Study shows pay discrimination makes sense

Just kidding. But what a great headline, eh?

Men in relationships with women who made about 75 percent of the men’s income were the least likely to cheat, said the study, which was released at the American Sociological Association’s 105th annual meeting in Atlanta, Georgia.

via Men more likely to cheat on women with bigger paychecks, study says –

Seems to me that this is a pretty flimsy finding. Men are more likely to cheat if they make a lot more or a lot less money, and only “less likely” to cheat otherwise. So overall – pretty much cheating all the way.

On the other hand, these are results of examining,

married and cohabitating people between the ages of 18 and 28, who were in the relationship for more than a year. The study uses data from the 2002 through 2007 waves of the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth.

So how much can we trust findings about children in a particular generation to hold across 28-34 and other age bands?
