Very possible. Is there a point?
Well, maybe it’s because they’re not home as often as other married men and must do what they can to find fulfillment.
On Veteran's days of all day...F them
Not surprising as the job requires you to be away from your spouse for months at a time.
Absence does not make the heart grow fonder and it makes another portion of your anatomy very lonely.
Kilroy was here in more ways than others.
The Obama administration is twice as likely to cover up what went on at Benghazi as most people want to believe.
Military members and Veterans are held in the top three of highly regarded professions, while journalists, like this particular creature, are held in the bottom three, along with politicians, like the ones willing to use this stupid Petreaus thing to cover up what far-reaching horrible thing happened in and around Benghazi.
Journalists are five times more likely to ditch Veterans on Veterans Day as their drug addled readers and viewers, who vote and who vote in politicians who ditch the military) will ever believe.
Happy Veterans Day.
Don’t believe one word of what te media says about Vets and the military. not one word, from these ingrates whose freedom of the press they owe to every one of those who serve.
Good reason to NOT have women side-by-side with men in the military. No matter who you are, if you are away from home for long periods of time there is the temptation to “love the one you’re with”.
Now, veterans cheat on their spouses, why, because Gen. Petraus did so but resigned
I’d like to see the statistics for other professions where the spouses are apart for years at a time. I bet the military are more disciplined than any other line of work would be in that circumstance, especially when you take into account the demographics of the military.
Will that be the next journalistic piece from The Atlantic?
No doubt the study consisted of gay men and women. What’s next on the “smear American morals” campaign....
Those of us who have served know perfectly well the incredible strains duty places on family life. It goes with the territory. There's a reason "Navy Wife" or "Army Brat" have entered the vernacular.
I also note the base data are two decades old. It would be interesting to learn what, if any, recommendations the sociologists have to address the issue or if they even consider it worth addressing. That, alas, appears to be absent from the story. Curious.
Its Veterans day — a day to honor them, not focus on and highlight the shortcomings that affect all humans, not just military people.
My dad never cheated. He got married after his tour was done and he finished his commitment to his country. He is still married today and never strayed on mom.
“Non-veterans twice as dishonest about marital infidelity as veterans”
More anti-American propaganda from liberals who pretend to love the military but really hate it. These are the same people, or are the indoctrinated children of the same people, who used to call my dad and other Vietnam vets “baby killers”, etc. They don’t fool me for one moment. I despise these people.
Could it be that either spouse that is away from their spouse would be more likely to stray? Of course military folks are much more likely to be estranged from their spouse for long periods of time - could that really have an effect?
This is not any kind of accurate poll until it takes into account way too many other folks.
My guess is that Veterans are not more likely to stray if compared to civilians that are away from their spouses for any length of time.
Just another poll trying to tear down both family and military service.
This gives pseudoscience a bad name.
