People working in certain jobs are more likely to cheat on their partners.

Adultery statistics vary across different studies and regions, but it’s estimated that around 20-40% of married individuals in the United States have engaged in extramarital affairs at some point in their lives.

The occurrence of adultery tends to be influenced by factors such as age, gender and cultural norms.

But could jobs play a factor too? New research suggests that might well be the case.

It turns out that bankers and brokers are the top-notch love cheats out there.

Those big-shot financial wizards have earned themselves a shiny gold medal in the unfaithfulness Olympics, leaving pilots and flight attendants, as well as doctors and nurses, trailing in their rather deceitful wake.

This revelation comes straight from a survey of over 5,000 women by ‘affair dating’ site Victoria Milan, who have either been caught red-handed or are currently dabbling in some extracurricular romance.

The poll revealed that a whopping two-thirds of these ladies (that’s 65% for those who prefer numbers) sneak around in the workplace while betraying their partners.

But don’t be fooled by all the excitement and thrill – a whopping 85% of these sneaky cheaters do not recommend mixing business with pleasure.

So why do they risk it all for a little fling in the office corridors?

Well, apparently, it spices up the daily grind, making work more exciting, fun, and even easier.

But here’s the flip side, ladies and gents – almost 70% of the women polled felt the icy chill of fear creeping down their spines.

The potential for things to go haywire and face repercussions in the office is a real concern.

Imagine having to work alongside your fling-flung lover after things have gone south – awkward much?
