As women gain more education and financial power, they are also beginning to act like men in the bedroom as well as the boardroom. As women gain power, they are also more likely to cheat. A quote from an article in the WSJ on the changing nature of marriage captures this dynamic.
This educational divide between men and women is also one of the reasons why female infidelity has increased in recent decades. Researchers at Tilburg University in the Netherlands, led by Joris Lammers, looked at the behavior of more than 1,500 professionals and found that women who are higher up the corporate ladder are more likely to cheat (just as higher-status men are). And since men who are financially dependent have more to lose if they leave unfaithful wives, female infidelity is less likely to lead to divorce when the woman makes more.
