This is the age women are likely to cheat


Research shows that women who describe themselves as “lonely” with high sex drives are most likely to cheat – and as it turns out, there’s an average age they do it, too.

A new survey conducted by Victoria Milan, a dating site for married people seeking extramarital affairs, assessed figures from across multiple continents and countries. The study covered adult women of all ages, and compiled the average age of women cheating and their age at marriage.

While results varied by country, it turns out the seven-year itch theory isn’t that far off.

In the U.K., younger women account for a higher cheating percentage: 30 per cent of women who cheat on their partners are between the ages of 25 and 29, while in Finland just 15 per cent of women who claim they cheated fell into that age bracket. 

In Spain, the average age for women cheating on their partners is dramatically higher than most: between 40 and 44 — while in Hungary, the bracket jumps to 45 to 49 years of age.

In Canada, the average cheating age is 35.8, while married Canadian women typically embark on affairs after 6.7 years of marriage, according to survey results. In the U.S., women start having affairs after 8.5 years of marriage, with an average cheating age is 35.5.

In Europe, the country with the shortest period of time from getting married to having affairs is Ireland, with just 3.6 years before the woman cheats, having married at 30.8, on average. Still on Europe – Sweden’s married women waited 4.1 years after getting hitched before having an affair while U.K. women typically cheat after 4.4 years of marriage. 

Globally – the average age of women having affairs is 36.6, while the average age of marriage is 29, making the length of time between marriage and cheating 7.6 years.

According to Sigurd Vedal, founder of Victoria Milan, this means that women, on average, seek new lovers between seven and eight years after marriage. 

Married women start having affairs for various reasons. Perhaps their husband is not giving them the attention and respect they deserve. Perhaps they still love their partners, but the spark has vanished from their marriage,” Vedal stated.

In 2017, a survey conducted by British extramarital affair service Illicit Encounters found that women who identify as “homemakers” top the list of those who cheat, according to data collected from more than 10,000 profiles on their website.

“Your typical cheating woman isn’t driven by arrogance, ego or lust, but by a sense of loneliness, thanks to a lack of satisfaction in her marriage,” spokesman Christian Grant said. adding that loneliness is further compounded for housewives who may spend hours alone and then feel neglected by the time their husbands come home.

While a separate survey by the dating website discovered that older women are having affairs with younger versions of their husbands – as many as 78 per cent had an affair with a younger man.

The site surveyed a sample of over 500 married women over the age of 40, and found that 86 per cent joined the site because their sex life had dwindled. Survey results revealed that 16% of these women had an affair with someone aged 5 to 10 years younger, 37 per cent had an affair with someone aged 10 to 15 years younger, with the remaining 25 per cent had an affair with a man 15 to 20 years younger than them.

“A lack of passion and sex is unarguably the heaviest anchor in any relationship,” Grant noted.

For some, saying “I do,” is the easy part – it’s living “happily ever after,” that takes some extra effort. But all hope isn’t lost – Penn State researchers found that small gestures, such as showing your loved one compassion, is one secret to having a happy marriage.
