If you live in one of these cities, you're being warned.
Cheaters. You can’t live with them, but you certainly could live without them. There are a lot of factors that influence why a person might choose to step out on their spouse, but did you know that location is one of them? With the rise and fall of websites like Ashley Madison (basically a chatroom for cheaters) that encourage “discreet dating,” some cities are breeding cheaters.
As if dating isn’t hard enough. If you’re married, single or dating in one of these cities… Sorry.
According to a 2013 report in The Boston Globe, the Back Bay neighborhood led the area for cheating via the Internet.
You couldn’t have guessed, judging from that statistic, but adultery is actually against the law in Massachusetts. It can result in up to three years in jail and fines as high as $500. (Imagine having to explain to your cellmate that you’re only there because you couldn’t keep it in your pants.)
Why doesn’t the law seem to be deterring cheaters? These laws are seldomly enforced.
Cheating is a misdemeanor in North Carolina, punishable by a fine or even jail time. Though, with more than three-quarters of Charlotte’s locals identifying themselves as either married or attached, an estimated 2.8% of the area’s population are cheating.
In Houston, almost half of the residents are married, though 70% of those hanging out with married people are single.
Marital infidelity is not against the law in Texas, but adultery can affect a divorce proceeding by placing the blame for the failed marriage on the adulterer. (Details like these come in handy when the courts are deciding property division.)
According to the stats though, people in Houston will have an affair regardless of any possible ramifications.
