We think we can all agree that cheating on a significant other is extremely bad form right?
Well, according to a survey by Victoria Milan, it's not bad enough to register on the sin scale for the majority of religious folk.
The website asked 5,307 of its active members what everyone wants to know but is too scared to ask: if you’re religious and you have an affair, does it make you bad?
More than 70% of users of Victoria Milan belong to a religion, and the majority is Christian – 22.5% are Protestant and 19.5% are Catholic – just 28.5% identify as atheist or agnostic, and notable others are Orthodox (5.5%), Muslim (4.5%), Buddhist (1.5%), Jewish (1.0%) and Hindu (0.5%).
Though every religion teaches its followers not to covet sexy neighbours or embark in erotic adulterous adventures, 77.5% of people surveyed agree life is too short, and don’t consider infidelity an unforgivable sin – and more often than not, even if it is – it’s worth the risk.
Founder and CEO of Victoria Milan, Sigurd Vedal, said that:
“Religion and affairs are more similar than people think: they both provide fulfillment, satisfaction and purpose in life. But let’s be honest: having an affair is a lot more fun that going to church."
