What are the main causes of increase in infidelity between married couples?
Hi Mulash, Infidelity can be seen as one being unfaithful to his/her sexual partner and there really has been an increase of this vice in many marriages. Some of the causes of infidelity can be seen as follows:
1. Lack of sexual satisfaction: This occurs when one or both partners do not feel sexually satisfied during and after intercourse with the other partner.
2. Money: This happens when one falls prey to a man/woman outside the matrimonial home who offers to settle all their bills if only they will do what he/she asks from them and most times, it’s sex.
3. Greed: This is the insatiable desire in people to possess all things against all odds and they don’t mind the length they go to get it even if it means being unfaithful to their marriage partner.
4. Influence of friends: The kind of friends one keep after marriage can also push him/her into becoming unfaithful to his/her marriage partner.
Regardless of these causes, the major reason infidelity is on the increase is LACK OF CONTENTMENT. We are not content with what we have and there’s nothing the enemy loves as a greedy heart. It serves as an avenue for other vices such as adultery, fornication, stealing, cheating, lying, etc.
The Bible tells us that Godliness with contentment is great gain.
Remain richly blessed..
