Why Do Husbands Risk Having An Affair And Then Beg Their Wives Not To Leave Them?
"I have always told my husband that I would never, ever tolerate cheating. He seemed to understand this and emphatically said that he would never do that. I believed him. My husband is a man of high integrity. He doesn't make a habit of lying and being deceitful. He has been a good husband. But he cheated on me with a coworker that I actually know. He knew full well that if I found out, I would probably take our children and move. My husband was very careless as if he wanted to get caught. But when I do confront him about it, he freaks out. He chases me around the house sobbing and saying that he can not handle it if leave him and take the kids. He had to be aware of the risks. I am sick that he did this. Why would an otherwise reasonable person risk everything to have an affair? He actually claims that he didn't even care all that much about her. He insists she means about next to nothing to him. If this is actually true, why would he risk all of this to cheat with her? I simply don't understand."
