Follow Up: If You And Spouse Travel Separately, Is Something "Going On"?

I was interested to read the question about husbands and wives taking separate trips on occasion.
If this does occur, do you ever suspect your husband is 'running around'? Do you, if you're the one travelling alone or on a 'girls' trip'?
Polls suggest up to 75% of American couples are not entirely monogamous.
Do you think this is accurate?

Does travelling provide opportunity and temptation, or is infidelity an accident waiting to happen regardless?

I'm surprised if it's as low as 75%.

You guys sound like you feel guilty about something.

Abby, what's the matter, is your TV on the blink and you can't watch Jerry Springer?

This is the stupidest thread yet. Run out and get yourself the Enquirer and leave us alone..

Not here. I have sisters that I go on sister trips with and there is never any fooling around. Now I have traveled for business extensively in the past, and yes, there were some men and women who were WILD on these trips--all married and with children.

Yep, been there and most definitely have learned this lesson the hard way. I used to go on vacations separate from husband all the time -- and had my head in the sand about it. He DID cheat on me while I was away, the clues were there but I didn't see them until too late. Divorced him because of it, and am much better off and happier. I think that some people are trustworthy, sure, and can be safely "left alone" while the spouse is on vacation -- my ex was not one of those guys. Live and learn.

My husband and I have traveled separately several times. He plays rugby, and I have absolutely no desire to go on rugby tours with his team! (10 days in a tour bus with 20 smelly rugby guys is not my idea of fun!) Likewise, I have done a weeklong horse trek in Ireland, and he is not a rider, so I went alone and had a wonderful time. (He couldn't imagine spending 6 hours a day on a horse!) We like our trips apart, but we also like to come home to each other!

Well, I never thought about it really. My wife travels a few times a year with a man she works with, often to the Caribbean. But I never considered there might be something going on.

He can cheat just as easily while I am home as he can while I am away (and vice versa) so what difference does the travel make? This isn't a geography issue, it is a realationship one.

Are guys who go to strip clubs on vacation more likely to screw around on their SO's than guys who don't?
Any men out there who care to weigh in on this?

Men who go to strip clubs are so hard up that I think they'd probably be the first to cheat, if presented with an opportunity. (I don't mean with one of the strippers, just making a correlation)

Ann, strip clubs are slummy, so are the guys who go and the babes who strip. Same for the hangar clubs where the babes go nuts stuffing dollars into some young guy's jock strap. Supposedly the babes doing it is just girls night out. The guys doing it, well, it's sleezy. Actually the whole bit, for men and for women, kind of stinks, don't you think.

One time, somebody dragged me to a strip club for lunch. The girls were really getting hot on stage when the music stopped, and the place erupted in a near riot. Fortunately I looked down and my god, the cord to the music system was wrapped around my foot. I quickly plugged it back in the wall and the show went on. I took it as sign that perhaps I ought to have a more hygenic lunch.

What's a hangar club?
Where's that name come from?
