When it comes to relationships, people usually know the basics of what make them successful–work, dedication, determination, motivation, stimulation, etc. All of those factors are important when it comes to making any relationship work, whether it’s a relationship with a friend or the love of your life. When it comes to infidelity, however, many people typically point fingers at men for being the guilty instigators of affairs. Before you engage in such behavior, sit back and take a look at what makes women decide to have an affair.
It has long been said that men cheat strictly for sexual reasons, and that women tend to have an affair for more emotional reasons. While that is mostly true, there are a number of factors that drive even the sweetest woman to cheat on her husband. Some of those factors include her partner’s lack of motivation, questionable hygiene habits, not being successful enough, no sense of humor, poor manners, and the lack or even absence of sex. However, the number one reason why women cheat is actually two things: boredom and loneliness.
In order to keep a woman’s mind far, far away from the subject of straying, it’s important to make sure that all of her needs are being met, and not just those of a financial or sexual nature. While it’s easier for a man to engage in and walk away from a purely sexual affair, and often within a short period of time, it’s a bit more risky when a woman is the one engaging in an affair. The main reason for that is because women do tend to put more emphasis on the emotional aspect of an affair–the forbidden object of her desire is usually more attentive and humorous than her boring husband. When a man makes a woman feel that he is interested in her as a person and not just as a means of sexual gratification, it creates a potent fire that can destroy even the best-laid plans of that happily ever after.
In order to prevent an affair from destroying your relationship, you need to take a long, hard look at what truly interests your wife. Show enthusiasm and support for her hobbies. Develop friendships with her friends, and make plans that are enjoyable for all involved. Take her out on fun and/or unusual dates. Don’t turn a deaf ear when your wife comes to you for advice. It’s important to show your wife that you truly care about her and her interests. Doing so will keep the flame of love burning bright for a long, long time and ensure that happily ever after is within your reach.
