Skip to comments.Guys more likely to cheat on high-earning women

Baffled by how Jesse James could have cheated on his superstar wife, Sandra Bullock ? Or why Eric Benet stepped out on Halle Berry (Halle Berry!)?
A new study may help explain it. Men who earn significantly less than their female partners, or who earn nothing, are far more likely to cheat than those in relationships where incomes are more or less equal, the study found.
In fact, men who were completely dependent on their partner's income were five times more likely to cheat than men who contributed an equal amount of money to the relationship, according to research presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association.
Youd think such men wouldnt want to risk their meal ticket. But lower-earning men may be self-medicating their inner macho guy, says Cornell University sociology graduate student Christin Munsch, who conducted the study.

Could be that high-earning women seek out men with active trouser snakes what tend to wander off the reservation.
Since both me and my wife work, we’re just too danged tired for anyone else.
Simple case of self preservation.
It’s because their weenie little egos just can’t take it
That’s cuz the wife is out working her ass off, while the feller is home with too much time on his hands.
Interesting theory - it would mean the women picked the men as part of the domination attitude that enabled them to make the big money in the first place, which they then translated into being able to dominate an otherwise undominatable man - who then fought back by proving they couldn't be controlled. So the whole thing is a power fight.
But - gasp - that would mean the woman isn't pure, noble, heart-driven, honest, patient, kind, mature, excellent, perfect and always right. Nah, it'll never fly. Find another theory - the power women will tell you when you get one that is acceptable.
Isn't that redundant?
If I found a rich chic, I would NEVER cheat on her. You can take that to the bank.
I’m 39. Any takers?
There, I fixed it.
P’m always amazed and amused at so many erstwhile conservative women of FReeperdom turning into slavering Patricia Ireland clones on threads such as this one.
Jesse James was hardly a souch in the financial department.
If a person’s not needed, why care what you do?
I think it’s one reason why abortion has screwed everything up. What’s a guy good for if he can throw away anything that gets in his way? And when you create a generation of men that thinks that way - like the welfare class - why should these guys care what they do? Why NOT screw around? Why NOT do drugs? Why NOT join gangs or engage in violence?
Communism wants everybody to be provided for no matter what choices they make. IOW, a person’s choices make absolutely no difference to the outcomes for them and those around them.
It’s a recipe for a person to lose their whole vitality and will to live. If nothing matters, then what are we even here for?
That’s why communism is a downward spiral. We’re meant to have a vocation, a place in life. When that’s gone, why not just go rot in the corner somewhere? Nobody needs you anyway?
People are not meant to be moochers, and when they are it makes them crazy.
I dunno. I think the business was sumping
Easy to explain.
Women that are driven to earn big bucks and go after careers do so because they look down on women that let men take care of them financially. Then when these women get a man that makes less than they do, they naturally start looking down on the man same way they already do with women.
Men can’t live like that.
If he feels like his woman isn’t impressed, eventually he will bump into a woman that IS impressed with him and one thing leads to another.
simple human nature.
Sure, I’ll take her. What’s she worth?
I believe the idea was to convey that 100 Trillion Zimbabwe dollars was the equivalent value of 3 rocks.
LOL!! Me not her. My last g-friend was a Phd candidate in Social Work. I will never date a liberal woman again. Ever! The earning potential was there but she was the bitch from hell. I would take a conservative trailer dweller anyday. At least for sanity sakes.
LOL!! If she was not a liberal, yes.
I’ve never actively pursued conservative women, but if I did, I wouldn’t be single today. Nothing like a wretched, emotional, nonsense talking liberal women.
I’d rather be poor and happy.
Some how politics don’t get involved until WAY.......later....... LoL!
YOu betchya. I’ll take the whole set!
Thars gonna be boot skootin involved.
Kin ya dance?
Seriously, rich/poor, liberal/conservative, breadwinner/or not, **** happens.
Opposites have attracted from the dawn of time.
But it takes chemistry and respect to make glue.
I know I got what it takes, but it's rough out there I tell ya... LoL
If I had the whole set, there’d be no time for dancing.
“Until way later”
I can tell in two minutes. I just don’t know why I’m a glutton for punishment... Conservative women are hard to find...
Ancient Proverb: Better to live on the corner of a roof than in a large mansion with a contentious woman. (The wisdom of this proverb I can confirm through first-hand experience.)
I didn’t say you couldn’t tell. LoL
I just meant it doesn’t get the time of day until way... later.
She is aware as well. This leads to the infamous “make up sex” when the feud finally surfaces.
Everyone knows what’s going on.
Whats usually missing is respect.
That is when the breakup happens.
“Baffled by how Jesse James could have cheated on his superstar wife, Sandra Bullock ? Or why Eric Benet stepped out on Halle Berry (Halle Berry!)?”
No matter how hot she is, somewhere there’s a guy who’s tired of putting up with her sh!t. I know this from experience. Of couese, in Halle Berry’s case it might take a little longer...
LOL!! I couldn’t have said it better...
Its got to suck to live in a mansion and be alone too.
I have seen it.
It beats living in a trailer alone but it sucks
If I understood the sexes I would write a book on it.
Heck I am a conservative and no one else understands it so I should probably write a book on it regardless. LoL
I will toss in some “feeling” and “spiritual” words to keep it interesting for the gals and the liberal men.
Yeah thats the ticket!
Aight! I’m off to read up on Reiki , 2nd Chakras!
Maybe I can discover why Women are from Venus and Men Are from Mars in the process of my research.
I always wondered why Men got the scary planet.
This is serious stuff here. I’ll get back to you all when I have a draft :)
My guess would be that a lot of these men have more free time than average.
Use this as your template, and you'll do fine!
I would hate plagiarize.
Aw hell who am I kidding?
There is nothing new under the sun!
Best scene in the movie.
Jesse James was just a jerk. He did not cheat on Sandra because of money. He had plenty himself. He is just an a$$!
Took me 46 years to find mine, so there is hope.
Yeah u rite sista!
