> Usually, the more common story or point of view is that the man cheats on the woman, but what is it like when it is the other way around? With men essentially being the creatures with the bigger and more easily bruised egos, having a women cheat on them can be a huge blow to their self-esteem. These are the top 10 reasons why women cheat on their spouse. 1. The woman is looking for excitement to spice up her life. Unfortunately, some magazines and authors support this. Many women tend to get bored in long term relationships and will want to do something “on the side” to spice it up. Eventually, it becomes a bad habit that is hard to break. 2. The woman doesn’t know how to break up with the man. The weaker women normally cheat to get out of a bad or boring relationship. They feel that it’s an easier way out and gives them an edge over the dumped male. 3. The woman feels too restricted or suffocated. There are men out there who tend to restrict their women too much in terms of what they can or can’t do with or without them. The woman then feels frustrated as she cannot do the things she likes to do, and so she reacts like a normal spoiled and sheltered teenager who wants to assert his or her independence would- do something rebellious and dangerous to compensate for these restrictions. And what better way to do this than cheating, right? 4. The woman wants her man to hold on to her. Sometimes, insecurities get the best of a woman, and there will be times when she will feel undervalued and unappreciated by her man. To get his interest back, she cheats on him in order to get him running after her (but a lot of times, this just backfires). 5. The woman is jealous of another woman. When a woman notices that her man is paying extra attention another attractive woman, she gets him back by cheating on him. When the guy accuses her of cheating, she can easily get her own back by calling his bluff and divulging her observations. 6. The woman was cheated on. Some women have the guts to cheat on men if they cheated on her first.
