Blame it on opportunity: Famous men, like most mean, cheat because of OPPORTUNITY. Men like Tiger Woods who have everything to lose and nothing to gain from sneaking around, may simply have more opportunity than the average guy. And its not necessarily that there's something missing in his marriage, either. It's not about how beautiful his wife is, or what's happening in their relationship. No matter who Tiger was married to, it is likely he would have taken advantage of the opportunities he had to sleep with other women.
There are studies that show that 55 to 65 percent of people who have affairs say that they are actually happy in their marriages and sexually satisfied even though they are committing adultery with someone else. Affairs do not necessarily indicate difficulty in the marriage or dissatisfaction with their primary partner.
Blame it on the adrenaline rush: Tiger Woods has high visibility, really big sponsors, a beautiful wife and two small children. He has a lot to lose. It is this danger that makes the infidelity that much more exciting. Some men do develop addictions to the high of cheating; the sneaking around, the rush of the sex itself, the hiding, and the double life. Sometimes its the relationships and the affection, the love they get that becomes the addiction.
Blame it on entitlement: Some celebrities may even feel entitled to infidelity. They can develop entitlement complexes out of a sense of "I deserve this." They take what they want, compartmentalizing their needs, and they sincerely do not think it will affect the people around them.
