Cheaters suck. Cheaters in games, cheaters in finance, cheaters in romance. Being cheated on sucks worse. As much as I'd like to think I've never been cheated on, I'll chalk it up to blissful unawareness, or simply not caring enough. Most likely the latter.

Ashley Madison - that 'dating' website for married people who want to cheat on their partners - somehow conducted a survey. I'm guessing that if someone is willing to sign up to be a member of a well-known website specifically-created for cheaters, then they'll answer a survey.

The #1 career for unfaithful husbands? Trade work (plumbing, welding, etc). You'd think it would be entertainment (musicians) or finance (came in at #5), but men of the trades cheat the most, followed by Internet Technologies (I.T.), Entrepreneurs, Retail/Hospitality, and Finance. Yes, even the nerds (I.T.) like extracurricular friskiness.

The top career for cheating wives? The Medical Field (like doctors and nurses); followed by Education, Finance, Social Work, and Politics.

Use this information as you wish. The men might just be claiming to be plumbers for the porn fantasy.
