3 main reasons why married men cheat on their wives

By on

cheating-manResearch has it that the rate of men who cheat on their wives is much higher than the rate of women that cheat on their husbands.

It doesn’t rule out the fact that women cheat also.

According to marriage counsellors, 1 in 3 men are more likely to cheat on their wives, and as unbelievable as it seems,it has nothing to do with sex but a need by the men to feel loved and wanted.

Compiled by Black Love Forum, here are 3 concrete reasons men cheat on their wives:

1. They Feel Unappreciated: Men love to know that they are king of their castle, the greatest lion in the jungle. They wrestle inside themselves for recognition and appreciation. They rarely do anything for free. They always want a smile, a wink, a hug, a sexual gesture, or a “Wow, you are incredible moment”, because it shows that they are appreciated. They don’t depend on their money or their status to give them this feeling, but rather, they depend on the women they fall in love with. You see, men can go out and make money “with a mask on”, but they can’t eat, sleep and live at home with that same mask for too long. At some point they are going to let their wife into the struggles they face and the better she is at navigating conversation that gets to that place, the better off their relationship will be. When a woman feels that a man doesn’t need to be appreciated or that she should not have to do that for him, she will become like a nagging fly to him and he would rather live on the rooftop or in a desert than to live with a woman that doesn’t know how to appreciate him. When men don’t feel appreciated it makes them feel insecure and when they feel insecure, they start to get confused about who’s on their side and what their purpose and responsibilities are to the people on their team.

2. They Feel Emotionally Disconnected: Most women think men are not very emotional because they don’t express their emotions the way women do. Men are very emotional and have a very difficult time managing their emotions. They are what I call “emotional extremist” because when they are emotionally expressive it’s often at the extreme end of the expression itself. So men want to connect at deep emotional levels that most women probably can’t handle. Some men actually have said that their wives could not handle their emotions, so they don’t even go there, but they need it so bad. Most of their extramarital affairs did not start with sex or attraction, but rather with deep emotional connections and emotional fulfillment. Men live for that. They need someone to reach them there and help them make sense of manhood. Again, they depend on their wives to do this.

3. They Choose To Cheat: Finally, it boils down to choice. Men that cheat, make the decision to do so, which is not always an easy decision. The more they love their wives and value their reputation and their faith, the more difficult it is to cheat. But the desperate needs of manhood are so vitally powerful that 1 in every 3 men makes the choice to cheat.
