John Edwards’’ recent admission of infidelity, once again, puts the topic of cheating politicians in the news. Every time a politician cheats on his wife, the public wants to know why.
John Edwards is a man with a successful political career, who had an even more promising political career on the horizon. Why would a man in his position cheat on his wife?
We know love wasn't the reason, because Edwards himself stated that he did not love Rielle Hunter, the woman with whom he had the affair.
Could the appeal of having an extramarital affair be that strong?
Reasons Why Some Politicians Cheat
Why do politicians cheat? There are almost as many reasons as there are politicians out there cheating. High on the list are the reasons below.
A Sense of Entitlement
Many politicians feel they can do as they please because of who they are. They feel they are exempt from the rules that govern everyone else.
Edwards admitted that his newly achieved “ celebrity status” was a factor in the extramarital affair that he tried to conceal. Having an extramarital affair can feed the already inflated ego that many politicians have as a result of their status..
The Thrill of the Chase
Politicians are no different from other cheating men who enjoy the subterfuge, the lying, and the scheming associated with having an affair. Cheating provides the kind of adrenaline rush a man would get from participating in a high risk sport.
The Excitement of Doing Something Forbidden
Just like ordinary men, some cheating politicians engage in infidelity or extramarital affairs solely for the excitement of doing something that’s forbidden.
The Knowledge That He Can Get Away With It
One of the main reasons many politicians cheat on their wives and have extramarital affairs is because they are confident that they can get away with it. And countless numbers of them do. We only hear about the ones who get caught. Many politicians have had affairs that have never come to light.
