If you thought Alabama was one of the most conservative states in the United States, you would be mistaken. According to an analysis of data leaked from the recently hacked dating website Ashley Madison, the most unfaithful men and women live in Alabama.
In case you’re wondering what is Ashley Madison and what does a dating website have to do with married people, who presumably aren’t supposed to be dating, the Ashley Madison website is a dating website for married people looking for affairs.
The Ashley Madison website hack also revealed that out of the almost 36 million Ashley Madison customers, 90% to 95% of the customers were men. More than 15,000 of the registered email addresses belong to .mil or .gov accounts, including some from Alabama.
Given the secretive nature of infidelity, exact figures about cheating and extra-marital affairs are nearly impossible to establish. It’s estimated that 30% to 60% of all married individuals (in the United States) will engage in infidelity at some point during their marriage. These numbers are probably on the conservative side, when you consider that close to half of all marriages end in divorce, and when you consider the Ashley Madison website had over 36 million users.
Finding out that your spouse has cheated or thought about cheating can be a devastating, stressful experience. Infidelity brings out feelings of anger, betrayal, rejection, and mistrust.
Spouses who’ve been cheated on often find themselves in relationships that are lacking in trust and are full of problems such as anger and resentment, all which take their toll – draining people of their energy, their well-being and their self-esteem.
Deciding to leave a spouse because of infidelity is an important decision. If you’re considering staying with your spouse after they’ve cheated, the most important question you should ask yourself is this: Do you think you’d be better off without your husband/wife?
