The act of cheating is nearly as old as the institution of marriage. The sad reality is that both men and women cheat on their significant others for a variety of reasons. One new trend that experts are looking toward is the increase in infidelity in married couples over the age of 50.

A recent article investigated this topic and theorized that men and women are often unfaithful in order to fill a recent void in their lives. The death of a parent, children going off to college, or a change in employment are just some examples.

Esther Perel, author of Mating in Captivity summarizes these changes as the quintessential mid-life crisis. Women in particular often feel as though they have lost a part of themselves and that this can be found via an affair. Middle aged couples are often faced with burdens at work and home. To remedy these issues that might lead to wandering eyes, Perel recommends making your significant other the “new person” you are seeking.
