When you think about cheating in a relationship, you usually think that it is the man that cheated on the woman. This is a stereotype that has been developed through the years. As it turns out, women cheat almost as much as men. Here are five reasons why women may go rogue on their guys.

1. If a woman is going through a rough transition such as losing a parent or hitting a certain age she may seek comfort in the arms of a stranger to distract her from what is happening in her life. This can even happen during happy transition periods such as an engagement.

2. When women feel that they are not being thanked or appreciated enough they may find someone who does that for them. When they don’t feel appreciated at home it can cause depression and frustration.

3. If a woman feels that her relationship is threatened or feels that it is about to end, she may run out to find someone new so that she is not alone. If the woman is the one that is about to end the relationship she may be cheating to test the water and see if she can be with other people and make sure it is the right decision.

4. If the relationship is not fun anymore, a woman may get bored. Laughter in a relationship keeps it strong so when the laughter goes, the relationship becomes lackluster to the woman. When they find someone that makes them laugh and that they have fun with, they may think they have found what they are missing in their own relationship.

5. If things could be a little spicier in the bedroom, but are not, women may stray to get the good s*x they are looking for instead of putting in the work and fixing the bedroom antics in their home.

  1. NO!!! The majority of women do not cheat because of any of those reasons listed above. They may use those reasons as “excuses”, but the real reason women cheat is far from those lame reasons listed.

  2. There are no excuses for cheating either by male or female these are all man made reasons and if people buy into this more relationships will be broken because now they feel they have valid reasons to cheat.The truth is if you love your mate with your whole heart soul and mind in good times as well as bad times than nothing will lead or cause you to stray into someone else arms period

    • The only one you’re supposed to love like that is the Lord. He’s the only one you give your all to. However, I understand what you’re talking about but they’re saying that these are the reasons why they do it. It doesn’t give the act any validity.

  3. They are ALL valid reasons/excuses that could lead to a woman cheating….and I must agree the main one that stands out in today s time is being BORED! especially if you are at home there is only so much house work that can be done—eventually the mailman starts to look good, the young man at the grocery store starts to make you smile! and all of that makes that woman more and more vunerable and if she does not quickly identfy the problem and lead her partner to understand and help fix the problem then there are so many men that know just how to 'play' upon those vunerable NEEDS! so the article is definately true that is why no matter what —–you have to keep the realationship fresh and exciting once the 'fire' goes out one can easily find themselves getting the 'heat' somewhere else!

  4. They missed one. Well maybe it can be categorized under the first one which is going through a rough transition. Well after your husband cheats, the rough transition is trying to mend the marriage. The woman may meet someone who she feels she can confide in, especially if she didn’t have any friends or associates before the infidelity. Sometimes that relationship can go further than what she expects.

    Absolutely right. Cheating is extremely selfish and if you can cheat on somebody you claim to love, you don't love that person, I don't care what people say.

  6. Too much emphasis on me cheating when women are given the benefit of the doubt , the Madonna /whore complex. The assumption that their reasons are more substantiated and less carnal and simply is a double standard and a misnomer to the truth, to keep the fallacy of the woman’s sexual veracity hidden and less scrutinized. Its easier to blame the man. The media uses it as a tool to keep men and women at odds.
