  • we are all animalistic in nature. men were created to spread their seed to as many females as possible to keep their genes alive and a better chance of surviving. in the animal kingdom only a small percentage of alpha males get most of the females. cheating is natural. moral? no, but we are fighting temptations hard coded into our DNA. no other animal is monogamous. think about that. as for why men cheat? lust. we want sex, but on a biological level we just want to have many offspring and have them all survive. females want the most alpha male, because it ensures her offspring have good genes and survive as well. it's all a survival thing. on a emotional level, I think both sexes use it for revenge and also to boost their self confidence. sometimes a woman isn't getting enough attention in her relationship so she finds a man who fills that void whether it be emotional, sexual or both.

    • Emotions are linked to personal gain... biology prompts emotions... so they are tied together... advantages such as good genetics for offspring , gaining money , gaining emotional support which would be linked for the need of societal support , climbing your way up the social latter , biologically needing to release

Have an opinion?

  • For the woman she can be with a stable provider mate who treats her well, but receive better genetic material from the more attractive guy.

    For the man he increases his chances of spreading his genes

    • Economical and biological... ahh a perspective I've never thought of..

  • If a disease or virus comes along, you have a greater chance of *some* of your children surviving if they have different fathers or mothers.

  • Why do you think women cheat for emotional reasons and men physical? Is sex for women just a way to feel desired, loved and protected? Do they not desire the physical aspect as men do?

  • I think it is just bad morals and society seems to not shame it enough.

    If someone is married and has kids, I think there should be actual jail time for cheating if it can be proven on video.
