Ashley Madison CEO Noel Biderman said that women tend to spend more money on shopping and clothes when they start having an affair.
Biderman said: “Becoming more concerned with one’s appearance is often a dead giveaway for an affair … If your spouse suddenly seems more consumed with style and putting outfits together after spending years in sweat pants, that is a telltale sign she could be two-timing.”
Some people may argue against Biderman’s conclusion but the Ashley Madison survey seems to back it up. According to the survey, more than 33% of women said that they spend twice as much as normal on clothes once they start having an affair.
Ashley Madison also notes that many women (about 12.4% of those surveyed) will return the clothes after their rendezvous.
