Is there immunity from infidelity?

Infidelity is all around us, and there’s apparently no escaping its disregard for religion, culture, ethnicity, and gender. Politicians, actors and sports stars have all succumbed to infidelity. This is not an article to debate if it happens more frequently to men than women because both have been unfaithful to a spouse or partner, some once and others on multiple occasions.

If you’re to reduce your odds of falling victim to infidelity from a statistical perspective, then you’re limiting your pool for finding love since you might choose to discriminate based on a person’s race, ethnicity, and profession. What you need to understand is that everyone is capable of infidelity.
