The revelation isn't particularly shocking, but hey, at least it's official now: DC is home to the nation's highest concentration of cheaters.
More people per capita in the D.C. metropolitan area sign up for the website Ashley Madison than in any other city, according to the site, which helps people looking to stray. Washington has the highest per capita membership among the site's 13 million users, The Washington Post reports.
The chief executive officer of the company tells the Post he believes people who live and work in the District achieve success from taking professional risks, which often pay off, and the personality trait prompts personal risks, too.
"The more successful you are, the more prone to cheating you are, and Washington is full of successful people looking for something outside their marriage," CEO Noel Biderman tells the Post.
The site claims 38,000 registered users in the District.
There are so many jokes to crack on the matter, but honestly, it's sad. 13 million people are so committed to cheating on their spouses that they've signed up for a dating site devoted to affairs? As if we needed further proof that society is in decline...
