Worcester News: Almost one in ten women in the West Midlands have been cheated on Almost one in ten women in the West Midlands have been cheated on

ALMOST one in ten women in the West Midlands have been cheated on by their partners, with 37-year-old nurses the most likely to discover their partners have been unfaithful.

A survey by discount website VoucherCodesPro.co.uk found that nine per cent of women in the region have been victims of an affair – the fourth highest in the country.

The region was behind the South East and Scotland with the North East topping the survey where a whopping 22 per cent of women – more than one in five – saying they had been cheated on.

The survey also found the average age women were cheated on was 37, with nurses the most likely to find their husband, partner or boyfriend had been unfaithful, followed by teachers or school workers, stay-at-home mothers, retail workers and receptionists.

George Charles from VoucherCodesPro.co.uk said he was surprised to discover younger women were not the most at risk of being cheated on.

“Whilst it is absolutely no excuse, it is possible that as a result of their long working hours and regular overnight shifts, nurses may be more prone to having a partner that strays.”

The survey also found 34 per cent of women polled confessed they were still in a relationship with a partner that had previously cheated on them, with 59 per cent believing they would never hurt them in that way again.

The headline is misleading. It should read: 'Almost one in ten women in the West Midlands who use VoucherCodesPro.co.u
k, and completed the survey have been cheated on". How many women use this website, and how many completed the survey? Put that into context with the total female population and you may get some perspective. The figures may be much higher, they may be much lower. And in the interests in balance were they also asked if they had cheated themselves? This is nothing but free advertising for this site. I'll bet they circulated this 'research' to every local paper in the country. How very clever of them.

And of course it does not take into account those who don't know they've been cheated on or those who just think they may have been. I'd like to know what qualifications George Charles has which enable him to ask questions and then interpret them and present them as facts. Is he a statistician, a sociologist, a psychotherapist? If I was a 37 year old nurse I would be furious at the 'conclusions' he has come to, and the 'reasons' he has put forward. It's patronising and downright dangerous to speculate wildly on something which is a serious and possibly life changing experience to some people. I hope no-one takes it seriously. It's idiotic drivel, and should be treated as such.
