Cheaters prosper in D.C., according to philanderer's website of choice, Ashley Madison. In 2013, the District was named the least faithful city in America for the second year in a row. Noel Bilderman, CEO of Ashley Madison and owner Avid Life Media, offered an explanation that you'd expect House of Cards' villainous politician Frank Underwood to recite word for word in his southern drawl: "Simply put, the more successful you are, the more prone to cheating you are, and Washington is full of successful people looking for something outside their marriage."
Marriage rates may have increased in D.C. over the past decade, but people apparently don't have a problem overstepping their vows, especially as they climb the ladder of success. How comforting.
