5. An escape


We all have ups and downs in our relationships and it's all too easy to let feelings of doubt creep in when things aren't going too well. Unsurprisingly this is one of the prime examples of times where men tend to stray. 

Helen says: "For unhappy couples, an affair is a cowardly way of escaping them. By directing their romantic attention on someone else a cheating partner thinks he or she can forget the problems in your own relationship."


More often than not couples tend to resign from their relationships rather than putting the work in to fix them. 

"Address the problems in your marriage or relationship. If it’s worth saving get professional counselling and have some serious discussions," explains Helen, "If not, do the honourable thing and set your partner free. It always seems scarier than it actually is to venture into singledom again. But it’s liberating when you free yourself from an unsatisfying partnership."
