2. Relationship trouble

When a man is in a marriage or relationship that involves excessive fighting, controversial opinions, poor sexual connection, and other issues, he is likely going to cheat with another woman. Oftentimes, this is done to get back at the wife or girlfriend or to look for someone new.

3. Opportunity

Some men in healthy and loving relationships cheat when presented with an opportunity. As an example, if a man were out of town on business for weeks, missing his partner, and one night he stops by the bar for a drink only to be approached, flirted with, and propositioned by a gorgeous woman, he now has an opportunity.

4. Boredom

A common reason men cheat is from being bored in the bedroom. This is why girlfriends and wives need to understand the importance of keeping things spicy by trying new positions, using toys, and not being afraid to experiment.

Interestingly, some men cheat because they have a serious issue of commitment, intimacy and sex. Because of this, they justify sleeping with someone else as being okay.

7. Demanding women

Men also cheat when they are in a relationship or marriage with a controlling and demanding woman. These men often feel they have no outlet or power, so an affair or one-night stand is merely to escape the situation at home, even if temporarily.

8. The daredevil

9. Feeling important and wanted

Numerous studies have been done on high-profile men, such as politicians, celebrities, royalty, and wealthy people that show that these type of men cheat more than ordinary men. The reason is that the number of women attracted to them is much greater so they are presented with a bigger number of temptations.

10. Just a physical act

Finally, men cheat because they view an affair or one-night stand as nothing more than a physical act of sex without emotional ties. These men love their partners but when it comes to the woman they cheat with, they are nothing more than a romp under the sheets.

1. A Challenge (by ptrshn)

Men (and women) cheat because they want to be challenged. Remember the days you were single? It was a challenge to court the other sex (or partner). Just because a man is married or is committed does not take away his challenge instincts. The key of course id to know you ARE in a committed relationship, so the urge to go after the opposite sex is beaten down by the idea of fidelity.
