    Infidelity Statistics

    In over 1/3 of marriages, one or both partners admit to cheating.
    22% of men say that they've cheated on their significant other.
    14% of women admit to cheating on their significant other.
    36% of men and women admit to having an affair with a coworker.
    17% of men and women admit to having an affair with a sister-in-law or brother-in-law.
    People who have cheated before are 350% more likely to cheat again.
    Affairs are most likely to occur two years into a marriage.
    35% of men and women admit to cheating while on a business trip.
    9% of men admit they might have an affair to get back at a spouse.
    14% of women admit they might have an affair to get back at a spouse.
    10% of affairs begin online.
    40% of the time online affairs turn into real life affairs.

    Who?

    A study from late 2016 suggests that men are somewhat more likely to cheat than women. According to the Associated Press and the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, 22% of men say that they've cheated on their significant other at least once during their marriage, and 14% of wives admit to straying.

    These statistics also suggests that people are most likely to have affairs with co-workers. As many as 36% of men and women say that they've had an affair with someone they work with. Somewhat surprisingly, 17% admit to having an affair with a sister-in-law or brother-in-law.

    Perhaps most telling is that the maxim “once a cheater, always a cheater” appears to be founded in fact. People who have cheated before are 350% more likely to cheat again than those that haven’t.

    I believe the statistics. There are lots of convenient marriages but not many happy marriages. Plus the sex tends to dwindle as time goes on, but that doesn't change the fact that humans are human. That sexual frustration has to find an outlet from time to time.

    I voted 11-30%....just based on a quick estimation of people i know.

    I am assuming the 36% having affairs with co-workers means 36% of the people who cheated. I have slept with a couple of co-workers...but everyone was single at the time.

    never cheated or will cheat on my wife of 22 years.

    One of the core problems with marriage is that people do it while they are really young and naive and they're totally unaware of the realities of what they are getting into until they have matured and wised up a few years or even a decade later down the line, but by then it's too late to back out when kids and a mortgage are involved.

    I know for me, the one thing I value now so much that I wasn't aware of when I was younger was my privacy when I'm home! I'm a 6'1 jock but I love my bathroom time to soak in epsom salt or to use it like a spa to rejuvenate myself, I love to sleep peacefully even at an odd hour of the day and I like to come and go as I please answering to nobody. Couldn't live like that if I was married.

    It doesn't help that older people don't tell young couples the truth about what they're about to get into even though their own married lives are miserable. Quite frankly there is a lot of money involved with marriage from parents wanting to increase their own wealth by handing off their daughter to a wealthy man to expensive wedding rings that need to be sold all the way to divorce court that is a billion dollar industry. The system is too big to fail.

    As far as the percentage of married men who have had affairs wouldn't it be the same percentage as married women because the two seem to find each other and men can't have affairs all by themselves....

    That being said, my mother use to work in a upscale hotel in the 1990s and she saw numerous people who she knew were married sneaking around meeting up routinely leaving used condoms and such in their wake..

    No. Less women could cheat with more men or men are involved with single women. Obviously.

    The problem is society telling ppl they need to get married to have kids. Then they get pressured. Then comes some miserable times....


    Want kids but can't commit to the egg/sperm doner.... then adopt. Plenty of orphans out there.

    one of my relatives said society makes it as though if you are not married by age 25-30 then you look unstable in the corporate world where image is everything.

    Kind of ridiculous if you ask me.

    The people in unhappy marriages, philandering, uncivilized divorces, etc are the ones that look unstable.

    If an employee has a wife, kids and a mortgage, he is probably considered less likely to leave, or be overly demanding.

    ^Oh lol maybe the term "unstable" was not defined that well. The way you put it makes sense. The way my family member explained it was single people have the image of partying, more likely to be hooking up with co-workers, more likely to engage in risky behavior that could mess up company image, etc. Or maybe this family member was just trying to convince me that being married is "better" than being single - in the eyes of others like your employers/partners/etc.

    But honestly I think a married person is just as capable of engaging in "risky" behavior as a single person. Some of these men ain't thinking about that wife, kids, mortgage when they are risking it all just to plow through Becky every other weekend and weekdays after work. First thing comes to mind was that top NFL coach who lost his million dollar job after he was caught on film getting high off coke and ranting about fucking his mistress.

    I personally don't gaf either way cause I don't think one is better than the other (just depends on one's life goals) and often times people will do what makes them happy regardless of how they come off looking to others.

    I think half the people who have affairs don't care how they look to the outside as long as they themselves are happy with what they are doing. Many of them don't even try to hide it, go out in public with their bf/gf, get divorced then magically pop up in a full blown relationship or remarried in less than 6 months.

    I am also curious.

    Of the men who have had affairs, About what percentage of wives know their husband is engaging in affair type behaviors?

    I would guess

    20% know
    60% are in blissful ignorance, they have an idea but don't want to know the truth
    20% really have no clue

    Remember Howard Marshall and Anna Nichole Smith. But I dont think Marshall was married when he took up with Smith, so it wasn't cheating.

    ^Of course! She was my fav - classic sugar baby of all time. I may be green but I believed she did really care about him maybe even love him especially since she realized that he was willing to enhance not just her but her son's wellbeing as well. Says a lot about a man willing to take care of some non-biological kids, in addition to their biological ones.

    Was he in a separation or totally divorced?

    Do affairs count if it's during a separation period?

    then comes families like mine which utterly destroy social concepts in the western world, given there are 4 of us, all working as one unit as opposed to one with 3 other attachments...one unit. so i wonder how things would change if they wanted to count relationships like that and by what one considers cheating... hell, that word alone can differ person to person.

    He was quite an interesting person it seems.

    Marshall married Eleanor Pierce in 1931 and divorced in 1961. They had two sons together: J. Howard Marshall III (born February 6, 1936) and E. Pierce Marshall (January 12, 1939 – June 20, 2006). His second marriage, to Bettye Bohannon, lasted from 1961 until her death in 1991. In 1994, at the age of 89, he married 24-year-old model Anna Nicole Smith, 62 years his junior. Their marriage lasted 14 months, until his death.

    Here is how he got started:

    Upon graduation, he served from 1931 to 1933 as an Assistant Dean at Yale Law School and instructed courses in business, finance and procedure.[3][4] At the same time, he was producing scholarship as a member of the influential legal realism school of thought, working with future Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas on an article entitled A Factual Study of Bankruptcy Administration and Some Suggestions, published in 1932.[5] However, his most influential works, done with Norman Meyers, were two articles entitled Legal Planning of Petroleum Production.[6] These pioneering studies offered an alternative to the then-prevailing practices of controlled production in the petroleum industry, which were leading to dramatic boom/bust cycles. They gained the interest of the government, especially since the legal minds behind the New Deal were staunch supporters of legal realism.

    In 1933, he left Yale to become the Assistant Solicitor at the Department of the Interior under Harold L. Ickes. During his first tour at Interior, he authored the Code of Fair Competition for the Petroleum Industry (1933), and the Connally Hot Oil Act of 1935 in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision to strike down the National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA). Specifically, it revived the portion of the original legislation that regulated the flow of oil between states. Ostensibly enacted to protect the industry from "contraband oil" in order to stabilize falling prices.
