Dr. Drew On Call

Driven by current events, "Dr. Drew" on HLN focuses on the human - and human behavior - at the center of the story.

Do women make men cheat?

NEED TO KNOW
  • 'If [women] are ... untrusting, they create a situation where the guy wants to go outside the relationship,' author says
  • 'The only thing that is to blame for a man cheating is his ego and his zipper,' relationship expert responds

On Wednesday night, HLN’s Dr. Drew and his guests discussed a matter that has affected so many relationships -- cheating.

Steve Santagati, author of “The Manual: A True Bad Boy Explains How Men Think, Date, and Mate - and What Women Can Do to Come Out on Top,” says women can make men cheat.

“Women do something very dangerous to a guy,” he stated. “If they are nagging and untrusting, they create a situation where the guy wants to go outside the relationship because he doesn't feel close to her, for starters.”

He added, “The woman [also] makes it very provocative by making it so taboo and naughty, by bothering him of everything, by accusing him of doing something that he's probably not doing anyway -- she begins to build a wall and then he wants to be on the other side of that wall because it's a lot more fun.”

Relationship coach Laura Baron quickly responded, “Obviously, the only thing that is to blame for a man cheating is his ego and his zipper. His wife has absolutely nothing to do with this.”

The two go on to a heated debate about what pushes a couple into divorce. Watch the segment in its entirety in the video player above.

Dr. Drew airs Monday through Thursday on HLN at 9 p.m. ET.  Follow the show on Facebook and Twitter @DrDrewHLN.
