Many people choose to play a role that was never meant to be played, a role that ultimately plays the person. The role that these people play is a role that demotes them from being a special man/woman to a special man/woman. There are various reasons people choose to play these roles, never fully understanding how these roles ultimately play a negative part of their lives. People have justified these roles as being necessary for their survival and enjoyment. These roles, however; are deadly and frustrating to all parties involved. People have also justified cheating as a physical mating between to consensual adults.  The secrecy, newness and danger of an affair can be highly addictive. Cheating rarely begins as a physical relationship but more as an emotional relationship. In the end, more people want to be in the place of the main love interest of another.

Married men sometimes cheat because they feel that having an affair will prevent them from breaking up their family unit, without hurting their wives because "what they don't know, won't hurt them." That way the man is able to have the stability of his marriage, along with the excitement of the affair. In other words, he is able to have his cake and eat it too. Some men feel like they have earned the right to have an affair, others rationalize it and still others don't seem to care about the consequences. Whatever the reason, none are acceptable ones when a partner is left in the dark and being deceived.

According to an adultery poll of over 300 women, over 48% of women having affairs with committed men have asked them to leave their partner. Unfortunately, men rarely leave their wives for a mistress and even if they do, they are highly likely to cheat on their mistress repeating their adulterous patterns.
