    If you cheat on your partner, is it only because they have given you a reason to do so?

    Are you saying that cheating on someone is due to a fault of the person you are cheating on? Well, depending on the society you live in, and the viewpoint on monogamous or polygamous relationships, I doubt it is of any fault of theirs. Depending on your morals, it is your conscious decision to cheat on someone.

    As I've learned throughout my life, taking responsibility comes hard for people (I used to blame my parents for my problems after they divorced and instead of going forward, I used to wallow in self pity). However, in this case, if you cheat on your partner, I think it is your mistake. If you have a problem with your partner, bring it up with them. Transparency, bluntness/being straightforward may hurt, but it lessens the chance of betrayal and emotional distress. Think about the repercussions, then act accordingly.

    People cheat because they have a problem with themselves and instead of communicating with their partner they have decided to  get a quick fix. No one gives you a reason that is a just a famous and over used excuse.

    I'd say if you cheat on your partner it is not a reflection your partners deficiencies in your relationship however it is your own weakness. There is no reason anyone should cheat on their partner. It is a reflection of the cheaters self esteem and morality choices. If your partner cheats on you, you either work things out or leave them and move on. If you decide to cheat on your partner because they cheated on you than things weren’t worked out it the first place an you should have left them when your relationship was falling apart.

    No you shouldn't even think like that! First if you going to cheat on someone you better be damn ready to accept all the pain and misery that comes with it. People cheat because their are selfish. I realize that's why I did it in the past and I paid for it. There are reasons to break up, reasons to move on,reasons to call it quits, but there isn't to CHEAT.

    Cheating your partner only comes into existence when you lose trust on your love and your capability on being terusted. If your partner does  not trust you or  has given you a reason to cheat ,it does not mean you do the same, rather I believe you should  prove your love  to the person   and  devotedly  fulfill your duties and responsibilities in love that your partner becomes compelled  to change his or her views   towards you.

    Whatever your partner does is irrelevant, you are responsible for your own actions, no one gets into your head and twiddles knobs about to make you behave in a certain way.

    No. Some people will cheat merely because they think they can do it and get away with it (what there partner doesn't know can't hurt them attitude)... It's a poor excuse for someone to say they cheat because their partner gives them a reason to do it - If they're not happy with their partner better to leave than to cheat!

    It can also be because of the natural flow of sex drive performed secretly due to the lack of a communication forum in the relationship to bring up these issues

    You cheat because you've got an itch you can't scratch with your partner. It may be that they can't give you something you want, or perhaps you're just with the wrong person. But if you cheat you've got major issues, and you probably ought to think about finishing it, or at least have the courage to say what it is that attracted you to the other person.
