Sucky Mother's Day 2015 Gifts May Cause More Women To Cheat, Says New Study

There's a good reason for husbands to think long and hard about making sure their wives know they are appreciated come Mother's Day, 2015, says a new report. According to the New York Post, websites that are designed to help married men and women commit adultery are expecting a 500 percent increase in new memberships from women the day following Mother's Day. The Ashley-Madison cheating website reports that a 442 percent increase in new memberships occurred after Mother's Day, 2014, and the same increase bore witness in previous years, since 2010.

As such, the New York Post reports that a 42-year-old woman decided to cheat on her husband of 15 years after Mother's Day -- not only because of a lack of flowers or a significant gift on the special day, but because she felt unappreciated by his lack of attention and their reported bad sex life that lacked passion. The Bergen County, New Jersey, based woman cheated with a man she fell in love with -- a man that she says flaked out on her after several months.

The downside of adultery isn't as prominently plugged in those statistics, such as rumors of 28-year-old Elyse Tirrell's alleged affair with Bobby Flay, as reported by the Inquisitr -- an event that helped to place the final nail in the coffin of the Food Network star's marriage, although 50-year-old Flay calls claims of a three-year-long affair with Elyse simply rumors -- without directly denying the claims of adultery.

The financial costs of divorce are expected to be felt by Flay, along with a businessman whose adulterous ways will cost him €18,000 per month -- or $20,151 in United States dollars -- along with a family home and vacation home, each worth nearly $2 million, as reported by the Irish Independent.

Sunday, May 10, is the official date of Mother's Day, 2015, in the United States. Therefore, the big business of secret adultery will continue to be tracked in its wake. As reported by the New Zealand Herald, the company at the helm of the cheating business claims it's worth $1 billion, but they've failed to gain North American investors towards their lofty fundraising goals.

While the initial allure of adultery or secret meetings and trysts with those met via adultery websites -- or even the seeming impressive earnings gained by such places -- can make such actions seem like the answer to non-appreciation via Mother's Day gifts, enough Dateline NBC episodes about cheating gone wrong prove that adultery can be a dangerous proposition.
