More women are cheating on their partners according to a number of new studies.
One study carried out by a British marriage bureau revealed that 20 per cent of ladies have previously been unfaithful, while a survey by AskMen.com found that 5 per cent of women had cheated, compared to less than 2 per cent of men.
So why are more women being unfaithful? We take a look at some of the reasons...
Relationship expert Seth Meyers says that "when women cheat with other men, the other men usually compliment them and make them feel sexy in ways their current partner isn't doing.
"Cheating often occurs in relationships where she isn't feeling connected emotionally to her current partner."
So men beware if your wives and girlfriends feel unloved, underappreciated or even ignored.
If a woman feels that she and her partner or husband no longer have anything in common, she may find herself drawn into an emotional affair with someone who shares similar interests.
However, an emotional
affair can quickly progress to the next level and become a sexual
They're bored with their sex life
Couples who've been together a long time often complain that their sex life has become staid or stale. That may prompt some women to look elsewhere to satisfy their urges.
Women can feel taken for granted and need a little excitement now and then.
Of the top reasons why women cheat, most can be remedied or avoided completely through love, care and support from their partner.
They want to get caught
Relationship author and specialist Bonnie Weil believes that most women cheat as way out of a relationship.
This is especially true of married mothers, she says:
"If the woman has children, she has a hard time leaving the husband without the feeling of guilt, but that subsides if shes not the one whos initiating the break-up."
To relive their past
It's easy for anyone to look back at their past relationships through rose-tinted spectacles. Going back to an ex can make women feel younger and more carefree but that feeling is often temporary.
This solution never lasts and it's not about that ex partner and what they were like, it's about the woman she was when she was with them and trying to get her back.
