Are women unfaithful for the same reasons as men?
If you've ever been cheated on before, then you know what it feels like to have your heart broken in two. The initial feeling of finding out can bring an almost-paralyzing shock before turning into devastation and sadness.
Because we're only human, we sometimes take the blame for why our partners cheat.
But why? Oftentimes because it just seems to make more sense that way.
Constantly thinking about what happened and choosing to beat yourself up with questions you can't answer becomes agony.
When you overthink like this, it is easy to trick yourself into thinking that she could have just cheated for the sake of cheating, instead of having her own reason.
When your thought process gets this negative, you know it's time to find help.
Asking yourself questions like these doesn't do anything to heal the pain. All it does is reopen the wound and make it harder to move past the adultery.
Senior VP of Experts Melanie Gorman sits down with relationship experts John Gray, LiYana Silver, Debi Berndt and Tammy Nelson to talk about why women cheat, a question that's plagued the minds of many.
Because everyone's situation is so different, it can sometimes be hard to pin an exact reason for why so many people are having affairs.
Relationship problems can stem from many issues, many of which can lead to cheating partners.
That said, is there even a difference between men and women that drive each sex to become unfaithful?
For instance, some people believe that men cheat for physical reasons, like sex, while women cheat for emotional reasons, like communication issues. This sounds fairly cut-and-dry, but in reality, things are much more complicated than that.
While no one can say for sure what drives a woman's desire to commit adultery, the experts come pretty close to demystifying the question on many people's minds.
