Marriage: Top 10 Reasons People Have Extramarital Affairs
People all around are having extramarital affairs, regardless of their socioeconomic background or location. Here are some possible reasons as to why people indulge in an extramarital affair.
People who marry in their early 20s would most likely have achieved some level of stability and social standing by their mid-30s. At that point, they feel that they did not really enjoy life in their 20s, and find it exciting to indulge in an extramarital affair. It is their way of experiencing the thrill and excitement of dating.
Married for the wrong reasons
Many people enter into marriage for the wrong reasons. If they meet someone who is in any way a better match than their current spouse, they are immediately attracted to him/her. And what starts as a simple friendship usually ends up in an affair.
Inability to deal with changes
Life throws changes at us almost every day. Most of us are able to deal with the small changes. But the bigger ones are tougher to deal with — a serious illness in the family, death, loss of employment, financial loss, etc. Many turn to people, apart from their spouses to deal with such changes. They find more comfort in the arms of someone new, perhaps someone not connected to their tough circumstances in any way.
Becoming a parent changes everything about a husband-wife relationship. Priorities change, the time you can give each other reduces and your immediate living environment alters drastically. And since most women are usually so busy being mothers, they probably don’t even realise this for a long time
This is probably one of the most common reasons for people to get involved in an extramarital affair.
