‘Netflix cheating’ is a serious relationship sin — Forever 39 Podcast
Forever 39 is New Jersey 101.5's new podcast about living life as Gen Xers in New Jersey, hosted by Annette Petriccione, Megan Barsel and lots of our friends from the NJ 101.5 universe.
'Netflix cheating' — Are you guilty?
Bingeworthy TV …we're all guilty of it whether it's hunkering down during a snowstorm or enjoying a lazy weekend, we've all binged on something. But have you ever binge-cheated and watched a show you promised your partner you wouldn't dare watch without them? If you say yes, you're not alone.
A survey recently done by Netflix of 30,000 couples shows that almost half of all couples admit to TV cheating on their partners. Of those that admit to Netflix cheating, 48 percent are married. Even more troubling ... 61 percent of those surveyed said they would cheat more if they thought they could get away with it.
So when does most Netflix cheating happen? Well, according to the survey, you're most at risk of being cheated on when one of you is on a business trip. Falling asleep or working late also puts you at risk, according to the survey.
For some couples Netflix cheating is such a big NO that it's worse than actual cheating. In fact, 14 percent of those surveyed said Netflix cheating is worse than having an actual affair. WOW!!! And 18 percent of couples admitted to getting into an argument about Netflix cheating.
Annette and Megan have fun chatting about this version of devious behavior and how many of us are really doing it. Are you one of them?
