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.
