I noticed (just like me) all the answers are zero.
I wonder: if it's because the question was posted in Reconciliation? If it was posted in "D/S" would the answer be the same. Also most here on SI are trying to work it out, so again wonder if the answer might be different on other forum?
Me: BH, 44
Her: WW, 43

I just answered the other question so I suppose I should answer this.
If I answer honestly, I'd say that when we married I'd have put his chances of cheating at a 2 or 3, if I'm being honest with myself. He had been engaged before me, their relationship was a rollercoaster that involved cheating on each of their parts, multiple times. He was pretty much a man whore when we first started dating, but stopped when he decided he was interested in a relationship with me.
It had always been a fear in the back of my mind because he was flirtatious and preferred female friends.
But the weekend he cheated on me, if you'd have asked me if I thought he would ever cheat, my answer would have been a zero.
Him: WH ONS/short EA
Married 11 years
Together 15 years

Absolute zero - for the full 18 years prior to d-day. And even after d-day, I was so shocked my main concern was him being so remorseful he'd be suicidal. Instead he took the A underground. What do I know?
D-day #1 - 1/23/13
false R, then...
D-day #2 - 3/26/13

mine was a zero. My wife and I both come from broken homes. Also this was my wife's second marriage thus the zero.
My wife's parents divorced because her dad cheated. I guess she's a 'chip off the old block'
Me - BS
Her - WS
affair length - 6 months with MM
married since 7/92
NC violated 4/02, 6/02, 8/02

Guess I would have been zero after 41 years of marriage....shame on me, the affair had been for the last 5 years.
Now after reading and better understanding changing in relationships with co-workers...I would say 5 as he did lots of activities and worked with women. He was always a good listener which many women liked....I never thought too much about it except who the AP was and never trusted her.

I truly thought there was zero chance. I don't think anything could possibly have blown up my conception of reality more than this.

He was a dedicated father of two. An upstanding guy. We'd been married for 20+ years and I thought he abhorred disloyalty as much as I did. Obviously not.
I also thought at 47, balding and 'unfit' that the risk of straying had passed. Didn't factor in that those things don't matter when you're paying for it.
