Why Do People Cheat on People They Love

Why Do People Cheat on People They Love?

Cases of unfaithfulness in relationships are on the rise. Today, you can see a happy couple on the internet or your street and hear one cheated on the other in the next few days. What are the reasons behind this?

One Or Both Partners Has Fallen Out of Love

 Falling out of love means one or both partners are not getting much attention and care. This prompts looking for love elsewhere.


When one or both parties feel unloved, disconnection or detachmentsets in. This slowly drifts the romantics apart, resulting in cheating.


When one partner takes care of everything in the relationship, they feel more burdened. Since they see themselves as the critical part of the relationship, cheating on the other person doesn’t seem like a big deal.
