Married People, Why Did You Start Having An Affair?

Get it off your chest.

It's been said before, and it'll be said again: Marriage is hard. And sometimes, married people find themselves having affairs.

Well, if you are married (or ever have been) and you've had an affair, we want to know why.

Maybe you were extremely unsatisfied with your marital sex life, and instead of speaking to your spouse about how you were feeling, you secretly sought out sex from someone else.

Perhaps you started an affair as revenge for something your partner did that angered or hurt you.

Maybe you were the person who was cheated on, and found out about your husband's affair when you accidentally caught him and another woman at a fancy restaurant.

Or perhaps you were in a heterosexual marriage, realized you were gay, and fell in love with someone else.

Whatever the reason, we want to hear all the details. Use the comments below (or this Google Form if you want to be anonymous) to tell us why you or your partner started having an affair during your marriage. You could be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post!
