relationship poll wrapup

17 females answered. Of them, 7 would be more offended by their partner having an affair, 10 would be more offended by their partner hiring a prostitute. Further, 5 expect that their partner would would be more offended by them having an affair, 11 expect that their partner would be more offended by them hiring a prostitute, and 1 expects that her partner wouldn't be offended.

19 males answered. Of them, 8 would be more offended by their partner having an affair, 5 would be more offended by their partner hiring a prostitute, and 6 would not be offended. Further, 8 expect that their partner would be more offended by them having an affair, 8 expect that their partner would be more offended by them hiring a prostitute, and 3 expect that their partner would not be offended.

2 non-gender identified people answered. Of them, 1 would be more offended by their partner hiring a prostitute, and one would not be offended. Both expect that their partner would be more offended by them hiring a prostitute.

So, overall, it's pretty close between the two cases. The sample size I have is too small for any real conclusions, but if these results are any indication, there appears to be a tendency for men to be more offended by their partner having an affair, where the women are more offended by a prostitute (of those who are offended). Oddly, the stronger expectation from women is that their partners would be more offended by them hiring a prostitute, whereas men are evenly divided on if their partners would be more offended by either choice.
