Is My Hubby, a Stay-at-Home Dad, More Likely to Cheat?

Guest blogger Charlotte:Men who are financially dependent on their wives and live-in girlfriends are five times more likely to cheat than those who make the same amount of money, according to a recent study.

husband cheating

Does this mean that my husband -- who's a stay-at-home dad -- is more likely to cheat?!

The study found that because being a stay-at-home dad can challenge "the traditional notion of men as breadwinners," some men may feel the need to prove their manliness by cheating.

I for one have never worried about my husband cheating on me. We love each other deeply and are too committed to our family to cheat ... or so I believe. But he is alone the entire time our kids are at school -- so am I just being naive about the risks? What do you think?

As a stay at home dad I can’t imagine that the fact that I’m at home would lead me to cheat on my wife. I can imagine that if a man is at home because he’s lost his job, and can’t find another one, and has his self worth tied up in being the breadwinner, that he might cheat. But that comes from low self esteem, not being a stay at home dad.
From a purely cynical view, I love being at home, and have for the past 7 years, why would I want to screw that up?

I think you should trust your spouse, not some “recent study.”

I just want to know: When is MomLogic going to stop writing stupid things about fathers?

BTW, you should read this blog entry: http://daddy-dialectic.blogspot.com/2010/08/fourteen-points-what-sahd-wants-moms-to.html

See especially points number #1, #2, and #4.

I don’t agree with this study. From personal experience—-no, I didn’t cheat—-I had many more “opportunities” to cheat when I was working a regular job.
Being a stay home dad is—to me—too tiring to have any room for cheating. I will note, however, that my daughter is not yet in school full-time as she is 4.

Ken

I think the study you’re talking about looked at couples between 22 to 28. So I don’t think it says anything about all the great stay-at-home dads out there. I think it’s more about which young guys are irresponsible and into partying.

I dont really know what youre talking about here. This cant be the only way to think about this can it? It seems like you know a lot about the subject, so why not explore it more? Make it more accessible to everyone else who may not agree with you? Youd get a lot more people behind this if you just stopped making general statements.

this is a smart site. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses. Youve got a design here thats not too flashy, but makes a statement as big as what youre saying. Great job, indeed.

If a man does not make new acquaintances as he advances through life, he will soon find himself alone. A man should keep his friendships in constant repair.

Let me not be understood as saying that there are no bad laws, nor that grievances may not arise for the redress of which no legal provisions have been made. I mean to say no such thing. But I do mean to say that although bad laws, if they exist, should be repealed as soon as possible, still, while they continue in force, for the sake of example they should be religiously observed.
