Infidelity is a feeling that one’s partner has violated the implicit agreement of a relationship. This is often also termed as cheating, adultery or having an affair outside the existing relationship. Infidelity is a feeling and thus has no particular definition, is subjective and it varies among couples and even between partners in a relationship. There have been numerous researches conducted on this issue to know the reasons, as to why a partner indulges in the act of infidelity, and on the basis of the results of these researches, the causes of infidelity can either be emotional or physical.
The most common cause for infidelity is the lack of emotional connect between partners in a relationship. Due to an emotional imbalance in the primary relationship, a partner starts seeking for an emotional connection with another person. This new relationship might begin with friendship, but can lead to a more intimate relationship over the time span. And over time, the ‘friend’ becomes a priority and the person starts avoiding his/her primary relationship. Another very commonly cited reason for indulging in adultery is physical dissatisfaction with the partner. This dissatisfaction is generally because of lack of physical proximity and chemistry between partners in a relationship. For satisfying the sexual pleasures, the dissatisfied partner seeks pleasure outside the relationship and commits adultery.
Infidelity issues are some of the most painful challenge, which a couple can face. They not only affect the couple but also affect their children and families.
