why is it ok for women to cheat but not men???

the reason why i ask this question is because i have seen a lot of women state that they are cheating on there husbands or SO's and a lot of women respond with that he must be neglecting her and that is why she is cheating and that is why it is ok for her to do it.

but, if a man cheats he is called every name in the book and gets bashed so why is it different if a man cheats then when a women cheats??

  • p.s. not sure what lovinangels theory is based on but studies have disproven her theory. The number one reason men cheat is over emotional dissatisfaction at home NOT physical/sexual reasons. Read the book (based on studies) Why Men Cheat. It was featured on Oprah recently. There are other books on the subject based on studies and none say men cheat primarily for sex. It's that they are dissatisfied with how the wife treats them at home. There are those who just want to screw around but it's not the number one reason they cheat so it's the same reason for men as for women.

  • There os absolutely NO difference in my opinion. Cheating is wrong for both sexes and it hurts to be cheated on. No cheating period.

  • i do not understand why men get bashed for it ..and the woman have to have some kinf of excuse.
    i do not aggree with cheating, i have never cheated on my man, i dont think my man has cheated on me either..and for whatever the reson, if he did...i would leave him
    i just think that most people like to make excuses up of "why" woman cheat..bc i guess we are more sensitive? im not sure.. but i do not think it is right for anyone at all to cheat..excuse or not.
