Types of infidelity

We begin by defining what infidelity is; According to the Real Academia Española the word infidelity comes from the Latin infidelĭtas, which means lack of fidelity.

Differences between men and women

Evolutionary theories developed by David Buss and his colleagues argue that men are more concerned about sexual infidelity than women, while women are more affected by the possibility of being cheated emotionally by their partners. To support these claims, evolutionary psychologists relied on the difference between men and women, the amount of energy to be invested, and the ability to transmit genes during reproduction. While men produce a high amount of sperm, women have only one chance to pass on their genes, and as for energy inversion, what a man takes a night of sex, for a woman represents 9 months of investment. For this reason, men would be more likely to seek the largest number of sexual encounters that would allow them to transmit their genes, while women would seek a small number of potential partners, privileging quality rather than quantity. On the other hand, the woman would always have the certainty that the son is his, while the men would not have that de facto certainty, so they would be forced to watch over their partner and keep away potential competitors to be sure that the Breeding is his, hence he was so afraid of sexual infidelity. In the case of women, the opposite would occur, since they would seek for the man to commit to resources for the survival of the children, and the existence of another competitor with children could deprive his offspring of possibilities, reason why they developed an alarm before Emotional infidelity, since only a man in love would stay long enough to provide resources to a child.
