Some people just like feeling in control and feeling powerful. Cheating is like getting one over on the system and it is a cheap ego boost. The people who cheat in relationships are the same kind of people who would cheat in games or in other tasks; they want some prize more than they want a chance to get the prize fairly. Usually, these are people who feel that something is owed to them that they haven't gotten and this is their reward. It's childish and petty, but...most people are.
