How common is it?

I saw a post saying the DH cheated on them. So I want to know how common is cheating in marriage? My DH and I have been married for 2yrs and have never had any problems with unfaithfulness. Also does anyone know how common it is to have an open relationship? I think thats creepy

  • Well, isn't the statistic that 50% of marriages end in divorce? I'd say the stats on cheating are even higher.

  • No idea. My DH has never cheated, but he behaved questionably right before our daughter was born. It changed the fabric of our marriage for a while, and he had to work hard to earn back trust.

    As for an open relationship - I'm not in one, but I once worked with 3 couples at the same job who were swingers.

  • I think the statistic is like 70% of all people cheat on a spouse/partner.

  • My husband had a one night 15 years ago.. We had been married less than 10 years at the time. Now married 24 years.

  • I think it is WAY to common and one reson our youth are so screwed up when it comes to relationships. I know that my husband and I have not cheated on each other. I hope that we never get to that point. It isn't about sex it is about making that person ( in this case your spouse) feel less important. If it was ok, then why keep it a secret. The open marriage thing is like a pp said..just plain creepy. I have no desire to share my husband and i don't think he wants to share me either. (help him if he does). An open marriage is just a polite way of saying that we cheat and the other knows. marriage isn't meant to be open. If it were, then polygamy would not have been made illeagal and adultry would not be grounds for divorce. Once you cross the line from being faithful, you are no longer a spouse, but you are a liar. IDC if your other half knows or not. Not many women I know gladly share their husband.I find the whole ideas sick

  • I would prefer to have an open relationship, but he isn't ready yet. So we are both monogamous... I can't imagine cheating, half the time I don't want to deal with sex at all let alone enough to go find someone else. And seeing how he doesn't even want to have another girl in bed with us because he would feel like he cheated I can trust that he wouldn't. But I think it's a fairly common issue in more conservative families than in those with spouses who are open to other options. My mother was married 3 times and all 3 times they cheated. And to be honest if I had to be married to her I would cheat too. My mother is very conservative - to the point where masturbation is a sin even if done with your DH... Where homes like mine, where just about anything goes, there is no need to look else where...

  • the way I say it is let them have my hubby cause I will get the house, the kids and LOTS of child support, but of course that would come after I chopped off his cock!.
    ..but I don't think hubby would cheat :) so I am good
