Smarter men cheat less?

Heard this morning on "The Doctors": There's a new study out that says that the higher a man's IQ, the less likely he is to cheat. Do you believe this?

  • I would have to agree. Smart men know that they will get caught and get into a lot of trouble.... my husband knows that half of everything he owns will go with me if he is dumb enough to cheat on me.

  • Sounds like somebody went fishing for some grant money and caught themselves a big one!

  • I don't think so.

    My personal feeling is this.. Man/Woman.. Either are less likely to cheat if they are: happy, satisfied and fulfilled in/with their marriage and themselves.

    It's personal discontent that usually brings about the choice to cheat. And anyone can be discontent/unhappy regardless of IQ.

  • What about the president and politicians then? I'm sure you could classify them as "smart".

  • Haha, it sure fits my situation! My ex wasn't the brightest crayon in the box and he cheated all the time. My husband is quite intelligent, and he's not a cheater (and, lol, I know this is true because I've known him since 6th grade, we were best friends growing up).

    Maybe its because the smart guys are smart enough to realize what they have!!! ;)

    Not always. Some people are just insatiable. Trust me, I made sure my ex was more than content (he was absolutely spoiled) when we were together, and he just had to have every girl he saw.
