In the survey, which was polled by infidelity site AshleyMadison.com, of 15,000 cheating mothers, one in five said that they have found themselves in a “sticky situation” while trying to balance motherhood with an affair.
In a statement released on Tuesday, the site also revealed that they typically see the highest spike in female signups on the day after Mother’s Day, the Huffington Post reported.
The statement read that in 2012, they saw a whopping 439 percent increase on that day as compared to a typical Monday.
Ashley Madison founder and CEO Noel Biderman said that Mother’s Day tends to magnify the flaws, which leads to questions about the choices women made, and ultimately fosters conclusions around doing something different for themselves.
Biderman said that this latter choice tended to be the genesis of many women’s journey into an affair.
67 percent mothers reported that they have taken a call from their lover in front of their kids, the Huffington Post reported.
Fifty-six percent moms reported that they have been late to pick up their kid from sports, school, a play date, etc.
Twenty-nine percent of the moms admitted to changing their kid’s plans in order to accommodate a rendezvous.
Four percent of mothers admitted that they have introduced their kid to their lover under a false pretence.
The survey also found that 2 percent of mothers had been caught by their kid in a compromising position.
