2. Well, according to AsapScience, cheating is actually in our genes, and it has to do with our dopamine receptors (aka "the happy hormone"). Fifty percent of people with the long allele variant of the dopamine receptor have been unfaithful to their partner, while only 22% of people with the short allele variant have strayed. Long allele people are also more likely to give into temptations like drinking, drugs, and gambling. Do you find this believable?

Absolutely!
