if they could cheat on their wife and get away with it, they would. 

I'm watching Doc Zone on CBC.  They have this episode on relationships on right now.  It was mentioned on the show that in a study 70% of married men said that if they could cheat on their wife and get away with it, they would.  That's a high number.

They also did a segment of how Tampa, Florida is the strip club capital of the North America.  How when the Republican National Convention came to Tampa in 2012, the strip clubs were busier than normal.  Majority of the men in these strip clubs were republicans.

They stated some other interesting facts, but these two stood out the most to me. 

I'm going to see if I can find an article link from Doc Zone on this episode.

Edited:  to clarify stated "married" men.

 I should have clarified in my first post that they stated "married" men.  They didn't say the percentage for "married" women.

 lmbo, well if they're going to cheat who are they cheating with?  Most I'm sure are with married women, less headaches.  However I'm like one of the other posters.  I wonder home many married women would cheat if they could get away with it.  Also, I wonder how that changes with age.  I would take a guess and say that most younger men would want to cheat if they could and older women would cheat if they could.  I could be wrong.

lol I bet if this were posted in one of the other groups around here, loads of chicks would be up in arms about it.. "MY HUSBAND WOULD NEVER DO SUCH A THING!!!!" pffft.

Men are men, and if they want to do something, they'll do it. Doesn't matter how much he loves you.  If they WANT to , they will.  If your hubby expresses that he will never do it, its because he doesn't want to.

I found from Google searching that the Doc Zone segment was called "Why Men Cheat".  Which is why they didn't focus on women.  Some other discussions in the show they mentioned were why men in power would risk jeopardizing their position over a cheating scandal - Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky (sp?) - John Edwards and his mistress - John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe, etc...  How it was very common and accepted more for a man to cheat on his wife or have more than one wife back in the 1800s, and how women have changed and don't put up with that crap like women back then did.  Some of it was interesting, but I misssed the first 20 minutes of the show.
