BOSTON -- Love is an emotion, a decision and a state of insanity. Similarly, infidelity might be called love in disguise, a passionate madness. As Valentine's Day approaches, we will be lost in a swirl of hearts, flowers and romance. Millions of cards will be exchanged and it is estimated that up to 190 million roses will be purchased in the U.S.
Then we will see the spoiler, the Internet-fueled folly telling us that Valentine's Day is a time to stoop and snoop to catch a cheating spouse. Often citing wildly hyped-up numbers of supposedly unfaithful men, "mavens" simply ignore figures from nationally scientific surveys.
