(Atlanta, GA) — A new study shows men are more likely to cheat if they depend on their female partners for money. The research also shows the opposite is true for women — they’re less likely to cheat if they’re financially dependent on their partners. The study finds that men who were completely dependent on the income of their female partner were five times more likely to cheat than men who contributed an equal share of money to a relationship. Researchers believe cheating could be a way for men to cope with the threat to their gender identity when they’re not the breadwinners. The study was presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association in Atlanta.
