3 Reasons I Don’t Care If We Are ‘Psychologically Programmed’ To Cheat On Our Partners

1. If you lose interest in sex with your partner, you are free to break up with them.

2. If you feel that you could get something better from someone else, you can easily get out of your current relationship.

3. If you have a strong desire to cheat, remember that you are not trapped in your relationship.

I’m not sure how many more ways I can put it. Yeah, okay, monogamy just isn’t for everyone. I get that. I felt that commitment wasn’t for me for years before I decided that I wanted to settle down and give myself to one person exclusively.

But if you feel that a monogamous relationship is not for you, what are you doing in one?

There is nothing wrong with not wanting to be “tied down” and committed to one person. More power to you!

What there IS something wrong with is betraying and humiliating another human being. Humans are not predisposed to cheating in the same way they can be to things like mental illness. Cheating is easily prevented, you simply have to make the choice not to cheat on your partner.

If you are incapable of taking responsibility for your actions and try to defend your own poor decisions by claiming there’s a science behind them, you probably aren’t mature enough to be in a relationship. If you really love someone, it shouldn’t be a challenge to avoid deceiving them.

If you truly feel like you can’t help but to cheat, don’t get into a committed relationship. That will save you the trouble of having to be sneaky and undermining, and it will save others the pain and suffering of being betrayed by a person they thought they could trust. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
