Women need at least a little intimacy, even if she is already the “wife”
Hermes bag? Check. A property in Scarsdale, New York? Check. Aston Martin? She drives it. She may have everything she wants money can buy but a woman’s relationship with her husband may lack one thing that she desires the most: Intimacy. It is not just sexual intercourse that makes a woman feel loved and connected to her husband, it is the little things like kissing, touching, cuddling, laughing, and merely being a friend to her. Some husbands just see their wife as the one who prepares everything for them and takes care of their kids and the house, but fails to spend quality time together with their wife which makes them feel neglected, thus may find intimacy in another man’s arms.
A taste of their own medicine
Women may cheat simply because their husbands cheated on them too. Some wives may reckon that getting back at their husband is her chance to even the playing field – A perverted way of empathy.
Backdoor to freedom
Some married women use cheating as their exit strategy from an alcoholic, jobless, hot-tempered, suspicious, mama’s boy husband. Having an affair with another man is easier to deal with than repairing a broken relationship of which her husband himself can only fix. She can’t easily control her husband’s vices. She can’t apply a job for her husband. She can’t control her spouse’s temper. She can’t substitute the love her husband has for his mother. Using another man to displace out of a bad marriage is one of the usual and plain reasons wives have affairs. All of these are out of her hands and the only way to fix these is through communication.
Blame storming is the breakfast, lunch, dinner, midnight snacks
Marriage is built on trust, love, and respect. If a marriage lacks one of them, it can result in relentless arguments up to the point of much ado about nothing. Sometimes big fights come from petty things and knowing women, they see to it that their point is well made but never-ceasing debates will eventually place wives at their wits’ end. Resorting to someone who they can be at peace and great comfort is their sole solution. Who would want to be wholly consumed by grief, anyway?
The routine bed scene
Sexual intercourse can become a humdrum if you allow it. Wives can be world-weary of the same position, same fixing, and worst, the same person. Keeping a woman’s carnal adrenaline rushing is the key to keep her from straying away from her spouse. Men probably mention sexual incentives for infidelity and are less likely to fall head over heels with a mistress. Women, on the other hand, have a tendency to acquire a sentimental association with their lover and perhaps can have an extramarital romance because of loneliness and boredom.
A woman cheating on their husband is a cry for help in her marriage. It also unquestionably entails that something is lacking or diminished in their relationship with her husband. However, their act does not necessarily mean that it’s not fixable; it’s just an outlet of their desperation as well as frustration, and eventually some of them will realize they’ve gone down the wrong path.
In a game, the one who cheats is only the temporary winner. In the end, you get the temporary trophy but not the permanent triumph you can be proud of.
