When infidelity strikes a marriage, it breaks hearts. But a new study has found that most of the divorced guys don't regret cheating.
In a survey, 77 percent told Men's Health magazine that they didn't regret cheating, and 81 percent preferred their new sex lives.
The lack of regret suggests that the cheating wasn't what really ended their relationships with their ex-wives," said Men's Health editor David Zinczenko.
"Infidelity is more of a symptom of larger issues. For that reason, when the marriage ends, there's some relief on the part of the guy. When infidelity strikes a marriage, but the couple [nevertheless] stays together and works out their issues, that's when remorse sets in, 'Oh, I could have solved this problem in a different way'," the New York Post quoted him as saying.
47 percent of the 275 surveyed said their No. 1 reason for straying was that they no longer felt that their better halves even found them attractive blaming the woman for cheating.
Other reasons included boredom (41 percent); a need to escape (38 percent); and the other woman was just "too hot" to resist (17 percent).
