The recent hack of Ashley Madison has sparked a debate about why we cheat. We ask ourselves, why do so many people cheat on their spouses? What kinds of people would have an Ashley Madison account? Why do we even need a site designated for cheating if you can browse Tinder? Well, I only have an answer for two of those questions. I can’t say that I know why people would choose Ashley Madison over browsing Tinder,  but I have a pretty good idea why we cheat.

Our fascination with finding the perfect someone has caused us to settle on a partner that is good enough. Within a few years, we get bored, and we cheat. Although several articles promote cheating as a healthy way to save relationships, the fact is that we won’t cheat if we don’t settle.  However, if we took the time to be single and live our lives, we will be brought to our soulmate. In turn, we can have that fairy tale ending that we all desire, but no longer believe exists.

Everybody Cheats is honest, funny, and pinpoints the real issues we have when it comes to romantic relationships. It’s a non-fiction work that has more points supported by South Park quotes as opposed to loads of statistics.
