It's an age-old question: why do people cheat?

In the clip above, writer and all-around funny guy Steve Zaragoza wanders around New York City and asks random strangers, point-blank, why they think people stray.

"I think people are just unhappy and are too scared to say something and break up with someone before they move on," one person suggests.

"They're looking for something else -- they're missing something," says another.

Still, most said they believed it was possible to remain monogamous in a relationship.

"Love is not a feeling, it's a choice," one woman says. "It's not always going to feel good but you make that commitment because you'd rather spend your life with that person than without."

Well said, random lady on the street, well said.
