1) “It didn’t mean anything to me”. Maybe not, but it means something to me. It means you didn’t care enough about our relationship to consider how much this would hurt me, or if you did consider my feelings you chose to ignore them.
2) “It just happened”. No. It doesn’t just happen. It’s not like a car accident. There is ALWAYS a moment where you make the decision to cross that forbidden line.
3) “I was drunk”. Notice how being drunk is never used as an excuse for doing anything else? Ever heard someone say “I only fired you because I was drunk”? No? That’s because nobody ever gets that drunk.
4) “You weren’t around.” What are you, an animal unable to control your urges? What if you get the urge to urinate, do you just stop and do it anywhere?
5)”I’m addicted to sex.” Well, I’m addicted to being treated properly. See ya.
6)”It’s your fault”. Yeah, it’s not you. It’s me. I’m just not into cheating jerks. Sorry.

“I didn’t mean to hurt you.” Then why did you do it? I don’t mean to murder anyone, that’s why I don’t.

“I don’t love you / am not attracted to you anymore.” Then break it off FIRST so it’s NOT cheating.

You make an excellent point that can be applied to SO many other issues in life, not just cheating. What each of those quotations actually represents is a person’s “REASON,” (i.e. what he or she has “reasoned” in his or her own mind.) However, NONE of them is an excuse.

“I feel trapped in this relationship” Hm. If you feel so trapped, why didn’t you break up with me instead of stringing me along?
^ Excuse my ex used after I walked in on him with another girl. Who had my same name.

“You weren’t giving me enough attention/sex.”
Well, I can see how you only had the one option, then.
“It only happened one time.”
Oh, well it’s ok then. Everyone gets one freebie.

“You were pregnant and never felt like having sex”
^^^ I got that gem from my daughter’s father. Pretty clear why we split up.

My Fiance hasn’t done this to me, but it happened in the past with another man:
“It had already happened once, so it just made sense to keep going. I already knew I had ruined us.”
Oh fucking thanks!
“It was an accident.”
Ohh, so you slipped and fell into her vagina?
“I was lonely.”
So was I all those nights you left me home alone.
“I just wasn’t ready to break up.”
ETA: This is the WORST one-
“I think I’m a sex addict.”
No, you’re just a man slut.

“She just kept throwing herself at me.” Ah, and you finally felt you figured the best way to catch her and make her stop was with your pants down.
