OKLAHOMA CITY -  Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so many people will be focusing on their relationships.

Most studies say one in five married people admit to infidelity in their relationship.

Many people believe men are more likely to have an affair, but experts say women are becoming almost as likely to cheat.

However, it is not always a sexual affair.

Women are more likely to have an emotional affair.

Some of the warning signs of infidelity are as follows:

  • Living in a city
  • Going to work
  • Working long hours
  • Takes risks
  • Travels by themselves
  • Travels for work

In fact, 80 percent of affairs begin at work.

Experts say you know a relationship has gone too far if you would be embarrassed or ashamed if your significant other found out what you were doing or what you were saying.
