Bloomberg quotes Betsey Stevenson on high-profile affairs

November 13, 2012

Betsey Stevenson was quoted in a Bloomberg article about the growing attention given to affairs among powerful politicians and business people.

Part of the reason for this change, Stevenson told Bloomberg, is that new professional opportunities for women in the last thirty years have made it more likely that relationships occur between two people in the same workplace. And this can often have ramifications for the work environment.

"Now, people are more likely to marry someone at the same professional level as themselves and they are more interested in an intellectual match," said Stevenson. "When it goes wrong, it's more likely to be explosive."
