No one is entirely sure why serial cheaters do what they do. Some are physically incapable of monogamy, other cheaters are just so much better at sharing their time and affection than everyone else. Still others just love love too much. However, it's also possible that cheaters flit about just for the crazy stories.
Given all of the Reddit stories about outrageous cheaters, it's highly likely those who practice infidelity do so to make a splash. Why else would you buy Valentine's lingerie for your spouse and your person on the side from the same store?
From Redditor u/Mnbvcxzlkjhgg:
My sister works in a lingerie boutique and a man came in for Valentine's Day and bought two beautiful ensembles. He asked for them to be packed separately with two Valentines cards. One was for his wife and the other for his mistress.
At first, my sister thought he joked but the outfits were not the same size.

Someone I know is getting a divorce because her husband is having an affair with his much-younger cousin. Apparently the age thing isn't as big a deal (legally) in their location as the family thing, but the whole situation is all sorts of f*cked up.
From Redditor u/rabidjade:
I had a former coworker find out his wife was filming a lot of grown-up entertainment and being paid next to nothing after being married for a few years. He found out when he found one of her DVDs hidden in the house. He assumed it was a gift for his birthday in two weeks and watched it when she wasn't around.
When he confronted her, her only reply was she was doing it for him. He imploded after that and needed counseling for a few months after the divorce was finalized.
From Redditor u/is_not_chicago:
My girlfriend of five-and-a-half years cheated on me while I was asleep in the next room (in our bed). I found out the next day.
I remember her coming in to kiss me at some point in the night. I never had the stones to ask whether it was before or after.
