Victoria Milan has an interesting blog site, perfect for those who have felt the heart break of an extra-martial affair. I contacted Victoria only recently, to find out that she had been doing alot of work in surveying the websites members.
The results were quite interesting
More than a quarter of men and women surveyed said they would have a desire to level the playing field if they discovered their partner was cheating, with an amazing division on who the recipient of the revenge would be. Almost 80% of women would try to get back at their partner, while nearly 90% of men would direct their anger towards their partner’s lover.
I know this to be true from my own clinical work with couples in Las Vegas over the last few years. Even though the couples would come into the clinic wanting to restore the relationship, the first natural instinctive thoughts are for revenge to the unfaithful partner.
The survey asked about the types of revenge they would inflict:
Almost a quarter of women will destroy something their partner cares about – expect smashed windscreens and damage to your paintwork, gentlemen. 23% said they would level the playing field by having an affair of their own, and 19% said they would find the mistress and make trouble for her.
Men on the other hand are set on causing trouble for their partner’s lover, with 64% making it their mission to seek and destroy the object of their lady’s affections. 22% said they would leave their cheating partner immediately and 9% said they would embark on an adulterous adventure of their own to get revenge.
