A new study has revealed when cheating is most likely to happen in a marriage, and it's very different for men and women. 

The Journal of Sex Research has found that women are more likely to stray between six and 10 years after getting married, while men generally do so after 11 years. 

Men are more likely to cheat than women, and atheists are more likely to cheat than religious people. 

The fear of being alone and wanting to stay in line with moral standards are bigger factors in stopping people from having affairs than worries over how cheating would impact their partner or family.
