Nowadays, when divorce and infidelity topics are on the rise, finding a solid and lasting marriage seems increasingly hard. According to a study, 53% of marriages end in divorce in the United States, while 41% of couples admit to having been involved in at least one infidelity, whether physical or emotional.
However, there is a very peculiar phenomenon: men do not always leave their wives after their infidelity. In fact, it is more common that they don’t. The questions are: why don’t they do it? And what stops them? The answers are simpler than you think. Keep reading and discover the 5 most common reasons.
One of the most common reasons for infidelity on the part of men is routine in sexual life. However, after having an affair, they do not leave their partners for the sake of economic, social, and even emotional stability of their relationship. In short, they already have what they need.
2. Complications of a divorce
It is well-known that going through a divorce is not easy. So, men prefer to leave things the way they are and continue with a double life instead of going for a painful and exhausting process of divorce.
3. Because they still love their wives
Although it is impossible to believe, it may be true. Infidelity and love can go together. If you don’t believe it, think about the times when you have let your loved ones down. There may be reasons, other than lack of love.
Of course, lying to someone you vowed to love is awful. But, many men have done mistakes, and in most cases, they didn’t stop loving their wives.
4. The children.
Perhaps, it is one of the most common reasons. Men choose to stay with their wives for the sake of their children to try to provide them with a "normal family".
5. Because it is something temporary.
We are not trying to justify anybody, but sometimes men need a break from marriage and routine that can be overwhelming. They see it as a "vacation" from marriage, and in most cases, it doesn’t have major consequences.
The most important thing is to maintain good communication with your partner and be open and honest. Infidelity can never be justified, but it does not always mean that there is nothing left of love or interest.
