A few weeks ago I was having a drink with a friend of mine; we were talking about relationships when he said, “I am actually surprised that you married an Italian man.

You don’t seem like the type of woman who would go for one.” I asked him to explain further, he sighed and said, “Well, they are famous for being very high maintenance and for being unfaithful.” I wasn’t offended because it’s kind of true, they are high maintenance compared to an American guy, and it wasn’t the first time someone had brought up the “cheater” stereotype.

Amazon’s workforce is 75 percent male, according to

That’s consistent with the gender ratio at Microsoft and other tech companies, as well.

While, in the US only 33% of relationships will continue after the discovery of infidelity. Women entering the workforce has increased the infidelity rate for women in Italy which is quickly catching up with the men.
