Men have long-term affairs because they are looking for a deeper connection with someone other than their spouse. Often, the affair is an emotional one that provides them with attention and affection they may not be getting at home. The infidelity can also provide men with the opportunity to explore different sexual experiences in a less judgmental environment than what might exist within their marriage.

Do Long-Term Affairs Mean To Love?
Long-term affairs don’t always mean that a man doesn’t love his wife. The reasons why men have long-term affairs are complex and vary from person to person, but it is important for wives not to take the infidelity personally because it may be an indication of other problems in the marriage. Men who do commit long-term adultery usually feel bad about themselves and their actions, which often leads them into depression or alcoholism if they were already suffering either condition before they started up with someone on the side. This can then lead to more serious issues such as suicide attempts by these men feeling like there’s no escape from what they’ve done.
If you want your husband or partner back after he has had a long affair, you need to first understand why he had the affair in the first place. Understanding what led him into this type of behavior, whether it’s a deep-rooted psychological condition or just lack of attention and intimacy at home, can help you know how best to get your man back.
Some wives might think that by getting their husband drunk again they will be able to seduce them back into an intimate moment but this often leads to further rejection from men who are going through post-divorce trauma as well as feeling even more rejected for not being properly respected during his marriage when long term affairs were happening behind her back all along. These women need to look deeper than just trying alcohol and sex in order to heal themselves psychologically after such a traumatic event occurring which will not only help them heal but will also give their husbands back the ability to trust again.
How Long Do Extramarital Affairs Usually Last?
As with any kind of relationship, the length varies depending on many factors. Some extramarital affairs last for years and some only last a few months or weeks. It really does depend on how long each person is willing to put up with these kinds of relationships without getting too emotionally invested in them which will inevitably lead to their eventual demise.
Why Do Guys Have Extramarital Affairs?
Men need to look deeper than just trying alcohol and sex in order to heal themselves psychologically after such a traumatic event occurring which will not only help them heal but will also give their husbands back the ability to trust again.
Some people experience extramarital affairs as an escape from unhealthy relationships, or because they are unhappy with other aspects of their lives that do not include physical intimacy. Other men may have more sexual motivations for having these types of relationships outside of marriage like feeling a high at being able to get away with something without getting caught; exploring their own sexuality who are unable-to-find it within themselves due to religious upbringing; wanting attention and validation through infidelity, etc.
This type of behavior is harmful to the spouse, but often it will serve as a warning that marriage counseling should be sought. If this goes untreated and continues for an extended period of time, then many consequences can happen such as: marital infidelity; emotional abuse or neglect by one partner towards another (often factors which lead to divorce); sexual dysfunction in one or both partners due to repeated intimacy with someone outside the relationship without protection etc.
Many extramarital affairs are long-term relationships because they become entangled emotionally over time and so instead of ending them abruptly when they would otherwise have done, people continue on until something else happens – like getting caught out. In these cases, there’s usually no need for forgiveness between spouses because the affair was established with the full knowledge and consent of one or both partners.
But Why Do Men Have Long-Term Affairs?
Some experts believe it’s because they want to be reminded that a life without love is worth nothing, while others say that some people are just in love with being in love – meaning their relationship may not thrive but it still gives them what they need. And then there are those who think a man would rather endure an unsatisfactory marriage than go through the emotional upheaval of divorce. Some also claim he might hope his wife will catch him out so she can punish him for having an affair and stop treating him like her “boy”, as James Thurber famously put it.”
Do Cheaters Feel Guilt?
No one knows for certain why a person cheats. Experts believe it could be because they want to feel alive and have something different, or maybe they are in love with being in love – meaning their relationship may not thrive but it still gives them what they need.”
In some cases, cheating might happen to fulfill the emotional needs of an individual who would rather endure an unsatisfactory marriage than go through the emotional upheaval of divorce. Or someone might choose to cheat on his spouse so he can punish her for treating him like “her boy,” as James Thurber famously put it.”
