    The article sort of implies that alcohol and drugs are frequently mixed in adultery and are the reason why cheating is more risky than been in an open relationship.

    Imo, when you cheat you are doing a pre-meditated act. I can't buy the theory that the majority of cheating results from impaired judgement while been under the influence.

    Is this really that surprising?

    While I have been pretty open about the fact that an open relationship isn't for me...I can at least respect that there is a level of honesty and trust in them that both partners are probably likely to respect their partner enough to play safe with the "other" people that they play with - because (from my understanding, at least) people in open relationships always establish ground rules and stuff like that to ensure that both people are being cautious and ensuring these things don't happen. Cheaters, on the other hand - clearly don't give a fuck at all.

    people who don't acknowledge what they are doing are not generally inclined to plan for the logistics of what they are doing..,

    Hmmm.....guys in open relationships cheat as well. Some break the rules of safer sex. I've watched it happen with some couples I've known, and the results were just as disastrous as cheating in monogamy.
