Lying never goes out of style. People make promises to their partners and then find new ways to betray them.
The latest twist on this? Promising to watch a TV show with your partner, but then secretly viewing it by yourself – Netflix Adultery. It is estimated that over fifty percent of people betray their partner’s expectations about watching TV shows together. A key quote summarizing the findings:
“Of those who cheated, 66 percent did so “at home by themselves on the main TV.” A shocking 21 percent confessed to watching in bed while their significant other slept… Forty-one percent of cheaters refrained from revealing spoilers; 12 percent would rewatch and “fake it” in their reactions; 14 percent felt so guilty they confessed to cheating.”
