Per the report on K104.7’s website, My Dating Advisor conducted a study concerning which cities in the US are home to the most cheaters.

The K104.7 report primarily focuses on the cities in North Carolina where cheating happens most often. According to the article, the metropolitan area in North Carolina that is home to the most incidents of adultery is Durham.

How Does Adultery Affect Divorce in North Carolina?

Cheating can impact a divorce in North Carolina in several ways. Adultery can affect whether the court awards a spouse alimony, and it can impact how much spousal support a spouse is awarded. Committing infidelity can also affect how the court decides issues like division of property and child custody.

In addition to impacting divorce decisions, adultery can leave people open to legal action, such as alienation of affection and criminal conversation lawsuits. An alienation of affection lawsuit is a civil suit that someone can file against a person who they believe caused them to lose the affection of their spouse. A criminal conversation lawsuit enables people to file civil lawsuits against people they believe had sex with their spouse while they were still married.
