January 8 may seem like just another day.

But it's not.

It’s been revealed that January 8th is the day your partner is purportedly most likely to cheat on you.

Data from thousands of cheaters has found that the New Year is a particularly popular time among those who are unfaithful.

Gleeden, a dating site for people looking to cheat, revealed that its website is the busiest on the second Monday after Christmas.

This means January 8 is the day your partner is most likely to stray in 2018.

The site, which has a whopping 3.3 million members, says user activity always increases in the New Year.

A Gleeden spokesperson revealed on the second Monday after Christmas "the site also recorded an increase in registrations of more than 320 percent.”

“This trend is observed throughout the month of January.”

Interestingly, 52 percent of people who said they were likely to cheat during this time revealed it was because they wanted to “regain their freedom” after the festive season.
