Survey reveals the person your partner is most likely to cheat on you with

We've all most likely had fears over our partner's faithfulness to us.

To an extent, that is just part of human nature, though any sort of obsession with the notion that your partner might be cheating on you is a wholly unhealthy and, frankly, rather futile pursuit.

Of course, the only real remedy to cheating worries is either to trust in your partner whole heartedly, an act which might feel like something of a blind leap of faith to some, or talk to them about your concerns, and hope to reach a happy resolution.

Unfortunately, the rise and rise of social media has merely added to the myriad of platforms on which cheaters can operate, no longer confined to secretive text messages and shadowy meetings in darkened corners. Now, would be cheaters not only have the might of the internet at their hands, but also a myriad of apps to ably adept their misdeeds.

As such, it can be hard to fully put your trust in someone, such is the scope and potential for things to go horribly wrong. This doesn't mean we should abandon our romantic pursuits, but if you are really worried about the idea of your partner cheating on you, a new survey has ascertained once and for all the person your partner is most likely to cheat on you with.

Research involving 5000 people was undertaken by Australian jewellery company Forktip, and the results make for pretty bleak reading if you're in relationship.

While 69.1 percent of women and 59.6 percent of men insisted that they had never had an affair on their partner, the survey makes grim reading for men, who were found to be more likely to cheat than women. 40.4 percent of men revealed that they had cheated on their current partner, compared with just 30.9 percent of women.

Those are surprisingly high numbers in my opinion, but the bleak outlook for romance doesn't stop there, as 52.4 per cent of those surveyed admitted to having cheated on their partner more than once, while 31.2 percent revealed that they were still cheating on their partner now.

Most telling of all, though, is the person with which the unfaithful cheated. The majority of cheaters suggested that they cheated on their partner with someone they didn't previously know, however 23.8 percent said they had cheated with their partner's friend, and 22.4 percent admitted to cheating with a colleague from work.

Just 3.9 percent of those surveyed said they had had an affair with a member of their partner's family.

So there you have it; if your partner cheats on you, it is most likely to be with a complete stranger. However, it might also be with one of your own friends or even a member of your own family, so there's always that to contend with. Our modern culture, it would seem, is not kind to your relationship. Who said romance was dead?
