Hi Everyone, I 'd like us to pour out our opinion why we think people cheat on their partners

People cheat because they are unfilled in their relationships. Men will do it for less substantial reasons than women, while women will usually do it because they feel ignored by their men. Men will separate a meaningless fling from the girl they actually want to be with. With women, they usually do it for more serious reasons.

Cheating as a matter of fact is disgusting and should not be encouraged in anyway.Its peculiar in both sexes but Nigerian men tend to cheat more in relationships even marriages than women,whereas younger men aren't willing to make any difference they emulate the older ones and tend to grow as the same.Pathetic

Girls and guys cheat. U cant rightly say who cheats more.

There are many reasons for cheating which i really dont subscribe to.

I would prefer a serial monogamist than a cheat cos it gives u more respect sort of.

When your partner cheats on you, it doesn't mean he or she doesn't like you anymore. Those who cheat just wanna explore the outside world and have a new and different experience. Its just an adventure. Variety they say is the spice of life. Am not saying am in support.

- Because they're self-centered

- Because they can, so they do it

Whatever the reason, it is because they seek satisfaction wrong or not.

How do you see a man or woman seeking divorce for lack of se, xu, al satisfaction for example? Many would rather 'cheat'

What about having a bully for a spouce?

How about having a sterilepartner?

What happens in the case of boredom?, an endless list.

One should just pray for the grace to overcome such temptations.

cheating in any form is degrading. it hurts mostly in a relationship.

It's an act of immaturity. It exhibits poverty of the brain

Cheating in a relationship is the worst thing you can give to your partner.

Grow up. what if the other retaliates, what happens?

The relationship MUST collapse!

The legit thing to do is to quit and not to cheat.

If you QUIT, nobody can accuse you of CHEATING.

If you no longer want to continue your relationship with someone, simply QUIT!!!

IT IS BETTER, HEALTHIER AND SAFER TO QUIT THAN TO CHEAT.

there is no need to romanticise the issue o. let us leave sentiments from it and address the issue, firstly what is cheating? are u guys saying that once u are going out with someone u shuld blank ur mind to all others ,get real, there aint no cheating till the ring is on, and seeing as the lot of ya are still single, it doesnt apply to u.we have all cheated one time or the other, whether u admit it or not. the way i see it some goody goodies are just tripping because they got bitten in the behind by their past actions.

take a cue from my friend, she says "when he or she is with u, they are urs", otherwise free ur mind or u will die of anxiety n suspicious". so mark my words "free ur minds", because in the end love is all that matters rite.

cheating,now dats d question.men and women cheat for various reasons.men cheat for adventure,to venture into d unknown,and above all because they are insatiable.women cheat mainly for attention to prove to their men that they are still in the game.only few cheat because they view sex as their reason for living. though reasons vary for cheating for each person,dis is my the answer,flora.

i guess we are all drawn to prospect of trying something new, adventurous especially when the euphoria of new found love has diminished into mere routine.

MOST PEOPLE NEVER GET TO MEET THE PERFECT ONE,AND THEY JUST DECIDE TO IGNORE SOME XTERRISTICS THAT THEY DON`T LIKE ABOUT THE PERSON THEY ARE WITH,BUT WITH TIME ITS JUST INEVITABLE THAT YOU WILL WANT MORE FROM THAT PERSON ,BUT JUST CAN`T GET IT.SO YOU END UP LOOKING SOMEWHERE ELSE.

THE MAJOR REASON IS;

YOUR SEX LIFE (MOST PEOPLE UNDER ESTIMATE THE POWER OF SEX IN A RELATIONSHIP,BUT THE TRUTH IS THAT SEX IS WHAT BINDS A COUPLE MORE THAT ANY OTHER THING) .

Cheating has a predictable partern. All we need do, both cheater and cheated, is to look out for them. Some people don't set out to cheat. They are tempted and responded. We must all be alert.

ds is one issue evry1 is gonna keep turning around n nu resons r made up for ds. personally i fnk cheating's a reflection of one's tru self. pple claim to cheat cuz :

1.they blive variety is d spice of lyf,

2.others r doing it so wots d harm intrying,

3. to test how much he/she really cares,

4. teach ur partner a lesson,

5.they r cowards. mayb they r no longer feeling their current relationship n want to cut out but aren't brave enuff to do d right thing.

it all boils down to d fact dt one wouldn't cheat in a relationship if u truly, deeply luv ur partner n care abt his/her feelings.

Some people are born cheats. but it is not because my BF is a cheat or what will warrant me to cheat also.

To me the only thing in a relationship is just to be faithful and play your own role in it.

If the two partners loves and understand each other, the possibility of one cheating is equals to zero.

people cheats because so many reasons:

1. If u are exposed to cheating before marraige u will cheat during marraige not matter what

2. If u dont fear God u will cheat and that will destroy u (any man/woman that does that lacks wisdom says the Lord [proverb])

3. lack of understanding in love (both partners have to protect their marriage by nurturing it u tell urselves what u like and appreciate everything done by each other); accepting corrections.

4. lack of Self satisfactory (be contented with what you have) thereby beautifying it so that it will not look boring 2 u.

5. u women u know what ur husband wants dont tell me u are a kid so try and do what he like e.g. dressing well, being respectful, etc and he love u even he can see u outside and thinks is another woman. so he will luv u the more try 2 beat others (f) in ur husband's eye he wont leave u

6. Men should do the same.

7. Learn to luv ok.
