Cheating always hurts one's sentiment and feelings. But the act of cheating is never done automatically. A new study says the nature of cheating is influenced by the gene DRD4 that plays an important role.

For all the ones who cheat - tell the truth that way you don't have to remember what you said. make an effort to change for the good.
For the ones who were cheated – you have 2 choices,
1. Get the person who cheated you out of your life
2. Start building again from scratch…
For no excuse can cure a broken heart except brave the winds for nothing remains the same for ever even cold hearts can change..….
Thanks Anna..

So now the cheaters have an excuse -- sure genes play a big role in who we are and how we act, but we can't be total robots. We can and do reprogram ourselves every day.

I do not think it is so much a gene as growing up with a cheater.. If you smoke your children are more likely to smoke..if you drink your children are more likely to drink..if your a cheater your children...

Excuses...there are no excuses.. a liar is a liar and a cheater is a cheater.. thats just how it is..

EXUSES ... GET A MORAL GRIP PEOPLE ...
IF YOU WANT TO "GET MARRIED & COMMIT"
THEN THAT MEANS ... "COMMIT" IN EACH
AND EVERY SENCE OF THE WORD ... COMMON ...
GROW UP AND BE RESPONSIBLE AND REALIZE
THAT PEOPLE HAVE FEELINGS AND IT'S NOT
ALL ABOUT YOU !!! CONSIDER YOUR SPOUSE
AFTER ALL YOU DID AGREE TO COMMIT TO
EACH OTHER. IF YOU KNOW YOU HAVE A
TENDENCY TO STRAY ... BE RESPONSIBLE
AND DON'T MARRY IN THE FIRST PLACE ...
THAT'S JUST COMMON SRNCE.

I suspect you could "find" a gene for thievery, or a gene for murder. Funny you don't hear anyone fostering these inclinations as an "excuse".

Here we go again - Lets line this up with the GAY gene.. So everything people do wrong is linked to a gene of some sort ? don't make me laff.

Honor, decency, consideration, integrity. Where are the genes for these traits?

Thanks Thomas... I suspect that there are some genetic traits that make it easier for some people to be honorable but ultimately, it is our own decisions that make us who we are. That doesn't mean that genetics doesn't play a large role... it just means that it is definitely NOT the deciding factor.

Jeannette, I imagine one set of traits are as elusive as the other. Actually, I was being a tad facetious with that last post. Sorry to have not warned the people. Long week and all that :o)
