Three in every five people would seek revenge if they found out their husband or wife was cheating on them, and 10% of the women who get angry would target their guy’s car, according to a poll of 3,000 people that was reported by the Independent.
The British poll, by the Autoglass company, found that women are more likely than men to seek revenge. Of those who decide to get even, 22- to 25-year-olds are the most likely to smash a car windshield. Those in the 19- to 21-year-old age group said they would damage the paintwork, while 31- to 35-year-olds were more inclined to sell the car to make a little profit for themselves.
After the age of 50, says the poll, spouses who had been cheated on were more likely to give the cheater the silent treatment and simultaneously spend as much money as possible.
"Our research clearly shows that in the UK most people won’t turn the other cheek when it comes to infidelity," Autoglass managing director Nigel Doggett said, according to the Independent. "And as the car seems to be one of the prime targets for getting even, this poll should serve as a warning to anyone thinking of straying."
