A new study found that women who are the primary breadwinners in the home are more likely to have a cheating husband.
It found that men who are financially dependent on their wives had about a 15 percent chance of cheating. Those women who earn 100 percent of the family’s income are least likely to stray.
But–it’s only a 5 percent chance for women whose husbands are the breadwinners.
The author of the study says for an economically dependent man, infidelity could be an attempt to restore relationship equity.
