Women catch up to men in infidelity

Recent research shows that women are having more extra marital affairs these days. In fact wife affairs rose almost 40 percent in the last 20 years. Why? Although we like to think it has to do with sex drive this is not the case. According to Daniel Bergner author of, “What do Women Want?” women’s sex drives are just as powerful as men’s but have been repressed by thousands of years of male-dominated culture. This is really no big surprise to me. The reason men have had affairs all along is because they could. They were free to do so with few consequences.  Think Bill Clinton. In this day, it seems that more women can afford to take the chance since they now have higher incomes and more job prospects. Hmmm. [News Source: Bloomberg]
