Are people who date or sleep with married people more likely to cheat when they get into a relationship?
My thoughts, yes, they are. It's makes no difference to them if they are the cheater or the other woman/man.

I don't know.
On one hand, logic follows that if they're willing to be the third party, then they don't have a problem with cheating.
But on the other hand, I've seen situations like this, and most often the cheater has worked on the third person to such an extent that they feel that the cheating is somehow justified. Their relationship is horrible, their partner treats them like sh*t, never wants to have sex, maybe they're "seperated" or "getting divorced" - the cheater often lies through his/her teeth to convince the third person that the relationship is all but finished - and that's rarely ever the case.
So honestly, I think someone can be the third party and still think cheating is wrong, but they can also be "convinced" that it's not really cheating, because the relationship is done for anyway.1
