I ran across this article:
How could you rely on stats in affairs? Who would openly admit to straying? And for those that do partake in research, how honest are their answers? There are many reasons why women have affairs, some do it for sex, some for validation, some for the thrill of it, and some for love. Women have affairs the same reasons men do, and yes women in affairs are not as easily discovered, because most women are so selfless in all other aspects of their lives, that unusual behavior goes under the radar.
....yes, yes, yes...polls and research about sex/infidelity/theft/breaking the law in general are hard to (for me) "take"...people respond in different ways...some that respond are inclined to skew their answers (most, I think)...they want to answer in the "right" way...others might want to answer in the wrong way, just to make it interesting...others are looking to explain their behavior (even in an anonymous way)...I think that people cheat because at that moment they want to have sex with that person more than anything else...they also cheat because they are caught up in the 'I'm young, flirty, and sexy again"...they also like the elicit aspect of it...plain and simple, people cheat (having sex, spending money secretly, engaging in emotional attachments) because they want to and they try to hide it because they don't want to be caught...
