More money, more problems

Recent research suggests that "the more a man depends on his female partner’s paycheck, the better the chances he will cheat," according to the NY Times.

Things get worse. Consider this tidbit from the article:

And, in a cruel twist for women, men who earn significantly more than their female partners are also more likely to cheat.

The safety zone, apparently, is when women make 75 percent of what men earn, which sounds suspiciously like the national average of women’s salaries relative to men’s.

The piece reminds readers that people aren't always completely honest even in anonymous surveys about sex and relationships.

Yet somehow, I've still resurrected my visions of living as a hermit in Belize.
