An online survey conducted by a Finnish newspaper in 2001. First, a structured question was asked on whether it is acceptable to cheat on one's partner when in a relationship. Next, an open-ended question asked the respondents to give reasons for their response to the first question. Volunteer sample; young people were the most active in responding and 79% of the respondents were women. As the survey was freely available online, there was no possibility of controlling who responded.

The dataset is only available in Finnish.
