Is micro-cheating really a thing?


A few days ago, I was listening to my favorite radio station when they brought the micro-cheating topic. Before that moment, micro-cheating was something I never thought about. So, gaping and confused, I started doing my research.

As our culture evolves (or retrogress in this case), people tend to downplay the importance of some acts in order to make them feel less harmful. If a thing has little importance, it should have little or no consequences.

While statistics say 90% of Americans consider cheating immoral, a huge 30% to 40% have cheated their partners. This teaches us that, despite considering infidelity immoral, they still cheat. Only 3% believe it is not wrong at all to engage in extramarital relationships.
