Although not as much as men are, but women too are occasionally unfaithful to their husbands or partners. Yes, the reasons why men cheat and why women cheat are very different, but the fact remains that women cheat on their partners too. Most often a woman is unfaithful because she is looking to feed her heart and not so much her body. Women tend to stray for emotional reasons whereas for men cheating is purely physical. So, as long as you can keep your woman happy and emotionally satisfied, it is very unlikely that she will be unfaithful to you. Here are 10 reasons women cheat on their men. 1.Pure and simple revenge: This is one of the leading reasons for women to cheat on their men. The revenge in question is usually because the man had an affair, and its payback time. Sometimes, even if women have a suspicion that their men are having an affair, it may push them into seeking comfort in another mans arms. 2.Not enough intimacy: If your relationship is lacking intimacy, a woman may feel tempted to have an affair so that she can feel close to someone. Simply giving a woman the fantastic home, a fabulous car, and money in the bank is not enough to keep her happy. If the intimacy quotient on your marriage is very low, that could drive a woman to cheat. 3.Not getting adequate sex: Yes, hard as this may sound to believe, women too like to have sex and may seek it outside their marriage if they are not getting enough of it from their partners. Although this holds truer for women in westernized societies than in a society like ours, The sex per se is not what a woman is looking for, but it has more to do with the feeling of being wanted. 4.Sowing her wild oats: Sowing their wild oats is not just the domain of men. Once again, although fewer in number than men, some women enjoy being a bad girl. They usually stray from their relationships after a major change in their life. For instance, if they have had a near-death experience, if they have always been fat and have lost considerable weight and are looking their best or if they are going through some mid-life crisis. 5.To feel desirable: If a woman has a low self image, she is generally looking for something that will make her feel desirable and make her feel validated as a woman. And since sex can be the ultimate self-esteem booster, women may have an affair to feel sexier and loved. This usually happens when she is not getting enough attention from her man. 6.Falling in love: Another main reason why women cheat is because they simply fall in love with someone else. Most Indian marriages are arranged marriages. Thus, if a woman finds her true soul mate after being married, she may enter into an extramarital affair with the man that she truly loves. And even if the first marriage was a love marriage, sometimes people just fall out of love with their partners and in love with someone else. This is not to say that being in love justifies cheating, but well... it happens. 7.Boredom: If the relationship is lacking excitement, a woman may look for excitement in other ways, such as by having an affair. Not just to get away from a boring life, but if the sex is also becoming boring (the same old sexual routine with the same old sexual partner), a woman may get adventurous and jump into bed with someone who excites her. 8.Absentee partner: Women also tend to have affairs if they are away from their husbands or partners for long periods of time. For instance, if the man is a shippie and is away from home for months on end; or if he has to travel extensively for work, then the woman may seek another sexual partner. 9.Abusive partner: If her husband is abusive, either physically or verbally, this may lead the woman to be unfaithful to him. It would be easy to say that a woman need not stay with an abusive partner, but as statistics show, a lot of women stay in abusive relationships for different reasons. In her mind, the woman does not feel that she can leave her abusive partner, but having an affair is another story altogether. 10.Finding romance: It is no secret that woman love being romanced. Buying her flowers for no reason at all, sweeping her to an exotic locale for a romantic weekend, holding her and kissing her when she least expects it, and treating her like a 'special' person; that is what women are looking for. No, men don't have to be romantic every minute of every day, but if you haven't done anything romantic in God knows how long, well...your woman may just end up seeking romance elsewhere!
