DrJays.com Debate: Why do people cheat?

On AskMen.com, they narrow the answer to this question down to two basic reasons: the physical sexual drive and the emotional need.
In your personal opinion and through your own experiences – why do you think people cheat on their significant others?
I’m sure we have all heard of gorgeous men and women being cheated on, such as the public figures below:
Diddy has admitted to cheating on Jennifer Lopez with ex-girlfriend Kim Porter
Billy Bob Thornton was said to have cheated on Angelina Jolie with their sex therapist
Former NY Giants’ Michael Strahan reportedly split from girlfriend Nicole, after he discovered she was having an affair
A lot of people are left scratching their heads as to why any sane man or woman would mess up their relationships with stars like these, to cheat with people who are often not even considered nearly as physically attractive.
These types of instances show that it obviously goes deeper than looks and perhaps even how satisfied one is sexually with their partner.
Is it because cheaters want variety? Is there something emotionally missing in their relationship?
We would love to hear your thoughts…and perhaps your own experiences if you don’t mind sharing!
