If Men Can Cheat, So Can Women…

There is a common misconception that it’s only men who step out on their partners. Men are trash, men are dogs and that women are faithful is what we have always heard.
My question is, who are all these men cheating with exactly? Do heterosexual men only cheat with single women and each other? Women cheat too and its almost becoming a normal trend.
The notion of the cheating wife is something that tends to be swept under the rug  mostly because it goes against everything that we as a culture have been conditioned to think about women.
Back then women were not as clumsy with cheating as they are now.
Women are tired and it has gotten to a point where they say ‘if he can do it, so can I’. The gender gap in adultery is closing, and it’s not just about opportunity and possibility, women now are more inclined to demand to have all their needs met.
Research suggests that 10 to 20 percent of men and women in marriages or other committed (monogamous) relationships will actively engage in sexual activity outside of their primary relationship. And these numbers are likely under-reported, possibly by a wide margin, thanks to denial and confusion about what constitutes infidelity in the digital era.
Women now are more inclined to demand to have all their needs met.” Fewer women are marrying out of need, Fisher says; instead, they’re marrying to please themselves. But that also means when they’re dissatisfied with something, they can feel justified to go elsewhere.
I asked a fellow male blogger Leo Nation his opinion on the subject and he said It beats me. Women, in general, work with affective psychology. So most if not all they do involves emotions. So to see a woman actually two timing, there’s a drive factor. Possibly, they are under pressure to be married from Family or Church people or they are just out rightly victims of prevailing poverty such that multiple relationships will be meal tickets. And last but not least, the influence of media. IG, Twitter among other platforms have since become virtual brothels… Where people randomly hook up and this whole “influencer” tag is becoming a detriment to genuine love. People now hook up for fun and to create a big fan base…
Funny thing is some men don’t up and leave anymore like they used to. Some don’t even talk about it, who wants the world to know their woman cheated.
However, women are openly cheating  and below maybe some of the reasons:

  • They feel underappreciated, neglected, or ignore.
  • They crave intimacy – women tend to feel valued and connected to a significant other more through non-sexual.
  • They are lonely. 
  • They expect too much from a primary relationship.
  • They’re not having enough satisfying sex at home.
  • A lot of the women said that when they talked openly about their fantasies or desires to their husbands, they were met with disgust and made to feel ashamed.

I’m sure there are more reasons to why women cheat, share your thoughts in the comment box.
