Is There a Cheating Gene?

Do you think that there's such thing as the "Cheating Gene" for girls and guys. Or is it just an excuse to justify their infidelity?
If there is a cheating gene, then that would explain lots of things. People say animals always cheat and we are animals so its on our nature to cheat, right?

Researchers announced men are more likely to be devoted and loyal husbands when they lack a particular variant of a gene that influences brain activity, the cheating gene -- the first time that science has shown a direct link between a man's genes and his aptitude for monogamy.

The finding is striking because it not only links the gene variant -- which is present in two of every five men -- with the risk of marital discord and divorce, but also appears to predict whether women involved with these men are likely to say their partners are emotionally close and available, or distant and disagreeable.

Men who can’t commit finally have found a scientific excuse for their behavior: it’s all in the genes, baby. It's not me, it's the cheating gene.

It must be easier for men without this gene variant to have successful relationships, some would argue.
