Fact #1: Most men are still in love with their wives when they cheat.
Men who cheat haven't fallen out of love; they've become unsatisfied with the current state of it.
Research assessing judgments of the behaviors that constitute infidelity is lacking.
The three studies reported here advanced the literature by developing and validating the Definitions of Infidelity Questionnaire (DIQ), a comprehensive measure examining infidelity judgments.
So infidelity could happen to a small sliver or the majority of people — it's hard to say at this point.
Not to mention, most studies are done on heterosexual couples, so there's a big subset of the population that's not even being included in those estimates.
Women with higher education were approximately three times more likely to engage in online sexual EDI.
Although men and women are converging in terms of overall EDI, men still report higher engagement in physical/sexual extradyadic behaviors, and the correlates of sexual and emotional EDI vary according to gender.
Cheating also encompasses a spectrum of behaviors, and every couple has different definitions for what cheating really entails.
