7 Reasons Why Good Men Don’t Cheat On Their Partners
why Good Men Don’t Cheat

Reason 1: Good Men Appreciate What They Have

Men who are good at heart know that life in itself is a gift. They are contented with what life has given them That includes their partners. They value relationships and the feelings others have for them. Good men never play around with the emotions and the mental health of others.

They acknowledge the love and affection they receive from people. Being content with what you already have is not something you’ll find in people nowadays, but a good man never allows negative circumstances to keep them from garnering a conscience that fuels appreciation and contentment.

After all, the world is made of small things that make our lives worth living. Hence good men value the woman they love and feel grateful to have them in their lives.

Reason 2: A Good Man Has Transcended His Primal Urges

The willingness to mate is central to a man’s primal urges. It has evolved with the primal instinct of procreation in animals. While animals look for different mates with every changing season, men, however, cannot do the same.

To cultivate a society of value and culture, a man needs to control his primal urges. And a truly good man not only controls them but eventually transcends his primal urges to establish a consciousness that values the love that lies beyond physical attraction. Because it is not physical lust, but empathy and emotional bonding that truly strengthens a relationship.

Reason 3: A Good Man Sees Beyond The Ephemeral

While most men get carried away by momentous feelings, a good man knows and values the very essence of everlasting love. He knows that all the ephemeral sensations are nothing but mere infatuations that fuel impulses, not love.

And if a man were to respond to these fleeting sensations and take them as true love, then his virtue gets corrupted. It is characteristic of an animal to give in to these flicks, but if a man were to do the same, his nature is reduced to that of an animal. A good man is always aware of this.

Reason 4: A Good Man Has A Strong Conscience

Our conscience determines our value and the impression we create in society. A corrupted conscience is a prime cause behind heinous crimes. A good man understands that there should be a strong foothold over the conscience.

    I found this article pointless because it was assuming that the man who is cheating is still in love with his wife. Still considers her a best friend a partner and a lover. Many times there has been years of neglect and the relationship has soured while the two are simply maintaining a lifestyle agreement not an intimate partnership. There isn’t one among us that promises fidelity and love everlasting thinking we will be subject to neglect emotional abuse or a lack of intimacy. It’s about time society realized that we have no problem hanging people when they don’t follow through on their promise of fidelity but we have no issue with a partner reneging on their promise of a marriage full of intimacy and love. We have a hard time imposing behaviors but not banning behaviors … I get that but I also get that it’s high time we stop perpetuating the lies and take a real look at why so many spouses cheat. It’s not always about being a “good” guy or gal but what is no longer working in the marriage and why communication has broken down so severely that the spouse can’t even seem to express their disappointment hurt and resentment. An affair doesn’t always happen in a vacuum. As much as the betrayed and a holier than thou society would like to believe it does.

    Let’s be honest. Being with the same person forever and ever amen works well in fairy tales but not in real life. It’s no different then going to a buffet that advertises 150+ items but you’re told that you can only choose one item and you have to eat that one item every day for the rest of your life. It may very well be your favourite dish; however, over time, you’re going to get sick of it and want to try something else. That doesn’t make you a bad person it makes you human. Don’t let society dictate to you how a relationship should work.

      then you go for an open relationship and/or allow your ‘partner’ to explore other opportunities as well. you don’t cheat on someone and lie to them and ruin their outlook on trust, you don’t let them think they’re in an exclusive relationship when they are not.

    Hmm there’s some assumptions have to be made about cheating here, it is highly dependent on the couple. e.g. A couple with an open relationship may consider having sex with others fine, but deception about that cheating. Societal norms may condemn that as cheating and judge the individuals as cheats or bad, but are they really, if they’ve both respected their agreed relational boundaries?
