Cheating on a loved one is always unpleasant, and in some cases, it is simply disastrous for family relationships. The most offensive thing is when the husband, the head of the family, with whom he has lived together for many years, is cheating. What makes a man cheat in a long-term relationship?
You have to understand that cheating can be different. You should not equate a casual adventure at a corporate event or in a sauna and the appearance of a constant mistress who claims an ever greater place in the heart and mind of a man. In the first case, cheating can happen completely by accident, for example, under the influence of alcohol or simply from the desire to "try something new." In the second case, the situation is much more complicated.
It is not a certain "polygamy" that makes a man start a relationship with his mistress, but the presence of certain problems in the family. First of all, these are psychological problems. Over time, the feelings between the spouses become dulled, the wife begins to be perceived by the man more as an abstract relative, less and less attractive to him sexually. If at the same time there are constant conflicts in the family, or the spouses are generally indifferent to each other, then the ground for treason is practically prepared, and the appearance of a mistress is just a "matter of technology."
In a relationship with his mistress, a man may look for what he lacks at home, with his wife. And this is not only and not so much sex or a young body, but mutual understanding, sympathy. It may seem surprising to us, but many husbands do not cheat with young beauties. Quite often, women of the same age, or even a little older, become mistresses. They are the ones who are most able to understand a man who is tired of the monotonous family life. In addition, for many men, a sense of novelty is very important, those same joyful feelings of falling in love that were characteristic of the early stages of communication with their future wife. With his mistress, a man seeks to relive these sensations anew, saturating himself with positive emotions.
A distinctive feature of male infidelities from women is that most men still remain in families (of course, if the wives did not know about the infidelities or turned a blind eye to them), relationships with their mistresses are nothing more than an adventure for them. And if your man "pulls to the left", then before starting a conflict, it is better to think about what could be the reasons for his dissatisfaction with his daily family life.
