The rock band Dr Hook once lamented that “when you’re in love with a beautiful women, it’s hard”.
But a new study suggests it is the less attractive ladies who are responsible for the greatest heartache.
When US researchers followed more than 200 married couples for three-and-a-half years, they discovered that women who considered themselves attractive were far more likely to be faithful.
They also found that women who had been more promiscuous in the years before their marriage were less likely to cheat.
In contrast, less-attractive females who had limited sexual experience were more likely to engage in extra-marital entanglements.
