Our discussion board is teeming with people who are experiencing a lot of different relationship problems, so we ask for the help Rosie Freeman Jones spokesperson for the online dating website, IllicitEncounters.com to comment.
‘Why do people cheat? I don't have a clue, I wish my ex-husband asked this before we got married, I think cheating is one of the worst things someone can do.’

“There are many reasons for infidelity such as neglect, revenge, boredom, the thrill of sexual novelty or sexual addiction to name a few. In some relationships, a partner may use another person to fill the emptiness in the relationship to take away the loneliness.
“Rather than end the relationship, taking their emptiness and loneliness with them into their next relationship, an extra-marital affair can sometimes allow someone the opportunity to reflect on their marriage.
“Every affair is different, and so are the reasons behind people’s decision to do this. Experience tells us that a large majority of the time, motivations differ by gender, with men searching for more sex or attention and women looking to fill an emotional void.
“Illicit Encounters warn people that embarking on an affair isn't a solution. There are many warnings over the website which explain that having an extra-marital affair is not the answer to a failing marriage.
“Being unfaithful is generally viewed as the worst thing you can do in a relationship, but actually, there is a whole catalogue of behaviours that are just as damaging – but often an affair seems to signal the end of a relationship that has long been in trouble.”
