In short, it hurts like hell, and the impact can be far-reaching. But, as with so many aspects of human behavior, it turns out we are fairly adaptive creatures, especially over the long term, and even an experience as calamitous as being cheated on has a potentially large upside.
In fact, new scientific research suggests that cheating may be neither as common nor as devastating as we imagine. And if you are worried that you are being cheated on, or are still recovering from the aftermath of infidelitythen science has some encouraging news for you.

In other words, the fitness costs of cheating and being caught are simply too high for most women to risk it. Being the victim of infidelity is never going to be easy.
But if the research is right, we can all breathe a bit easier that it is a little less likely and damaging than we think.
