Eye Spy Detective Agency has been in business for over 30 years. In that time, we’ve come to discover that one of the greatest challenges to a committed relationship is when one partner goes outside the marriage to look for a connection, either physical and emotional.

When people find out about infidelity, they often make all kinds of assumptions about how and why people have affairs. We live in a hush-hush culture — when it comes to infidelity, there’s a lot of BS out there — and most of what you think is true just isn’t. Here are the nine most common misconceptions about infidelity, and the real take on what you need to know.

Cheating Myths # 1: Once An Affair Is Out In The Open, A Couple Can Never Be Happy Again

No one’s talking about it, but affairs happen everyday. Couples can learn to successfully rebuild their relationships. Many relationships even develop a stronger bond once they’ve worked things through.

Once you have come to terms with the cheating, then the healing will begin. It starts with telling the truth and laying it all on the table.


Cheating Myths # 2: Infidelity Is Never About Sex; It’s About Other Marital Issues

Cheating does not always involve sex. Sometimes it’s about confiding in another person outside of the marriage. Some affairs are just about fulfilling an emotional need.

Cheating Myths # 3: Affairs Are All About Sexual Attraction

It’s true that the some affairs are only based on casual sex. Most affairs happen because of an emotional connection. That sense of emotional closeness often leads to sex.

Cheating Myths # 4:  Affairs Happen Because Of Problems In The Marriage

Every marriage has it’s problems. Affairs do not happen because of the problems. Affairs happen because couples do not know how to talk to each other and work out their issues. Having problems in your marriage does not justify cheating.

Cheating Myths # 5: Once A Cheater, Always A Cheater

Yes, there are some people that have a cheating addiction. That doesn’t mean that every person that is out there will cheat again.  Many affairs are a one time deal.  The cheater will have to reveal the WHOLE truth in order for the healing to begin and the cheating to end.

Cheating Myths # 6: After An Affair, Kiss Your Marriage Goodbye

Hold on! Slow your roll. Over 50% of marriages survive infidelity. When couples are willing to work together, they can rebuild trust. It takes work, a lot of it. The most common reasons for marriage dissolution, at 53 to 55%, is “growing apart” and not being able to talk to each other.

Cheating Myths # 7: Affairs Happen With People Much Younger Or More Attractive

OK, sometimes the 60-something corporate CEO might seek out younger playmates, but, typically, lovers are no younger, richer or more attractive than spouses — they’re just someone new.

Cheating Myths # 8: Affairs Happen Because Your Lover Is On The Prowl

No — most of time, an affair happens to people who aren’t looking for it. This is particularly true in cases in which a partner has only cheated with one person.

Affairs often begin as feeling really comfortable with someone, like the person in the cubicle next to you at work. That coziness is followed by sharing intimate secrets, which can then shift into an emotional connection that’s consummated with a full-blown tryst.
