In 2013 the results of the General Social Survey from the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago announced a series of shocking revelations about the reasons why men and women choose to have affairs, and their feelings concerning those reasons. So if you’ve ever wondered how anybody could possibly cheat on his or her spouse or lover, then we’ve got the dish. But be warned: some of these statistics will shock you.
First off, we should say that in the survey both sexes agreed that cheating while you’re married is bad. However, it seems that ever-so-slightly more women feel this way than men.

To be precise, the survey revealed that 84 percent of females felt adultery was wrong for married people, while the portion of males who concurred was just 78 percent. That’s not to say that women are any better than men, though.
