Whenever we hear stories of people who cheat in their relationships, it can be very easy for us to cast judgment and blame. We rarely ever give cheaters the benefit of the doubt because there is no justifiable cause for cheating on your partner at all.
We always see the victims as the ones who are in the right. However, we shouldn’t make the mistake of thinking that everything is just black and white. Maybe you would be able to empathize with the stories of these real women on why they cheated on their men:
1. “I just completely fell out of love with my husband.” – Laura, 30
We tried to make it work but we just couldn’t find a way around our issues. And after a year of trying, we just decided to call it quits on one another. We decided to move on. I never got in touch with that mutual friend again. I wanted to turn over a new leaf and start fresh.”
2. “My partner never did anything to make me feel loved or wanted.” – Grace, 29
I was in a very serious relationship with my boyfriend. We had been together for around 2 years at that point but the magic just seemed to fade away over time.
3. “In some weird way, I cheat as a way to make sure that I don’t get cheated on.” – Karen, 34
