Facts about extra marital affairs

24 August 2016, 06:43Marc Mbugua

Here are some facts you should know about extra marital affairs:

1. It’s still cheating

Cheating is cheating whether it is a one night stand or sustained clandestine affair. There are women who willingly choose to pursue affairs with men who are either married or already in committed relationships with someone else. Either way, the relationship is based on cheating since this is not your ‘genuine’ and/ or formal partner.

2. High Risk for Sexually Transmitted Diseases

When involved in extramarital affairs you are sleeping with a man or woman who is possibly sleeping with another and who knows, maybe the latter is also sleeping with someone else. This increases the chances of catching Sexually Transmitted diseases as compared to a committed relationship.

3. It is short term and based on convenience

The extramarital affair is usually a short-term thing. While a few men have relationships with their mistresses for years, this is the exception, not the rule. Most guys who get involved with other women do so because the man can give incentives, pay her bills or provide company.

Many people who choose to engage in extramarital affairs are not interested in commitment.
