Cheating seems to be popular in our society. Maybe I lived a sheltered life, but I don’t remember hearing about as many husbands having affairs fifteen or even ten years ago as I do now. What is going on?
Part of me feels that affairs have always been common, but they are just more exposed now due to technology. For example, you can now track everything from a keystroke to a cell phone call. Cheaters are getting caught left and right because of technology.
I also feel like our society is changing to the point where people think that infidelity isn’t a big deal. I can’t help but wonder then where our morals, values, and integrity have gone. Really, have things gotten to the point where an affair doesn’t really bother the person cheating until they are caught?
Affairs are also happening more because there are more people willing to participate as the other women. The truth is, cheaters do not have to try very hard to find someone willing to participate.
I am not sure why so many people (men and women cheat) are cheating, but one thing is clear: it’s really sad that this is happening and devastating so many families. I get emails from women and men all over the world, often very hurt by a cheating spouse. This is a trend that exposes the lack of open conversation within a marriage that is necessary for a healthy relationship.
