All the people with trust issues who fear infidelity can relax because we found 10 least adulterous countries in the world.
Have you ever been cheated by the person you love and felt really depressing? According to the statistics, the chances are that you have probably been because 30% to 60% of married men in the U.S. will cheat on their wives at some point during their marriage. This is a sad fact and one that is not very likely to change anytime soon.
As it turns out, monogamy is very difficult to achieve for many people. Of course, it’s not difficult for everyone, and a great number of people really commit to the person they’re with. But many consider that monogamy is simply not natural and should not be something a person strives to achieve. It is safe to assume that men are more likely to think that than women because as we all know, women have more romantic ideas of relationships which include being faithful.
We wrote about 10 countries with most faithful husbands in our previous article, and we talked about the problem that adultery represents and how it affects a person’s feelings as well as their behavior. Of course, not everyone considers infidelity to be such a huge problem and just because their partner cheated on them that does not mean they will end things with them. But to be fair, those people usually cheat too, or are simply too afraid to be alone and cannot terminate things so easily.
What makes people cheat anyway? Is it boredom? Is it because they cannot commit to being with one person only? I really wish there was a simple answer to this question, but I guess that a person rarely thinks about the consequences of their actions when it comes to cheating. They meet someone whom they start to like and feel comfortable around, and pretty soon things go too far. Based on the experiences of people I know who have cheated on their partners, the decision to cheat is usually not meant for the purpose of hurting the other person. Very often, they do it spontaneously without having any relationship problems whatsoever. All the social media makes it even easier to cheat, and there are also other kinds of cheating that don’t necessarily include having sex with someone else. Emotional infidelity is perhaps even worse, and it can cause so much more pain because it’s not just a one-time thing. It’s definitely worse the cheater falls in love with someone else while being with you, there’s no argument there. But the point of view on adultery varies from country to country. In some societies, it’s perfectly acceptable to cheat with a prostitute, and it’s not even considered cheating while in others it’s a pretty big deal. It’s interesting that a lot of people don’t consider kissing with someone else to be cheating too, so it is not very easy to define these things.
So are people capable of being faithful at all? They certainly are, and we must believe that otherwise, it’s going to be pretty tough maintaining a relationship. Not everyone cheats, and we need to learn to accept that and trust people. Being suspicious all the time is impossible. It will drive you crazy eventually, and you can destroy the relationship before he or she even thought about cheating. So the best thing to do is try to relax and read our list.
We wanted to find least cheating country in the world so that we can give you some kind of hope. As we have already said, not all countries regard infidelity the same way, and while some may think it’s not the worst thing in the world, others pay a high price for it. Countries in the Middle East are known to be the strictest when it comes to cheating where, according to the Sharia law, a man or woman who committed adultery is punished by death. It doesn’t mean that adultery doesn’t happen in these countries, it’s just that no one would admit doing it. On the other hand, we have countries that don’t have any problems with cheating, and they do it on a regular basis. Examples of such countries are Nigeria and Colombia, where it looks like it’s very difficult to maintain monogamy. According to a survey, 62% of women in Nigeria admitted being unfaithful to their husbands, and what’s interesting, in this country people even prefer the term “sexual networking” rather than cheating. Yes, we were surprised too. So according to this, maybe Nigeria wouldn’t actually be the best country to marry a woman (we’re joking, of course). The French did badly too, with only 47% of people thinking that cheating is wrong.
But according to a book “ Lust in Translation,“ people around the world actually care about cheating and consider it to be unacceptable. Well, at least a great part of them. As I have pointed out earlier, we must keep an open mind when it comes to any official data regarding cheating. We read various articles and discussions on the topic, and we relied on The Journal’s chart to compile a list of least adulterous countries in the world.
