Study: Here’s why men with children often cheat on their spouses

In a survey that involved more than 5,000 cheating men, it has been found that 78 percent of the subjects were philandering while they were still involved in their first marriage. Out of those men, the survey found that 82 percent began cheating after they had had children.

The survey was conducted by Victoria Milan on a dating site for married and attached people. It dug into more details by asking the subjects what it was about having children that made it so hard for them to remain faithful to their spouses.

The answers were:

–        30 percent of the men said that sex with their spouses stopped being passionate after a baby was born.

–        23 percent said that they had problems in bed as a result of interruptions from their children during the night when, for example, they cried, were sick or had nightmares.

–        18 percent of them stated that their spouses focused all of their attention on their children.

–        15 percent of the men said that economic problems were the source of their marital problems.

–        14 percent indicated that other family issues were the cause of their marital woes.

Of all the 5,000 cheating men, only 22 percent were remarried and according to Sigurd Vedal, CEO of Victoria Milan, this is because “generally, second relationships, whether they be marriages or other committed relationships, are usually stronger because past experience has served both to correct behaviors and provide a more mature attitude towards relationships. It is also more common for problems arising from parenthood to arise in the first relationship; this is a function of both age and experience.”

Although children bring joy and happiness to a family, the survey shows that they do bring some stress with them. This also shows that couples need to make sure they don’t lose sight of their path together by being distracted by the little ones – no matter how adorable they may be.

Ending up in divorce proceedings has never truly helped anyone one.

    Interesting how the focus is on the men who cheat. The same reasons given for cheating could apply to women as well. People cheat because they want to cheat and think that they will get away with it. All this bs about not getting enough attention or interruptions are just excuses to put the blame somewhere else. Loyalty, respect and dignity has nothing to do with anyone else. You either have it or you don’t.

    I agree ^^. I think it is pure nonsense that people will blame the kids or everything else for cheating. Cheating is cheating and yes it is no ones fault except your own. People hate taking responsibility for their wrongdoings. I’ve done it myself! We all need to learn to start being stronger people and stop letting temptation and other things distract us from being who we truly want to be. However, there are those who are content with being low life’s and dogs. SMH

    Please check your research. As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a doctorate, the information given in this article about second marriages/ relationships usually being stronger is incorrect. Research and my 20+ years of experience shows that second marriages have higher rates of divorce. The divorce rate for first marriages is currently over 50%. This percentage increases each time a person remarries.

    Many of these men want to live an illusive life. They don’t want the responsibility that comes with children.
