There are many reasons why people cheat on their spouses or significant other. Here is an informative list of fifteen reasons why women cheat. It should be noted that the reasons women give for cheating on their spouses are much different than the reasons given by men for doing the same thing. These are not in any particular order.

1) Boredom

Women often seek attention from men other than their spouse or boyfriend because they are bored with the relationship. This can happen, especially after being with someone for a significant amount of time and things between them get old. The romance that once held them together dies. Couples who have been together for a long time can fall into routines otherwise known as ruts and can’t get out of them. The misconception is that finding someone new is going to add the excitement back into their lives that they once knew.

This excitement is what they no longer have but still have a desire for. Many women who find themselves growing bored of their spouses don’t always run right out and cheat; many try to find alternative ways to spice things up or rekindle the romance they once had with their husbands. They start working out more. They make romantic dinners for two. They try to get their spouse to go out more often or to new places. If these attempts fail, then cheating may follow.

    most are the same reasons men cheat but when we say one of those reasons we are the bad people and get scorned for it but when a girl cry after cheating everyone makes it out to be ok and make it out to be the guys fault for her cheating these double standards are why women go out and do all sorts of things behind guys backs because they know that the guy is going to be blamed for it either way

      That’s not true. “Everyone” doesn’t make it out to be okay. Most rational people know that cheating is detrimental to both your marriage and mental health. All it takes is one cheating partner to teach you to never do that to someone else. My husband fell into the “sadistic” category. My mistake was believing he loved me and I was the only one that was ever faithful to him and I could “help” him with his problems. (his words) I found out after the divorce that he was this way with all his relationships. Friends, brother, sister, parents, etc. I think people that cheat have complex psychological issues.

    Because they’re hohoho’s. Nothing more. Not to mention some of the STD’s they can bring back to a relation. However the same applies to men.

    Another big one – vanity … they want someone to think they are “still attractive”, and what better evidence than get a man’s sexual proof of attraction.

    One-sided bullshit. Interesting how each reason is remedied by counseling, counseling, and more counseling, with a focus on the woman. The reasons partners cheat, regardless of gender, is because they’re selfish. I take umbrage at the fact that the majority of articles written about men who cheat do not include counseling recommendations. Why is this? Because it’s assumed men know to seek help? Or because it’s a given that they are already in counseling? No. It’s because it’s that old “men will be men” crap. Ok enough ranting. All I’m saying is that truly instructive articles on infidelity should be equal opportunity. That’s all.

    Shouldn’t the title be: Why humans are not really monogamous by nature?

    Some women choose to be evil…and take pride in that choice.
