What Percentage of Wives Confess an Affair?

We've seen many stories in the news about faous men forced to confess an affair. Or a truckload of them, in Tiger's case. But how often to wives confess an affair?

According to an in-depth poll by MSNBC and iVillage, 15 percent of wives willingly confess when they have an affair. This makes women a bit more honest then men, who only had 11 percent acknowledging they' admit an affair. What does this tell us about the difference between the two sexes? I'm not even going to venture a guess. Besides, I don't cheat, so I don't know anything about this whole arena. leave me out of this! For much more info on how the genders break down in terms of loyalty and honesty, see below:

Women cheat to move on and get out of the relationship they are in because they feel like its "over" in their mind... men just cheat to have fun... THey think its innocent because they felt nothing for the other person! But bottom line... it is pure SELFISHNESS!to the people we are cheating on, the people we are cheating with and ultimately, ourselves! and if we live past it hopefully and IF we ever grow past ourselves, we regret the hurt we put on others!

So you have basically given women "an excuse" as to why they cheat or have tried to justify it in some ridiculous manner but blast men for the same thing? Come No matter how a person spins it cheating is cheating no matter the gender and no matter the reasoning. If it is over in a persons mind then the right thing to do would be to end it and have no excuses.

Hello all....well i believe people cheat becaue they want and need to. Sexual addiction or just the feeling of being wanted by someone else can do it. Men take care of your women, women take care of your men.

I am one of the 15% of the women who admitted it to my spouse, I wanted the marriage to be over. I was in an abusive relationship and used my affair to get even for the abuse or so I thought. My spouse was very hurt when he learned the truth but still wanted to work things out or so he said. He just wanted revenge and got it too. He was not truthful about his feelings and got caught. He tried to deny it but when the other women started to stalk him he came clean.
Now we talk openenly about our issues and trying not to place blame but take responsibility for our actions instead. +

My sis admitted she cheated. She wanted emotional support! I hate it when guys don't give their women enough attention.

That's where swingers have it over the rest... No need to cheat, get what you want!

Not that everyone is Christian but if people would open their BIBLES and READ and FOLLOW it half of these issues wouldn't occur.

Cheeting is a breach of trust. Once broken, can never truely be mended. It reminds me of a inexpensive glass that gets broken, we simply throw it away. With relationships we we tend to hang on, hoping to rekendle that special feeling.... it never works. Once you loose trust you can't burry those hurt feelings deep enough to not occasionally have them resurface. It is sad but once trust becomes lost, and it doesn't have to be infadility, it is lost forever. You can take that to the bank.
