Women betrayed by partners end up in stronger relationships
When a woman’s partner cheats on her, the betrayal and grief she experiences afterwards can be difficult to get over. But researchers have found that women who lose their unfaithful man to another women may actually be winners in the long run. They say the experience she gains from the infidelity of their partner helps them make better mate choices in the future.
And perhaps most gratifyingly of all, their partner’s new woman is actually the ultimate loser. Dr Craig Morris, an evolutionary biologist at Binghamton University in New York, who led the study, said: ‘If we have evolved to seek out and maintain relationships, then it seems logical that there would be evolved mechanisms and responses to relationship termination.
