WSJ - Jan 26 - People are more likely to cheat on a partner in the year before a milestone birthday, according to researchers who worked with Ashley Madison. This suggests that there is roughly a 10-year cycle for heightened risk of infidelity. Here are the risk categories. People who engage in infidelity typically fall into more than one.
- Gender - Men are more likely to cheat.
- Age - Not only 9-enders are at heightened risk of cheating. People 35 - 50 tend to be focused on careers and kids. So people younger or older have a greater chance of cheating.
- Opportunity - Researchers call this “environmental” risk. For example: traveling frequently without a spouse put people at a heightened risk for infidelity.
- Relationship Dissatisfaction
