(WIAT) — When it comes to the amount on their paycheck, leading businesses and overall wealth, men lead the charge.

However, when it comes to cheating, ladies are gaining on men.

Results from a study by the National Opinion Research Center’s General Social Survey shows the number of wives having affairs jumped almost 40 percent in the last two decades.

Men are still more likely to cheat than women, though.

The study shows men blame infidelity on unhappiness with their marriage.

One in four men are just not happy with their marriage.

So, what’s behind the jump in ladies cheating?

It could partly be because women are now less likely to lose everything in a divorce and are better equipped to rise in the corporate world ranks.
