Cheating is something that has a terrible stigma attached to it, but it’s more common than you know, even in very committed relationships. While it’s not socially acceptable, it seems that people cheat on their partners despite what people will think of them.
Listen to these 5 facts that might surprise you about cheating:
#1 Cheating Doesn’t Mean You’re Unhappy
When you hear that someone cheats on their spouse, your automatic thought is that they were unhappy, but that’s not necessarily true. Sometimes people cheat purely out of sexual dissatisfaction. While they may be happy with the emotional aspects of their relationship, a lack in sexual happiness can lead a person to cheat.
#2 Cheaters Have Higher Sex Drives
Don’t get tricked into thinking you’ll know your spouse is cheating because they won’t want to have as much sex with you. Many times, the opposite is true. When people are cheating, they often find that their sexual desire increases.
#3 Cheating Injury Happens More to Men
In terms of injuries during sex, men are more likely than women to get hurt in their cheating sexual interactions. This is likely because sex is more intense and faster when you’re cheating and men can more easily injure their penises.

#4 Cheating Could Help Your Relationship
If someone cheats in a committed relationship, it is a clear sign that something was not going well in the bond. If a couple is really in love, they can use the cheating to lead to fixing their issues rather than letting it break them apart.
#5 Cheaters Tend to Choose People They Know
The majority of cheating relationships are not one-night stands or random people met in bars. Actually, cheaters tend to pick from a pool of people they already know. So if you suspect your spouse is cheating, take a good look at the people around you.
Now that you know these 5 facts about cheating, maybe your way of thinking has changed. It’s not always as it seems.
