Why do men cheat? Let me begin by saying not all men cheat. According to MSNBC survey conducted in February of this year of 70,000 adults, 44 % of married men and 36% of married women admitted to being unfaithful. Although these numbers are alarmingly high, they do not reflect all. 56% of the men surveyed indicated that they kept their commitment to their relationships.
Because there is high percent of men who are unfaithful, women everywhere want to know why men cheat. This question has been presented to me at just about every speaking engagement or book signing I have attended. These women believe that if a man has a good woman at home that is taking care of his needs, there is no need for him to look anywhere else. Unfortunately this is not the case. The reason behind why men cheat is much deeper and internal.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also (Matthew 6:21).
“Location is everything!” This term has often been repeated in business conversations. Something as simple as the side of the street a business is located on can determine its traffic pattern, and this subtle difference could be the distinguishing factor between the success and failure of that business. In matters of the heart, location also plays a very important role. Because you cannot see what is in a person’s heart, you must look to what come out of it to determine its treasures and values.
Men and women battle emotionally. Although they were created for each other, why do they so often war with one another? Where do these emotional battles begin? All emotional battles begin from within and the internal conflicts create external disagreement. Because of this, understanding the inner workings of man and woman helps to make sense of the outer struggle and end the war of the emotions.
