A husband’s wife is more likely to cheat on him, a new study has found, but the cheating behaviour of a woman’s husband may not be as clear cut.
The research, conducted by the University of Warwick, analysed nearly 8,000 marriages in Britain and found that more than a third of the spouses who had cheated on their husbands had cheated before the marriage.
The findings, published in the journal Psychology of Men and Masculinity, found that husbands who had engaged in casual sexual intercourse before the relationship were also more likely than their wives to engage in casual sex afterwards.
The study also found that the cheating behavior of women’s husbands was often hidden behind the guise of a “compromise” to avoid having to face their cheating spouse, as they did not expect their cheating partner to be able to “reinforce” their claims that they had been cheated on.
“When a spouse is unable to re-establish trust in the partner, their behaviour can seem to have been opportunistic rather than deliberate,” Dr. David Bowerman, the study’s lead author, said in a statement.
“However, the truth is that there are a variety of reasons why cheating may occur in this situation, including jealousy and fear of retribution.”
These behaviours may be driven by a desire to avoid confrontation, or even a desire for protection from their partner.
These behaviours are less likely to be conscious, as the partner is often unaware of the cheating and may not feel guilty.
“Researchers at Warwick found that men who cheated on his wife had more sex partners than their female counterparts, and also had more partners who had sex with them.
Women, on the other hand, who cheated were more likely “to have had sex multiple times before” having sex with their cheating partners, and to have sex with both partners at the same time.
Dr Bowermann added that the findings were important because it would allow more women to talk about their experiences of cheating and have a “more accurate picture of how many women have cheated”.”
It’s not easy to talk to a partner about it.””
But the way in which they do it and the ways in which we think about it can be.
It’s not easy to talk to a partner about it.”
The findings are based on a survey of 1,086 British men and women aged 18 and over.
It surveyed them about their own cheating and sexual experiences, as well as what the women they knew were doing to protect their partner from being cheated on by their spouse.
The survey found that 78 per cent of women who had been cheating on their partner reported that they did it to protect themselves from their cheating husband.
However, in the same study, 79 per cent women who reported cheating on a cheating spouse said they were “not particularly concerned” about it.
However in another survey, conducted in 2013, the survey found more women than men were concerned about cheating on the spouse.
The survey found 47 per cent men and 40 per cent ladies felt they were cheating on an intimate partner because they feared retaliation.
According to the study, there are “significant” differences in women’s perceptions of the importance of having sex in the bedroom and men’s perceptions, including their feelings of guilt about their behaviour.
“The main reason why women’s and men ‘guilt’ about cheating is because they’re worried about what might happen if their partner doesn’t come clean and stop cheating, which is something men do,” Dr Bowermans said.
“But they don’t realise that if they are not honest, they are going to end up with a much worse experience with their partner.”
Dr Bowersman said he was concerned that some women felt guilty about being “compromising” in a relationship, but that they also had a fear of being caught.
“Some women have been guilty of compromising before the sex and they’re afraid that they will be caught,” he added.
“We know that women are more likely when they cheat to have a partner who is not ‘cooperative’ and ‘open’.”
This may be because men fear they are being ‘coerced’ into having sex, or that they don`t want to hurt their partner, or because they are afraid of having to defend themselves.
“They may also fear that if a partner is caught cheating, it will hurt their reputation.”
