Modern life is a lot different from before. Studies have shown that more people cheat on their spouses. Along with this data is the separate finding that the rate of cheating among women has increased during the past 20 years, whereas the rate for men has remained constant. For a married couple, cheating is a constant danger and possibility.
Initially, there may be no proof. In which case, experienced infidelity investigations may be necessary to uncover the truth.
How Many are There
Research about fidelity have been published, but more studies are currently ongoing. In the United States, one study revealed that up to 20% of men and 13% of women admitted to having a sexual affair with another person. The above statistic does not show the complete picture.
For a long time, it has been supposed that men cheat more than women. However, when looking at the age groups, it shows that for those married people between 18 and 29, more women admitted to infidelity than men (11% to 10%). With older age groups, more men admit to cheating.
The numbers peak for women with the 60-69 age group, with 16% admitting to infidelity. The number tapers off from there as the older women are polled. For men, it peaks with the 70-79 age group at 26% and then tapers off for those in the 80+ age group.
The study on infidelity within age groups show that women are at par when it comes to being unfaithful. However, it would be interesting to note what they do afterward. There is a growing trend for couples to stay married even while they have affairs.
Infidelity is still a big thing and is still used as a ground for divorce. However, some Americans seem to think that it is better to stay married rather than divorce.
