This link gives some interesting information on infidelity and unfaithfulness in a relationship.
It is estimated by some research that approximately 60% of all married individuals will engage in infidelity at some point during their marriage. And although this statistic comes from the United States, I don’t suspect it to be hugely different for us in Canada.
Research shows that 2 to 3% percent of all children are the product of infidelity.
This same sight also states that Men are more likely to cheat than woman. But it would seem that as women become more financially independent, women are starting to act more like men with respect to infidelity.
There also seems to be more options for this to occur. And also on many levels. Emotionally, psychically.
Many people find a more suitable mate after they are married.
In reading all this, there is a possibility that someone you have met or are meeting might have a history. No, it will not be the first thing you know. You probably never will know. But, people talk, particularly in the same social groups. This is how reputations are developed.
So, let’s say you are in a relationship or considering a relationship with someone. You have been made aware of a possibility of someone being unfaithful to their partner. Would you consider continuing this relationship?
