Stacey Hampton shocked the viewers of Married At First Sight this week when she took the side of her “husband,” Michael Goonan, after cheating on her with Hayley Vernon.
And although Stacey’s decision to blame Hayley may have confused viewers, there is actually a scientific reason behind it.
According to Love now, a study by Cardiff Metropolitan University showed that “women blame the other woman in an affair rather than her cheating partner.”

Psychologist Andrea Bonior said that the role of women as caregivers and caregivers influences how we see them in society.
“There is the deep-rooted belief that women are the caregivers,” she explained. “They must be able to feed men and keep them happy.”
Couple therapist Esther Perel added: ‘What a man does is [seen as] a direct result of the woman. It is either someone who seduced him or someone who drove him away. “
Michael’s secret kiss with Hayley was unmasked during Wednesday night’s dinner.

The couple were connected to the Vanessa Romito and Chris Nicholls apartment a week earlier after a drunken night out in Darling Harbor.
Back then, Stacey was with her children in Adelaide, and Hayley’s “husband”, David Cannon, was down the hall in his room.
At dinner, Michael designed claims that he was unfaithful by insisting that he was “too drunk to remember” what happened.

He acknowledged that he was “stupid” and flirted with Hayley on the night in question, claiming he couldn’t remember kissing him.
Hayley, who is proud to be honest, regardless of the consequences, told the group that they had actually kissed.
Meanwhile, Stacey took her husband’s side and accused Hayley of “abusing” Michael while he was drunk.
Married At First Sight will continue on Channel Nine on Sunday at 7 p.m.
