Why Do We Swear?

We’re told since young, that there are certain words that should not be used. Swear words. Yet, we use it all the time, not only angrily to our biggest enemies, but also casually to acquaintances, our best friends and even to/with our significant other. 

But why exactly do we swear? And why do we love it so much?
