Why do women cheat?

I have been with my wife for 10 years, and looked after her financially all of that time so she didn't have to work, we have a nice home and four beautiful children, so I was devastated when I discovered that she was texting another man.

I feel so low and I can't think what I have done for her to treat me like this.

Why would she cheat on me? What have I done to her to be treated like this? I have never cheated on her and always treated her like a queen.

Should I tell her I know about these messages? Or should I ignore it and hope it fizzles out, as I couldn't bear my life without her.

How did you discover she was texting someone else? Were you looking through her phone? That means you don't trust her. What has occurred for you not to trust her? Confront her and have the problem out in the open. Irrespective of the result - you will have the issue dealt with. Either she feels unfulfilled and is seeking fulfillment elsewhere (you may be able to salvage things if you talk) or its un-salvageable (better to know and prepare yourself for it) ...my opinion for what it's worth.

You should definitely confront her about it and ask her those questions that you are asking yourself. Ask her and maybe you will find out things that you didn't know about her and what she is holding in and keeping from you. It might be something that changes the whole dynamic of the relationship and you two might come out of the situation better and save the relationship. If the answer is something where you guys can not salvage the relationship, then take the answer as it is and move on. It will be better for you and for her.
