Sexual, emotional, and other kinds of infidelity afflict any romantic relationships. It is a common phenomenon in such relations, which is poorly understood and is expressed by many ways in any cultural context. The current research focused on causal attributions and verbal responses concerning infidelity in romantic relationships presented by Latvian residents of different age, sex, education, ethnical and religious belonging, as well as ones with different infidelity experience (N=1083). Four types of infidelity experience were taken into account in this study: (a) persons who have no infidelity experience at all, (b) those, who were unfaithful in romantic relations, (c) those, whose partner was unfaithful, and (d) those, who were unfaithful both with partner. The additional variables were: the term and the number of relationships and degree of sexual and emotional satisfaction with existing relations. Results demonstrate the significant differences in attributions concerning infidelity between the different groups of participants. Implications of these findings and directions for future research are discussed.
