A new study has revealed exactly when women are most likely to cheat on their partners – and its not good news if you are married. The research shows between six and 10 years into a marriage is when females are more inclined to be unfaithful.
It comes after the study, published in the Journal of Sex Research, looked at 423 people who were in long-term relationships. And it found that women who were in the early stages of marriage, or have been wed for 10 years or more, were more likely to stay faithful.
But those women in between were more likely to stray, due to the pressures of raising children and facing middle age with the same partner.
However, for men the result was different as it showed those married for 11 or more years were the most likely to play away. And researchers put this down to the fact that this is the time men might focus on what they haven’t achieved in life and the evolutionary desire to produce more offspring.
