Posted on

Find the top reasons why men cheat on their loyal wives and how to prevent it. This will bring light to the subject of infidelity in relationship by men.

“Faithfulness lives where love is stronger than instinct.” Paul Carvel said that when asked about faithfulness. If a person first instinct is to cheat then he is going to cheat no matter how much you try to stop him.

One of the common misconceptions about cheating men is that they do it because they need sex. Just to get to the bottom of this our team asked the cheaters and their wives some questions. The results were somewhat astonishing as you may see. The major reasons we got and I quote “the spark was gone” or “he didn’t get the attention he needed”. The reasons of any sexual desire were only true in 7% of the cases. Hence, we would like to get your attention on some of the reasons why men cheat and how you could avoid it.


Almost seventy percent of men said that they cheated because they felt invisible when it came to their wives. Sometimes when life is moving too fast we forget what is important to us and that’s when mistakes happen. Like in this case, I understand that it is not the wife’s job to acknowledge every little thing that his man does. I mean after all she is the one who is doing all the work around the house. But sometimes a little appreciation for his efforts is just what he needs from straying. Everyone of us like to be praised. But when you go through all this effort to help someone and they don’t even acknowledge it than that hurts.

Secondly, a man will only be willing to have an affair or a sexual fling with someone who made him feel more desirable something that his wife failed to do. We ask most men when asked “Why did they cheat with this particular woman?”. Their answer is somewhat like this “She made me feel special again” or some version of this. But the bottom line is men craves appreciation and acknowledgement. When they are given appreciation then there is no reason or room for an affair. So, just pay your man a compliment every once in a while. Make it a point to compliment him once a day at least and you won’t have to face this situation.


Insecurity is one of the reasons why men cheat on their wives. Insecurity can appear due any number of reasons. A person could feel insecure because his wife is more attractive than him or there can be an insecurity job wise or salary wise. Sometimes wife is more outgoing and social and potentially having a lot of guy friends which in time can make husband feel a bit more insecure. If you know your man then you know that he is not going to talk about this stuff. He would rather bury it deep down, but then if you notice carefully you will know something is wrong.

Generally, men don’t like to talk about their emotions and their insecurities. This doesn’t make them heartless or cold hearted just a bit distant at time. And if you don’t want any misunderstanding then you should try to bring it up but carefully and not in a sarcastic way. Also avoid public places and talk to him only in private. A war in which two countries hate each other are often resolved by some people sitting and talking. I believe that in marriage where two people love and honor each other can have a nice life if they could just communicate with each other.
