Cheating women 'on the increase'Posted on: July 3, 2013 11:04:57
The number of women who become involved in illicit affairs has increased considerably in recent years, thanks in large part to financial independence and the emergence of social media.
This is according to the National Opinion Research Center's General Social Survey, which found the percentage of American wives who are unfaithful to their spouses has risen by 40 per cent in the last two decades - with 14.7 per cent of ladies now cheating on their partner.
Researchers from the AUM Center for Demographic Research told Bloomberg that although men are still more likely to stray away from home, the number of males doing so had plateaued to 21 per cent.
A narrowing gap between men and women who cheat has come about as a result of more females having less money to lose in the case of a divorce, as well as the ease in which they can send saucy messages and hook up with strangers through social media.
Pepper Schwartz, a sociologist from the University of Washington, said women can afford the potential consequences of an affair, thanks to their higher incomes and increasing job prospects.
The expert added: "They have more economic independence and may meet a better class of mate."
With one in four men defending their decision to cheat by claiming they are involved in an unhappy marriage, researchers noted an increasing number of women are likely to use the same excuse.
This evidence was backed up by several divorce lawyers, who reported a rise in cases brought about as a result of unfaithful wives in recent years.
Analysts, who carried out the study over four decades, said cultural changes and a differing attitude regarding women's involvement in sex outside marriage are among the main reasons for the new behaviour.
