IMO, a single person who sleeps with a married person, and he/she knows that person is married, is part of adultery, too. They're a cheater, too, in my mind.

I never thought of it that way but I think you are right.

I know it doesn't fit the classic definition of a cheater, but to be a part of the whole thing, I don't think they're innocent.

Absolutely. They are just as responsible.

Those statistics might be close to accurate for certain segments of our society but have their polar opposition in other segments.

Infidelity at some point and form in a lifespan does account for a fairly high percentage of people.

Men who pay prostitutes for some form of sex as a lifestyle are probably not a large representation.

It would be hilarious if one of those men went for a happy ending massage to find his wife working there.

I agree. But prostitutes must have a reasonable number of "customers" or there would not be so many in business.

I suspect that many men have learned NOT to talk about something they don't want discovered.

I believe the 20% figure for men who are monogamous is probably pretty accurate.

But just being realistic here, do any of us really expect our beloved family members (our grandfathers, our fathers, our uncles, etc.) to actually TELL us that they managed to get themselves some 'action' when they went to Chicago on business last year or that 3 weeks ago, after having a few drinks one night, the opportunity fell in their laps so they ran with it? Of course they're not going to admit that and they'll take it to the grave with them.

For that matter, what HUSBAND is just going to tell his wife that? Very, very, very, very FEW.

Most cheaters are of the mind, "what they DON'T know won't hurt them."

My observations are that men on business trips are not going to become cheaters solely because they are traveling. They'll be cheaters in their home town, too. If they are monogamous, they'll stay monogamous on trips.

But if we presume your assertion that 80% of men are cheaters, and that much cheating happens on business trips, who are those men cheating with? The overall female infidelity rate would have to be similar to the male infidelity rate. Generally there are more men traveling for business than women, so it would mean that a higher percentage of traveling women are cheating than of traveling men.

I think 80% is too high.
