I don’t know how much CIA Chief David Petraeus’s affair is costing taxpayers, but I imagine it’s a hefty price tag…

A new study found the average office romance costs a company over $100,000, counting everything from lost productivity to legal fees, after a nasty break-up or if other coworkers sue the company.

The survey also found 75% of people have considered an office tryst, and 54% have actually had one. 27% have had more than one.

Only 20% of people who have had an affair say they’ve been disciplined by their company.

And, only 6% of people say their employer has an outright ban on office relationships.

Listen to what Mason and Nikki had to say about affairs in the workplace:
