We said it earlier, cheating and infidelity, happen but we often wonder why we cheat. People and their relationships are complex, full of their own variations, experiences, and quirks. If you think about it, it’s amazing that most relationships work out at all. Monogamous relationships are comprised of two people with different heritage backgrounds, life experiences, upbringings, and sometimes even social classes coming together to live harmoniously together. Not the easiest of tasks – especially for a relationship lasting decades.
It’s becoming more common than ever to be found in a relationship with a partner who either has cheated in the past or is currently toying with the idea of straying. Most of the time, cheating can be rooted down to one of two issues: an issue with the actual relationship, or an issue with one of the individuals in the relationship. If you’ve found yourself in the middle of infidelity (whether done by you or done to you), you may be looking for answers on how to move forward. However, in order to move forward, sometimes it’s crucial to take a step back.
