The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, said: “For those who value trust, loyalty and faithfulness, maybe don’t marry a Yorkshireman. Well, to be precise, nobody from York specifically. For one reason or another, the region is one of the UK’s biggest hotbeds for infidelity.
“The good news is that the rest of Yorkshire, for the most part, is to be trusted. Citzens from Middlesbrough and Rotherham in particular are among the most faithful and trustworthy you’ll find, along with those from Bradford and Wakefield; married couples from these areas can sleep easy tonight.”
