Your children are taking their first step into adulthood as they leave for university, but as you celebrate their new journey, you start to realise what it is they’ve left behind.
IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, can report an alarming 67% month-on-month increase in the amount of parents signing up to the site.
The cause? ‘Empty Nest Syndrome’. With thousands of 18-year-olds fleeing the nest for the very first time, parents find themselves in ground they’ve not tread on for almost two decades.
While the solitude of a child-free home might initially seen as a blessing, it’s not long before the cracks in the relationship start to appear. Married couples find themselves bored, distant, and begin to realise that the love they had for their partner has dwindled, and it was their child that was truly keeping them together.
Interestingly, of the new parents to have signed up to IllicitEncounters.com in the last month, as many as 44% were either housewives or unemployed, with the loneliness too much to handle.
With the relationship with their child now becoming long-distance, and the relationship with their partner not what it once was, they go in search of an affair, and some companionship.
The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, comments:
“The children are very often the glue that keeps everything together, but that can only delay the inevitable for so long.
“People change, and the person you first stood opposite the altar is unlikely to be the same person you find yourself living with 18 years later. For many, the romance, the spark, and the excitement is all but gone.
“It’s also clear to see that it doesn’t take long for these feelings to get the better of most people. Empty Nest Syndrome strikes fast – in a matter of weeks for many.
“With no children left to take care of, one’s mission as a parent feels complete, and with your partner feeling more like a stranger than ever before, it’s no surprise to see so many seek an affair to find what they’re missing.”
