Men for sure. I agree.

But cheating hurts no matter who.

One time...is one time too many.

Excusez mon anglais, illusion!

Most places where men are still, first among equals, I think you will find that men are given to cheating slightly more than are women .

As for conservative societies where men and women are just not on a par, the odds on men cheating their partners is greater than the other way round. Cheating is something that women can ill-afford in such societies where their rights remain severely restricted.

Addendum:

I meant to say the odds on men cheating (in para2) is much much greater in comparison to the statistic on men cheating (in para 1)
Merci

Interesting R.O. Should that be another reason women in Kuwait should get their right to vote? or it wouldn't make a difference.

I guess the second questions should be why do men cheat?

Illusion,

On the question of voting I believe women should get their vote purely, because it feels right. I cannot fathom why anyone should need to justify granting of a basic human right; something that in essence, is as fundamental as the right to a dignified life.

In response to the latter part of your question - in my book, voting rights might or mightn't make a difference to the skewed gender graph that we see, on cheating. I don't think it really matters. After all we are not looking to utilize the voting mechanism to even out this gap in cheating :)

Why do men cheat?
Men cheat mainly because they think they can get away with it.
Other than that the common denominator to cheating between men and women, are lust and greed for money/power.
I must say, I find it most intriguing that whereas men almost always cheat out of lust, greed for power/money equally factors into the feminine cheating equation as does lust . Which brings us full circle to your question - is imbalance of gender rights the prime suspect here?
Me thinks it is.What say you?

They cheat equally but in various forms. Men are direct in their cheating. Women are superb conniving at hiding it. Men do not have as much patience in hiding their adultery as women secretly do. A woman can cheat while making herself appear innocent all the while as she makes the man feel he is the one cheating or committing something illicit.

Damn, I love women! They are such a paradox in motion!

There are a lot of reasons men cheat, but I don’t think it has to do with equality matters. Some reasons men cheat in my opinion:
1. Being monogamous for some men is just impossible. That’s why I think god gave men the right to marry 4 women in Islam.
2. They got married to someone that was chosen for them (applies mostly to Arabs)
3. They were infatuated or lusting after their partner in the beginning and of course it faded away
4. They are stuck in a miserable relationship and can’t get out of it for different reasons
5. They got married for the wrong reasons
6. There is something lacking in the relationship that the partner is not providing
7. They can get away with it (as you said)
8. Last but not least some men are just plain jerks

So I don’t think it has nothing to do with equality as you will see.

Yes women can be very deceiving when it comes to hiding things. As for cheating though I don’t believe its equal. Its not easy for most women to just hop into bed with someone just to get sexual satisfaction.

Hiya,

I hate to sound like a doubting Thomas but if I may say so, in actual fact, what you've drawn up is a UNISEX check list of the many reasons why people end up cheating on their partners.

Women too, are not immune from the reasons cited for men cheating(points 2 through 8 may equally apply to women I think).

In respect of the bedroom department I could not agree with you more.
Men tend to be more adventurous of the two and in keeping with their traditional role as risk takers are often found to err- not to suggest that I condone such masculine hanky panky but there's no softer way of putting it across, I am sorry.
Cheers,
R.O.

Yes women might cheat for the same reason but the probability of the man cheating exceeds the probability of the women cheating. And of course men are more daring when it comes to sex and more creative. They have kinky minds, which might be another reason why they cheat more than women. And I am not saying women are not kinky just maybe not as much as men :)

Is it just me, or were gay unions totally disregarded in this post?

Steady now,1814:

Y-A-G unions? Why drag poor majlis il- shurra into this? :)

Illusion:
As per 1814's suggestion I wonder who cheats more - gays or lesbians?
