According to a recent Gallup poll, having an affair is one of the most immoral things someone can possibly do. In a survey of 1,535 adults, a full 91 percent considered infidelity to be morally wrong—that’s a higher percentage than things like polygamy, human cloning, and even suicide.
And it’s no wonder—the ideal of marriage promises us a partner who will always be there for us, and who will be our most trusted companion for the rest of our days. Being betrayed by this person cuts us to the core.
But, despite the destruction infidelity causes, people still cheat. They do so for a variety of reasons. Perhaps they’re dissatisfied with their sex life, emotionally unfulfilled, or maybe they’re just plain bored. But all of them have secrets.
There are certain things that are true of most cheaters—things they’ll never admit to you. And if you’ve never been inside the mind of someone who has chosen to commit adultery, you might never know these things.
It is important, though, to know the truth about cheaters, and about just how deceptive they can be—especially if you suspect your spouse might be engaged in in an affair. In that light, let’s take a look at 7 things a cheating spouse doesn’t want you to know so that you can know what you’re really dealing with.
