In the last ten years the number of divorce cases in Malaysia has gone up by 20% due to unfaithful wives.
Kosmo! highlighted Syarian lawyer Musa Awang expressing his concern over the trend.
Musa said his observation was based on hundreds of divorce cases he has come across over the past decade.
He said divorces were more prevalent among working couples, where the women tend to share their marital problems with other men who then took advantage of them.
Linda Jamaluddin of the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry said that the women's tendency to confide in male colleagues always backfired, reports the Star Online.
She said such actions always resulted in forbidden love and infidelity.
Utusan Malaysia's entertainment pullout Mega Hits reported that actor Remy Ishak, who was rumoured to have been the cause of Maya Karin's divorce, had admitted he was close to the actress because they came under the same management company.
