"It was never inside" : A phenomenological interview study on men's definition and view of relationships and infidelity (English)
Abstract [en]

This essay discusses the subject of men’s perspective on love relationships, boundaries within them and infidelity. It uses a phenomenological approach and is based on qualitative interviews with five men. They were asked about their definition of and attitude towards relationships and infidelity. The aim of this study is to investigate men's experiences and views of relationships and infidelity and how they describe the two concepts. One aspect is to study how men's views on relationships and unbelief are related to social beliefs about masculinity. The results are interpreted in light of theories related to sociology of emotions and masculinity. It shows that teamwork, communication and creating their own rules within the relationship are key aspects of a working relationship. Infidelity is a phenomenon of many different dimensions and divided into physical or emotional as well as the underlying intentions. This essay wishes to contribute greater insight into how stereotypes affect the individual and therefore society as a whole.
