Another Interesing Figure: The Ages Men And Women Are Likely To Cheat

 > -

Cheating, though it's not something very pleasant, is a very common situation in our society. Do you know how frightening the statistics are in recent studies on the subject? You may think that there's no way your partner would cheat on you but numbers say the opposite. Let's see what the research tells us about cheating among married couples.

Cheating in a marriage is much more common than you’d think.

According to research, during marriage 60 percent of men and 45 percent of women will cheat on their spouse at some point

Not all cheating is a love affair.

Men are 7 percent more likely to have an affair than women, according to a study by the University of New Hampshire.

The research claims men and women have two very different ways of working out if an affair is worth their time.

Apparently, women assess how much of a good father their partner already is to their child(ren) and how much ‘education’ and ‘financial stability’ they bring to a relationship before they choose to cheat.

According to the research, though, men don’t seem to think about these things quite so much.

The age when men and women are prone to cheating is quite interesting...

The older you get, the more likely you are to want to cheat, with 55 being the peak ‘cheating’ age for men and 45 for women.

After these ages, the chances and perhaps the desire to cheat is diminished significantly for both sexes.

Perhaps people tackle these disconcerting statistics, by embarking on open relationships and cheating ‘honestly’ on their partners.

Several studies published show some very interesting results from people who are in an open relationship.

The research in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy showed some very interesting results, including the fact that one-in-five Americans have engaged in ‘non-monogamous relationships.’

Other data that the research gives us is about the happiness of those couples.

Another study claimed ‘older adults in open relationships reported being happier, healthier and more sexually active than the general population of similar age and relationship status.’
