I agree with this, except more for men than women. Because they're more interested in extracurricular sex than most women (although I did share a story about a cheating wife I had to share a room with on a business trip on another thread). Traveling salesmen staying in hotels are probably the worst, and touring musicians. It's just more or less expected that a man going to a convention will cheat. There will be prostitutes everywhere. I mean, the salesmen meeting clients at conventions literally hire prostitutes for their clients a lot of times.Oh, I'm sure there are tons but these are some that come to mind.
military on deployment
Certain healthcare fields
Any job with a lot of travel
@oldshirt, I also think it comes down to personal experiences. Not necessarily the occupations, but how one handles themselves within their occupation versus life outside of work. Then people can gauge going forward.Perhaps it would be a shorter list to discuss occupations that DONT have much infidelity or broken marriages or promiscuity etc.
.Agreed. It's not a cheap hobby that just anyone can get into. So as a group they are probably used to getting what they want.The horse women: maybe selfishness?
I have met many horse women throughout my life. None of them seem to work a whole lot, and rely on their husband to fund the majority of horse expenses, which are HUGE. And the time suck is huge.
But they just have to have their horse.
It's great when you have a job that you love that much. I guess there's such a thing as going overboard, though. I know when I had a job that was kind of night and day that I loved, really I only had time mainly for people who were doing something associated that kept us crossing paths. So if I had wanted to marry during that time, it would have had to be someone who was kind of doing the same thing and understood the pull of it. And indeed one of my Bfs and I were on a parallel career track for many years and even working together. He did want to get married and married twice in the time I was working with him. At least one of those times he got his wife a related job even though she had no prior experience at it. So maybe the problem comes in when someone starts a different career after you already have your marriage routine going and it upsets the apple cart.There seems to be some skew toward likelihood of infidelity creeping in. I actually assumed that it was that they put their job/horse before their relationships. Though most anecdotes seem to point towards promiscuity in the professions.
That makes me worry about the horse owners 😬
