Why Men Cheat Part VI

So far we have discussed five other reasons why men cheat. Your mate suffers from some character flaws much like all of us but not everyone will choose to cheat on a partner as a form of escapism.

5 Reasons Why Men Cheat

Lack of Integrity

Low Self-Esteem

Emotional Immaturity

Lack of Self-Awareness


These men suffer in more than one area and the effects of their dis-ease (cheating, drinking, gambling, etc...) are just symptoms of the root causes.

The next reason we will explore to better understand cheating, is something most people struggle with on one occasion or another. And that something is LAZINESS.

Humans, you would think, have a natural disposition to be slow, rather than fast. And when it relates to a failing relationship, it's easier to take the less painful, less involved, and less mature way of "fixing" a problem.

The lazy man's way out is through escapism, via an affair, work, neglect, or some other less important focus. Relationships demand hard work if they are to survive the bumps and bruises of daily living.

Open and honest communication, trust, love, respect, and monogomy are necessary ingredients that make a relationship successful.

There are times when partners need a timeout or space to settle down when things get heated. And then there is a time to talk about the problems you are experiencing in your relationship, and usually that time is sooner rather than later.

You can be sure that the reasons adding up to why men cheat, start with a lack of communication and superficial communication.

The bad news is that cheating starts way before cheating actually begins. One way to slow the process of wanting to "creep" is to speed the process of tackling the small problems before they become big problems.

Your relationship to your spouse, your children, and family is an interactive experience, and not a lifestyle that is simply viewed upon by a passive looker-on.
