    It's human nature to want variety.
    Monogamy is lifestyle (choice) not a DNA code.
    It is a learned lifestyle along with various other things that fall under society's ideas of morality. It's human nature to want (your) way.
    The word (cheating) means to "break the rules".
    One of the roles of religion and government was to establish guidelines/rules for society. Generally speaking most laws don't come into existence until the group feels things have gotten out of hand.
    People who are truly "in love" are  more likely to be faithful because they don't want to risk doing anything that could cause their mate to leave them. Those who aren't "in love" (attempt) to practice "self-discipline". For them monogamy is like being on a very strict diet.
    People cheat on diets all the time!
    There is a big difference between someone (loving you) and being "in love" with you. The first one means you're not 'the one".

    everyone cheat either through exams, relationship, job or family matters. It is like a scorpion wanting to hit the flesh of a rabbit. Sorry dashingscorpio, wasn't refering to you, I meant the real scorpion.

    It's human nature to be self-concerned.

    We need to convert all selfish desires into altruistic desires. When we do this, cheating will cease.

    Not all people cheat, but we're seeing epidemic increases in cheating, because the fast-food culture is comfortable with easy, instant gratification.
