If you are thinking of having an affair then you might want to check out this article, it suggests that the average affair costs an adulterer £8,000. This figure is based upon a poll which looked at 2,000 adulterers. On average unfaithful partners will spend £2,000 on secret holidays, £1,000 on dining, £916 on food and drink in country pubs and £1,000 on flowers. In additional to this most mistresses receive 10 boxes of chocolates, 11 bouquets of flowers, and 10 sets of clothes, underwear or jewellery in a 12 month period. The poll also found that adulterers also spent more money on their cheated partners, with eleven per cent of adults being more likely to take them away for a weekend if they are having an affair and one in ten buying flowers on the way home from a liaison.
