  • Men, in general don't...some do. I'm very sorry to hear that, but all men do not cheat. Leave him and find a real man. Once a cheater, always a cheater.

  • Because women like you stay with them.

    Grow a backbone and call a lawyer. Guaranteed it'll be the last time he cheats on you if he knows there'll be serious consequences.

  • We live in the state of Va and you have to have concrete proof to do anything in court i have kicked him out of my house.. We have two daughters together i took him back the last time only to try to make it work for the girls but he did it again so i cant do this again. and every guy i have ever been with has cheated on me.

  • Men arent the only cheaters. women are guilty of it too. He is in a childish stage, not ready for commitment or a serious relationship. Find someone worth your time. Especially since thats the 3rd time it happened.

  • If we knew why they cheat I am sure they wouldnt be cheating. My DH of 3 yrs is having an online affair with this chick, I love him and not going to leave (he is the only one working, and we have a child together) so I decided yesterday that if he could do what he wants with whom ever then why shouldn't I. So while I understand why a woman stays what I dont understand is why stay loyal to them.. Good Luck

  • Its not just men who cheat, women do it too. And mostly people cheat because they are not ready for serious relationship, or they are ready to get out of a relationship and are looking for someone else. I would say to leave him. If you keep taking him back he is going to keep cheating on you because you are basically saying "hey its ok, I'll still be here and always take you back". Leave him and find man who loves you and only wants you.

  • cuz they're horndogs and once they do it once, they figure might as well do it again
    it's lack of control, most likely has nothing to do with you

  • Simple answer...because they are immature punks who don't know a good thing when they have it, who don't know how to appreciate a good woman and who don't realize the consequences of their actions because the women decide to take them back. No offense.
    Obviously this doesn't apply to ALL men.

    'Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me' And this is your third time, time to call it quits.

  • it's their lack of maturity. I'm sorry he's done this to you again, please don't let him be able to treat you this way again.

  • Men cheat because they're chasing the fantasy of a carefree sex life. Sometimes, they've become emotionally disconnected from their partners and rather than put in the hard work required to fix things, they take the easy way out.
