Can we really stereotype cheating husbands according to their profession? Apparently, through this study, we can. A survey by AshleyMadison.com showed that married men in their 40s who have been married for over 10 years and have two kids over the age of 10 are likely to have affairs.
AshleyMadison.com is an online dating site for married people looking to have affairs. Of the 11,453 fathers they surveyed (all whom have accounts on the website), the largest percentage of male adulterers work in the IT/Engineering industry. Here's a full round-up of occupations that allegedly mold cheating husbands:
We're not saying it's uncommon for women to cheat either. In May, the site polled 2,865 of their married female members and found that the typical married woman who cheats is in her 30s, married for five years or less and had a daughter under the age of 3. Also, she's likely to be a teacher, stay-at-home mom or work in the medical industry.
If you or your husband are working in any of these industries, worry not. The survey doesn't poll women and men outside the site. And why would you be on the site anyway if you weren't looking to cheat on your spouse? Nevertheless, the surprising results are something to ponder upon.
