The latest study reveals that one in three "bachelors" and "bachelorettes" cheat on their partners during their freedom parties.

The survey also revealed that 92 percent of people who've cheated said they'd keep their secret affairs from their betrothed.

However, 74 percent ff the respondents who want to hide their indiscretions said they are worried that their friends or family would expose their lewd pre-nuptial behaviors.

Drunkenness was the top reason for infidelity, with 76 percent of respondents reporting that they were too drunk to handle the situation.

Other reasons of infidelity include having cold feet, feeling stressed, enjoying the free hall pass or relenting to peer pressure.

"I think it's no secret that when full of alcohol and banter, things can get out of hand on these events and one of these things is the issue of cheating," said a spokesperson for vouchercloud, who sponsored the survey, according to Daily Mail.

"Many people see this as their chance for a final fling before finally settling down. We were surprised to see that a good two thirds of the country remain faithful even in the excitement of their celebration," he said.

"Concerning the findings on strip clubs, it seems that those who partake in these are obviously well paid or manage their finances pretty well! An average spend of £120 per person is a large chunk of money from the pre-nuptial party budget," he concluded. "Let's hope it was worth it, and not something they regretted the next morning when they woke up with a sore head!"
