We don’t often get political here on BWC, but time and experience has taught us that there’s not a lot that you can’t link back to relationships.
And, evidently, IllicitEncounters.com, a UK dating website for married people, are on the same wavelength. Once you sieve through the PR and minutiae of every precisely worded statement, the Budget could lead more people to cheat (so say the aforementioned website).
While the increased investment in transport links and potentially longer school day are sure to have a great socioeconomic impact either way, an extra hour in the day for a lonely housewife to sneak out or a quicker way to travel up and down the country will only ease the time and mobility of an adulterer.
It’s an interesting thought…
Have you ever wanted to know how many adulterers are in your town? Well, now you can (there’s literally an answer for everything it seems).
According to the annual Infidelity Index, the town of High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, is the most adulterous in the UK, with over 2% of its population having affairs.
Or, depending on where you stand, the plaudits should go to the town of Brentwood in Essex, who are officially the “cleanest” town in the UK.
Are we all just innately promiscuous? Maybe, but the married-dating site who commissioned the index have another theory, namely that the economic downturn has left a lot of couples reluctant or financially unable to divorce.
Are you one of them?
