In other stats today, the best way to ensure fidelity: financial interdependence..?
A study by a Cornell sociologist shows that men who earn less than their partners are twice as likely to cheat than are women who earn less than their partners. The author concludes that relationships in which both partners have similar earnings are the least likely to suffer from the appeal of “Bonafied” lovers.
From the report, it seems the study focused on heterosexual relationships, but I’d like to see if the same tends to hold true in other relationships.
Also, most interestingly, the study concludes that attending the free Chromeo concert at the Williamsburg Waterfront Park on August 22nd has 0% likelihood of improving a couple’s relationship in the long run. ”But,” the author says, “a free Chromeo concert could give you that spark you need to get by for another week or so.”
JK about the last paragraph’s “conclusions”… but seriously, go to the concert. It’s Chromeo. It’s free.
