SALT LAKE CITY – A study just published claims to show the neighborhoods in the Salt Lake Valley with the most extramarital affairs.

So, which area has the highest tally of affairs?

Glendale scores the top spot with 9.4 percent.

Of the 48,000+ Salt Lake City “cheaters” registered on, the most affair-seekers live in Glendale, with Yalecrest and Capitol Hill rounding out the top three zip codes.

“The Salt Lake City data is consistent with what we’ve seen in other cities,” founder and CEO Noel Biderman said.  “Affluence is a common element found on most cities’ top ten lists while the proclivity to cheat often goes hand in hand with opportunity.
