The Sexual Economics Of Marriage

September 2, 2013 in Daily Bulletin

In an article about “things your spouse won’t tell you” Catey Hill provided some fascinating insights into marriage:

  • 15% of married Americans admit to having had an extramarital affair. Husbands spend twice as much on holiday gifts for their mistresses than their wives.
  • Half of all men and the majority of women would marry somebody for their money – which is defined as having more than $1.5 million. This becomes even more likely as men hit their 40s and women hit their 30s.
  • A quarter of young couples lie about how much money they make – so that they have some extra cash for secret hobbies and activities.
  • Which is a pity since almost a quarter of Americans say that honesty about money is more important than honesty about having had an affair.
