Must Read: Facts About Extra-Marital Affairs

Infidelity, contrary to what most people assume, is neither rare nor exclusively male behaviour nor is it certain to end the marriage. 

In fact, almost a third of all marriages may need to confront and deal with the aftermath of extramarital affairs and women’s infidelity statistics are swiftly catching up to those of men. 

Infidelity has become an equal opportunity sphere. Even more bad news is that the Internet or online affairs have become extremely prevalent and, some claim, pose one of the biggest threats to modern marriage. 

The good news is that extramarital affairs are survivable and marriages can even grow stronger when members of the couple deal constructively with the affair by facing it, apologizing and ultimately forgiving or by simply accepting it.

Here are 26 facts about Extra-Marital Affairs:

1. Every affair starts with excitement then leads to regret.

2. Women cheat more emotionally by connecting with another man and for some, it leads to physical cheating. Men cheat more physically and hence can cheat with multiple women

3. The heart cannot multitask. At any given point, the heart will focus on one person. That is why you will start to give your spouse/partner less attention when you are cheating

4. Affairs will open up doors to your relationship/marriage that will be difficult to close

5. Affairs are an illusion that amounts to nothing once you get caught

6. The person who is cheating with you will also cheat on you

10. An affair is exciting because it is fresh. You had the same excitement when the love with your spouse/partner was fresh, that was the original, the affair is the counterfeit

21. If you were to put into your relationship/marriage the same effort you put in the affair; calling, sweet words, gifts, dates; your relationship/marriage will be strong

22. The reason why your relationship or marriage is not growing and being blessed is because of your affair

23. The reason why you have been single for long is that you are entertaining, flirting and sexing taken people
