I know women do it too... But I want to know what are the possible reasons behind a man cheating on his wife or partner?

Well the problem is that women do it way more and it is a lot worse when they do. Typically, but not always, women need an emotional connection to cheat. So when they betray their partner it is just a thousand times worse.
I was with my ex wife 25 years. I never once thought about cheating. I met her jan 10, 1989, left for the Air Force on Feb 14, 1989. When you get out of basic ANYONE can get laid. I turned down 7 women, including the offer of a 3some. Because I would never be able to live with myself. and at that point you could make a argument that I only knew her a month and it wouldn't be cheating. But I went home on leave may 27 and proposed.
But Men that do cheat is because something is missing from the relationship. Something they need to be happy. Sex is just the acting out of trying to fill that void. The difference is that men can have sex without emotion of any kind. To get a guy to cum just takes friction and time, nothing mental is going to keep it from happening, only delay it.1

I was faithful for 15 years, and the thought of cheating never crossed my mind. I never even thought twice about infidelity. It just wasn't anything I ever thought I would have to struggle with. Then one night after 13 years of marriage, he told me that he still cared about me and didn't want a divorce, but that he didn't want me and wasn't attracted to me. Just like that. And now, being faithful is a struggle for me. Every day I have to make a decision not become a cheater. It's hard! I never pictures myself being tempted in that way. At all. But it feels like my heart shattered when he told me that, and I just want to feel wanted again. If not by him, then by someone else. And not being able to control how he feels is so frustrating.1
