What does seem clear is that the sexes are closing the infidelity gap. Those that presume that men cheat at much higher rate are incorrect. Women lag men by about 15 to 20% at best.
On a personal level, if you are seeing distinct factors in your long term relationships, then you need to take a hard look at the common denominator ... you.
Exactly. I hope it is more of a selection problem than a "driving them to cheat" deal.I think it is the former, as , Like I said, both wives had been involved with multiple married men when they were single. I was an idiot to have overlooked that. And,one cheated on her subsequnt husband.
In the dating deal, I noticed that the woemn seemed to make a major distinction between having been an OW and having cheated on a spouse or boyfriend.
Now, withthe wisodom of hindsight, I am of the opinion that it makes little difference, as both reflect on integrity and the perso's view n the sanctity of marriage.
