Who cheats more? New study makes shocking revelations
A new infidelity study has found that men cheat more than women do.
According to the study titled: “Infidelity Statistics & Trends 2021 – Who Cheats More?” men cheat more with around 25% of married men and 15% of married women admitting to sexual infidelity.
According to the report published by MysticMag on February 14, majority of Americans, who took part in the survey describe their ideal relationship as monogamous, with 74% believing that sex outside of marriage is always wrong.
However, the majority of Americans also think it is easier to cheat now than it was 20 years ago.
The report noted that although more men cheat overall, factors like age, education, political views, sexual preference, financial independence, and even race may influence how likely they are to stray.
MIDDLE-AGED PEOPLE CHEAT THE MOST
According to the report, men cheat more than women do at almost every age. The notable exception is married women aged 18-29. They are 1% more likely to cheat than men in this demographic.
More middle-aged people cheat overall, and men report the highest level of cheating in their 70s. Women report the highest rates of infidelity in their 60s, with 16% of 60- to 69-year-olds reporting to have had sex outside of marriage.
Interestingly, cheating is lowest among 18- to 29-year-olds at 11% overall. A recent YouGov poll also indicated that millennials are equally likely to want to be in a monogamous relationship and to think that the ideal relationship is non-monogamous (43% each).
