I don't have the answer. Maybe some sociologist has data.

Oh, good grief! Work status has nothing to do with who cheats. The person most likely to cheat is the person with various psychological profiles, like maybe narcissistic, maybe someone needy, whatever. Working men cheat, don't they? Stay-at-home dads can cheat. So why would women be any different?

50/50 chance if you marry a player or a weak person.

People either think it is OK to cheat, or they don't. Their work situation has nothing to do with it.

However, a woman who is unhappy in her marriage is much more likely to cheat, since she isn't getting her needs met at home or is even looking for a new nest to move into.

That being said, even if they were morally bankrupt, most SAHMs I know don't have the time, energy, or opportunity to cheat. Are they going to squeeze in a quickie between dropping the 4-year-old off at preschool, taking the dog to the vet, then picking the 7-year-old up from soccer practice and before rushing home to make dinner?

This is why in Near Eastern countries, many women aren't allowed to work outside the home, or not around men. Because of this erroneous belief.

A huge chunk of extramarital affairs are a result of work romances. That's a fact, not erroneous. Women don't typically cheat with some random guy they meet in the street.

SAHM has more flexible time while kids are in school. Not everyone is playing tennis or volunteering in the library.

And SAHMs are not just around other moms.
