Writer's Block: Are women or men bigger cheats?

Do you think men or women are more likely to cheat if they know they won't get caught? Do you believe in marriage?
I think it depends on the situation. It can all vary on how much love is in the relationship and who is trying their hardest to hold onto it. On the other hand though if you know you're not going to get caught i think both sexes would be more inclined to stray. How much they love their partner might not have anything to do with it. I mean i love my partner as im sure most of you out there love yours but if a perfectly hot stranger came along would you always be able to turn them down. Again guilt would always factor in, would you be able to live with it? would you always be able to keep the secret?
The statistics when it comes to infedility are way higher than i ever would have thought. i think most people will commit some form of cheating at some point in their life, kissing, fooling around, not necessarily always sex. but generally i think you can assume that it will always eventually end up there if you carry on with contact.
Im in two minds about monogamy. Ive been in a relationship a long time and i am only young and while i love my partner i still get crushes on other guys and i have strayed in the past. i feel guilty about it at the time and then i get spurts of guilt here and there but on the whole it doesnt affect me as badly as it should. I believe him when he says he hasnt strayed but then i say the same thing, and granted he really doesnt seem like the kind of guy that would, but you never know i suppose.
Honestly i think women do cheat more, but only slightly, but we think about sex way less than men.
I do believe in marriage. And i know thats a bit hypocritical because marriage should be based on honesty. but my relationship with my partner works. Regardless of what ive done.

Think About It

I wrote this recently as a test to myself. When i write i use alot of dialog, in writing things are easier expressed with words than actions like in real life. So with this one i wanted to try and write something short with absolutely no dialog (ok there is one line! :-)) and sort of veer away from what i usually write. it came out rather easily, but the difficult part was trying to extend on the way something looked or the feel of something or an emotion in order to take up more space! either way,its short and it was a bit of an experiment for me. And i suppose at the end you'll see why its called 'Think About It.'
