When men cheat, women are quick to blame the other woman. Why is this so? An expert breaks it down for us.
According to relationship expert Charles J. Orlando men who cheat often admit knowing perfectly well that they're hurting their wife. In turn, the woman that’s being cheated on often blames the other woman. Here’s why:
Hard to accept that he betrayed you
Hating and shaming the other woman is much easier than admitting that your man is treating you like dirt. And that he chose to hurt you that way. He's okay with getting his needs met at your expense.
It hurts less
When you’re the one being left, or cheated on, it’s really painful to think that the person you loved made a choice not to be with you. It’s much easier, instead, to think the other person cast a spell that your partner was helpless to resist.
You don't want to face your own flaws
It's hard to admit that you made the wrong decision to trust your spouse. After all, you love him and want him in your life, so it's hard to see him as the villain.
