A study has discovered educated women are 70 per cent more likely to have an affair, whilst men who have a Doctorate or other degree are 65 per cent more inclined to stray from their partner.
Research carried out by the dating site VictoriaMilan has found females who have attended secondary school, college, and have obtained an Undergraduate or Masters degree are more likely to stray from their partners, whilst 65 per cent of men are more likely to enjoy a romp with someone other than their loved one.
The survey has also revealed almost 40 per cent of men and women have openly admitted to being unfaithful whilst in a relationship.
The study has claimed men and women who have gained a Doctorate, or failed to pass their exams in secondary school are least likely to cheat.
The CEO of VictoriaMilan, Sigurd Vedal, said: “People with university credentials are the ones most likely to have an affair and those with limited education are the most faithful.”
