Men Who are Most Likely to Cheat

It’s not what it looks like!

This morning, I was passed a link to a Huffington Post article: The Type of Man Most Likely to Cheat. Two surveys from, a website that caters to married men and women looking to have an affair, studied the type of men and women who are most likely to cheat. The results for men revealed:

He’s likely in his 40s, been married for over 10 years and has two children over 10 years old.

Of the 11,453 fathers surveyed (all of whom have accounts on the website), the largest percentage of would-be cheaters work in the IT/Engineering field.

Here’s the full round-up of occupations that harbor the most cheating husbands:

IT/Engineer (10.6%)
Financial Industry (8.2%)
Education (6.5%)
Doctors (4.6%)
Lawyers (3.8%)

Survey results for women showed:

The typical cheating married woman was in her 30s, married for five years or less and had a daughter under three years old. She is also likely to be a teacher, a stay-at-home mom or work in the medical industry.

Interestingly enough, while studies have shown that women cheat less often – 19 percent compared to 23 percent for men – when women do cheat, they cheat earlier and more often than men. To be precise, women who cheat have 2.3 adulterous encounters compared to men’s 1.8. Furthermore, women are more likely to fall in love outside of the marriage during an affair. I guess the moral of the story is if your husband is an engineer over 40 or your wife is a stay-at-home mom over 30, you should definitely install a key-tracker on their computer and a GPS tracking App on their phone, immediately!
