I think this is crazy. Cheating has nothing to do with your profession. I believe it has everything to do with your personality.

Nope. We discuss any potential interest in others openly, there is no need to cheat.

This is funny.  I think cheating has to do with your relationship and mental state.

@michiru4ever:  Well yes, obviously. But I don’t think cheating has to do with your career. Being in education does not mean you’ll go cheat. Being unhappy in your marriage and unhappy with yourself has everything to do with cheating.

I think it is possible.  Minus the engineer and maybe educator the other professions see and meet a lot of people in their work lives. So I think that just gives them more interaction with someone who is attractive whereas an educator see other teachers everyday, they rarely change unless its yearly.

LOL really? lawyers spend more time at work (the ones who actually go into the firm) and meet more different people than engineers and they’re that much less likely to cheat? Profession/career does not determine your likelihood of cheating. Geez.

For the record, Darling Husband and I are both engineers. Looks like our marriage is most likely not going to work out *eyeroll*

Fiance is an engineer.  I’m going to pretend this doesn’t exist 😉

I’m surprised law enforcement wasn’t on this list? I feel like popular culture has always told me policemen are the philanderers. (Not that I believe it.)

Nope. My Darling Husband works in a farm town with a bunch of old guys. The only females he ever interacts with are his friend’s wives, and it would never occur for him to use his computer for anything besides looking up new guitar pieces he wants to learn, haha. Not saying a different profession or female friends would make him more likely to cheat, just that I have zero concerns.

@Birdee106:  Being in a certain career certainly doesn’t cause certain people to cheat. However, your personality does affect what career you go into, and your career does have an effect on who you meet and your opportunities to cheat if you already have a cheating personality.  

The studies just report what they find, and there does appear to be more of some careers.  For example, the study seems to say that women who stay home are more likely to cheat.  That doesnt mean that stay at home moms are terrible.  It just means that they have more opportunties to act out on a preexisting cheating personality.  contrast that with a cheating personality that works 70 hours a week. She probably barely has time to sleep and therefore wil not act out on her cheating personality.
