Umm…no. I think people look to their own personal experience to give blanket statements sometimes.

Statistically, most people don’t cheat, actually. It just seems common because it is drama-filled TV fodder.

Hmm, I also whole heartedly disagree with “everyone cheats.”

I’m not quite sure why it’s so pervasive in the media. I’m really not sure. I know cheating has been around since humans have, but why it’s more socially acceptable to talk about now is beyond me. I don’t know if it’s just more common or less stigmatized. I think it may have something to do with the lackadaisical approach people have towards relationships in general now.

I have never cheated.  It’s pervasive because the actors or the people on TV that you watch live in a different world than us.  In Hollywood, cheating is rampant.  Marriages seldom last a year.  That cast member is only seeing it from what he has experienced, not what the rest of the world has.

@cbgg: Was it Real World?

And um yea, everyone does not cheat. I have never cheated and I know for a fact that FI has never either. Can you imagine what a f’ed up world this would be if everyone cheated? People are so stupid.

Of course not everyone cheats – that is too broad of a blanket statement. Do “a lot” of people cheat, I can see that.

I cheated on someone when I was 15 years old and a crazy teen- since then I have grown up alot and well never cheated ever. I dont think everyone cheats, I think the whole myth that humans and animals can never be monogamous (which is untrue, many species of birds are in fact one lifetime partners when they mate) kind of feeds the fodder of these kind of generalizations. Its completely untrue of course, and reduces humans down to our lowest decible in order to justify infidelty.

I probably know more people that have cheated before, than people who have not. I know alot of different kinds of people, from different walks of life. Everyone makes mistakes, and perhaps, cheating is a common mistake among people. I really do not think everyone cheats though, thats a ridiculous generalization.

lol I watched that episode last night with FI and he actually got so mad at that statement that he made me change the channel.

But I definitely think it’s wrong. Some people cheat, some don’t and it also depends on what’s going on in the relationship, and in the lives of the people in that relationship. I know that in highschool a lot of people cheated, but I would say that number of people still cheating has gone wayy down now. So maybe you could say, a lot of people will cheat at one point in their lives, but that doesn’t mean they will do it later in life or in their marriages.

Either way, Adam is crazy and not someone to take advice from lol.
