mutilation.
While some people may never regain the trust and emotional security they need to save their relationship, many others see it as a chance to become stronger than ever.
Respect your partner’s choice and do your best to save your relationship. If that is not possible, at least move on with dignity and try not to hurt yourself. Try to remember why you started the relationship in the first place, start over, and appreciate your partner once again. Try to overcome your relationship crisis with counselling if you can, and don’t give up on them. A couple may benefit from a combination of counselling, support groups, and other forms of support to help them overcome their relationship crisis.
You should never forget to appreciate your partner’s efforts in the relationship, because everyone craves attention and respect. Whatever the situation, having a loyal partner by your side is priceless and worth every penny.
If you succeed and someone comes after you, it is because of you. Your relationship should be based on trust, love, and respect.
