I stayed in two relationships with cheaters. I will tell you first hand.
The first one was because I thought he could change and I didn't want to be the only one in my friend circle to be single. I was desperate for a relationship and settled for an unhealthy one. I ended up moving on when I met someone else. I only dated this other guy for a week or so (dumped me because I would not "put out") but he helped me move on.
The second one was similar reasoning, I didn't want to be alone. This was when my anxiety and panic attacks started and when I agreed to be in a relationship with him, I regretted it for months. I tricked myself into being "committed" to the relationship and I was very unhappy 80% of the time. He ended up cheating on me and I stayed, again, because I was scared to be alone.

The reasons will vary widely, sometimes the partners will lack choices. For instance, in the case of couples who have children, they may be forced to stay together for the sake of the children.
For some, they are bound by the vows they made "Till death do as part". This can sometimes be very misleading to couples. They end up coping with harsh situations just because of the vows.
But for others, it is just love and the hope that their partner will soon change for the better. Which sometimes is not the case. Since the trust is already lost.
