I know you're trying to be funny and witty (you're neither, but you've cornered the monopoly on the moron market, congratulations). But on a serious note, men (and women) don't stray because of their partner. They stray because of how they feel (or want to feel) about themselves. Infidelity usually has little to do with your partner, and more to do with conflicts that arise between the self-imposed construct of who you think you are, and who you really are.superwalrus wrote:#1 reason why men cheat: their wives get fat
Spouses suffering an infidelity are rarely the target. They are, for lack of a better term, collateral damage. If a spouse can get his or her mind around that, they can begin to see that the violation of the trust, while painful, wasn't directed at them personally. Sure, there's anger, pain, doubt. But there's also hope, too. Especially if the offending spouse expresses a strong desire to explore the motivations that led him or her to stray, and to work on those issues, hopefully to understand and communicate more effectively with one's self, and ones partner.
I sincerely hope none of you ever have to go through that. And if you do, I hope you're able to tap your indidual well of courage and faith to help get you through it, if you are either the offending spouse, or the one who suffers the infidelity.
