Happy, therefore healthy

I remember reading a few years ago about a study that claimed that people in a happy, fulfilling relationship are also healthier. Well, the article claims that married couples would be happier and healthier, but I’d assume the same goes for couples that are together for a longer time even if they’re not married. Since many people in this day and age are in a very long term committed relationship even if they never make it official.

Well, who am I to argue with science?

Differences in cheating

Cheating in a relationship is always wrong, destructive and leaves scars.

Cheater may end up cheating because he/she isn’t feeling well in the relationship but doesn’t have the backbone to do something constructive about it and resorts to running away (emotionally) and cheats.

Or the reason for cheating could be a moment of opportunity that is taken advantage of (“S/he was just there, at work/school and we just hit it off”). Or, as in many cases, it’s something you do drunk: the drinking lowers the inhibitions and suddenly there’s just someone there that you accidentally slip into (hate when that happens!).
