AbstractWhat does it mean to cheat within romantic relationships? Most people have unique perspectives on this interpersonal phenomenon, which have inevitably been influenced by their past experiences. This research paper begins with a literature review discussing possible relationships between individuals’ attitudes and behaviors as related to cheating. To address some of the possible beliefs and behaviors associated with cheating, this paper will also examine how personal characteristics, gender differences, and personal histories, among other variables, can relate to cheating through a data analysis of a short survey. Although findings are varied, this research aims to highlight interesting associations with cheating practices and mention important information that will be valuable in future research.
