Today, I’m going to talk about why some partners start arguments without any clear reason before cheating. This happens quite often in unhealthy relationships, and it makes you wonder why it occurs.

The first reason is often a search for justification. By initiating an argument and then seeing you respond to it, they can use it as a justification for their own guilt and actions. They may try to make you feel guilty for the argument they started, ultimately using it as a reason to go and cheat. It’s a way for them to validate their infidelity by blaming it on the argument they had with you.


Another reason behind this behavior can be seen as a form of distraction. Instead of addressing the actual issues within the relationship head-on, they choose to create an argument as a means of diverting attention. By focusing on the argument, they can avoid dealing with the underlying problems or conflicts. In some cases, they might seek distraction in another relationship or seek sympathy from someone else. Sharing the details of the argument with another person can elicit sympathy, making it easier for them to engage in cheating behaviors.

Regardless of their justifications, it’s important to reflect on how you are dealing with the situation. Are you willing to work on resolving the issues in your relationship, or are they beyond repair?


Are these ongoing problems causing you distress and making your life unbearable? In such cases, it may be necessary to consider leaving the relationship, as staying in an unhealthy dynamic can be detrimental to your well-being. Don’t allow yourself to be distracted or seek justifications when it’s clear that the relationship is not working.
