FACTS ABOUT IN­FI­DELITY

Calgary Herald - Calgary Herald New Condos - - Weekend Life -

De­spite Prof. Eli Finkel’s find­ings on the ben­e­fits of adul­tery to a mar­riage, the jury — es­pe­cially those with a keen­ness for the sev­enth com­mand­ment — is still out. How­ever, what’s less open to de­bate are these U.S. stats about mar­i­tal in­fi­delity:

2 — years, aver­age length of an af­fair

41 — per­cent­age of mar­riages where one or both spouses ad­mit phys­i­cal or emo­tional in­fi­delity

22 — per­cent­age of mar­ried men who’ve cheated at least once

14 — per­cent­age of women who’ve cheated at least once

36 — per­cent­age of men and women who’ve ad­mit­ted to an af­fair with a co-worker

31 — per­cent­age of mar­riages that last af­ter an af­fair
