KATHMANDU — Researchers have found seven reasons why people cheat, according to a new study by a team of American researchers.

For the study, published in the Journal of Sex Research, a team of American researchers surveyed 495 adults with an average age of 20 years. Each of these individuals were asked if they had ever cheated on someone and if so, why.

The main reason that came in light was a ‘lack of love’. More than 77 percent respondents confessed that they had ‘fallen out of love’ with their primary partner. They cited that it was the main motivation for seeking illicit relationships.

And, more than 41 percent of participants justified their cheating with the cause that they did not feel highly committed to their primary partner.

However, a relationship expert concluded that the cheating partner no longer feels that their partner loves them, rather than the other way around, hence the motivation, according to The Independent.

A “greater variety of sexual partners” came out as the second commonest reason. Experts surmised it with the similarities between our mating habits to animals’.

A feral means but the cheating in these cases has little to do with the person cheated on and more to do with the insatiable urges of the cheater.

Excuses like “I was drunk” and “It just happened” may be cliche but they did come out as legitimate reasoning for 70 percent adulterers.

More than half of participants, 57 percent specifically, cited “I wanted to enhance my popularity”, as a motivation. Experts concluded it to insecurity and low-self esteem.

And, more than 43 percent of adulterers said that they sometimes cheated as an act of pure rage. Either they wanted revenge on the primary partner or they just had a bad day.

More than a third of participants said they cheated because they wanted to have sex. Majority of these responders were males.

Meanwhile, most of the women adulterers cited ignorance or neglect in their primary relationship as the main reason for cheating.

Couples with a good sex life are more likely to cheat. Imge for representation only

Having great sex life in a relationship has been considered one of the most important factors as that would stop either partner becoming unfaithful. But a new research has found that having a good sex life only is not enough for partners as it may make one’s partner more likely to stray.

Researchers at the University of Florida assessed how newly married couples reacted to other people and found those with active sex lives were more likely to want sex with others

The team documented their sex satisfaction then monitored their interactions with others.

The researchers also found men with a more-attractive wife were less likely to cheat than women with a more-attractive husband . The authors said this sex difference is “consistent with evidence that partner attractiveness to men than it is to women”.

“With the advent of social media, and thus the increased availability of and access to alternative partners, understanding how people avoid the temptation posed by alternative partners may be more relevant than ever to understanding relationships,” the authors said.

They found that participants who quickly stopped looking at an attractive person were less likely to have affairs during the course of the study. The difference in the length of time of the gaze between ‘cheaters’ and ‘faithful’ people was just fractions of a second.

A person who looked at an attractive person for just a few hundred milliseconds longer was 50 per cent more likely to cheat than someone who stopped looking at the attractive picture.

As well as avoiding looking longingly at others, researchers found that faithful people also ‘downgraded’ how attractive they viewed others.

The authors say that faithful people — when asked to evaluate how good looking other people were — gave lower scores than people who went on to cheat.

At a time when potential romantic partners on social media that could tempt someone to stray is high, the authors say their research is more relevant than ever further suggesting that people who really enjoy good sex are more likely to be unfaithful because they seek out sex with more partners.

Younger people were also more likely to cheat. And men who had previously had lots of short-term sexual partners were also more likely to have an affair, although the opposite was true of women.
