Why women cheat
02 February 2015, 10:42
Nairobi - Cases of married women engaging in extramarital affairs with their houseboys, gardeners and bodyguards have been on the increase recently.
A good example is when a bodyguard of the South African President Jacob Zuma committed suicide for fear of being punished after the media reported that he was having an affair with the President’s second wife, Nompumelelo Zuma. Then came the case of Akinyi Tuju, wife of Raphael Tuju, who was allegedly having an affair with her husband's former bodyguard.
So, what could be the reason why the wives of famous and rich guys engage in extramarital affairs, especially with people ‘not their class’?

Women cheat because of many reasons, such as:
When they are emotionally deprived
Women prefer to be loved and whenever such a gap arises, they will look for any available means to fill the gap. This explains the fact that whenever women cheat, they do so with a gardener, houseboy or even the workmate; they are the ones who are close to them as their husbands are out drinking or discussing business deals with friends.
The need to be appreciated
Women, like babies, love to be appreciated and if the man in their lives fails to do so, they feel like they are no longer beautiful. In such circumstances, anybody who grabs the chance and tell them ”you are beautiful” will definitely find a room in their hearts.
What determines the duration of a relationship or marriage is the way the man performs in bed. Sexual satisfaction is vital for the survival of any marriage and so if a man fails in this area, he is definitely opening Pandora's box.

Tit for tat is a fair game in the ladies' world and so whenever they realise their husbands are cheating, they are quick to revenge. They do so and make sure that their men know about the affair in order for them to “feel the way they always do when their men cheat on them”.
Falling in love with other man
Women can be attracted by a man at the first sight - this man could be the tall black and handsome man that every woman admires but never finds; so whenever opportunity arises, they seize it without giving a second thought.
