We decided to validate an Arabic version of a measurement tool (Social Media Infidelity-Related Behaviors Inventory SMIRB) [7, 17] for screen, detect, and research purposes in countries using our Arabic language.
The 14-item questionnaire included short 7-item SMIRB inventory. As a screening tool, the original SMIRB 7-item inventory was the best. For prevention and management, it detects the magnitude and how such maladaptive betrayal behaviors spread throughout our society.
Our Arabic culture may limit our ability to gather information, but these behaviors are considered betrayal, especially when sex behaviors are involved. As our socio-demographic data, first, female participants checked off more items on the perceived infidelity questionnaire than did males. This difference was hypothesized because previous research has shown that females have a stronger sensitivity toward infidelity than do males, particularly perceived emotional infidelity [28, 29].
However, divorce rates in our sample were 6.5% and 8.5% respectively, so factors affecting marital life and awareness of the spouse and children by the problem could negatively reinforce abstinence and obligate engaged people to seek help. While one-third of U.S. divorces cite Facebook [30, 31], few studies have examined problematic online infidelity-related (IR) behaviors (e.g., cybersex, befriending romantic interests or attractive alternative partners). The few empirical studies on IR have focused on accounts of those who found their partners cheating or characteristics of those who sought IR via chat rooms . Other studies have expanded our understanding of infidelity beyond traditional sexual and emotional behaviors to include internet and social media related infidelity behavior .
The results of this study suggest that the Arabic version of the SMIRB has good reliability, internal consistency, and construct validity in Egyptian society. According to our knowledge, no specific research on tools used to assess infidelity behaviors on the internet, particularly on social media, has been published in Egypt.
Since some people engage in infidelity due to a lack of communication, examining the impact of social media infidelity on family stability and integrity seems necessary. Recent research in various cultures examines this effect. For this regard, this study was conducted to validate the Arabic version of Social Media Infidelity-Related Behaviors Inventory SMIRB.
We also found that some internet behaviors are not sexual or emotional in nature (secretly sending personal photos or information) but for some people, these behaviors are still considered a betrayal (Total = 31.21 ± 17.14). This result is also consistent with previous studies have only used limited tools to investigate such as internet Infidelity Questionnaire of Docan-Morgan and Docan  which asks about online dating, virtual love and sex, and sharing personal information. In an open-ended interview, 294 online infidels. Then they were divided into six groups includes use the internet to play games and have virtual sex .
Due to the high alpha score of Cronbach’s tests (0.965 in the present study) it can be concluded that there is high internal consistency between the14 items. Also factor analysis showed that Factor I was Infidelity behaviors and effect (29.62%), Factor II was associated psychiatric illness (12.00%) and Factor III was family awareness (10.00%).
In the research of Docan-Morgan and Docan, Cronbach’s alpha for the first factor (superficial/non-formal activities) was 0.95 and the second factor (targeted / busy activities) was 0.92.  Conversations with an online partner, discussing daily issues, problems and news are all part of it. Virtual sex with online partner, daily emails about regular issues, personal photos, making plans to meet in person are all examples of third factor (sexual activities) with 12 items. It was 0.22–0.81 for items in the first factor and 0.439–0.81 for items in the second .
Because, as Young  stated, betrayal has three distinct components: sexual, emotional, and porn. The findings of this study suggest that having internet relationships outside of marriage is as real and important as having real-world relationships, and thus a betrayal of real-world relationships.
The results of the questionnaire and factor analysis showed that infidelity behaviors on social media can be understood on a continuum from simple chatting to personal information exchange, intimate information and relationship, and finally marriage affection with inter-spousal conflict. 
Mental health issues may also explain “why some people are involved in such relationships?”, as 13% of participants were on psychotropics. Mental health issues may also explain “why some people are involved in such relationships?”, as 13% of participants were on psychotropics. Difficulty navigating modern life is a risk factor for developing psychiatric disorders and altering young people's psychological profiles . 243 married/cohabiting couples were studied (female 177, male 66). Infidelity and SNS intrusion may be linked. 
This study's findings should be interpreted within those limits. A total of 22 participants dropped out and refused to answer the entire inventory for the second time, others refused to share, some changed their answers between the first and second reliability assessment, and a group refused to answer some questions until we reframing and editing questions.
Despite our cultural background and the fact that this study required 11.5 percent of single people to imagine a partner, the majority of participants were married (67%). As the use of media grows and virtual interpersonal relations become more common, we expect future research to dig deeper into the relationship between technology and infidelity [9, 12, 15].
