Christin you covered everything! From the society pressures to marry and be monogamous, "soul-mate" myth, and the fact that people cheat because they prefer it over going through a divorce! Cheaters also don't believe they will get caught!:)
Yoleen Lucas says
I suspect the reason why people cheat is because they don't want to go through a divorce. And yet they want to have whatever they feel is "missing" in their marriage.
Most cheaters are like liars and thieves; they don't expect to be caught!:)
It also depends on how the poll was taken. In Hollywood and Washington DC., it is rampant; in healthier communities, it is far less prevalent.
It also depends on what each individual considers cheating.
Some people don't call it cheating unless there is sexual intercourse. Others would consider it cheating if they caught them flirting, sexting, sending erotic emails, or kissing another

Good points. Oftentimes people do tend to slack off when it comes to "keeping the romance alive". Some may even believe commitment means you can "relax" and not put in the same effort because you know your mate won't go elsewhere.
Jade Monique Taylor says
Being "in love" does make one want to be in a monogamous relationship.
Cheating can fall short of sexual intercourse in the eyes of many folks. Secret lunches/dinners/dates, sexting photos, online chats, kissing, flirting and using sexual innuendo...etc Cheating is in the eye of the beholder!
You're probably right. There may be more people who have cheated and never been caught than there are those who were caught! Whenever someone is caught our natural inclination is to assume it's not their first time!:)
