Just curious. I think it's a cop out, but I also know some with this excuse every day!

No. They aren't. Cheating is a choice regardless of your scientific naughty bits.

Never heard that one, actually...men are no more wired to cheat than women....depends on the person, not the gender

No... There are good guys out there.... I had one of them... For 13 years.... Unfortunately his personality and some other things took away his mindset and he lost himself :-(

I don't think anyone's "wired" to cheat. Some people, men or women, have made cheating into a habit. Overall though its a self control issue I think.

I know more faithful men than women.... I need better friends!

Probably. I've seen a lot of studies that state the male of nearly every species is driven to mate with as many females as possible (sounds like college lol). But as humans we do have the ability to make choices. And therein lies the conundrum.

I wonder sometimes if the opposite sex is wired to make the other person feel the need cheat...lol

Basically we're animals. So men and women probably have a natural and biological wiring to do so. Most mammals aren't really "faithful" It's a choice.

It's a choice not enough people make.

You simply cannot though say it's only men.

This is dumb.
October 4, 2012 10:27 AM
No more than women are wired to nag.

All animals that have two sexes are 'wired' to cheat - females, who invest more heavily in each gamete, need to spread their risk of choosing a dud mate, and males, who have cheap and plentiful gametes, are driven to get them into as many females as possible.

So yes, men, being animals, are 'wired' to cheat, but so are females.

If you want to argue about how much control our social constructs as humans have over that wiring, that's a WHOLE different argument. Are we more that just our wiring? Most people think (and therefore act) so.

But at the pure 'wiring' level, speaking as basic biological drivers, that would be a yes.

No. My husband of 13 years has never given me a reason to suspect him of cheating, even when we've gone through rough spots in our marriage. I've asked him before if he ever considered cheating during those times. He tells me "no", and I believe him.

I, on the other hand, was tempted to cheat when I wasn't getting the attention I wanted from my hubby and another guy was paying me attention. (I didn't cheat. I talked to hubby about it instead.) We both learned from this experience and used it to strengthen our marriage.
