The round-up reveals that occupations in IT/engineering (10.6 percent), the financial industry (8.2 percent), education (6.5 percent), health (4.6 percent) and law (3.8 percent), harboring the most cheating husbands.

As for the cheating wives, in May, the site polled 2,865 of their married female members and found that the typical cheating married woman is in her 30s, has been married for five years or less and has a daughter under three years old. She is also likely to be a teacher, in the medical industry, or a stay-at-home mom, according to the website.
