Is “Netflix cheating” ruining your relationship?

Have you ever cheated on anyone? According to, over half of men and women admit to straying from a relationship at least once. It remains one of the top reasons why people get divorced.

What about “Netflix cheating”? It’s when you agree to watch a television series with your significant other but then you begin to watch episodes without him or her. Not as serious but still a violation of trust.

Netflix conducted a survey and found that 46 percent of couples who watch shows together have Netflix cheated. And out of that 46 percent, 81 percent had done it more than once! Couples in Brazil and Mexico are the biggest offenders; 57 percent and 58 percent, respectively admit to doing the deed.
