Interestingly, the results showed that men were more likely to forgive and forget. In fact, 36% of men responding, ‘People make mistakes’, while less than a quarter of women agreed with the statement.

- People with a PhD (67%) are almost twice as likely to respond ‘Definitely’ than those with a Masters Degree (34%).
- Unsurprisingly, divorcees (59%) are less forgiving than those who are married (29%).
- People in a relationship (19%) are nearly 4 times as likely to choose ‘It’s only cheating if you get caught’ than single respondents (5%).
