Here’s another thing you can blame on your in-laws.
Asked in a survey, most people say their in-laws cause them to cheat!
Wow. Let that sit for a second…
The survey released today by Victoria Milan, that’s the dating website for attached people looking to cheat, finds that affairs are usually caused by external factors and not something internal.
The survey finds that 83% believe external factors and not what you may think: problems in the bedroom or lack of attraction.
Victoria Milan surveyed 6,500 of its male and female members to identify what causes people to cheat on their spouse.
The biggest problem: Twenty-six percent said interference from nosy in-laws and family members cause relationships to break down.
“Internal problems are resolved on an even playing field – the two players involved are the only two who can fix the situation – whether it’s issues in the bedroom or something even more personal,” says Sigurd Vedal, CEO and Founder of Victoria Milan. “External problems – such as the age-old problem of the mother-in-law – are open to a whole new range of factors and thus are more harmful – even for the strongest of relationships.”
Working too much came in a close second at 18%.
Binge-drinking and serial flirts are the third most likely vices to kick-start marital problems at 14%.
Only 11% blamed social networking, the Internet and smart-phones.
Other issues that cause people to cheat: fights over religion and politics and a gardener with the rock-hard abs or the nanny with the too-short skirt.
Unfortunately the survey by Victoria Milan doesn’t address how to stop cheating. But then that would be counter-productive for them.
