A woman’s intuition: over three quarters of women can tell when their husband is cheating on them

Image result for woman's intuition

• 79% of women and 49% of men correctly suspected their partner of cheating
• Women were better at catching their partner, and they were twice as likely to call out them for cheating, too
• 5% of women admitted to hiring a private investigator to track their husband, but just 2% of men did the same
• 85% of women and 82% of men denied their affair when they were confronted by their partner
• The research comes from IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, who spoke to the husbands and wives that caught their partner cheating

If you’ve got a niggling doubt that your partner might be unfaithful, you’re probably right. That’s according to IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity.

They spoke to the husbands and wives who caught their significant other cheating, finding that a rather alarmingly high number of women (79%) had previously suspected their partner of cheating before they eventually caught them.

The number of men who suspected their wife of cheating, however, was significantly less (49%), leaving the majority totally oblivious to their wife’s indiscretions.

Women were also twice as likely to call out their husband when they suspected them of cheating, doing so an average of four times compared to just twice for men.

And to prove that hell really hath no fury like a woman scorned, women were also more than twice as likely to hire a detective or private investigator to track their husband when they suspected him of cheating, with 5% of women admitting to doing so; a mere 2% of men did the same.

Where men and women had some sort of parity was in deniability, with 85% of women and 82% of men denying their affair whenever they were confronted by their significant other.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Christian Grant, adds:

“Maybe it’s a woman’s intuition, or maybe blokes are doing a terrible job of covering their tracks, but it’s safe to say that if you have a suspicion that your partner is cheating, however slight, it’s worth trusting your gut on this one… if you’re a woman, anyway.

“Men on the other hand aren’t getting any help from their gut whatsoever. They’re either completely oblivious that their wife is cheating on them, or they’re more fearful of incorrectly accusing their wife when she may be totally innocent.

Kimberley – 32 – Hampshire

“I remember first being concerned when my husband became less and less interested in sex for no apparent reason. It didn’t happen instantly, like he was eager to have sex one day but couldn’t care less the next, but it was definitely noticeable.

“But I gave him the benefit of the doubt – he’s my husband, and I know I’d feel uncomfortable if someone had accused me of cheating, so I tried to forget about it.

“Then gradually, I started to get other hints that made it really difficult not to be cynical. He started spending more and more time at work (for no apparent reason, he hadn’t received a promotion or anything like that) as well as with ‘friends’.

“It got to the point where I’d started to feel so neglected in favour of, as it turns out, this other woman he was seeing, that I decided to question him about it. To my dismay, he denied everything, and when I questioned him a second time, he denied it again, but more aggressively this time. He’d wilted by the third time I’d called him out and that was that.”
Cheryl – 42 – Coventry

“My husband and I were always perfectly happy… at least so I thought! We both work decent jobs, we spent time together, our kids are perfectly happy and so on.

“I wouldn’t have had much reason to suspect he was cheating on me – like I said, I thought all was well – and in fact the way I found out was all rather cliché.

“We live in a small town near Coventry, so it’s not uncommon to bump into someone you know, and that’s what happened. A family friend noticed my husband out with another woman.

“Obviously I was shocked when she told me, but my first thoughts were that it could have been a colleague, client, a friend I simply don’t know about etc.

“With that said, I couldn’t help but be a little suspicious, so I went through his internet history (it seemed like an obvious place to start) and it confirmed my suspicions.

“It took me some time to stomach and process everything, but I called him out on it a few days later, providing his search history as proof that I knew. We had a pretty open and honest chat about everything – I took it surprisingly well – and we’ve started seeking marriage counselling as a result.”

Tall, dark and unfaithful? It’s official, taller men are more likely to play away!​

Image result for tall men

  • Taller men are more likely to have an affair, new research has revealed
  • Of a survey of over 1,800 married men, 20% were between 6ft 1″ and 6ft 2″ tall
  • 60% of all men were over 6ft tall, with the least common height range being between 5ft 5” and 5ft 6” (3%)
  • 57% of a survey of over 950 women said that they would not date someone who was shorter than them
  • The findings come from IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people
Does your height impact your likelihood to have an affair? New research seems to suggest that that’s the case.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, surveyed over 1,800 of its male members and found that the most common height range was between 6ft 1” and 6ft 2”, the height of 20% of respondents, with the average height being just under 6ft 1”.

In fact, 60% of all men surveyed were over 6ft, with the least common height range being between 5ft 5” and 5ft 6” (3%).

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains why this is more than just a coincidence:

“It might seem old fashioned, but generally speaking, dating someone shorter than you is a sacrifice too great for many people. It’s even worse for women who, with their killer heels on show, absolutely tower over their partners – it makes for an awkward picture to say the least.

“What that all means for tall blokes is that they’re more likely to grab a woman’s attention by virtue of their height alone. With that in mind, they’re more likely to be confident when it comes to picking up women, and, in this case, more likely to find themselves in a position to cheat than a shorter man – it’s all about how many can resist the temptation to have an affair.”

Many adulterous celebrities support this evidence, with Ben Affleck and Vernon Kay, both of whom cheated on their respective partners, standing at an impress 6ft 4″. On the other hand, celebrities like Kevin Bacon and Dustin Hoffman, who’ve been married for 28 years and 36 years respectively, stand at 5ft 10″ and 5ft 6″ tall.

In a separate survey of over 950 married women, over half (57%) said that they wouldn’t date someone if they were shorter than them.

Lucy, 44, was one of those women, as she explains:

“The main reason I’m having an affair is because I want what my husband can’t give me at home. I know it might seem shallow, but there needs to be a physical attraction, and height is definitely a massive part of that.

If I’m going to settle and not get what I want out of an affair, then what’s the point of having one at all?”

Nature Lovers More Prone To Seasonal Amore Disorder

Image result for AUTUMN LOVE
If early January is traditionally the time unhappy couples initiate divorce proceedings, autumn is the season for weary marrieds to embark on affairs. For the fifth year running,IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, reports an early autumn spike in new memberships, a phenomenon which is being increasingly referred to as “Seasonal Amore Disorder.”

Christian Grant, spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, seeks to explain this seasonal trend:

“For the past five years we have noticed an average 7% increase in new memberships towards the end of September.

Keen to capitalise on whatever is driving this increase, we conducted some research. The reasons we found are threefold: the comedown after the summer party season with all its highs and lows, science and the way autumn uniquely lends itself to new romance.

“Autumn is traditionally a tricky time for established couples, as the recent, steady roll-call of celebrity break-ups will attest. Summer time, with its busy social calendar comprising festivals, weddings and parties, makes it easier to prop up an ailing relationship in the ‘diluted’ company of friends.

Long-term plans like booked summer holidays are best seen through given the stress of canceling. But once the summer hiatus is behind you and you have nothing left in the diary until Christmas, combined with the gloomy prospect of being cooped up with one another over these long, dark nights, couples experience a lull. This lull can cause many relationships to fizzle out or for a partner to seek something new to fill the excitement void.

“This trend also stacks up biologically. Studies suggest our libidos are naturally higher in summer. Sunshine increases our levels of serotonin and dopamine, both of which influence our mood and arousal levels. Testosterone is boosted by light and we tend to dress in skimpier clothes. As autumn approaches, our bodies, so used to being ‘on alert’ are craving our next ‘feel-good dopamine fix.’ This unwanted comedown, for some, manifests itself in seeking new excitement, and what is more exhilarating than new romance?”

Finally, when new members were asked if they viewed themselves as a nature lover, a convincing 79% answered in the affirmative.

And while autumn may appear a less romantic season to embark on new romance, think again. While the nights may be drawing in and we are putting on more clothes, what is more romantic than a stroll outdoors in the low autumn sunshine, kicking leaves, before nestling in front of a crackling log fire in a cosy pub?

Concluding, Grant surmised:

“If you are in a stale relationship, have a mildly addictive personality and love nature, it’s highly likely you’ll experience Seasonal Amore Disorder. That’s Amore.”

Here’s How Many People Get Married… Even Though They’re Already Having An AFFAIR!

Image result for affair

  • 8% of married people admitted to getting married even though they were already having an affair; the majority (64%) were men
  • 55% said that they began to care deeply for both people so decided to pursue both relationships
  • 27% continued their affair for at least a year into the marriage, with 5% pursuing the affair for 5 years or more
  • The research raises several salient points, such as whether some people are born with a natural propensity to cheat
  • The survey of over 900 married people is brought to you by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people

Who can you trust? Not your spouse, possibly. New research from IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, surveyed over 900 of their members to find that 8% admitted to getting married even though they were already having an affair.

As for the reasons why the adulterers in question chose not to break off their affairs, over half (55%) claimed that they began to care deeply for both people and were met with indecision, so they decided to continue to pursue both relationships in order to have the best of both worlds.

23% were worried that their fellow adulterer could potentially tell their wife or husband-to-be of their affair, so they, too, chose not to break it off.

“While an affair that manifests itself when a marriage begins to grow stale is simply commonplace, an affair before a marriage has even begun is an entirely different beast,” explains the site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant.

“It raises some salient points; namely, are we meant to be monogamous, are some people born with a natural propensity to cheat, and how or why is there a lack of even a semblance of foresight for an individual who takes this sort of decision?”

The study also showed that men were bigger culprits than women, with 64% of those who pursued an affair into their marriage being men. 27% of respondents admitted to continuing the affair for at least a year into their marriage, with 5% maintaining their affair for 5 years or more.

But whether the adulterer elects to break off their affair or not, they’re more than likely the beneficiary of this sort of scenario.

“In instances like this, the cheater is in a win-win situation,” Grant explains.

“Even if they admit their infidelity and lose their husband/wife as a result, they’re still likely to have the ‘safety net’ of their fellow adulterer to go to.

Likewise, if they break off their affair, with their spouse totally oblivious that it ever took place to begin with, it is their fellow adulterer who is left hurt and alone, with the cheater still able to pursue a relationship with their spouse.”

Hell really does hath no fury like a woman scorned – they are more ruthless at ending marriages after discovering an affair, according to new study

Image result for hell hath no fury like a woman scorned
 
* Men are MORE willing to forgive affairs than women;
* Women are better at hiding their cheating behaviour than men;
* Facebook is most common reason for a woman starting an affair;
* Most common reason for men was dissatisfaction in the bedroom;
* Results are from a new survey of 1,000 adulterers by IllicitEncounters.com – Britain’s leading dating website for married people
MEN are more willing to forgive affairs than women, according to new study.
It found that 67% of men are prepared to give marriage a second chance after discovering their wife’s betrayal.
In contrast, only 52% of women say they would stay with their husband after discovering his adultery.
The main reason why men are more forgiving is because of the reasons why men and women cheat in the first place.
A third of men (32%) said their wife had cheated because they had been neglectful and they could understand why they had strayed.
Almost half of wives (54%) said they were unable to move on from the adultery because they felt it was part of a pattern and would happen again.
The results come from a new survey of 1,000 adulterers by IllicitEncounters.com – Britain’s leading dating website for married people.
It found that women are better at hiding their affairs than men.
Just over half of female adulterers (52%) said their husband had no idea they had been unfaithful despite having several affairs.
Only 42% of male cheats remained completely undiscovered.
The key to saving a marriage in the wake of an affair is how the other half discovers the betrayal.
If the women owns up and pledges to stay with her husband, the marriage survives in 82% of cases.
But if the man confesses and wants to save his marriage, he is only successful in 68% of cases – again because of this pattern of cheating.
If the woman is caught out by her husband, the survival rates drops to 52%.
If the man is caught cheating, the survival rate is slightly worse at 42% – showing again that women are more ruthless in dealing with betrayal.
The most common reason for a new affair for women is Facebook – where they are likely to hook up with an old flame. Facebook is now cited in a third of all divorce cases
For men, the most common reason for a new affair is dissatisfaction in the bedroom and the desire for fresh excitement.
IllicitEncounters.com spokesman Christian Grant said: “The phrase hell hath no fury like a woman scorned really does seem to be rooted in fact.
“This new IllicitEncounters research shows that women really do react much more badly to cheating that men and that a husband’s adultery is more likely to end in divorce than a wife’s.
“Women are better at covering up their cheating than men and it clear that there are millions of husbands who have no idea about their wife’s illicit behaviour.”
Women date more actively on IllicitEncounters.com than men – enjoying an average of three dates a month compared to men’s two.
The site, an authority on infidelity, has more than a one million registered members and most people on the site remain with their spouses while discreetly seeing other partners.
Top five reasons why women have affairs
1 Facebook – hooking up with an old flame
2 I felt neglected
3 I met someone new
4 I fancied a change
5 I was bored with my husband
Top five reasons why men have affairs
1 My sex life was boring

What do Jay Z, Low Wages and an Early Marriage Have In Common? They’re Wrecking Young People’s Marriages

  • There has been a huge increase in the number of young people aged 21-30 having affairs, with that age group the least faithful they have ever been
  • 44% of affair-seekers aged 21-30 chose not to divorce because of the financial implications, while 50% were worried about what a divorce might mean for their children
  • Those factors have driven them to affairs, with IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, witnessing a 20% year-on-year increase in the amount of people aged 21-30 signing up to the site
  • Almost three quarters (71%) felt that they could have an affair and get away with it; celebrity culture is partly to blame, as many celebrities, like Jay Z, have affairs but still thrive in their careers and remain popular among their fans
  • Of over 1,000 peopled aged 21-30 who were surveyed, 78% cited a premature marriage as the main cause for the breakdown of their marriage

More and more young people are having affairs, so says a new survey. IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, has reported a 20% increase year-on-year in the amount of people aged 21-30 signing up to the site.

Of over 1,000 young people who were surveyed, an overwhelming 78% admitted they had “married too young” and have since sought to have an affair as a result of their relationship with their partner breaking down.

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains:

“There is more and more pressure on young people to have the perfect relationship. We live in a connected world whereby we’re constantly seeing the smiling faces of our friends and family, be it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram – you name it – and we can’t help but compare our lives to theirs.

It’s a classic case of keeping up with the Jones’, and that mentality means people make rash decisions, one of them being a premature marriage.”

But if a marriage is turning sour, wouldn’t the simple answer be to get a divorce?

Well, of the 1,000 affair-seekers aged 21-30 who were surveyed, 44% were too scared to divorce because of the financial implications, while 50% said that they didn’t want a divorce for the sake of their children.

As Grant explains, a divorce isn’t always a viable option:

“People of all ages come to a site like IllicitEncounters because they’re worried about divorce. They don’t want to put their kids through it, for one, but they’re also worried about what it’ll mean for their finances. Young people share those exact same issues, except they’re much worse.

On average, they’re on lower wages than those 10, 20 or 30 years older than them; they’ve got student loans to pay off… they’re only just managing as it is, so the idea of a divorce might be nice, but it’s not necessarily realistic, from a financial perspective if nothing else.”

You’ve also got to factor in celebrity culture. How many celebrities cheat, then aren’t really held to task? Whether it’s movie stars like Kristen Stewart or Ben Affleck, musicians like Jay Z, and everything in between – these celebrities have affairs and aren’t exactly punished for it – quite the opposite in fact. They still thrive in their careers, and they’re still loved by their fans, so it’s easy for anyone to look at that and think, ‘well, what have I got to lose?”

This corroborates with the results from the site’s survey, as almost three quarters (71%) felt that they could have an affair and get away with it.

Will Your Marriage Survive Euro 2016? Survey says: Probably not, no.​

  • IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, saw 72% of all female signups between Friday and Sunday cite their husbands’ obsession with the football as their main reason for wanting to cheat
  • There was a 61% rise in site usage compared to an average, out of season weekend, peaking at two hours before and two hours after the start and conclusion of Saturday’s match between England and Russia
  • 35% of the weekend’s female signups admitted to wanting an affair because their partner would rather watch football than have sex
  • 20% said that football provides them a good opportunity to cheat
  • A further 25% said that their partner becomes “unreasonable” when watching football

Thousands of ‘football widows’ have taken to the internet in search of an affair in the wake of the European Championships.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading website for married people, has surveyed their new female signups between Friday 10th and Sunday 12th June, with almost three quarters (72%) citing the European Championships, or rather their husbands’ obsession with it, as their main reason for joining.

The site also reported a 61% rise in site usage compared to an average, out of season weekend, which, rather unsurprisingly, peaked between two hours before and two hours after the start and conclusion of Saturday’s match between England and Russia.

Christian Grant, spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, commented:

“A mid-summer weekend in June is generally an out of season period for us, so these results should provide a wakeup call of sorts to the millions of football fans across the UK.

With three games a day for several days, and the involvement of all our home nations with the exception of Scotland, we can be quietly confident these numbers are going to maintain this level over the next few weeks or so.”

Of the women who signed up between Friday and Sunday, 35% claimed they had done so because their partner chose football over sex.

A further 25% claimed that their partner becomes “unreasonable” during football, while 20% said that they used the European Championships as the perfect distraction to sign up to the site.

Grant added:

“With nine months of domestic football having only just come to its conclusion, another month of constant neglect, with other sporting events such as Wimbledon and the Olympics following shortly after, is proving to be the final straw for thousands of women.”

Rosie, 38, said:

“When the football is on, my name is only mentioned because of the occasional request for beer and snacks, or if my husband has used me as a punchline to a joke so he can impress his mates. Other than that, I might as well be invisible.”

Over Half of Wives Want More Sex from their Husbands

n-MARRIAGE-SEX-628x314

  • 57% of women (who have been married for over 5 years) are “dissatisfied” with the amount of sex they are getting
  • 62% are unhappy with their partner’s performance in bed
  • Half of women want to get intimate at least twice a month
  • 60% felt that a lack of intimacy has led them to want to have an affair
  • The survey comes from IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people.

Women across the UK are moaning and groaning, but it’s for all the wrong reasons. That’s according to IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, who surveyed nearly 2000 female members who have been married for over 5 years to find out how satisfied they were with the intimate side of their marriage.

57% of respondents reported a “dissatisfaction” with the amount of sex they were getting, while an even greater number, 62%, were unhappy with their husband’s performance between the sheets.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Christian Grant, said: “It doesn’t make for good reading. You’ll often find that, as a relationship goes on, the spark slowly starts to fade, and getting intimate can become more of a chore or force of habit. Evidently however, for many women that simply isn’t enough, and you can’t really blame them.”

As to how much counts as ‘enough,’ IllicitEncounters.com’s survey found that 50% of respondents felt that getting intimate at least twice a month was sufficient. 27% felt that once a month was enough, while 10% want to have sex three times a month. Of the remaining 13%, 5% want to get intimate 2-3 times a week, with 3% stating that more than once a week was enough.

The survey also showed that a lack of intimacy could potentially lead to many women cheating on their husbands, with over half (60%) of respondents touting the poor physical side to their relationship as their main reason for joining IllicitEncounters.com.

“Needless to say, a lack of passion in a relationship, whether that’s down to quality or quantity, could very easily prove to be a major stumbling block,” adds Grant.

“Saying ‘hey honey, you’re not quite good enough where it counts’ isn’t an easy thing for any woman to say to her husband, but at the same time, very few people will sit around and refuse to act on their instincts – they’re only human, after all.”

Monogamy Isn’t in Our DNA! New Survey Shows That Even People in A Happy Marriage Cheat Too

the-real-reason-happy-married-people-cheat-is-so-surprising

One thing’s for certain, only people in a crumbling marriage cheat. Except, that’s not true at all. IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading and longest running dating website for married people, surveyed 1000 of its members, finding that 45% of affair-seeking men and 34% of affair-seeking women declared themselves to be in a happy marriage.

“It’s a result that may surprise some,” says IllicitEncounters.com’s spokesperson, Christian Grant.

“A common misconception is that anyone who cheats must be at the end of their tether with their partner, and that simply isn’t true. What’s equally as false is the idea that anyone who seeks an affair does so purely because they’re ‘bad’ or ‘immoral’ – there are all sorts of reasons.”

One of those reasons, as one anonymous respondent explains, is the lack of intimacy that develops the longer a marriage goes on: “[I’m] happy with life running smoothly in most respects. I have a comfortable life and I get on with my wife and we are good friends. [However] she is older than me and is no longer interested in a physical relationship and thus the warmth that goes with that. I still want that physicality but not in one night stands – in a long-term old fashioned relationship of getting to know each other.”

And he’s not alone, with a further 30% of men (and 27% of women), claiming that a lack of intimacy and passion is the main driving force behind their desire to have an affair.

Another claims: “Although absolutely lovely, my partner is not enough for me. I need a lot of attention, affection and conversation, and he is not able to meet those needs due to working long hours and being very tired when at home.”

Grant adds: “Maintaining the level of passion and intimacy in a relationship is incredibly difficult. Are we meant to be monogamous by design? The evidence suggests otherwise. It seems to be the case that a once romantic marriage can often develop into something that resembles the relationship between a brother and sister. Some people can live with it. Most can’t.”

However, an affair isn’t always driven by lust. There are, in fact, a plethora of different reasons, with IllicitEncounters.com’s survey finding that 30% of men and 22% of women noted health issues as their main motivation to search for a partner outside of their current relationship.

One respondent noted: “My partner lost her libido 2 years ago as a result of menopause, so there’s no longer any intimacy, sexual innuendo or lovemaking.”

“It might be tough to talk about, but for a lot of men and women of a certain age, things like menopause, erectile dysfunction and a handful of other barriers come into play,” explains Grant.

“It’s unfortunate and unavoidable, but it invariably has a negative impact on the intimate side of one’s relationship.”

Finally, the survey found that, for 20% of men and 25% of women, cheating on their partner was an integral component of keeping their marriage a happy.

“Variety is the spice of life,” says one female respondent. “Having an affair actually keeps me married – i.e. I don’t walk out because I’m bored or unhappy.”

The remainder of the respondents listed miscellaneous reasons for their desire to have an affair.

Adulteresses spend more getting ready for lovers than their husbands!

Women spend more time and money getting ready for an affair than on dates with their husbands.

A new poll conducted by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s largest extra-marital dating site has found that on average women spend six times the amount of time and money preparing for a date with their lover than they do with their spouse having surveyed 2000 of it’s female members.

The findings reveal that the average time spent getting ready to meet their husbands is 30 minutes compared to 3 hours getting ready to meet their lover.

The average amount spent on preparing for a date with their husband was ‘£25 or less’ compared to ‘£150 or more’ for their lover.

Out of those surveyed 72% of women said they go to the Salon to prepare for their affair-meet.

Those who went to the Salon were asked what services they used and the results reveal getting a ‘Blow Dry’ as the top affair preparation with 63% of women opting for this service.

Sara a member on the site said “Why should I put in the effort with my husband when he can barely be bothered to get off his backside to take me anywhere. The most effort he’s ever put in is taking me to the local Indian restaurant we’ve been going to for the last 12 years.
My special friend on the other hand, he pulls out all the stops and takes me to the fanciest places, it would be embarrassing to not dress up – and he’s so complimenting, I wouldn’t want to disappoint him. ”

Claire Page spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said “Can you blame a girl? If you’ve been married for a long time and your spouse doesn’t really take you out very often, or is predictable in doing so – why would you put in that extra care to look good.

On the other hand, your lover is full of surprises, taking you to new and exciting places – of course you’ll spend more time and money looking pruned to perfection. Having an affair makes you feel desirable again so it’s only natural a woman will endeavour to look better than ever!”
