This may be a strange study but it's very interesting, very. First of all Texas..shame on you! How could the state of Texas top this list?  Texas not only has the number one most unfaithful city in the country, but it also has the second and third most unfaithful cities.

There were a lot of towns involved in this study. Two hundred to be exact. You would think that Las Vegas would be way up at the top but it's ranked #64. Oh silly me, that's right 'What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas'...right? At least that's what the ads always say.

So, How Did They Come Up With This Information Anyway?

1. Dallas, Texas

Seriously? That's where I grew up! How did this happen? Even though the happiness factor and the number of marriages and divorces are pretty close to the others in the top ten, it was the google searches for an affair meet-up that ended up tipping the scale.
