We’ve all wondered why men, especially those with great wives – beautiful, intelligent, hasn’t-let-herself-go, Godly, etc. – still cheat, right? Well, I think I know why and I’ll get to that in a second.
Recently, I was wondering what a woman can do to keep her man interested in her because I was thinking that surely men that cheat (emotionally not sexually) don’t find their wives interesting anymore. So in order to get an intellectual boost, they flirt and get involved with other women emotionally.
Then today, I had a thought. It occurred to me that when a guy cheats (emotionally but especially sexually) even though he has an amazing wife, the issue can’t possibly be his wife (in most cases). And then I got it! Men cheat because of an inferiority complex. I had always thought along these lines but now I really get it. They want to be sure that they still got it going on. Most times, it has absolutely nothing to do with their wife. It’s a low self-esteem thing. So they put feelers out there to see which girl will latch on. It’s an ego stroke. For too long the wife has been blamed but I think it’s the guy that has the issues. It’s from within. Like I said, even when they have an amazing wife, some guys still cheat.
So, that’s my take on it. When the guy wants to feel good about himself, he goes hunting and when he “catches” a girl, it makes him feel good and desirable. Let’s not forget that he’s got a wife at home who desires the heck out of him o! Perhaps women need to affirm their men more but I think men need to feel good about themselves from the inside.
Part of the blame goes to the ladies who give in to the ego-stroking activity that is cheating perhaps because of the incentives the guys use to attract these women – money,etc. – but that’s another story though.
So, that’s why I think men cheat…
What say ye?
