COLORADO SPRINGS - Ashelymadison.com, a site that promotes extramarital affairs and connects cheaters says that the Briargate neighborhood has the most cheaters in Colorado Springs. According to the site, of the 43,000 users in Colorado Springs, Briargate boasts the most, followed by Powers and Northgate.
"The Colorado Springs data is consistent with what we've seen in other cities," says AshleyMadison.com founder and CEO Noel Biderman. "Affluence is a common element found on most cities' top ten lists while the proclivity to cheat often goes hand in hand with opportunity. Those with discretionary income and freedom to travel are even more likely to stray."

Focus on the Family says they're not surprised by the study. They agree with AshleyMadison.com that money is one of the reasons Briargate did so well.
"With higher levels of discretionary income there's more opportunity to have an illicit relationship be secret," says Jared Pingleton, clinical director of counseling at Focus on the Fmaily.
