Men are more likely than women to forgive their partner after discovering they have been cheating, a new study has found.
The data from Ashley Madison, a dating site for affairs and discreet dating, asked 3,000 of its members.
It also found 85% of female members had been forgiven over a previous affair, while the same could be said for 80% of lads.
When asked if they would forgive a cheating partner, 86% of men said they would, but it was only 82% that’d do the same.
Psychotherapist Lucy Beresford said it was about the perception of relationships between the genders.
She said: “When faced with the idea of cheating, men concentrate on what happened physically.”
Lucy added: “Woman on the other hand are more interested in the emotional impact.
“The fact men appear to be more forgiving could also be because men and women tend to process responses to infidelity differently.
“Men are more interested in knowing about the physical aspects of an affair and find it hard to forgive when sex is actually involved.
“Whereas women are much more affected when they believe there has been an emotional connect to the affair.”
The expert also said women are less likely to give emotional infidelity in an affair relationship.
