It is estimated that 30% to 60% married individuals in the United States will engage in infidelity at some point during the course of their relationship. Even these numbers look good when you consider that 50% of the marriages in the country end in divorce.

There is a misconception that people cheat on their spouse after being married for a long time. In fact, a larger number of cases of infidelity are seen among people under the age of 30 years. One of the reasons for this is that the partners tend to spend more time away from each other due to their commitments and their proclivity to have sex with multiple partners, which they might have developed before marriage.
