A new study has revealed that married couples with kids cheat more than the childless.

According to the study, parents are nearly twice as likely to cheat as married people without children, the New York Post.

The study of 1,000 18- to 49-year-olds found that 18% of parents said they've strayed, compared to only 11% of childless married people.

Melissa Lavigne-Delville, the San Francisco-based culture and trend expert who conducted the study, said that many parents are logging onto social networks like Facebook and Instagram for emotional fulfillment.

Lavigne-Delville  said that their study found that the likelihood of committing infidelity is far greater once the pressures and realities of parenthood enter the equation and digital only makes it that much easier and blurs the line of what is actually cheating.
