The following blog post is about the question which is “Who cheats more, men or women?” Now if you shoot the same question to both the genders, each one definitely blames the other one.
So answering this question on the basis of personal opinion will not be justice. Keeping this thing in mind, we decided to perform in-depth research and figure out various facts which might help in answering thing questions.
Facts about who cheats more men or women
Here’s are some facts about who cheats more men or women? Let’s start with the first one:
- First research shows that 66.9% of husbands and 53.1% of wives have cheated more than once.
- Second research shows that 48% of men and 73.7% of women have their partners because of marital issues.
- Third research shows that 19.8% of men and 48.9% of women have cheated their partners because they are interested or like someone else.
- Fourth research shows that 30.5% of men and 40% of women have cheated their partners because they have a cybersex relationship.
- Fifth research shows that 25.9% of men and 34.6% of women were bored of their sexual life and due to this reason cheated their partners.
On the basis of these facts, we can say that women cheat more than men or easily move on to another relationship or initials breakup or divorced and ready to live alone once she is done. On the other hand, males have a tendency to drag on the relationship through thinks and thins.
Reason Why Men or Women cheat
People keep on falling in love and breaking up so statics may fluctuate now and then. So rather heading to conclude who cheats more let’s find out why people cheat in a relationship
Monotony in Relationship
Interest and excitement vanish soon the novelty is lost in the relationship. In most cases, this attraction may last from 6 months to two years. Once meetings, chats, and physical intimacy has become commonplace for both partners (due to overuse / extended exposure) lose interest in each other.
This may lead any partner to cheat on others when they get that excitement and newness with someone else.
Emotional Support Imabalnce
Constant emotional wearing-off affects the relationship adversely. This will not allow your relationship to grow and lead the other partner to lose interest in the relationship. Both partners have an intense desire to be nurtured and loved in a relationship. The imbalance in support exchange is unhealthy for relationships.
Excessing demand of care or constant emotional wearing may become a reason for cheating in a relationship.
Unfulfilled Desires in Love
An emotional, physical, or luxurious unmet desire may develop frustration and bitterness between the couple. Male-female have quite different notions of love and a few can really fulfill the all desires of their partner. Paying attention to each other’s unsaid desires or talking about your unmet desire can help.
The same unmet desire for luxury, attention, or intimacy, when fulfilled by an outsider, it calls for cheating in the relationship.
Financial Dependent Spouse
It may surprise you, that a financially dependent partner in a relationship tends to cheat on the person who works his ass off to earn more money. American Sociological Association study shows that 15% of financially dependent males and 5% of financially dependent females cheat on their partners.
The person who is earning a higher amount and supporting the family is likely to be cheated.
Sexual desire imbalance of couple
A partner who is never satisfied or one who never longs for sex acts is not healthy for a relationship. Man has higher libido and women’s sexual desire is more connected to the emotional bond. Leading a nonsexual affectional relationship increase stress and is the major cause of cheating too.
Sex desire difference may bring endanger to the relationship and lead to cheating in the relationship.
Self Low Esteem/ Identity crises
A person’s low self-esteem rises to negative traits like jealousy, insecurity, and these traits bring friction in the relationship. In many cases, a submissive partner tends to cheat just to full fill his/her self-pride. Contrary to it self-assertive people may cheat on when found a more compatible person.
Negligence from the partner and dissatisfaction in the relationship leads to cheating on each other.
Three Age Range for cheating
This data was fetched from a “married-dating website” Ashley Madison which indicated that there are higher possibilities of cheating in three age ranges. First comes the 19- 29 age group (expectation vs reality of relationship), then 30 to 39 (real-life crises vs dream marriage ), and 40 to 49 (overburdened with responsibilities).
When the expectation of a relationship doesn’t meet the reality of life couples tend to break up or cheat.
There could be a very low possibility to get reliable data on infidelity. Most of the researches sources show different data. Moreover, the procedure to collect these statistics is a general survey which is not a very reliable source of information.
Where old-aged men are considered as more likely to cheat in the relationship on the basis of data. A study from ASA (American Sociological Association) shows that 70% of divorces are initiated by women.
Men and women both are opportunists! Man makes a mistake or indulges in the affair and admits (at least in a survey ) but women take pride in maintaining their dignity and rather than admitting cheating on a partner they find it better to take the secret to the grave.
