The level of income and employment status has also been linked to infidelity. Individuals who earn huge salaries far much than their spouses tend to engage in infidelity. This is because they have more than enough to spend. This is more likely to happen if a woman earns a lot of salary than her partner. Employment status has also contributed to the increasing cases of infidelity. This is common when one partner is employed and the other one is not. The employed one tends to dictate on the unemployed partner and does what he/she wants. This is because lack of earning and dependence on one partner makes them feel frightened. This is common on both partners.
