Relationships: Cheating

It’s the year of 2017 – and there appears to be an increasing culture of cheating in youthful relationships. Why? To what could you benefit from cheating on your partner? Perhaps your partner doesn’t have a body type you deem valid? Or maybe they lack a certain degree of intellect? That begs the question – why even start a relationship with someone if they don’t meet your physical or mental expectations? Are you simply bored, and want to toy with another humans emotions? Is it a game, how long can I go without getting caught, how much damage can I inflict on this individual?

On the flip side, maybe it is a matter of getting multiple things from numerous people. Perhaps it is the allure of receiving attention, physical contact, sexual pleasure and physical gifts from numerous people at once that drives people to cheat in relationships. Of course, those who cheat must at some point realize that there is rarely a long term benefit in cheating – those who are being ‘played’ for the allure of receiving are likely to find out, and leave the relationship. That leaves the cheater to go through the effort of establishing and building new relationships. The social repercussions of such actions, if exposed into his/her social life, is a negative consequence of their actions, too. Surely these consequences would steer potential cheaters from performing their actions, or motivate active cheaters to discontinue their decimation of human trust?

The cheater who cheats for the pleasure of inflicting emotional damage on individuals may have the satisfaction of their efforts when the relationship(s) come to a close, but they will also have to find, establish and build new relationships over a long period of time before the damage, again, is inflicted. In addition, although the “high” of destroying human trust, witnessing the emotional breakdown of an individual is a short term “benefit” to him/her, surely they would, at some point, feel guilty for their actions? Perhaps even guilty enough to discontinue? Unless guilt is easily overlooked in favor for the satisfaction of causing long term damage to another human being, or he/she is sociopathic or has sociopathic tendencies (where they do not much experience guilt for their actions).

This cheating culture needs to be squashed before anymore long term damage on how the youthful mind views and experiences relationships can occur.

As unfaithful relationships are on the rise, the result of this damage on the victims of cheating is starting to become apparent; how victims of cheating view relationships before and after being cheated on in a long term relationship can be drastically different.
