We're humans, but still animals.
Cheating is no exclusivity of humans, but
it's known that cases of adultery are in their majority committed
by men. Women are keen willingly to find out why husbands and
boyfriends alike still getting home after a notoriously despicable
"late night at the office" with lipstick stained collars.
A survey dating 50 years ago disclosed nearly 60% of married men
(or men committed to long-term relationships) as positively unfaithful.
What's really mind-boggling is that figures remained practically
the same to these days.
So what's so baffling about it? Are boys'
just being boys or women know how to cover their tracks better?
Some people point to men as byproduct of a chauvinistic society.
Men are commonly taught to stick in as many moistly body cavities
as possible, whereas women passively bond interlacing. Most of
all having a cheating father inside the core of their families
as role model. So it would be a Freudian thing: a cheating vendetta.
In fact, even if factors may come to influence men's high rates
of adultery, odds further complicate issue.
Could men's knack for cheating being biologically
Accordingly to some scientists, yes it
could and definitely would. Some theories look into genetic factors
as what really act upon men by gearing up for cheating. Genetically,
men and every other male alike encompass the sole purpose of passing
on their genes to as many females they could. Oddly, females seek
out a mating pair that is as perfectly genetically as strong and
healthy for protection and better chances of survival, but not
necessarily long lasting.
There are many factors seemingly to corroborate
this theory. In nature, males of highly territorial species commonly
exterminate newborns when conquering the leadership of the clan.
It helps them not only to get faster access to a fertile female
but also to guarantee preserved bloodline within the clan. Such
information became quite relevant as added to the unequivocal
fact of child molesting and abusing cases being in great majority
perpetuated by stepfathers. That for scientists would be an unconscious
manifestation of a concealed animal instinct in preserving bloodline.
Another example would be that monogamic relationships are very
rare in the wild, characterizing it as the real deviant behavior.
It seems from an evolutionary standpoint as straightforward a
formula as functional. The strongest male will subjugate the other
rivals, seducing all in heat females available, thus genetic fingerprinting
more generations to come. The only difference accordingly to modern
standard lies in simply not looking for the strongest male solely,
but for replacing old-fashioned traits by enticingly modern euphemisms
such as "handsome", "well-succeeded", or "intelligent".
Scientists, too, have a word or two about
the urban legend of women who also cheat, however in a lesser
extent: Those so-called cheaters would be searching for another
dominant male that would better suit their genetic make of. As
unraveled by survey, herewith nearly every cheating female started
it when in her most fertile period.
But what is it all about? Women should
come to grips with the idea of men as biologically programmed
cheaters and, as themselves, bound to stay monogamic. Being faithful
while their male counterpart mess around for the sake of a biological
blue print? Not really. Other schools of thought envisioned cheating
patterns being determined by social factors, even though such
social factors entail roots in the biological patterns of behavior.
In that, there might be a combination of both social and biological
factors, so that men would've a tendency to cheating indeed, without
meaning that everyone would without exceptions. In short, it's
the behavioral attributes that really make the difference.
