According to the Journal of Couple and Relationship Therapy, approximately 50 percent of married women and 60 percent of married men will cheat at some point in their marriage. I don’t think anyone goes into a marriage without having some history of cheating on a girlfriend or boyfriend. My question is, what’s the point in getting married, if you are already have a pattern of behavior that you really don’t expect to change.
Since it’s a 50/60 split, I think I’d rather discuss the 60% of men who cheat, because basically because I’m a woman and that’s the only population that could possibly affect me.
I’m not even going to delve into the possible reasons why men cheat, but a few that quickly come to mind are:
I also think there is a small, minuscule population of men who feel “stuck” in a bad relationship, and who choose not to break up their home. But like I said. Minuscule. Even then, it’s still called cheating. There’s really no way to sugar coat it.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of women who prefer married men, so cheating makes it just that easier for them. Why? Well apparently they’ve suffered severe brain trauma sometime during their life and are just that dumb. These women will actively seek out married men, and always use the rationale, “Well I can just send them home to their wives”. Bitch. Please. There’s a psychiatrist waiting to take your co-pay and help you get over these issues.
Then there are the single women, who don’t actively seek out married men, but seem to be a magnet for them. I’m pretty much convinced married men are quite possibly the best liars to walk the face of the earth. I truly don’t understand the rationale of married men who cheat, and at this point in life, it’s probably not worth understanding. Once again, why even bothered getting married, if you have a history of not being able to stay monogamous.
A word of advice, married men, it’s probably best that you stick to the population of women who want to deal with you. It’s pretty easy to figure out who they are with a simple question, “Hey, I’m married. Do you care?”. Typically if you run across a woman who doesn’t care, she’ll simply respond with a, “No, can you buy me a drink?”. It’s that simple. It is not rocket science. You don’t need to know derivatives to figure out who they are. Hell, if you wear your wedding band out in public and women still approach you, they’ve made it that much easier for you to figure out who they are. On the flip-side, if by chance, a woman responds with a “Yes”, they do care if you’re married. Walk away. Leave it at that. That’s easier than being on the next episode of Cheaters with Joey Greco. An even easier solution…how about staying single and if you happen to get married, get yourself a sisters-wife, move to Utah and have all of the women you want.
