There are many reasons why someone might stray from their intimate partner. Statics say that 30% of a couples deal with infidelity in their relationship. Affairs can occur in 'happy' relationships and in troubled relationships. Affairs can be result of personal dissatisfaction in a relationship and or dissatisfaction within your partner.
