In the wake of celebrity stories of cheating in recent years, a psychologist and researcher who writes for Healthy Living recently published her thoughts on why successful and powerful married men cheat.
One theory posed as to why successful men cheat on their wives is that they think they won’t get caught. Because they have the resources to cover up their infidelity, like money and connections, they believe that they will never have to deal with the long-term repercussions of their cheating.
Another theory is that there is an unlimited amount of opportunities for men who are wealthy, famous, and powerful to cheat. Many men, whether they are actors or musicians or businessmen, are away from their homes and wives for several weeks or months at a time. During these time periods, it is easy for men to stray because they aren’t near their spouse.
A final theory is that men like this are often enabled by “yes” people. Many successful men have a team of people, such as assistants and managers, who do not want to speak out against their boss. Therefore, they are never told that what they are doing is wrong.
At the end of the day, people are individuals and reasons for cheating vary from person to person. If you or someone you love has been cheated on and would like to file for divorce, please contact the Houston divorce lawyers of Garg & Associates, P.C., at 800-242-2151.
