Why Married Men Flirt

Flirting is often viewed as a way to meet potential mates. An overly flirtatious husband can cause several types of marriage problems. Often, the wife feels hurt, rejected, and alone.

The most common reasons why married men flirt:

  • he is having a midlife crisis
  • he is unhappy with wife
  • he is not sexually attracted to his wife
  • he likes the attention other women give him
  • he is bored with married life
  • he is insecure about self
  • it makes him feel better about himself
  • he needs to validate his attractiveness and sexuality
  • he thinks flirting is harmless
  • he is looking to have an affair
  • it is exciting
  • to meet emotional needs such as feeling liked, being popular, or being thought of as funny, entertaining, attractive, or sexy
  • as a passive-aggressive way of getting even with the wife. He may have felt rejected sexually and emotionally, so the flirting can be a message to the partner to shape up or risk losing the marriage
  • an attempt to get the wife's attention

What to do if your husband flirts

If your husband flirts, take a little time to yourself and think about how you feel when he flirts. Once you are familiar with your feelings talk with your husband about them. Talk with him in a non-confrontational way. Be careful not to threaten him. Let him know exactly how you feel and would it would take for you to feel better. Your husband might not realize he flirts. He also might not realize how it makes you feel. If your husband doesn't want to talk to you about it or says that you are over-reacting, try talking to him again when he is more receptive. For instance, he might be less willing to listen to you if he is drunk or has just come home after a stressful day at work. He may be more open to listen and talk about it on his day off from work or on a Saturday afternoon.
