7 cheating stats that will blow your mind

Read this article in All Women Stalk

6. WOMEN DO IT TOO…

No, this isn’t a stat about the ‘cheating gene,’ or whether having parents who cheat affects your chances. It’s far grosser than that! A huge 17% of respondents admitted to cheating on their partner with their brother or sister-in-law. Yep, family. Why? For most, it seems that it’s just much more convenient – and a lot less likely to be suspicious.

Men do stay in the lead in the ‘most likely to cheat’ scales, with a whopping 57% admitting to cheating in one or more relationships throughout their lives. However, women weren’t that far behind. 54% of women have had an affair, and 23% had cheated on more than one partner. It seems we don’t quite deserve our innocent explanation.

2. IT’S NOT PHYSICAL…

Men do stay in the lead in the ‘most likely to cheat’ scales, with a whopping 57% admitting to cheating in one or more relationships throughout their lives. However, women weren’t that far behind. 54% of women have had an affair, and 23% had cheated on more than one partner.

5. KEEP IT IN THE FAMILY…

7. NOBODY COMES CLEAN…

How long do you think the average affair lasts? Most people claimed one night, with a few guessing a few weeks, or even a month or so. It’s clear that the average person thinks that affairs burn out quickly! According to the research, though, most ‘flings’ actually last much longer. The average is two years, with some affairs going on for over a decade.

3. IT’S BUSINESS…

————————-

It seems business trips might deserve their shady reputations. When quizzed about where their affairs started, or how cheats found time to have an affair without their other half knowing, business trips were a common answer. 35% of cheaters admitted to starting an affair whilst on a business trip – and most of them claimed it wouldn’t have happened without the trip. Whether it’s the free hotel room or all that booze at tea, it seems the trips might be for pleasure, too…

1. MARRIED MEN CHEAT MORE…

When it comes to cheating in a relationship, just as many women as men admitted to doing the deed. When it comes to married people, though, men are well in the lead. 22% of married men admitted to cheating at least once during their marriage, compared to just 14% of married women. That’s an 8% difference. This is one of those mind-blowing cheating stats that really baffles!

4. IT’S NOT QUICK…

I can’t decide if this is one of the most or least surprising cheating stats, so I’ll leave it up to you. When it comes to being found out, most cheaters won’t admit to any more than their other half can prove. Even when confronted with evidence, almost all said that they’d lie, and 98% would minimize what had been discovered. It fits the classic cheating script – lie, minimize, deny, blame – but it’s a shocking thing to admit to!

Cheating doesn’t have to be physical. While most people think that affairs are all about the steamy stuff, the cheats themselves have drastically different views. 41% of cheats admitted to a type of cheating that wasn’t physical – mainly in the form of emotional affairs. Non-physical cheating is a lot more common in married couples, too. Experts claim it’s because it’s a lot easier to hide an emotional connection to someone else than a physical one, especially when it comes to feeling guilty or worried.
