Men Don’t Forgive Cheaters As Easily As Women

by Linda Franklin

Cheating – not a good thing – most of us would agree, but men find it harder than a woman to forgive this betrayal.  If you’re a woman who is thinking about confessing  an indiscretion be ready for the explosion of anger and grief that will follow.  It’s probably even worse than you imagine.

While infidelity has traditionally been regarded as a masculine trait, an increasing number of women are cheating on their husbands. Financial equality plus more time spent at work are fueling this role reversal.

It wasn’t so long ago that women would  have felt obliged to stick at an ailing marriage, these days they don’t feel so compelled to stay.

A surge in power may have propelled women to be unfaithful but the male attitude isn’t changing quite so fast.  For a betrayed man, it’s a slight against his manhood.   It goes right to the core of his identity.

For men, the sexual component of their wife’s affair is very important – they are more concerned about the sexual aspect than if their wife loved the man she slept with.

‘I don’t think a woman’s reason for having an affiar is that different from a man’s –  they’re looking for attention, affection, emotional support that in that’s going to lead to a sexual encounter.

Before you have anything to confess, try improving communication with your mate.  Tell him how you are feeling and see if you can work it out together or with a trained therapist..  If you don’t  you might be headed for a blowup you are not prepared for.

The Real Cougar Woman is a 5-carat diamond who knows the importance of taking care of her health, beauty, relationships, finances and spirituality. Linda Franklin says, ”there is no stopping a woman who has a strong belief system, passion and a dream. All things are possible”. Linda’s book, Don’t Ever Call Me Ma’am helps women of all ages tap into their power and live life to the fullest.
