Who’s cheating? You might be surprised.

According to AshleyMadison.com, the typical cheating husband might surprise you.

Instead of a scummy Leisuresuit Larry, a survey of Ashley Madison members revealed that the average cheater:

  • is in his 40s
  • has been married for more than a decade
  • has two kids
  • works in IT or engineering

The last one seems surprising, considering how male-dominated high tech workplaces are. But IT nerds are more likely to conduct personal business online and would have less opportunity to commit adultery with coworkers.

Of course, since it’s a self-reported survey of known lying cheaters, you may want to take this data with a grain of salt.

What profession do you think would be most likely to dominate the ranks of cheaters?

  1. My (married) boyfriend works in IT. His job allows him to travel. They work odd hours since a lot of stuff has to be done at night so they don’t disturb the business…it really does provide the perfect cover.
