I couldn’t help it baby, it’s in my genes

There may be a genetic component to infidelity, says a professor at the Twin Research Unit at St. Thomas’ Hospital, London. This is based on the fact that if one twin exhibits infidelity, the other twin strays 55% of the time. In the general population, the number is 23%. The tendency to remain faithful is a component of personality, the scientist elaborates, which is governed both by a number of genes and societal factors.

they're basing this on 5%? sounds weak if you ask me. However, I do believe that everyone has the inherent tendency to commit adultery... ...I think some call that total depravity of the human. thanks for your blog.

If my husband strayed, it wouldn't be a question of whether "IT" was in his "genes", because I would cut "IT" off and it would no longer be in his "jeans" to stray around with.

Infidelity is a crock. If you really love someone you would never stray.

I tend to agree it may be genetic cause in my X's family there were a line of straying men. Then of course the X strayed more than once. I should have used dcy's advice and done the Lorena Bobbit thing. It would no longer be a problem.
