Infidelity has long been cited as one of the most common reasons for divorce. According to InfidelityFacts.com, 53 percent of marriages end in divorce, and in 41 percent of all marriages one or both spouses admitted to infidelity (either physical or emotional). Just slightly more men than women admit to being unfaithful (57 percent vs. 54 percent), according to InfidelityFacts.com. The idea that men cheat more often than women is a commonly accepted fact, and, according to a recent study conducted by Texas A&M University and reported upon by the Huffington Post, there’s an actual physiological reason for this inkling. “It’s males’ stronger sexual impulses—and not their lack of self-control—that could be to blame” when it comes to their increased rates of cheating and infidelity.  Men Cheat More Than Women IMAGE

Natasha Tidwell, one of the main researchers and authors of the study, said in a press release that “when men reflected on their past sexual behavior, they reported experiencing relatively stronger impulse and acting on those impulses than women did.” Researchers found that there wasn’t an obvious difference between men and women when it came to self-control. In one of the studies that contributed to the report, “researchers used a rapid-response test on 326 men and 274 women in which participants were shown photos of potential romantic partners and asked whether or no they’d like to enter into a romantic relationship with that person.” Men were more likely to choose people that were deemed attractive, or desirable, despite not necessarily being a good fit.

And yet infidelity may not be the most common reason for divorce, at least at not any more. According to a different Huffington Post article, a U.K. study recently found that “modern couples are much more likely to cite unreasonable behavior as the cause of their splits.” In the 1970s, nearly 30 percent of divorces were blamed on cheating, compared to only 15 percent today.

Cheating Leads to Divorce IMAGEIt’s not easy to determine just how many Americans are being unfaithful in a marriage, primarily due to the necessary secrecy that an affair requires. Yet according to menstuff.org, an impressive 22 percent of married men “have strayed at least once during their married lives,” compared with 14 percent of women. Younger people are more likely to cheat, and younger married women more likely to cheat than young married men. The vast majority of partners did not know about the cheating—which is why, most likely, many relationships in which either one or both partners were cheating ended in divorce. According to the Associated Press and reported by menstuff.org, 17 percent of divorces in the U.S. are caused by infidelity.

And yet what does cheating, or infidelity, really mean? Does looking at another person and desiring him or her count as cheating? Do moves actually have to be made? University of Michigan Research Assistant Professor Daniel Kruger set out to determine just that, and earlier this year published a cheating survey, in which he looked at how people define infidelity, according to the Huffington Post. Just over 450 college students were surveyed, and were asked to “look at 27 different behaviors and assign them a number on a scale of 0 to 100 based on the extent to which they believed the action would be considered cheating in a long-term relationship,” according to the Huffington Post.

The survey found that women rated ten items higher than did men, “and men’s ratings were higher on a minor financial support item.” The survey also found, rather predictably, that women considered emotional interaction with a person of the opposite sex cheating more often than men did—men, for the most part, only considered sexual interaction as being unfaithful.
