It seems that the word “stupid” can now be scientifically attributed to cheating spouses... specifically husbands!
Over the past week, several newspapers have covered Dr. Satoshi Kanazawa’s research into fidelity as an evolutionary practice. In essence, this novel research by the LSE’s Dr. Kanazawa, suggests that entering an exclusive relationship is an “evolutionary novel” development, based on the fact that throughout evolutionary history, men have always been “mildly polygamous”.
According to Dr. Kanazawa’s research, intelligent men are more likely to adopt what in evolutionary terms are new practices - to become “more evolved”. The same theory does not apply to womenfolk because they have always been expected to be faithful to one mate... even in polygamous societies.
Private Investigator Annie Murphy of Bluemoon Investigations says that these assertions stack-up, in terms of marital investigation queries “without a doubt, we receive far more phone-calls from wives than husbands, seeking investigative services for their spouses – and sadly, their suspicions are generally proven right”. The figures add up too, “since we started this business, on average, we’ve noted that 85% of women who feel their partner is cheating are correct, while men are usually around the 50% mark”.
Given the recent spate of celebrity cheaters out there, we’re guessing people like Annie might be quite busy – “well, unfortunately for those affected, we don’t see much variance in the amount of marital investigation – as in, it very rarely decreases... we haven’t taken on any celebrity investigations... yet! This new research might open a new line of business for us though – pre-marital screening, including an IQ test perhaps?!”.
