The holiday month of August used to be a time for Italian men to stay in Rome while their wives went off to the seaside, kids in tow. The husbands ostensibly had to stay in the city to "work," though that was often a euphemism for spending leisure time with their mistresses, without having to worry about excuses or lies.

I think I saw this movie.

Good. So there's still time for me to single handedly save Italy when I go study in Rome?

Italy has all their money tied up in the Amanda Knox trial, so of course there are austerity measures. Just wait till they get a solid prosecution though, they'll have more money than the Vatican.

With Burlesconi in jail, I'm not sure Italy even has an economy these days.

So the less money you have, the likely you are to cheat? So poor people tend to have rock-solid marriages?

I have always been curious about countries like Italy and France where fidelity is more of an option vs a reality.

In the US you have a few alpha males that get alot, many males that have one SO, and some males that have none.

But in countries where men don't pretend not to fark around, how does that work.  Because assuming men and women are balanced about 50/50 (europe, not china) then how does that work?  Do both men and women have lovers on the side?  And if there are lots of men with mutliple girlfriends, everybody is farking everybody or there is a huge percentage of those forced out of the game like in retro not-a-mormon compounds.

There are women out there that get tired of it and find their own boytoys.

MILF's do exist in reality and not just the internet.

It'shiatting rich Italian men, because of their stupid austerity policies. Thanks, Angela Merkel!

The article gave one possible answer - a married one. But I also think you might be surprised at what people (even women!) are willing to overlook for exotic vacations, expensive gifts, and exciting sex.

Also this. There's a small, but not insignificant, subset of folks for whom that type of relationship may actually be seen as a benefit for one reason or another.
