There are a countless number of reasons behind a cheating partner.
You could be doing your 200% and they can still cheat. You could not be doing enough and they still will not.
There could be intimacy, passion, longing, desire, madness, craving and what not but neither of them guarantees anything.
Happy partners, sad partners, satisfied partners, unsatisfied partners, close partners, distanced partners, everyone can chat if they want to.
There are two things you must understand about cheating.
First, it is a choice. Second, it has nothing to do with you.
It doesn’t mean you’re not worthy of loyalty. It doesn’t mean you’re not enough.
Cheating means the other person wanted to cheat and they did.
There is no whys and hows and ifs and buts.
Can a Relationship Recover from Infidelity If the Cheating Partner Still Denies It?
Just like cheating is their choice, continuing the relationship could be yours if you want to.
What matters is how much you both are willing to give in to rework and rebuild it.
And how much hurt you’re willing to bear—because it’s going to hurt.
We attach our relationship to our sense of self-worth.
It shatters us to see that the other person overlooked the castle we built for them and went to someone else.
And what are the odds the other partner will repeat it.
As far as my intuition says, if someone can cheat once, they can chat twice and thrice and every day.
And I think they most likely will unless they have some grand realization.
