A new unscientific survey from AshleyMadison.com – a dating site for married people – describes what type of husband and wife are most likely to cheat.
“…he’s likely in his 40s, been married for over 10 years and has two children over 10 years old.”
“Of the 11,453 fathers surveyed (all of whom have accounts on the website), the largest percentage of would-be cheaters work in the IT/Engineering field, a career that’s moved up on the list since placing fifth in 2010’s survey.…”
“What about cheating wives? In May, the site polled 2,865 of their married female members and found that the typical cheating married woman was in her 30s, married for five years or less and had a daughter under three years old. She is also likely to be a teacher, a stay-at-home mom or work in the medical industry, according to a representative from Ashleymadison.com”
What do think of their character sketches? It’s interesting that the man is more likely to be married longer and the woman a shorter time. It sounds like he gets bored and maybe she wasn’t committed to begin with. I wonder what having a daughter has to do with it? What impact do you think the profession has on their likelihood to cheat?
