Ever wondered if your other half is cheating? According to IllicitEncounters, you might want to take a closer look at their star sign.
The cheating website for married people analysed data of 180,000 of its members and found that your zodiac may have a lot to say about infidelity.
Capricorns topped the charts with 16% of cheaters belonging to this star sign, closely followed by Libra’s with a staggering 13%.
Want your partner to remain faithful? Dating a Sagittarius secures monogamy with only 4% currently cheating on their partner.
Other star signs less likely to cheat are Aquarius (5%) and Pieces (5%).
Around 2,000 members were also asked what star sign their spouse was and a phenomenal 14% reported that they’re married to a Leo.
Natasha, a Capricorn currently using the site, said: “I’d had it up to here with my husband last year. You see, my birthday is on December 24, and my husband plans me a rubbish – buy one get one free Christmas slash birthday gift – every, single, year! What a way to make you feel appreciated.
“I decided enough was enough, and as an extra special birthday treat to myself – I decided to have an affair. Heck, best decision I’ve ever made, and guess what, the other guy I’m seeing has already promised me a birthday out of this world, and that’s alongside my Christmas present. For once I’m looking forward to the winter break.”
Jennifer, a Libra on the site who is currently having an affair, said “My husband is a Leo. In many ways he’s the perfect partner, father and provider.
“He’s always working hard, he’s great with the kids and he does put in effort into our relationship. Having said that, he drives me completely and utterly insane half the time, he’s a perfectionist, can’t let things go and often obsesses.
“Sometimes it’s nice to just escape from him, away from everything serious and just let my hair down and have fun.”
Jessica, a spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, added: “Capricorns are earth signs who are extremely practical. When a Capricorn is in a marriage that is not making them entirely happy their solution is to go seek that happiness elsewhere.
“Being practical, Capricorns are more than capable of compartmentalising their affair and are great at keeping secrets and are therefore unlikely to get caught cheating.
“Sagittarius’ belong to the fire element, and they are fiercely independent, which may come as a shock that so few Sagittarius’ are unfaithful. Although known to be adventures, risky and sociable, once a Sagittarius makes a commitment, they stick to it.
“A Sagittarius is always on the search for sex, love and relationships, however they are more inclined to escape an unhappy marriage, than look for some extra-marital fun; multi-dating is not their forte.
“Why are Leo’s everywhere being cheated on – isn’t it obvious? Leo’s are passionate star signs, very competitive and ambitious, and naturally extremely stubborn. When your partner always wants to get their own way, it’s only natural that you need to get yours too, elsewhere.”
