Why People Cheat: Readers Weigh In With Why They Think People Are Unfaithful

Why do people cheat?

Earlier this week, we published findings from the The Normal Bar, an extensive survey of the romantic relationships of more than 100,000 people. Thirty-three percent of men and 19 percent of women admitted to being unfaithful when they were polled. The survey pointed to some of the most common reasons people stray, from sexual boredom to diminishing communication with partners.

In the comment section, our readers offered their own reasons for why otherwise committed men and women stray in their marriages. Click through the slideshow below to read their explanations, then head to the comments and tell us why you think some people can't stay faithful.
