If you are in a situation where your partner/husband is cheating on you then you are probably asking yourself “Why do men cheat?”. Well there are several factors that come into play when a man is faced with the decision of whether to cheat or be faithful.
Why do men cheat– because they are not getting enough sex?
Well in some cases this is definitely the reason, but for the most part, men cheat because they have the feeling they are in some way not getting the emotional support for their partner that they deserve.
