According to a survey, women cheated on their spouses to escape unhappiness, ignorance, neglect in marriage and husbands' non-involvement in household chores.



Seven out of 10 women in India cheat on their husbands because they do not take part in domestic chores, according to a survey by dating app Gleeden.

A similar percentage of women turned unfaithful because their marriage had become monotonous.

The findings were revealed as a part of the survey titled 'Why do women commit adultery' which was conducted by Gleeden across metros like Bengaluru, Mumbai and Kolkata, which has over 5 lakh users in India.

Among Indian Gleeden users, 20 per cent men and 13 per cent women admitted that they have (at some point) cheated on their spouses.

According to the survey, women cheated on their spouses to escape unhappiness, ignorance, neglect in marriage and husbands' non-involvement in household chores.

Other interesting findings include these:

Nearly 48 per cent Indian women who decide to have an extramarital affair, prefer to meet men on extramarital dating sites because they offer safety, privacy and security that is absent in real life.

Homosexual people trapped in traditional marriages also found same-sex partners in growing numbers.

Nearly 77 per cent of Indian women who chose to cheat on their husbands reasoned that their marriage had become monotonous and finding a partner outside marriage allowed them to add excitement to their lives.
