Top Careers Where Cheating Can Be Tempting

Is your partner going to cheat on you soon? The truth is that no one knows the answer to this question, and in all honesty, most people wish they did to avoid a lot of heartache and to jump ship before it goes under. But what if the nature of their job could lead them to be unfaithful?


When people think of a career choice that could make one's partner susceptible to cheating, certain risqué professions spring to mind, like working in a strip club or being an adult escort.

But are there less conspicuous careers that could earn your partner a roving eye and be a landmine for your relationship?

We spoke to relationship counsellor Lethabo Ntsasa to find out which careers we should raise our eyebrows at.

Ntsasa says cheating can happen anywhere, even the most unlikely places.

"There is a bit of cynicism that has to be involved to believe that a career choice could leave anyone vulnerable to cheating.
Top Careers Where Cheating Can Be Tempting
"First of all, if your partner wants to cheat on you, they will, period. Some people have had affairs in church!

"Cheating has a lot to do with how your partner values you as a person, as well as the relationship.

"So the examples I provide are based purely on which professions dangle the most bait, but remember, it is all your partner's responsibility how they handle temptation, as well as how much they value you and the relationship in the first place.

"This is also not to insinuate that any of the people in these careers are unfaithful. Their choice of careers just provide the opportunity and possibility."

Ntsasa's top professions that leave room for cheating.

Politicians
"If the Bill Clinton scandal opened our eyes to anything, it is that politicians have a lot of cheating scandals behind closed doors.

"South Africa has also had its fair share of sex scandals involving politicians.

"My theory is that it has everything to do with power and being in control.

"Some people get into a position of power and deem themselves invincible and lower their regard for other people, and in this case, their spouses."

Waiters and bartenders
"They have ample opportunity to flirt and get lots of offers of phone numbers [from] patrons.

"Waitresses often get offered lifts home by interested suitors.

"Temptation can also come with being a waiter at an elite, upmarket establishment with wealthy business people as clientele."

"They meet a lot of people in their line of work, many who would love to ingratiate themselves to score that invite to the next event.

"So, in a way, they are in a position of power, and some people like to take advantage of that."
Pastors
"We have known of some shady pastors out there.

"The appeal for a pastor to have an affair probably lies in the ability to get away with it.

"They are people no one would suspect, as they are the pinnacle of virtue to their congregations. Plus, they are often confronted by men and women looking for solace, which might leave room for temptation."

Entertainment industry folk
"One word: groupies.

"They are in the limelight, and literally have thousands of people fantasising about conquering their affections.

"If your partner is an attention seeker and one of those who lets fame go to their head, your relationship may be in trouble."

Long-distance truck drivers
"Some of them are notorious for picking up different women along the routes they travel.

"The temptation here is simple; they are on the road for days on end, and away from home for long periods of time.

"If loneliness comes knocking during that time, they may just give in." lJournalists

"They travel a lot, as well as go to different kinds of events, sometimes on a daily basis.

"They come in contact with various sorts of influential people, and may find themselves the objects of desire.

"Not everyone has the power to say 'No'."
