We see the stereotypes all over movies and TV story lines. An older man is caught cheating with a woman much younger, more fit, and prettier than his wife. We see women cheating on their overweight, boring husbands with young, attractive, spontaneous men and we see this so often in Hollywood that it’s become the “popular belief” when it comes to cheating. We hear the term “trading up” and it’s not uncommon to blame the cheated with letting their appearance slide and it’s cited as a reason their partner went looking elsewhere.
A new survey of 4,538 members of the infidelity site Victoria Milan show that these Hollywood stereotypes are not actually what’s going on in the majority of real-life infidelity cases.
Take a look at some of the surprising results of the survey when members were asked about their spouse and their mistress/lovers and why they looked outside the relationship in the first place.
