Cheating: Becoming the Social Norm?
Cheating has always been frowned upon and deemed unforgivable, but infidelity is still happening at an alarming rate.

Today, in a culture where temptations, scandals and affairs happen almost every day, long-lasting relationships seem far-fetched. From music lyrics, hit TV shows and movies, to the celebrities and governmental officials that publicly announce their affairs... all of this further legitimizes dishonest behavior.

We begin to question what defines a "normal" relationship? Given all we know, the concept (and act) of cheating could even be considered more socially acceptable.

It's a common misconception that men are the only ones who are cheating; but women are just as responsible. In a recent poll of both men and women from the National Science Foundation's General Social Survey, 19% of women admitted to having an affair, up 5% from 2010. 23% of men cheated on their significant other, up 5% since 2010.

Certified dating coach, author and radio show host, Tara Richter, discusses relationships and the root causes of cheating, if cheating is still taboo, and things for you to do if you are struggling in your relationship.
