Every guy who's ever cheated has also probably told themselves, "I'd never cheat". The fact is that infidelity is rife in today's society, and there's nothing to suggest your relationship is any exception.
But researchers have found a pattern and have worked out the ages that guys are most likely to cheat on their partners.
A new study by IllicitEncounters.com suggests that people at the “danger age” are most likely to have affairs. This so-called “danger age” occurs at the end of a decade for example 19, 29, 39 and 49.
Other research from numerous studies confirms that people behave differently as they approach a new decade. The pressures of you ‘almost hitting 30’ or being 1 year shy of 40 seems to have a deeper effect than we ever realised.
Those with “9-ending ages” are more likely to be preoccupied with ageing and contemplate the meaning of their life, which leads to changes in behaviour for example “a search for, or a crisis of meaning,” such as an affair, the researchers said.
