ALMOST HALF of the British population say they have cheated on their partner, a new study has revealed.

A massive 47 per cent of respondents involved in a MSN's recent survey admitted that they were unfaithful, while 63 per cent said they had been cheated on.

"Human beings seem to be programmed to crave new things - new flavours in food, new music, new clothes - which is why making a relationship work, can be difficult," sex expert and author Siski Green, said about the startling findings.

Of the 47 per cent of respondents who admitted to cheating, 25 per cent blamed their transgressions on being drunk and not in control of their actions, while 20 per cent cited revenge as their primary motivation to get back on a cheating partner.

The survey also showed that 42 per cent of those surveyed said they had taken back a cheating partner and some 30 per cent confessed they would forgive their partner for having a one night stand.

"Cheating on a partner is like cheating on a diet - you know it's bad, you even know that you'll probably pay the price for it, but in moments of weakness, desire for someone new or a big slice of chocolate cake, your desire to be 'good' is overcome."

"Whether or not cheating is a dumpable offense is up to the individual," Green added.
