Open discussion: Is infidelity on the rise? Why or why not?

Posted at 9:57 AM on November 19, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

Midmorning's November 19, 2008 program description Infidelity on the rise:

A handful of new studies indicate that infidelity is on the rise, particularly among older men and younger women. Some say the nature of infidelity is changing, with the emphasis being less on sex and more on intimacy.

I wonder if there really are more cases of infidelity, or if the definition has changed... or if our culture is simply more open to talking about it.

Join our online discussion to share your comments. Is infidelity on the rise? Why or why not? Do you believe infidelity only affects the relationship in the situation, or does it affect a community? Is it really changing to include "emotional" infidelity?
