Why Do People Cheat on their Partners?

Physical attraction, romantic love and attachment involve three overlapping but separate brain systems. It's not really hard for somebody to sexually desire another woman or man, be infatuated with another, and still want to spend the rest of his/her life with the wife or husband. Because each kind of love or emotion serves a unique need and exists in a different context., cheaters are able to divide their emotional resources.

What makes one person more likely to cheat compared with another? The answers are both inconsistent and varied. People who are likely novelty-seeking, dopamine sensitive personalities have the most tendency to stray. But factors unique to the relationship- a need for attention, a desire to get out of the situation-are just as likely to fuel infidelity.

with Love,
