INFIDELITY IS MOST certainly under the spotlight now after the Ashley Madison leak .

Most of the people affected by it were based in the US and UK, where 84% and 76% of people respectively consider an extramarital affair morally unacceptable.

The chart above shows the countries that care most and least about cheating. The figures from the Pew Research Center show most people in Palestinian territories consider an extramarital affair morally unacceptable.

Turkey and the US follow closely behind.

However in France, less than half of people consider cheating on a spouse to be unacceptable.

A 2011 survey found 80% of Irish people think it is never okay to cheat on a partner with a greater number of men than women answering ‘maybe’ or ‘not sure’. Some 40% of Irish people admit to having been unfaithful in a relationship.
