It has been going on everywhere that some married men still seeks new relationships outside their marriage. What do you think is the reason behind this?

There are many reasons in my opinion. Sometimes people get married very young so they didn't have a chance to "explore" and have really only been with a couple of people perhaps. When they get older they might see younger women who find them attractive and it makes them feel young again. Also, men do not like to be open about feelings and they might be bored of their relationship with their wife.

Hi! I also believe with your opinion. I noticed this with one of my neighbor friend. He don't want to talk about it when I asked him in a polite manner but his action and words clearly leads to that matter. One day, while we are having good conversation in front of our house, our topic is about the result of basketball championship in our place. A sexy lady happened to pass by that made him diverted our topic to the girl. He kept on looking at the girl and uttering some words and kept on staring her until she turned to the next street. He showed so much interest with the girl and he told me his plan of going for morning jog everyday just to show the lady that he still can do the jogging in spite of his age.

You are a guy what do you think? Why do you think guys do that to their wives? The most awful thing that a man can do to his wife is cheat on her. Men can say a lot of excuses to cover up the wrong he has done or justify his actions even when he knows it is wrong. For me it's mainly about lust.

For me, I have a mixed feeling and don't know why. I love my wife and always want to give her the best and maybe almost everything that will make her happy. As a normal person, I also admire women with beautiful features like pretty face, sexy body, white and smooth skin and more. If that kind of lady seductively approach me in person, I'm not sure if I can still control myself. What more if we belong to one group or seeing each other more often because of work, the feeling may grow deeper. It may lead to special relationship. As a married man, I won't start the first move.

There could be a reason,with different reasons from different person(men) Maybe,becoz they are not happy with their married life. Maybe,for fun,excitement and ego tripper. Just for a change,or,out of friends influences. Whatever it is,there is a reason. The only problem is...why it is normal and natural for men to have mistress and cheat their wives,but,when,the wife cheats the husband and have an affair with other men,makes a big deal? Are men and women not equal on this matter?

I think there can be many reasons to why a man looks else where for another woman aswell as staying married.I think alot of men do not get the loving feeling from the person that he is married to or that he wants to have his cake and eat it.I know there are many people out there that have a person aswell as being married and to be honest they are not all men.

I think there are several reasons some married men have mistresses.sometimes they get bored from their married life.some just wants variety.some are really "playboy" by nature and they haven't outgrown it.it will really depend on the married man as to why he will seek a mistress.

the reason why some married men seek new relationship maybe because they are not happy with their partner or maybe they seek for something that they cannot find from their partner
