Infidelity in dating croatian dating website
The percentage of wives having affairs rose almost 40% during the last two decades to approximately 15% in 2010, while the number of men admitting affairs held constant at 21% (25).
Between 1991-2006, the most dramatic rise in infidelity has been in men ages 65-90 due to accessible treatment for ED (28).
It's part of life." Whether this is statistical commentary or an excuse for his actions, it does bring up an interesting question: How common Cheating might feel like it's everywhere, but experts have a hard time pinpointing exactly how many people cheat, because (duh) nobody wants to be honest and own up to the fact that they do it.
"The general belief is that if a person is lying to their partner, why wouldn't they also lie to a researcher?
Chlipala says that she thinks cheating can be contagious, and you're more likely to do it if people around you are.
(And for the record, open relationships, or sex outside of an otherwise monogamous relationship with the consent of both partners, is not cheating — by definition, cheating involves lying.) Chlipala suspects that the number of people who cheat might actually be growing because of these flimsy definitions.
" says Anita Chlipala, LMFT, a dating and relationships expert.
One expert we spoke to estimated that 25% of men and 14% of women cheat in a lifetime; another said they thought it was between 20-60% of couples in a lifetime.
So infidelity could happen to a small sliver or the majority of people — it's hard to say at this point.
Not to mention, most studies are done on heterosexual couples, so there's a big subset of the population that's not even being included in those estimates.
So, whether or not cheating is actually a "part of life" for everyone, it's pretty clear that the statistics aren't quite there to back up that claim.
