No one wants to find out their lover is getting frisky with another person, but sadly it’s very common.
In fact, a recent study found that 45% of men and 21% of women in the UK admit to cheating on their current partner at some point.
People often cheat because they’re dissatisfied with their current relationship, feel neglected, angry or are attracted to someone else.
So how can you work out if your partner is looking elsewhere?
According to Gleeden, jealousy is an intruder in many relationships and upsets the balance between a couple.
More than 8,000 people were surveyed and a whopping 81% admit to having spied on their spouses. While a staggering 62% say they could not forgive their spouse’s infidelity.
Psychoanalyst Alain Krotenberg says jealousy would actually be “a reflection of the unconsciousness desire to deceive the other”.

So being well aware of the desires and temptations which affect us all, the unfaithful would be all the more suspicious and jealous of their spouses.
But it’s not just jealousy you’ll want to look out for.
At least 34% of Brits who have no siblings will have a severe need for attention, which makes them want to have another affair later in life.
