Should we review our vision of the couple to flourish? In any case, this is what a survey made by Gleeden. The site specializing in adulterous encounters interviewed 4,243 heterosexual women in France, Belgium and Switzerland who said they were in an extramarital relationship at the time of the survey. Gleeden asked them about their level of happiness and how their infidelity contributed or not to their developmentand the results are unequivocal.
85% of cheating women surveyed are happy
“More than 85% of the unfaithful women questioned say they are happy, and even 47% of them say they are very happy”, specifies the survey. While there are many reasons that could make respondents happy, more than nine out of ten said that infidelity contribute to their happiness. For these women, the reasons are diverse. Eight out of 10 women who have been happy with adultery say that cheating makes their life more exciting. 78% of them feel more beautiful and more desirable thanks to adultery and 74% have more self-confidence. Finally, if some women consider that infidelity contributes to their happiness, it is also because more than half of them derive greater sexual satisfaction from it with more orgasms.
We would be more and more tempted to be unfaithful to our partner. But why do some take the step of deception?

Transgression, secrecy and sexuality at the heart of adulterous relationships
“Infidelity can be a source of happiness and fulfillment for many women,” says Solène Paillet, communications director at Gleeden. For some of them, adultery is a way “to help them flourish in their love and sexual life, while preserving their marriage or their relationship”. “Adulterous relationships are also a way of escaping everyday life. It is also most often loves inflamed by transgression, secrecy, which maintain an intense sexuality, ”reports Ghislaine Paris, sexologist and psychotherapist. Of course, it is necessary to remain vigilant to the potential suffering of the people involved, as well as those around them, sometimes inseparable from adultery, recalls Solène Paillet. “It is therefore important to take the time to think about the potential consequences on your couple and to look for satisfactory alternatives before embarking on an extramarital affair,” she believes.
