In addition, recent research finds that differences in gender may possibly be explained by other mechanisms including power and sensations seeking.For example, one study found that some women in more financially independent and higher positions of power, were also more likely to be more unfaithful to their partners.Studies suggest around 30–40% of unmarried relationships and 18–20% of marriages see at least one incident of sexual infidelity.Rates of infidelity among women are thought to increase with age.A study published in 2002 suggested there may be sex differences in jealousy.
Frequencies as high as 30% are sometimes assumed in the media, but research Such studies show that covert illegitimacy is in fact less than 10% among the sampled African populations, less than 5% among the sampled Native American and Polynesian populations, less than 2% of the sampled Middle Eastern population, and generally 1–2% among European samples.
In one study, rates were higher in more recent marriages, compared with previous generations; men were found to be only "somewhat" more likely than women to engage in infidelity, with rates for both sexes becoming increasingly similar.
Another study found that the likelihood for women to be involved in infidelity reached a peak in the seventh year of their marriage and then declined afterwards; whereas for married men, the longer they were in relationships, the less likely they were to engage in infidelity, except for the eighteenth year of marriage, at which point the chance that men will engage in infidelity increases.
Depending on the context, men and women can experience social consequences if their act of infidelity becomes public.
The form and extent of these consequences are often dependent on the gender of the unfaithful person.
In marital relationships, exclusivity expectations are commonly assumed, although they are not always met.
