New controversial research suggests that infidelity can add value to marriage.
The study, conducted by online dating agency Ashley Madison, revealed that many people believe that their spouse feels more attracted to them, after cheating.
The results showed that after a love affair, an astonishing 70 percent of cheaters said that their attitudes became more positive for life in general.
But science suggests that this momentum in the optimistic outlook depends on the underlying reasons for playing away from home.

According to Ashley Madison, matters are not always about replacing someone or something.
Of the 1,700 people surveyed, statistics revealed that 52 percent of women and 56 percent of men still have sex with their spouse while participating in extramarital encounters.
"Most members report that their spouse feels more attracted to them after they started their business," said Isabella Wise, communications director at Ashley Madison.
"When people decide to participate in an adventure in a meaningful way, the benefits for their emotional well-being can flow in other areas of their lives."

Studies conducted by the Missouri State University in the USA. UU They indicate that those who looked for sexual reasons reported an increase in overall satisfaction, while those who embarked on mainly emotional causes reported a decrease in life satisfaction.
Professor Alicia Walker, a specialist in sexuality and culture in the state of Missouri, said the elements of the findings were "surprising."
"It may not be surprising that people say that their satisfaction increases during an adventure, but participants reported that even after they finished, they were still happier than they were before the adventure."

Another woman from the USA UU He said that since meeting someone at the controversial dating site, the sexual aspect of his life was "revitalized" which allowed him to become "a better wife" than he was before.
A separate poll by Ashley Madison titled: "Why are you cheating? & # 39; revealed what allows cheaters to return home as a more satisfied companion after being unfaithful.
