Almost every married person has faced marriage problems one time or the other. It would not be an exaggeration to say that there is no marriage without marriage problems even if the partners truly love each other. The reasons of marriage problems could be any and many.
In love with someone before marriage
It is as simple as that. Perhaps the woman was already in love with someone before marriage and could not marry him for whatever reasons or circumstances. After marriage the lady failed to form a compatible relationship with her husband. If looked deeper, the reasons could be that the husband did not give enough care, love and attention to his wife which made her long for pre-marriage relationship. Hence this led to infidelity.
Also it is quite possible that despite having a good husband and family of in-laws the now married woman could not forget her first love.
Another thing, Desire for emotional support and intimacy, Right or wrong, women having an extra marital affair say that they do it for the emotional connection. They want to bond with someone who is listening, caring and supportive at the emotional level.
All humans have desires and needs and married women having physical needs are no exception. Secondly a woman for one or the other reason may not be completely happy with her partner. So if a woman happens to meet a man who has one or more of the qualities of being smart, great conversationalist, rich, successful then the probability is high that the woman will be lusting for him. The bonding will happen fast if the man too has a roving eye and knows how to pay the lady right compliments and strike the right cord.
Women are more likely to have an affair because of loneliness. A woman’s motivation for infidelity is more than s*xual. Although some women have affairs just for the s/ex, in general, women’s motivation isn’t just about se/x.
Some likely reasons for women’s infidelity include revenge, boredom, s*x addiction, periods of vulnerability, frustration, life changes, being under appreciated or belittled by their spouses, you are her first and now she wants to explore.
Most men are busy chasing after money daily and in the midst of all the running around, the attention and affection for their women has reduced drastically.
She feels lonely. He’s gone all day, weeks or even months, just a few calls or text messages, and when he calls it’s just to ask after the kids or dish one or two instructions.
There is no emotional connection whatsoever, she feels undesired, unheard or just unhappy. So, she starts looking for excitement outside, because she no longer feels close to him, and she feels she’s being taken for granted. She becomes an easy prey for men who would look into her eyes and make her feel special again.
It is also fair to note that some women almost have it all, love their husbands and want their marriages intact, but the qualifier for their infidelity is that it makes them become a different person entirely, they feel lighter and happier.
Many married women cheats because of this “I was bored and unhappy.”
Cheating is one of the major causes of relationship break-ups.
