What the hell? Is this a serious thought or is this one of those times when you are being silly?

Make DoD civilians go away. They have unions and that makes it more difficult to reprimand them or fire them. I remember in technical training we had a civilian that would try to get female students to wear his gloves to keep them warm because he was a creeper. People like that deserve to be fired and not protected by a union.

It's so cute how you have constructed unions to be your boogeyman scapegoats.

lol, tell that to the crack whores and lowlives who'd blow your cock and let you put it in their pooper for another fix. I'd say their "chances" to cheat are as good (if not better) as someone with considerable wealth.

You make one error PJ. Most humans are primitive, they only act how their impulses tell them. If they can they will do it and money helps in making people think they can do more than they otherwise would. Having mistresses is quite common among the wealthy.

Agreed. I've known some fairly wealthy couples that were split asunder by infidelity. And no matter how high someone gets, they're still only human.

This is why you either invest in Omacron to become a cyborg robot immortal death machine of madness, or Anansi to attain godhood. Or both, like me. #whiteprivilege.

I already have a mechanical pancreas (well, an insulin pump, so close enough). The first step of many.

Please. The obvious answer is to take all of the virgins out of the US jails and prisons, and than tie them screaming to an altar and sacrifice them to Set to be granted dark powers from beyond and become a demon in human form.

No, because without being able to feel or taste, to enjoy life, what good is immortality without pleasure?

I didn't mean they never did. I said most of them don't. I just meant that marital problems are less likely to happen the higher you rise the income ladder. Divorce rates are highest for people in poverty and it goes down when income levels rise. The idea that rich people are more likely to cheat is false. I do think higher incomes generally means people will show more prudence with not only just money but their relationships as well. I definitely don't think they are less ethical than lower income people.

Why, I thought you didn't like the social sciences

However, the study you linked doesn't discuss infidelity, at least not as far as I can tell. Am I missing something? In fact, it seems to say that low-income and high-income couples expect similar things and hold similar values in regards to relationships.

However, the study says that low-income families are more adversely affected by problems like "economic and social issues such as money problems, drinking, and drug use." While such problems can also exist in higher income brackets, they have more security. A rich person with a drinking problem has more access to treatment.

I'm not sure that prudence with money necessarily translates into prudence in other areas. People tend to compartmentalize. While I wouldn't say that the rich are more likely to cheat (since that would assume some correlation between wealth and infidelity), I don't think they're necessarily less likely.

Also, getting information on infidelity is pretty difficult since it's one of those things people aren't inclined to be honest about.

I don't think a good study could be conducted on whether or not the rich cheat less or more. I just wanted to point out that they divorce less which is more of a unambiguous thing. When I pointed out how I didn't like how powerful people cheat on their wives Noitora responded with "So you hate rich people?" I don't think it is more common at the higher income levels and that it even might be less common. I suppose it segues into whether or not people that make money in a capitalistic society are also ethical.

Ah, okay. I don't really think that wealth and ethics have much to do with each other. Plus, there's no one who's consistently ethical on everything; someone might be extremely ethical when it comes to family issues, but less so in business issues. Defining "ethical" is itself pretty complicated.

But that's just my opinion.

How about we just say marital fidelity then? Is that more specific?

Sure, but the study only focused on the frequency of divorce. Divorce can be caused by many different factors, which may or may not have anything to do with infidelity.

I know that. People don't even have to divorce after cheating. I just wanted to link something that is more easily tracked that had to do with marriage. Cheating is one way to betray your spouse. I do think a divorce means there was a failure somewhere whether is was fidelity or financially.

Sometimes no even that excuse is needed.
