Wealthy People Are More Likely to Cheat, Especially Men

  • IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, is home to over 60,000 executives and financial professionals
  • The site found that adulterers earn an average of £52,000 a year, after tax, with the amount of city professionals who’ve joined has risen by 8% year-on-year
  • 1% claimed to bring home earnings of £1 million or more each year; <1% stated they had assets worth into the tens of millions, indicating that certain captains of industry frequent the site
  • The site surveyed 600 of its members, with 29% stating that they work 60-hour weeks. 34%, work 40-hour weeks and 20% work a hefty 80-hour week
  • 45% have engaged in an affair with someone they work with

The jury’s out on whether money can buy happiness, but what’s certain is that it can’t buy a stable relationship.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, can reveal that richer people are more likely to cheat.

The average member on the site earns an average of £52,000 per year, after tax, significantly higher than the national average. The site is already home to over 60,000 executives and financial professionals, 65% of which are men, while the amount of city professionals who’ve signed up has also risen by as much as 8% year-on-year.

A small amount of members, 1%, also claimed to bring home earnings of £1 million or more each year, while less than 1% stated that they had assets worth into the tens of millions and more, indicating, perhaps, that certain captains of industry reside on the dating website.

That would hardly come as a surprise however, with businessmen from the likes of CEO of Lloyd’s Bank Antonio Horta-Osorio to Donald Trump, to name just two, having notoriously engaged in illicit encounters of their own.

The site also surveyed 600 of its members, with as many as 29% stating that they worked 60-hour weeks. The majority, 34%, worked the standard 40-hour week, but as many as 20% work a hefty 80-hour week.

With so many hours spent at work, it’s time at home that’s sacrificed, with 73% of respondents saying that they spend less time with their partner since they assumed a senior role in their respective places of work.

Meanwhile, 66% state that they have less sex with their partner than they used to.

With time a scarce resource, juggling a second relationship can be difficult, which is why 45% have engaged in an affair with someone they work with.

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains:

“Successful people are born workaholics. They live and breathe their careers, work incredibly long hours, and value their career above all else. That means that relationships with loved ones are at a premium.

“But, they’re still human. You still want a physical relationship, but coming home late to find your partner already asleep isn’t ideal, so a relationship with a colleague ensues.

“For those that do engage in a long-term affair, though, they can at least do so on their terms They don’t have to meet incredibly often, and when they do meet they can arrange the time and place to suit their respective work schedules. They don’t always necessarily have to deal with the emotional needs of each other, either, and it’s something that can be kept purely physical.

“It’s flexible, ideal, and it’s no surprise to see this demographic flood sites like Illicit Encounters.”

Over Half Of Adulterers Say An Affair Saved Their Marriage

  • 61% of married adulterers who engaged in a long-term affair claim that it saved their marriage
  • 17% said they were significantly less likely to divorce their partner
  • 13% said having an affair made them better lovers
  • 47% of married adulterers who engaged in a short-term affair claim that it saved their marriage

The results come from a survey of 200 married people on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people

While an affair can certainly cause complications in a marriage, IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, found that in a lot of cases, it can actually save one.

100 married people who have engaged in at least one long-term affair (6 months or more) were surveyed, with 61% stating that having an affair saved their relationship, making their marriage stronger and happier.

13% said that having an affair made them better lovers.

Meanwhile, a further 17% went as for as to say that they were significantly less likely to divorce their partner, with their affair having filled the gaps in their existing relationship.

A further 100 people who had a short-term affair (less than 6 months) were also surveyed, with just under half (47%) stating that the affair saved their relationship. 10% felt like the affair made them better lovers, while 12% said they were less likely to file for divorce.

One of the biggest reasons behind an affair is a lack of intimacy in a relationship, whereby one partner loses their virility far quicker than the other. Naturally, that leads to friction, agitation and a far less happier relationship in almost every aspect. Elise was one of these women, so she joined Illicit Encounters for the attention and intimacy she was missing at home.

She says:

“My husband saw a side of me that had evaded him for a while. I was happier around the house, less agitated, friendlier and I was far more able to meet his emotional needs now that my physical ones were being met.”

The same applied to Dennis, who also joined Illicit Encounters following a regular but lacklustre sex life with his wife. After the affair began his relationship with his wife improved exponentially, as he became a more tolerant and attentive husband.

He says:

“The biggest positive was how much my marriage at home improved. My wife was still getting the intimacy that satisfied her, but at the same time, I felt like I became a better husband and lover. I know some people will frown upon what I’m doing, and I do understand, but I’m so much happier, and my wife is too, that the regret or guilt doesn’t weigh on me. I’m happy with the decision I’ve made.”

However, sometimes things aren’t always that simple. More often than not, an affair is a result of someone’s hand being forced, with all other options off the table. That’s what happened to Jane, who joined Illicit Encounters following her husband’s involvement in an accident that left him physically impaired.

She says:

“I love my husband in absolutely every way, but I felt compelled to join IE after he became paralysed following an accident several years ago.

“As you’d expect, that destroyed any intimacy between us, with anything physical becoming pretty much impossible. I found myself stuck between a rock and a hard place. This was still the kind, sweet and loving man I married, and he is still a great father to our children, but as a woman in my mid-40’s, am I supposed to be confined to a sexless life until the day I, or he, dies?

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, comments:

“A common misconception is that an affair is black and white. If you cheat, you’re a bad person without reprieve, and conversely, if you don’t, your marriage is blissful and without issue. We know that’s absolutely not the case.

“People have an affair for a variety of different reasons and, contrary to popular belief, it’s not because they’re bad, greedy, or horrible people. They’ve often explored every avenue before they decide to have an affair. They’ve been through counselling, they’ve spoken to their partner, or in some cases, such as Jane’s, solving it is beyond their control.

“What we do know is that an affair doesn’t necessarily have to ruin a marriage, and it can sometimes save it. We can see the positive impact an affair can have, with up to 17% of our respondents willing to stay with their partner as a result – the positives that come with that are endless. Economic stability, their own happiness and general well-being, and not to mention the stable upbringing of their children are all invaluable benefits that can derive from that.”
The full stories of these adulterers are available below:

Elise – 41 – London

“My husband lost interest in sex when he hit his mid-40s, reducing our intimate lives to just birthdays and the occasional one-off here and there. I spoke to him about it, we went for counselling, but his stance didn’t change. With very few options left available to me, I joined Illicit Encounters with one thing in mind.

“Within a few weeks, I got speaking to a couple of men, and what followed was several months of sex that had sadly escaped from my marriage long ago.

“My husband was not only none the wiser, but he actually saw a side of me that had evaded him for a while. I was happier around the house, less agitated, friendlier and I was far more able to meet his emotional needs now that my physical ones were being met.

“In a strange way, my bond with my husband feels as strong as it’s ever been. I’m his rock – I always have been – but there’s no friction anymore, and I don’t feel like a burden now that I’m not having to ask him for something he clearly wasn’t willing to give me.”

Jane – 46 – Newcastle

“My story is a little different to what I’d imagine most people expect your average affair to be. I love my husband in absolutely every way, but I felt compelled to join IE after he became paralysed following an accident several years ago.

“As you’d expect, that destroyed any intimacy between us, with anything physical becoming pretty much impossible. I found myself stuck between a rock and a hard place. This was still the kind, sweet and loving man I married, and he is still a great father to our children, but as a woman in my mid-40’s, am I supposed to be confined to a sexless life until the day I, or he, dies?

“My options were to either remain sexless for decades or have an affair. Neither option was particularly appealing, but I feel like I chose the lesser of two evils. My partner and I can raise our children continue to live as normal a life as possible, while I have my physical needs elsewhere. I appreciate that it’s an unorthodox solution to an unorthodox problem, but I truly feel like the affair has saved my marriage.”

Dennis – 39 – Sussex

“My sex life with my wife was never bad, but it was never great either. She was never willing to experiment in the bedroom or try new things, not to the extent that I was at least. While our sex life never dwindled, it lacked passion and romance – it was sex for the sake of sex’s sake, as if it was another part of the daily routine – you don’t even think twice about it.

  • That means it’s the single biggest day a married person is likely to get cheated on this winter
  • The week of Unfaithful Friday saw 30% more activity on married-dating website IllicitEncounters.comthan any other week in November and December last year,

  • The most popular getaway destinations include Paris, Austria and Yorkshire

Has your partner got any inexplicable, mysterious plans this coming weekend? If so, you’re right to be alarmed.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, can that this Friday 17th November is the the single most popular day for adulterers this winter.

‘Unfaithful Friday’, as it’s been dubbed, marks a last-chance getaway for adulterers, who set off for one last romance before Christmas is in full swing, and commitments to family and friends start to get in the way.

It isn’t just the 17th that’s busy however. In fact, last year, the entire week saw a 30% increase in activity – which includes the amount of photos uploaded, profiles created and the number of messages sent – compared with any other week in November or December. As much as a 41% increase already seen on the first two days of the week so far in 2017, with a 50% increase predicted for the week in total.

A survey of over 500 adulterers on the site also found that a tremendous 79% have plans in place to get away with their mistress/histress on Unfaithful Friday, while as many as 20% intend to spend the entire weekend with their secret tryst.

With Unfaithful Friday representing the last affair of the year for many adulterers, most aren’t skimping on their destinations, and plan to go out in style.

Paris (17%) is the most popular destination, followed by Austria (15%), just in time for its famous Christmas markets.

The remainder of adulterers are mainly seeking retreats closer to home, with Yorkshire (14%), the Scottish Highlands (13%), Central London (11%), and the Peak District (7%) all proving popular.

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains:

“Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. The thoughtful gift you appreciate but in your heart of hearts don’t honestly like. Stuffing your face full of turkey. It’s Christmas, and for an adulterer, that spells trouble.

“From Christmas shopping to nativity plays to seeing the in-laws, Christmas is undoubtedly the biggest stumbling block for anyone seeing their mistress or histress.

“That choke point leads to the inevitable: a premature year-ending romp to see out 2017 in style, albeit prematurely.

“So, if your partner is being coy about their plans this weekend, then it might be best to apply a bit of pressure to the wound and see what they’re really up to.”

Most Popular Destinations on Unfaithful Friday

  3. Austria (15%)
  4. Yorkshire (14%)
