A new study suggests that cheating may have mental-health benefits for women in committed relationships, but the exact opposite was true for men
Jfl at believing in marriage in this day and age. Those cunts are now openly celebrating infidelity, because it makes them feel good.
Jfl. You just know, you just fucking know that if this were the other way around, with men feeling better after cheating and women feeling worse, they would just as readily use it to claim that men are pigs with no feelings or concepts of love or loyalty, while women are hopeless romantics who get mentally scarred by their own infidelity. But, because it is women who feel better after cherating and men feel worse, they celebrate cheating and openly claim that it's good, because they feel good after doing it while mocking men for feeling bad about cheating.The only problem is that for men, this impulse mostly backfired, and the more committed they were in their relationships, the worse they felt about themselves after an affair. On the flip side, women “seem to recover and even thrive after infidelity,” the researchers noted, echoing past findings that women are more likely to cheat when they’re unhappy with a relationship.
This fucking bullshit again jfl. "If you cheat, you're a piece of shit, but if she cheats, you should think about what you did to make her cheat."Basically, when women cheat, it’s possible they’re cheating their way out of a bad situation, often with someone they have a deeper romantic connection with, which improves their overall well-being. It might not be the most ethical form of self-care, but it can help some women who feel otherwise trapped.
Conversely, men tend to cheat more randomly, according to psychotherapist Robert Weiss, who wasn’t involved in the new research. “A man who casually cheats may do so without feeling a significant degree of emotional connection to a mistress, while a woman who cheats could see things differently, with sex and emotional connection intermingled in ways that make compartmentalization more difficult,” he explained in Psychology Today.
I don't even know what to say to this type of bullshit.In other words, men don’t cheat because they want to hurt their partner or even because they want to end their relationship, but because they got caught up in the moment and thought they could get away with it. So even if they don’t get caught, it makes sense why they would feel worse after the fact, especially if they love the person they’re with.
Women, on the other hand, don’t feel bad because they’re too busy looking for the door.
So, I'll just put here a gentle reminder for both you brocels and whatever random lurkers might find this thread, that 57% of liberal women say that it's always wrong if a man has an affair, but only 36% of them say the same about women having affairs, a whole 21 percentage point difference.
Few behaviors seem to provoke near-universal condemnation more than marital infidelity. Even as Americans have become more accepting of premarital sex, teenage sex, and sex between people of the same gender, there is a near consensus that marital infidelity is wrong. A 2022 Gallup survey found...
