Intimacy Issues Point to Higher Risk of Cheating

If your significant other has a tendency to hide his or her feelings, avoid intimacy and change the subject whenever the topic of moving in or marriage comes up, you might want to watch out.

According to a new study from the Université de Montreal, he or she is at a higher risk of cheating on you.

The probability of one person being unfaithful in a relationship ranges between 40 and 76 per cent, according to some studies, said Genevieve Beaulieu-Pelletier, a PhD student at the university. (The numbers drop significantly for couples in long-term marriages.)

"It's very high," Beaulieu-Pelletier said. "These numbers indicate that, even if we get married with the best of intentions, things don't always turn out the way we plan.

"What interests me about infidelity is why people are willing to conduct themselves in ways that could be very damaging to themselves and to their relationship."
