Your partner is cheating? According to a study, the likelihood of cheating is increased ninefold.

According to a recent study reported by the Daily Mail, people whose partners have cheated on them are almost nine times more likely to be unfaithful themselves. Researchers at California State University have dubbed this phenomenon “revenge intimacy,” which is typically motivated by anger and a desire to inflict similar emotional pain on the cheating partner.

For the study, published in the scientific journal Deviant Behavior, 2,000 married men and women were surveyed about topics related to infidelity. Aspects such as the respondents’ commitment, passion and intimacy in their relationships were also examined in order to record their impact on infidelity.

According to the Daily Mail, the results of the study showed that people who believe their partner has had sexual relations with someone else are 8.72 times more likely to be unfaithful themselves. Another notable finding of the study was that high levels of intimacy in a relationship do not have a deterrent effect on infidelity. The researchers concluded: “Giving a person everything they want does not stop them from being unfaithful.”

According to a 2020 study by ElitePartner, most Germans have not been unfaithful in their relationship. However, there were around 12 percent of women and around 18 percent of men who were at least tempted to cheat on their partner.

About a third of women said they had cheated at least once, while about 27 percent of men surveyed did.
