Most people think divorce is caused by cheating, but the truth is usually far blurrier than that.
Cheating, stepping out on your marriage, is almost always a symptom of something wrong with the relationship itself. Though often cited as the reason for divorce, it usually isn't. A recent poll revealed that 77 percent of men who were divorced after infidelity said they had no regrets and 81 percent preferred their new sex lives.
It isn't rocket science. For many who are married, sex dies. It's a cliche for a reason. Between children and laundry and dirty dishes and cluttered bedrooms, sex takes a back seat. And in many cases, we ladies are to blame.
This isn't to say there are not cads who are selfish animals who will cheat no matter what (Tiger Woods, I'm looking at you), but those guys are not always so hard to spot. You just have to know what to look for. If he seems too smooth or if he cheated on his spouse to be with you, you should have your caution up.
Of course even a nice man can stray and, in those cases, the fault isn't just with him alone. And ladies, this doesn't just apply to you! You could also be the one doing the cheating if your man does any of the following:
It's the homewrecking formula -- find out what is missing and be that. If you work to make sure there is little to nothing missing and you discuss whatever is missing, you can practically cheat proof your marriage.
None of these things is the path of destruction by itself, but all of them put together can cause a person to stray and look elsewhere. Everyone talks about how cheating is the cardinal sin, but I say that sin is actually forgetting to communicate.
Do you think cheating is a symptom?
