Unless you never let him out of your sight, you can't know this.
I once worked with a married construction worker, who met his girlfriend for a quickie during his lunch hour.
Because I know without a doubt. Not all men are cheaters i'm sorry to tell you that and even while we were seperated waiting on the divorce he didn't sleep with another person. I told him to date & do what he wanted. He told me that he was afraid of catching an std now days & it wasn't worth the risk to him. There are some men with values & respect these days. Rare but they are out there.

You are naive and I'm not used to trash. I had one of the "good" ones, or at least thought so, later learned plenty. I've been around enough men to know how they act when their lady isn't around. I think it's just your ego that keeps you from seeing things clearly. If he was as true to you as you say he must have been socially awkward and had no opportunities to have other women. The way you are portraying him he doesn't sound manly or interesting anyway so maybe he was faithful lol.

You are hitting the nail on the head. It all comes down to opportunities!! Any man will tell you that it's hard to turn down a woman stroking your ego no matter how much they love their wives or girlfriends. If a man can attract other women easily, the harder it is to stay faithful. It's just common sense.

Btw, lets remember that most men do not have emotional attachments to sex. It's just sex to most men so it's easier to cheat.

Faithful men in long-term relationships are very rare. I'm sure there are some out there but I would bet they don't attract other women often so they don't have to worry about cheating. I'm not arguing with you I'm just stating what I know and see with my own eyes. I know there are exceptions to every rule and it all comes down to the individual and most men find it very hard if not impossible to walk away from opportunities and women are far more the aggressors now which means men don't even have to chase them anymore.

I have been married over 10 years and have not once thought of cheating on my wife. We have argued and fought like most couples but I have never cheated. I have had plenty of opportunities, some with better looking women. Marriage is not just about looks. I know others have cheated and feel they have done nothing wrong. Some have no conscience. Some don't care about themselves or their spouse. That's just life.

To the woman married 18 years:

You said your ex husband, just wondering why you would divorce such a near perfect husband?

You almost sound like my husband. We have been married for over 15 years and I know for a fact that he has been faithful, as have I. We have discussed this issue before and agree that if a husband or wife loves and respects their spouse, and their wants and needs are being met at home, there is absolutely no reason for either to want to go looking elsewhere.

This is a second marriage for both of us and he says that unlike in his former marriage, now he can't wait to come home to me after work. It makes me feel good to know that he feels that way, but I feel that way, as well. We enjoy each other's company. We enjoy doing things together. Our values, goals, hopes and dreams are in sync with each other. Of course we've had disagreements through the years, but we have never seriously fought over anything. There is a mutual love and respect for each other that neither of us had in our previous marriages.

I understand that this is not the case for everyone. I feel bad for those who cannot feel confident that their spouse (male or female) will resist the attentions of the opposite sex, because those influences will always be out there, waiting to wreak havoc on the weak. But lucky are the ones who have a stong and loving relationship that will withstand those pressures.

I did not start this discussion to insult any man or woman.
But reading other discussions it seams women are ready to divorce at the drop of a hat, or pants.

There are exceptions to be sure, however if young women ready to get married, understand there is about a 90% chance their husband will cheat, they will know better how to deal with it when it happens.

As this cheating 90% of men are most likely not doing it with the same woman, that means there are a lot of cheating women out there too.

Some polls say as much as 60%.

I once knew a guy who was an expert at bedding women, he told me many of them cried afterword, and said they had never done anything like that before.
Never the less, they did do it, and most likely won't do it again.
But they have joined the cheating ranks.

Question is, why wouldnt they cheat. As long as they can go to work, stop off and see whoever they want during their supposedly work hours, and expect their woman at home and boss not to find out, why not? Their are many jobs, many places for lunch that a man can get what he wants. Not all, but most i know are self conceited pricks.

But when their woman does the same thing they are doing, well lets just say all hell breaks loose. Its different to them when the tables are turned.

They always think there's something better than what they got. Which, may be true but I hear men always saying women can't be satisfied when really it is men who are never satisfied and totally happy with the woman they have at home. I heard a man say once...there's the old and the new...they always want something new.
you couldnt be more wrong. As a guy who for awhile had two girlfriends at the same time I can say that was not what was going through my mind. what was really going through my mind is I now have this incredible girl that likes me and now I have another. It felt good after a series of rejections that i stopped counting a long time ago. its not something im proud of but it was never about one being better then the other.
