    There is no benefit - only guilt and regret

      I believe there are some cheaters who feel "justified" and lack guilt or remorse.  When these types of cheaters are "caught" they feel a sense of relief. Men rarely file for divorce when physical/emotional/ego needs go unmet. They cheat instead.

    There is nothing to gain from cheating. It costs more than it's worth in the end.

    A person who is habitual of cheating others perhaps would feel benefited as there will be no limit of his insanity.  A common person will never seen benefited of cheating others and  rather would always be reeling under guilt.

    People who can cheat on their partner and still lie in bed with them are psychologically unstable. Even when the other partner gives reason for flight, one should fly away, not cheat. The person truly cheated is the one doing the cheating. The other person keeps his/her integrity and perhaps alimony payments. I hope you're asking for the sake of asking to generate views and not that you realy believe there may be some type of benefit.

    A cheater seeks to (hold onto what is good) in her/his primary relationship while addressing their "other needs" on the side. Clearly the upside is (getting everything you want/need). The downside is the risk of losing one's primary relationship if caught.
    It's been reported that in the U.S. women file for 66% or 2/3rds of all divorces. This would indicate that an unhappily married woman is more likely to end a marriage while an (unhappily married man is more likely to to cheat). In fact the friends of mistresses often warn them; "The husband never leaves his wife."
    Cheating is a cowardly act because the person is unwilling to end a relationship prior to pursuing another one. They don't want to give up their (known present) for an (unknown future). For many people it's like holding onto one job while looking for another. It takes courage to break free from a relationship without having someone "waiting in the wings."
