    I’m going into marriage completely devoted to my to-be husband and he to me, so I don’t even want to think about this! :-/

    Other. People who lack integrity and maturity are more likely to cheat.

    @worldtraveler:  +1

    It’s not a male/female thing that indicates whether you’re more likely to cheat, it’s your state of mind and maturity.

    @worldtraveler:  Yup. This.

    I will say that bachelor parties are more likely to have a sex industry worker present, and bachelorette parties are more likely to be approached by flirty strangers. But I don’t think gender plays a role in likelihood to cheat.

    I don’t think cheating is related to gender, I think it’s related to character, willpower, and morals as in those who do not posess those qualities will cheat.

    Men say women are more likely to cheat and Women say Men are more likely to cheat…. It all depends who you ask. My DH and I disagree on the same thing…. He’s been the “victim” of women cheaters so thats what he notices… while he’s not going to notice men cheating as much because generally it doesn’t effect him…. but a man cheater to me effects me more because even if i’m not the victim – i seriously feel for their wife or girlfriend who is.

    I think in all reality its probably even but we tend to think the opposite sex is more likely to cheat… thats my theory anyway.

    @Eckle:  Agreed.

    I do not think that this is gender specific I think it’s related to a person’s morality.

    @prahajess:  Why does he think that?


    I think overall it has to do with integrity and character but also consider this:

    Women are more turned on by emotional connections and Men are more visual.  I think the chances of a woman making an emotional connection at her bachelorette party are less than the chance of a man seeing an attractive woman at his bachelor party.

    I also voted other. It is maturity, not gender, that has an impact on cheating.

    Neither, if both are happy and in love with their partner they’re about to marry!
