But beware, do not take us for suckers we easily forgive if the deviation took place … with another lady. However, we are more than 22% to close their eyes when the traitor has crept in bed with another man. The study was conducted by psychologist Jaime C. Confer (University of Texas) with the help of his father, psychologist Mark D. Cloud (Lock Haven University). Specifically, she asked 700 students on its campus to imagine they were in a relationship with a person for at least three months and then asked about their likely reaction on learning that they were wrong.

And for a buck, that’s what counts above all, be certain to be the father of her children.

But beyond this, the instinct of every male (regardless of species) pushes him to copulate with females the maximum in order to increase their chances of fatherhood. However, the woman sees the homosexual deception of a different eye. It interprets this as a sign of dissatisfaction with his vis-à-vis their companion couple and as a prelude to his departure.
