According to a new study, the results of which are somewhat suspect, among the seventy-two percent of bankers who've supposedly had an affair, 63 percent of the males "said that they were convinced their wives knew about their affairs," versus 3% of female bankers who said the same of their husbands. Here are a few other details respondents got off their chests:

87% of affairs involve a work colleague

26% of male bankers had had an affair with their PA / secretary

24% said that they 'played away' because their wife now reminded them more of their mother

4% said that they did it in the hope of getting caught

63% of male bankers said that they were convinced their wives knew about their affairs, but said nothing for the sake of the relationship

Just 3% of female bankers said that they were convinced their husbands knew about their affairs

41% said that they weren't looking for an affair (it just happened)

13% confirmed that they had had an affair with their immediate boss
