Why do married men/women flirt?

I chose this topic upon request; and I find it quite interesting.

Not only married men flirt, married women are commonly doing it nowadays. I just don’t understand. Can flirting solve the marital problems or making them worst than ever? Or are they just doing it for fun? Do it for fun or whatever...just don't jeopardize your marriage..

Men with ego bigger than the Boeing 747 will never admit their mistakes, they will twist their words and makes it look as if it’s the wifey’s fault....Hello! (knock!knock!)...Admitting your mistakes, won’t kill (yeah, will only kill your ego, but that’s just about it!)...

Remember the song by Rihanna...”Take A Bow”? I like the verse:

Don’t tell me you’re sorry cause you’re not
And baby when I know you’re only sorry you got caught....

If you’re lucky, he’ll say “I’m sorry”..., but I think deep inside he’s just sorry that he just couldn’t continue flirting..! (correct me if I’m wrong)!!

Why Married Men Flirt

Flirting is a 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
