Tiger Woods and his fondness for 20-something-year-old fame cravers, has brought back the oft-held debate about male fidelity. At the writing of this posting, Tigerâ€™s marriage seems to still be alive even if damaged. No moving trucks have been to his home.
Tiger is a professional golfer with a wife and two small children. Perhaps his looks donâ€™t turn heads exactly, but I donâ€™t know anyone who finds him to be repulsive. Oh yeah, heâ€™s also the first billionaire athlete. That last part seems to be what really heats up the fidelity debate. â€œA man is only as faithful as his options.â€ We hear that all the time, right?Â Well, if thatâ€™s true then any and every professional athlete (even golfers!) has a pass to cheat. They have more options than anybody, so if you follow that line of thinking, women who marry them just have to accept that as a part of life.
Besides money and fame, what about attractiveness? Extraordinarily handsome men (or even just extraordinarily charming ones) have a plethora of options as well. Subconsciously, perhaps women act on the belief that handsome men are more likely to cheat. A Journal of Family Psychology study that was featured on livescience.com found that marriages in which the wife was better looking than the husband were more positive and supportive matches than other types of couples. Hmmmm
I have a couple ideas about this, but Iâ€™d much rather hear from you first. So, what say you, Get â€˜Em Girls? If your partner cheated would his wealth or looks at all factor into whether or not you stayed? Do you believe that wealthier or more handsome men cheat more often?
