I’m breaking the ‘guy code’ to say this, but if self-reporting can be trusted,
95% 90% of guys (in my unscientific surveying) in Brazil cheat on their women female counterparts. I’ve been told so, in private, many times from guys from different socio-economic backgrounds, ages, (of different) skin color, you name it. I’m talking about guys with wives, fiances, long-term girlfriends, or new girlfriends, it reaches across the spectrum. Cheating is not only rampant, but admitted to in the most nonchalant manner.
Now, obviously either the women know or don’t know, but I get the feeling they know and simply think there’s nothing much better out there. On the flip side, single, young(ish) women sleep around a lot, as well, and seem to think nothing of it.
I seriously feel like I’m in Bizarro World and what’s backwards is forwards here. Monogamy is the exception to the rule, unless, of course, you are of the bible-carrying kind. If your experiences are others, please do tell.
I may start referencing US culture less in my Lessons from Brazil series.
I’d say that in the US, the going rate for cheaters, and the like, is around 60% for the men. From my perspective (see comments) it will be catching up with Brazil soon enough.
