Just a question for the men

Hi there I would just like to know... Why do men come clean after an affair? what would be the reasons to tell his wife. If he is caught I would understand it a little bit but then he must be caught red handed. I have a colleague here at work who''s husband came clean and it is really hurting. Its most probably honesty from his part but this is unusual. Cheating people only come clean when they are forced? just wondering...

Difference is ... Did he come clean with the intention of saving his marriage? Or did he come clean with the intention of leaving his wife?

Some people come clean as a way to get out.

But then again, maybe there are some people who come clean because they cant live with themselves and a guilty conscience?
