  1. I’d want to complain more about the tone of the article. Why is it okay for men to cheat, but not for women? Why can’t we admit that both partners can cheat, and put their behaviour on equal footing?

    I didn’t like the way they listed the famous (in Britain, anyways) women who had publicly admitted to affairs, as if it were something particularly unusual that needed explanation. I mean, I don’t think they would’ve written this article the same way, if the study had been about men and only men.

    Of course people will quote this as an excuse for their deviant behaviour. But that’s nothing new. Before these studies I’m sure “God will forgive me, so you should too” was probably high in the caught-being-unfaithful charts.
