Why do so many people seek permission on the advice lines to cheat?

I just finished reading another post to the advice lines by a guy asking permission to cheat, and with his sister-in-law at that. Can the people who post such questions (and yes, they are mostly men, but I have seen one or two that were posted by women) really be so misguided. Yes, I am a Christian and believe that adultery is a sin, but we all sin. While that may be part of why I am ranting on this subject, it really goes beyond a question of moral right and wrong. Cheating on one's spouse flies in the face of common sense. Now when I say cheating, I am referring to going behind your spouse's back to have sex with a third party, and am not referring to people who have open marriages or are into the swinging lifestyle (as in these latter instances the extramarital sex is with the full knowledge and consent of both spouses, and if it works for them, who am I to judge). Cheating is deception, a breach of trust and a sign of a complete lack of respect for one's spouse. While it may be possible to deceive one's spouse indefinitely, it is more probable that the Cheater will get caught and then there will be a price to pay. Cheating is a selfish indulgence which has adverse consequences for many others, as well as the Cheater. Fortunately, the vast majority of the responses posted to such questions advise the person that it is stupid to Cheat. Unfortunately, I am certain there will be at least one more such question posted before the week is out.
