A relationship sought a massive amount of effort by both partners for the sustaining and sustenance in the long term. A miscalculation of input invested or a mere misunderstanding of any action in certain circumstances could be enough to derail a relationship.
A major speed bump in understanding the reasons behind when and how people cheat in relationships is infidelity.
Though upsetting but it is a haunting reality that betrayal always lingers on and stays close enough for when there is a chance of getting unfaithful by any one of the partners.
No logic seems to justify when your partner cheats on you, every sense becomes meaningless to figure out why things just got to this point.
Biologically, human beings can be guilty of being unfaithful given the psychological or philosophical factors be considered. The following can be one of the reasons people cheat in relationship:
1. Emotional void stretching in between partners.
Emotional distance can manifest in a relationship and can be difficult to shorten having consequences of lack of intimacy and closeness.
2. Personal development in an environment where cheating is seen normal.
Environment leaves a significant impact on the conduct of a person and when that person brought up and exposed to a lot of infidelity and unfaithfulness, cheating is seen normal.
3. Boredom prevails consistently in the relationship.
A relationship without a little spice and drama may get boring for partners who are looking for a lot of engaging events on a regular basis. When the routine does not seem to change then they look out for other initiatives to bring into their life hence, unfaithfulness.
4. Mid or quarter-life crisis.
Not being able to cope with their mid or quarter-life crisis in a healthy manner may incite people to cheat on their partners and shake things up a little bit.
5. You are forced to sabotage your own relationship.
Inadvertently, you are being cornered and gotten into circumstances where you break up with your partner and are taken all the blame of the broken relationship. When in actual, your partner is trying to sabotage the relationship and outright make you guilty of breaking up with them.
6. Physical intimacy is little or missing.
When physical needs are unmet then partners might resort to seeking that satisfaction elsewhere. In the long run, when partners feel deprived of physical intimacy then they can’t seem to resist getting from another option.
7. Unresolved low confidence and self-esteem.
Due to lack of confidence and low self-esteem in a relationship partners find ways to boost their egos and feeling of wanted and pursued.
Past skeletons are not always convenient to shed from behind your backs. The person you are living with might not have forgotten the last time you cheated on them. It might not be easy to forgive even though when they say that they have moved on. They would want you to feel the pain and agony that they have endured hence, their vengeance.
