    If you think everyone cheats regardless put that thought to the side for one moment.

    I came up with a theory a while back and was curious what people on here would make of it.

    If men and women are designed to find a mate and impregnate their partner/be impregnated by their partner then surely something must trigger in are mind when we keep having sex with our partners and pregnancy never occurs.

    as much as we prefer to avoid pregnancy so we can have casual sex. i wonder if it puts the caveman/women part of our brain off our partner as seeing them as unfit to breed with.

    so while we want to be with our partners because we care about them maybe mother nature is urging us to try a plan b on the side?

    what you guys think?

    Doubt it. A more convincing idea is that contraception makes cheating easier to get away with. But I'd still be sceptical about how much that influences someone.

    I understand your point. But, personally, I do not think so. It is a safety procedure to stop pregnancy, perhaps the couple do not want children for certain reasons. Using contraception does not make one more inclined to cheat, it is normally used to stop pregnancy, whether that be casual sex or a martial marriage.

    In addition, it also stops sexual transmitted diseases.

    Your point is a misnomer. Not for what you rationalize, but the vehicle of which you rationalize it through.

    It may lead to more of a correlation, between those who use contraception and cheating, but it's not causal.
