An article by Ayvaunn Penn at AllChristianNews.com talks about why preachers, and everyone else, might choose to sleep around. Of course, not every pastor is a cheater, but we know that there are quite a few cases where this is true. The researchers talk about the reasons that your spouse might step out, some of which are avoidable.
One of the things to keep in mind is that a good way to have a mate who is tempted to cheat is to ignore that person’s needs for emotional and other forms of attention. Not being responsive to the needs of your mate might tempt them to have their needs fulfilled elsewhere. The researchers also say that the creation of emotional distance can cause people to be unfaithful.
