Are You Part Of the Statistics Of Infidelity? “A Fair To Remember” – San Diego County’s Del Mar Fair 2015. The theme for that year commemorates the celebration of world fairs and Balboa Park. I was at the Fair for the 4th of July. Crowded, noisy, but very Americana especially when the fireworks were displayed. Whenever I see fireworks on the 4th of July I feel a sense of Nostalgia knowing people across the Country are looking up at the sky viewing similar patterns of lights and feeling a sense of pride for our Country.
This year’s title theme reminded me of an old classic film entitled “An Affair To Remember” starring Deborah Kerr and Cary Grant. About a women and man who meet during a cruise, fall in love and plan to meet at the top of the Empire State Building in New York City taking 6 months apart to take the time to get their lives in order and end the relationships they are currently involved in so they can be together. As lovely as that story turned out I was thinking among the crowds at this gathering and at many other gatherings of like kind people don’t always have happy endings when it comes to their affair partner or “lovers.”
Infidelity Statistics show from the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy dated April 8, 2015:
70% of marriages that experience affairs do NOT end in divorce. When people leave their marriage for their affair, the new relationship rarely survives (3 to 7% survive).
1. Men who admit to committing infidelity in any relationship they’ve had – 57%
2. Women who admit to committing infidelity in any relationship they’ve had – 54%
3. Marriages where one or both spouses admit to either physical or emotional – 41%
