You hear all about cheating and it makes me wonder. I've cheated and been cheated on and I just feel people aren't made to be with just one person for life. (Please keep all Religious opinions to yourself)

I'm not religious, and I think people can be monogamous. Cheating is an act of being selfish and self centered. Strong disciplined people don't cheat.

And the question is what? To see if we agree or disagree with you? If you've been cheated on before then why would you do any cheating surely you didn't appreciate the feelings you had when it was done to you.

I'm simply asking if people agree with the fact that people aren't meant to be with only one person. Yes or no. It honestly wasn't the worst when I was cheated on because I didn't take it personal. It was sex

That's totally stupid sex is personal especially if they are with someone else. Some people are crazy! Yes some can choose to be with only one person in their life. Wondering when you cheated what was it? Just sex? Was it personal?

Monogamy promotes health and family stability. Cheating increases the risk for and heightens the spread of diseases and creates emotional turmoil for the adults involved, as well as the innocent children caught in the middle. Based on the likelihood that cheating is more harmful to health amd well-being and the family structure, I do think the human race was designed to be monogamous. I believe the high rate of cheating is more indicative of the lower moral compass and lower intelligence level than it is supporting evidence that we are made with instincts that are detrimental to our longevity as a species.

People can be faithful. I agree that cheating is a selfish act. I have cheated in past relationships. But since I've been married I love my wife very much and find it very easy to resist temptation. I've heard people say we are programmed not to be faithful. That is just some cop out to excuse them doing whatever they want.
yes

When you find the right person you don't even look any farther . Because if you find Mr. Right no one else will ever compare to them .

"I just feel people aren't made to be with just one person for life"

Ok, I'll speak with a little common sense. If catching std's doesn't bother you, catching bloomer crickets doesn't bother you, getting pregnant and taking care of a crying kid on Saturday night, or giving her three/forths of your paycheck till it's 18 doesn't bother you, then go ahead and spread it around like peanut butter.

I think it depends on the terms of the relationship and the parties involved. Cheating is the violation of a monogamous relationship and is wrong because it violates the premise of the relationship.
In open relationship its not cheating, because both parties have that understanding from the get go.
As far as disease and what not, cheating or multiple partners is no excuse for unsafe sex. Know who ya blow or whatever it is that yalls doin.

no,I don't think that people are made to be monogamous, especially men. sometimes you can just get lucky and make it work with someone forever, but that's really all that it is, luck. I'm married now, and we've been monogamous during our relationship, but he keeps me satisfied on all levels, and I have no reason to cheat, like I have in previous relationships.I cheated in the past and was cheated on. really, it was all just about sex or inflating my ego, and I'm sure sure it was the same for the boyfriends. I've even given my husband the green light to sleep with another girl if he ever so desires because I know that sometimes he might feel the need. being honest is better than going behind your partner's back.

Cheating is selfish? Claiming that a person can only sleep with you forever is selfish. As for STDs and babies, it's called a condom, try one sometime.

Animals usually have multiple "partners." It's the lower animal mentality of dogs and cats. Or in our case, chimps.
To be faithful to one person, raises the simple mentality of a chimp to a higher level.
