Extra-Marital Affairs Down Significantly In March — Survey

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – A survey just released by Pubicus, International (P.I.) showed that reports of Filipino extra-marital affairs dropped significantly in March this year.

The survey, conducted during the last week of March coincided with Fire Prevention Month in the Philippines. It showed the numbers reduced to 3 per 100,000 population, compared to the previous month’s 33 per 100,000 population.

Researchers at P.I. attributed the low numbers to the highly effective fire prevention campaign of the current administration.

One particular public service announcement released through news and social media and via giant billboards said “Ngayong Buwan ng Marso — Huwag maglaro ng apoy!”

Maglaro ng apoy” (play with fire ) is part of a Filipino dictum that refers to people engaging in extra-marital affairs.
