Do people cheat only if they are not happy in their relationship?

My brother and my hubby brought up this in a conversation because someone they know. I said even if they are happy people cheat.

  • Some people cheat when there is basically nothing wrong in their current relationship. Lack of character, addictions, insecurities, self esteem problems, Ego.....all reasons they might. I'm I could think of lots of others. Some people simply cannot grasp the deep meaning of committment..

  • I agree happy people do cheat. It may not be as often as unhappy people do, but it does happen.

  • I agree with you. (from experience) ((no I wasn't the one cheating))

  • there has to be something wrong in a relationship to cheat. if you were happy with your partner you wouldn't have a reason to stray.

  • yea, even if they are happy they'll cheat it could just be purely for selfish reasons.

  • Some people just shouldn't be in relationships. I am 100% happy with the man I married and I will NEVER cheat on him EVER and he will NEVER do it to me EVER!!! I think if you cheat and you say your happy, you're not really happy are you? (I don't mean you personally, just the way I wrote the answer).

  • I don't think its good to assume your man will never cheat. It just makes it hurt more if he does.
