both sexes cheat (imo)

* for fun
* for revenge
* because they no longer linger feelings of love
* for lust
* for some reasons (in the end its still unreasonable)
* because of a certain situation ( ex. a person needs comfort and he/she is comforted by someone leading to cheating)
* because they are jerks and sluts.
* they are somehow lost in their life
* some say they don't know
* just for the heck of it? (n.*)



there are many reasons why a person cheats and the cheater can only answer why he/she cheats to their partners.

I suggest that you go look for it. You'll find exactly what I described. That is, research that finds that both sexes cheat the most often. There's nothing conclusive.

I find it interesting that most of the posters here are young and probably not , nor have been married. Having been married and divorced (not for unfaithfulness) after 13 years, I believe I can answer this. Most couples when married have no idea what love or respect is. They also have expectations for each other that can never be met by the other. As an example, the woman wants romance 80 to 90% of the time, while the guy wants sex and then left alone. I know this sounds cynical but after experiencing it and have gone through counseling with other divorcees, I have realized that most of us don't have a clue what real relationships are. When relationship becomes stale, hurtful and etc. either party will find someone to console them on an emotional level and end up having an affair. This is not true for all marriages and there are dirt bags from both sexes that just don't care and hurt each other. But I find that, that is not most couples problems.

There is no doubt that both sexes cheat. However, studies show supporting evidence that men are more likely to cheat on their spouse than women.

According to About.com, "In general, men are 7 percent more likely to have an affair than women." - http://newlyweds.about.com/od/lovesex/a/havinganaffair.htm

According to Wikipedia.com, "Fifty United Kingdom divorce lawyers were asked to name the most common causes of their cases in 2003. Of those who cited extramarital affairs, 55% said it was a cheating husband that precipitated divorce while 45% it was a wife's cheating." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infidelity

And HubPages.com states that "studies, undertaken by Atwood and Scwartz in 2002, showed that 55% of married women and 60% of married men engage in extramarital affairs at some point in time or the other. According to Monogamy Myth, however, the numbers are 60% of the men and 40% of the women are sure to have extramarital affairs." - http://relsol1.hubpages.com/hub/Infidelity-Statistics--Relationship-Problems-Uncovered

I'm all for gender equality, but as a man, I more often take the side of the female because I know that in a male dominated society like we have today, people are less likely to do the same. I am proud to be a man, but I would not be proud being a liar.

I have to leave for class soon, but as I said, there are studies showing that both sexes cheat the most. So of course, it is easy to find links that support your argument that men cheat the most. Just the same, I can easily post links that show that women cheat the most.

I'm not debating for the sake of gender equality. Nor do I mean to disrespect you any either, of course. What I'm saying is that the research says both to be true, and is therefore inconclusive.

Actually I don't think you could because I sure couldn't and I did try. If you do find some let me know because that might be pretty interesting. But of course, they will probably take a lot longer to find. And I bet if you did find any, I would still have more sources. Good luck with that.

usually due to being tired of the other, and not having needs fulfilled. and it's for both sexes. Like having a prude girlfriend or boyfriend, or people who make excuses and see intimacy and time together as more of a chore or task than.

We cannot control our hormones. Girls can hide non-existant boners. Once a girl sees a boner, she thinks 1 of 2 things.
1) OMG EWWWW like dude GTFO RAPIST!
2) Damn, pretty big, I wonder if I set him off.

When it's the second one, the girl might make a move and the penis flows with her move and BAM Chlamydia. jk. but yh, thats how quick men can cheat.
