CANTO ORTIZ, Jesús María; MORENO JIMENEZ, Pilar; PERLES NOVAS, Fabiola e SAN MARTIN GARCIA, Jesús. The role of culture of honour, sexism and jealousy in response to partner infidelity. Escritos de Psicología [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.1, pp.09-16. ISSN 1989-3809.
The aim of this study was to investigate whether a culture of honour, sexism and jealousy influenced the type of infidelity (sexual or emotional) experienced by the participants. A total of 170 university students (80 men and 90 women) participated. They responded to six dilemmas indicating which type of infidelity most affected them (sexual or emotional) using a culture of honour scale, a sexism inventory and a jealousy scale. There were differences between men and women only in two dilemmas. The influence of a culture of honour, hostile sexism, benevolent sexism and jealousy on sexual and emotional infidelity was analyzed. Women who scored high on a culture of honour, benevolent sexism and jealousy were those who felt most affected by sexual infidelity.
