Who cheats more? The happy or the sad? Surprisingly, some studies say that relationship-happy women are just as likely to cheat as unhappy ones.
Who cheats more? The happy or the sad? Surprisingly, some studies say that relationship-happy women are just as likely to cheat as unhappy ones. And already having love in their life does little to change this when it happens.
When does straying happen?
According to a 2006 Hormones and Behavior study, women are most unfaithful during their most fertile period of their menstrual cycle, even if they're not in the market to make babies. And their targets tend to be financially able men or lads who are physically "hotter" and in better performance shape than their current mates.
In an Undercover Lovers (a UK-based extramarital dating site) survey, 2,000 men and 2,000 women spilled the beans that some 57% of female cheaters felt "love" for new lovers, whilst a staggering 83% of male cheaters said love was the last thing on their mind. Would women still stray if this glaring fact was pasted on the wall?
Unfortunately, happy marriages don't preclude the possibility of a heartbreak due to infidelity. Let's forget the obvious - abusive partners, feeling abandoned emotionally and physically (little or bad sex, no cuddling, little touching and your heavily moisturized hands remaining unheld), not having her existence remembered and celebrated. Here's why some women in "happy" relationships stray.
