Now, let us analyse the reasons why such things take place. To put in a nutshell, let us discuss about what leads to adultery.



When one partner causes loneliness for the other partner due to various reasons like job, long distance travel or any other career reason then the desire to seek company elsewhere may start.


Frequent Flirting Of A Colleague

When your colleague flirts with you or when you gradually develop the habit of flirting with your colleague, you tend to get addicted to it. This might cause adultery as you may not even feel guilty to go out with him or her secretly.



Though it may surprise us, some partners try to stray only to take revenge. Yes, when a wife hates a husband who beats her up daily, she may try to seek revenge by making out with a neighbour!



Sometimes, it is quite common to develop a strong bond with someone in our circle. That could be just a friend or a colleague or a neighbour. When the bond strengthens over years, you might feel like hugging the person one day, when your spouse isn't around. This is how adultery starts.


Communication Issues
