The next time you’re caught red-handed cheating on your girlfriend, you may have a legitimate excuse… from science.
Researchers surveyed roughly 300 students and questioned them about the connections between their parent’s infidelity and their likelihood to commit the same relationship crime. 30% of students divulged that they had cheated on a partner at least once in their lives, while 33% of participants confided that their parents had been unfaithful (the study also found that more dads had cheated than moms).
Of those participants, nearly 44% of the students who said they had cheated also had unfaithful parents, versus the 22% of students who claimed they had never been unfaithful despite having cheating parents.
Interesting… and also an easy way out. I’m sure your girlfriend is going to LOVE this line – good luck!
