London, Apr 7 (ANI): One in ten Britons would cheat on their partner if they thought they could get away with it, a new survey has revealed.

Also, a fifth of Brits fantasise regularly about having an affair, the poll of 3,000 married couples revealed.

The study found that although 73 per cent fear divorce if they are unfaithful, 12 per cent admit cheating on their spouse and a third have done so in a past relationship, reports The Daily Express.

According to 69 per cent, a quick kiss is enough to lose a spouse’s trust.

For 14 percent of the respondents, flirting is a no-no, while 63 per cent of married people say it is possible to have an emotional affair rather than a physical one.

OnePoll, which carried out the study, said: “If this research is to be believed, there are a lot of really unstable marriages in Britain. It’s all very well enjoying the odd fantasy, but to actually deceive a partner for a meaningless fumble is not to be taken lightly.

“Different people have different expectations in a relationship - some couples are more than happy for their partners to flirt with others, and some find this too much to bear.” (ANI)
