With Valentine’s Day around the corner, Morton East’s journalists set out to find how many students at Morton have been cheated on and how many students are behind the heartbreaks.

There are multiple reasons why partners tend to cheat, whether it is right or wrong. Some of the reasons are lack of love, feeling neglected by your partner, or living by the motto “YOLO” so you want to experience new people’s company. As for cheater’s victims, IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT! You are not responsible for the actions of others. In a random survey of 100 Morton East students, 36 students out of 100 reported said they have been cheated on and 18 out of 100 students reported that they have cheated on their partner.

“I cheated on my ex with his brother,” said an anonymous senior.

Although harsh, another anonymous cheater explained their reason.

“(Unfortunately,) one person always takes the relationship more seriously than the other person,” said an anonymous staff member.

Lastly, an anonymous source justified themselves by explaining what happened in their last “relationship”.

“We weren’t serious. We went on a few dates, but I told her I was not looking for something serious. But I could see why her feelings were hurt,” said an anonymous senior.
