“I don’t agree with that theory at all,” Orbuch tells PEOPLE. “In my research — and I’ve been looking at relationships and following them over time with 370 couples for 30 years, funded by the National Institutes of Health — the main reason men have affairs is that they’re not being noticed. They desire affirmation, to be validated, to be seen, and not be taken for granted. So that has nothing to do with being pregnant.”

She says that in actuality, based on evolution, having a pregnant partner should draw a man closer.

However, men in positions of power — from athletes to musicians to actors to politicians — are more likely to cheat in general.

“There are several reasons why powerful men like Tristan Thompson cheat. First, it’s the notion of invulnerability — they really don’t think that they’ll get caught, and they assume that even if they do get caught that they won’t get in trouble because they have the resources or the people who will cover it up,” Orbuch says. “Powerful men think that they’re superman, that they’re invulnerable.”

  What Actually Qualifies as Cheating? Experts Weigh in on the Tricky Situations When it comes to the concept of cheating on your SO, the lines can be a bit blurred. It's tough to say what really qualifies as "cheating." It can take on many forms, both physical and emotional, and certain, flirty actions might be seen differently depending on the person you're in a relationship with. Your best bet is to first define what cheating means: talk with your partner and set the rules on boundaries.

But Orbuch says that it all comes back to a need for validation, even for powerful men.

“In my long-term study, the number one predictor of unhappiness in relationships, and the number one predictor of divorce reported by men, is that they need to be validated and affirmed often by their partners,” she says. “Tristan gets that from his fans, but that means he really expects it from his partner. I’m not saying Khloé isn’t giving it, but that is the number one predictor of affairs.”
