Betrayal Exposed: Insider Secrets Every Man Should Be Aware Of

You are a good husband, a good father, a good son, and a good provider...YOU are a good man

then, WHY?!?!

Why did she betray you? 

Unlocking the Truth: Unveiling the Reasons Behind Your Wife's Betrayal

Let's get right to it.  What are the secrets you need to know?  What causes a woman to betray her spouse? While there is a vast array of answers, below are 5 common reasons shared with me in my work as a Trusted Advisor for Betrayal that you should be aware of.

1.Wanting to Leave a Relationship: Some women find it easier to cheat, forcing their current partner to end the relationship, rather than ending it more directly or assertively.  Other women know they want to leave, but they are not willing to do so until they’ve got another relationship lined up.

2.Low Self-Esteem:Women with low self-esteem, depression, unresolved childhood trauma, and other similar issues may seek validation through romantic and sexual activity. If someone else gives them the attention they seek, they feel worthwhile, desirable, wanted, needed, and lovable.

3.Loneliness and Neglect:Sometimes women feel more like a babysitter, maid, mother, hired help, or financial provider than a wife or girlfriend. They may use sex or an emotional affair outside the relationship as a way to fill the emotional void.

4.Lack of Female Social Support: A big part of healthy womanhood involves supportive female friendships and a sense of female community. Some women, especially those who experienced maternal abuse or neglect, undervalue this while concurrently overvaluing the attention of men. This can lead to infidelity.

5.Unrealistic Expectations: Some women expect their partner to meet all their needs and desires (even when they rarely share what those needs and desires actually are). When their partner inevitably fails them, these women will sometimes turn to someone else and tell them exactly what they want.

There are many more reasons, however, these are the most common in my work.  While it is devastating to think of all the reasons why this happened to you and the blame and shame you will consciously or unconsciously put on yourself...the fact of the matter is that she chose to betray you rather than reach for you to share her feelings.

Did Your Partner Betray You? | Recovering From Betrayal Part 2 Episode 303, June 2, 2023

Today is part 2 of Recovering From Betrayal, focusing on a man betrayed by his wife. See part 1.

My returning guest, Vanessa Cardenas, is your trusted advisor for Betrayal and Transformation. Vanessa is a highly experienced C-Suite Executive, Mentor, Coach, and Speaker with a degree in Industrial Psychology. She is also the founder and CEO of Understanding Ear, LLC, where she empowers individuals and groups to heal from betrayal, amplify their authenticity, and find love and happiness on their terms.

Vanessa shares how she went from supporting women to serving more and more men. We explore the pain, secrecy, and shame men experience after discovering their spouse’s cheating. Vanessa also explores why men and women have affairs and the most common question men have when they find out they’ve been betrayed.

While women often want to tell the world when they’ve been cheated on, that is not the typical response for men. What is so crucial for a man who has been betrayed is to forgive himself.

The core message is to be willing to have difficult conversations before betrayal to avoid needing them after.
