In regards to a similar question, it kind of begged me to ask. Why do you think people cheat on others and why would they in the first place?

I'll attempt to answer this through the use of analogy.
Let's say you are in the market for a car. And let's say the car dealers are in the market for money. They are willing to give you a car, in exchange for your money, and you are willing to give them your money in exchange for a car.
So you go to the car dealer and start looking at different cars. You first look at yourself and ask yourself some very important questions:
- How much CAN I afford?
- How much am I willing to pay?
(those two questions do not have the same answer)
The Ferrari car dealer approaches you.
Dealer: You look like a wealthy guy. Someone as professional and successful as you shouldn't be driving in anything less than an Ferrari.
You: Maybe, but why would you say that? What does a Ferrari have to offer me that other cars can't?
Dealer: Well, every car can take you from point A to B, but when you get there with a Ferrari, it's such a gorgeous car, and others know how much it costs, that your status will go up, you'll feel better about yourself, and so on.
You: I'm hearing what you're saying, and that stuff is nice, but not "necessary". So what price are we talking about?
Dealer: $300,000. We both know you can afford that.
You: I can, but that's more than I'm willing to pay. All that extra stuff is just not that important to me to justify that price for me, so you can keep it.
The Toyota dealer approaches you. Although they're nice cars, dependable, etc. You're not exactly too crazy about paying $40,000 for a Toyota; especially since for roughly the same price, you can get yourself a BMW, which looks and drives great and has everything you're looking for in a car.
You put the money down, you sign the paperwork, congrats! Now the car is yours!
The question: Why would you drive an other car instead of your own?
Case I: Every weekend you like to go fishing. You take care of your car and keep it in mint condition. When you go to turn it on, the alarm goes off! "I have a headache! I'm not in the mood! Not tonight honey!" Okay okay okay! Sheesh! Not this weekend you think. You go back inside and watch T.V. Next weekend, the same thing happens! And you can't keep a guy away from his fishing. So you either rent a taxi cab, or you get an other car to get you to where you want to go.
Case II: After driving your BMW for a while, you start to look at other men and their other cars and feel they are happier than you. You start to wonder if you would be better off with a Benz, or Jaguar. Even though you never buy those cars, that doesn't stop you from going to some dealers and test-driving one; maybe more than just once.
Case III: After driving your BMW for a while, you love it. No matter how old it gets, this is your baby; you're emotionally bonded & close to this car. But you're a complex character. There is more than one side to you. You want an other car on the side that makes you feel different from how you feel everyday. Something more sporty perhaps; so you get a second.0
