About 55% of married Indians have cheated on their partner at least once, of which 56% are women, according to latest survey by Gleeden, India’s first extramarital dating app.
Moreover, 48% of Indians believe that it is possible to be in love with two people at the same time, while 46% think that one can cheat on a person while still being in love with them. This is probably why Indians are ready to forgive their partners in case they found out about the affair- 7% would forgive the partner without a second thought, while 40% would do so if the circumstances were extenuating. Similarly, they expect to be forgiven by their partner (69%).
This research was conducted among 1,525 Indian married individuals between the age of 25 and 50, across Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Kolkata and Ahmedabad.
