Almost half of Britons cheat

It seems Britain is an unfaithful nation, with 47 per cent of us admitting to cheating on their partner

It seems Britain is an unfaithful nation, with 47 per cent of us admitting to cheating on their partner.

Forget ‘for better or worse’, it seems almost half of Britons are unfaithful to their partners.

A staggering 47 per cent of the population have cheated on their other half, while 63 per cent have discovered they have been cheated on. Despite this, 42 per cent say they would forgive an unfaithful partner.

‘Sexpert’ Siski Green, author of How to Blow His Mind in Bed, told Marie Claire: ‘The fact is that most of the population has done it, had it done to them, or at least thought about it.’

‘Human beings seem to be programmed to crave new things which is why making a relationship work can be difficult,’ she says. ‘It means weighing up the pros and cons of an affair and realising that you have far more to lose than to gain with a fling.’

The survey by MSN reveals that the motivation to cheat is often fuelled by alcohol, with 25 per cent blaming infidelity on being drunk.

Green says: ‘Cheating on a partner is like cheating on a diet – you know it’s bad, you even know that you’ll probably pay the price for it, but in moments of weakness your desire to be good is overcome.’
