Extra-marital affairs are one of the leading reasons why many couples get divorced. It is quite common for anger, animosity, and resentment to be some underlying reasons why people are unfaithful in their marriage. Additionally, the lack of emotional intimacy or sexual compatibility frequently contributes to one spouse stepping outside of the marriage and cheating.
Interestingly, most extra-marital physical relations start off innocently and progress in emotional affairs and/or physical affairs. In any event, cheating is one of the primary reasons for divorce and is likewise a source of contention during divorce settlements.
