For years, both men and women have cheated on their significant others. In situations like these, some people try to work things out, but others rather call it quits. It’s a proven fact, that in comparison to both sexes, men are the worse, when it comes to infidelity. In fact, 98 percent of men admitted to fantasizing and having sex with someone other than their partners.
According to NBC’s iVillage, every 1 in 5 adults (22 percent) in a monogamous relationship has cheated on their partners. This percentage increases when dealing with married men. Although men know cheating is deleterious for their marriages and families, they still indulge in cheating, because according to a study done at Texas A&M University men have stronger impulses than women. “It’s male’s stronger sexual impulse–and not their lack of self-control that could be to blame,” Paul Eastrick said. So many times women of all different races, has given their own, but very similar diatribes as to why they believe men cheat, a popular excuse being “he can’t keep ‘it’ in his pants.” Eastrick may have confirmed that the popular statement is true. “When it came to self-control, there was no discernible difference between men and women…Cheating most often occurs when men fail to utilize their self-control and give in to their sexual impulses instead.” Eastrick agreed with women in this statement admitting that self-control is equivalent for men and women, men just give into their sexual impulses quicker than women.
Sometimes men can control their sexual impulses, but they get tired of the norm, and thinking sleeping with another woman will make them feel better about themselves. It’s quite the contrary. Men can blame impulses all they want, but it’s more to it than that why men seek sex from other women.
In the video is a clip from a Dr. Phil episode when a man admitted cheating on wife if eight years over 70 times with at least 20 different women. His excuse was that his needs weren’t being met. He also said they he only married her because they have children together. Take a look:
Women like the woman featured in this clip claim to stay with the men because of their children. For children to see their parents in that predicament isn’t good for them, because they may pick up the same traits.
It’s never easy to tell decipher if someone is a cheater in the beginning stages of the relationship, but Dr. Phil does give advice on how to spot cheaters.
