I was watching "Being the Ricardos" last night, and one of the film's themes was Desi Arnaz' infidelities. It made me wonder if there is any truth to the stereotype of the Latin lover.
The General Social Survey asked married men if they had ever cheated on their spouse. Here are the percentages (N = 4,243):
Percent of married men who have cheated
Non-Hispanic black 25.2
Black Hispanic 20.0
White Hispanic 16.9
Non-Hispanic white 16.3
Hispanic--other race 15.0
Non-Hispanic--other race 13.9
I calculated percentages for each race because I know it is relevant for infidelity. There is evidence here that black men cheat more than other groups, but rates are not high for Hispanics.
