A new study out of the University of Texas claims women – yes, women – are predisposed to cheating on their boyfriend and/or husband.
And you ladies just sit there looking innocent. How dare you!
Women are predisposed by their genetics to have affairs as “back-up plans'” if their relationships fail, according to a research paper.
Scientists at the University of Texas say they are challenging the assumption that humans have evolved to have monogamous relationships.
The senior author of the research, Dr David Buss, told the Sunday Times: “Lifelong monogamy does not characterize the primary mating patterns of humans. Affairs serve as a form of mate insurance, keeping a back-up mate should a switch become warranted in the future.” (H/T – AOSHQ)
I am surprised and disgusted by all of you! Nah, not really. I don’t necessarily disagree with the backup plan theory. Men, in general, are pigs and morons. I should know; I excel at being both. Mrs. Earp has a backup plan for me – or at least she should, because believe me, I’m no great catch.
