According to a study published by the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, found 57% of men versus 54% of women overall admit to committing infidelity at some point in their lives. And 22% of married men and 14% of married women admit to having an affair at least once during their marriages.

But the question is:

why husbands who cheat do not want to divorce but continue to be unfaithful?

1An unfaithful husband still thinks his home is the best place.

He always knew you, you cook for him, and you take care of the children. He feels comfortable in his life and is looking for a deal because he wants to try something new, not necessarily because he wants to change his life. A husband’s house is like a castle for him.

There is no doubt whether he should go. He doesn’t want it, because without his wife it would be difficult for him to run the house. Maybe there is no more love or passion, but there are friendship and respect. He wants a comfort zone where he can best take a nap.

2A cheating husband who needs a “break.”

I need a break

A CEO of a dating website for married people said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal that there are many cases where you have a good relationship with your partner. You are part of a good family group, both have duties, but the cheaters do not ask for separation in this case.

There is a great love between partners, but an unfaithful adventure is only a moment to relax and feel adventurous.

3Finding his answer about life in an affair.

There is an exciting story about an unfaithful husband who cheated on his wife. Yes, it was a total disaster. The woman crossed the whole spectrum of emotions, but after a while, she began to ask why. He didn’t seem to want to leave his family.

Never underestimate a man’s ability to make you feel guilty for his mistakes.

The answer was simple. He didn’t do it because something was wrong with her wife or because she was a terrible woman. He did it because something was wrong with him.

Some men think that if there is a new woman, something will change, and they will be happy, but that does not happen. They love their wives, but they can still have mental health issues.

4He really loves his wife.

A woman shared her case with a married man. He was a gentleman and a kind father who would not leave his wife. Many of us may wonder why he behaves this way.

Another man could answer this question. He had been married for over 20 years and had children. And yes, he loved his wife very much, but he had cheated for more than 15 years. He’s just a “fetish” for him. At the same time, he also feels guilty.

5Changing his life needs courage.


He has been living with his wife for ten years and was a perfect husband and father, but suddenly he meets his soul mate. This new feeling can be powerful and eat you from head to toe.

Sometimes some men prefer to get a divorce and remarry, while others don’t. They still have a great bond with their wife.

6Kids are reliable chains.

lawyer who has dealt with many divorces shared his experiences. It was excruciating to separate, but it was particularly painful to be a full-time parent no longer. These things can prevent many people from getting divorced, even if they are not satisfied with each other.

Maybe there is no more love between the spouses, but the responsibilities are still there, and these chains can be robust.

7The divorce procedure is painful.


The word “divorce” creates millions of bad emotions and associations. This includes dealing with lawyers, fighting, sharing property, and negotiating time management for the children.

Some men may prefer to leave everything as it is fair, so they don’t have to go through the tears, anger, and screams that accompany this experience. Even if there is no longer a healthy relationship, it is easier to find a lover.

Besides, he still doesn’t want to burden his children and wife.

8He realized he made a mistake when having an affair.

A man revealed that he had cheated on his wife with his close friend. He understood that it was a terrible mistake, but now he is suffering. The guy doesn’t know what to do or if he should talk to his wife about it.

Apologies, Don’t mean anything if you keep doing what you’re sorry for.

Of course, there are many opinions as to whether he should confess or not, but even if she found out, he doesn’t want to break up with her because he still loves her.

Your partner’s underlying addiction and self-control problems could be the reason why he cheated. Drugs, alcohol, and sex addiction are just a few of the diseases that can destroy a relationship. Addicts will often find it challenging to make healthy decisions, sometimes even hurting those they love to justify their isolation and self-harm.

10Anger or to Get Revenge:

Sometimes men cheat to “bind” with their wives or to solve a deep-seated injustice that they believe was served by their spouses. In these cases, they want their actions to be perceived by their significant other, who chooses deliberately hurtful behaviour.
