Hide ya husbands! Hide ya wives! Count yourself lucky if you’re happy with your marriage today, because studies show that today is the day most folks get their creep on.
Via UK DailyMail reports:
Today is the day people are most likely to start an affair – and the tensions of the Christmas period are partly to blame.
Traffic on married dating websites shoots up by 25 per cent on 7 January, new research has revealed.
What’s more, Christmas tension isn’t the only factor leading people astray, with the survey also pinpointing Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D) – a psychological condition that can lead to depression – as one of the root causes of adultery. Effects can include withdrawing from husbands and wives, as well as feeling dissatisfied with life.
‘The beginning of the year is seen by many people as a new dawn and a time to start afresh,’ says Marilyn Stowe, Senior Partner at Stowe Family Law – the UK’s largest family law firm.
‘The effect of the December break shouldn’t be underestimated either. When there are already difficulties within a household, Christmas can become an exhausting, miserable slog, which ratchets the pressure up to unbearable levels.
‘Come January, something has to give.’
As a result, many look outside their relationships for a fling or distraction to take their mind off marital problems.
SMH! Who knew Seasonal Affective Disorder could be the blame for folks trying to act like Stevie J.
