Why do girls blame only guys for cheating?Watch
And I agree if a guy cheats then the girl who he cheats with is also in the wrong. Unless he lied and said he was single. Usually though if a guy decides he will cheat, it makes the girl think that he is either single or he obviously is basically breaking up with his ex already. I mean, I don't know why any girl would want to be that bit on the side. There are lot of foolish girls that fall for a guy who compliments them loads and puts his arm around her, gives her hugs ect. They could just fall for this guy in 1 evening and not even suspect that he doesn't actually like who she is, but is just trying to lead her on. Same with a girl leading on a guy, but the cocky confident guys are likely to not mind if they are being led on if it means they will get sex.

I agree that if a guy cheats on his girlfriend, that there's technically two people at fault, but a lot of the time the girl he's cheated with doesn't know what he's up to... Same if it's the other way around, seeing as girls cheat as well.
This goes both ways too - others often assign less personal accountability to females, so this bolsters their sense of being less accountable than males.
For many it's much easier to shift the blame and make excuses. He cheated because he's a pig, end of. She cheated because it's her boyfriend's fault, end of. Note the common target of blame is not the woman, in both instances.
Contemporary feminism often brings out the worst in women - it teaches them that they are always innocent victims deserving of empathy and respect, and there is always a viable excuse for their misconduct - and it's always the man who is to blame who is not deserving of empathy and respect, and there is never an excuse. Even when it's patently the woman's fault. Any other side - they don't want to hear it. Object, and "you just hate women".
Narcissistic females are vile.
Things from Huffington;
'At least 78 per cent of men think cheating is never okay when you're hitched, while 84 per cent of women share that sentiment.'
'25 per cent of husbands and 15 per cent of wives have had sex with someone else while married.'
'women are 40 per cent more likely to cheat today than they were 20 years ago.'
'Fifty-five per cent of the men in Neuman's study either lied when presented with evidence of their infidelity, or just didn't tell their wives it had happened.' (scary.)
It simply doesn't matter, though. Why does it have to be seen in terms of gender? Gender should be irrelevant. If someone cheats, they are to blame for their own actions. I don't think I know anyone who would say that a woman is not to blame for cheating.
Also, I recall something stupid a 'lad' housemate said in response to someone being cheated on in the Made in Chelsea show. 'How embarrassing for her.' It was all just shame on her - nothing to do with judging the man. It was what the man 'did', it was who he was, it was fine. The only response was how embarrassing it was to be cheated on. If it had been reversed, she would have been a whore or a slut, the partner would have been 'angry'.
Having said that, there's things a woman could do to make her man not want to cheat.
Also, men cheat as often as women do from what I've seen around me. They also tend to get caught easier .
If you're cheating with someone who is single and they KNOW you're in a relationship then they're also still to blame but not as much because they're not committed to anybody and they don't owe your partner as much (only human decency). If they don't know you're in a relationship, it's not their fault.
If you're cheating with someone who is also in a relationship then you're equally as bad as each other.
Same applies the other way around. If a girl cheats on her boyfriend, the guy she cheats with is not at fault. He is just trying to get laid.
