When you think of Einstein, what's the first thing to come to mind? His theory of relativity? Crazy white hair? That photo of him sticking his tongue out? Whatever it is, it's probably not the fact that he had as many as 10 mistresses in his lifetime. That's right - the man didn't spend all of his waking hours standing in front of a chalkboard hastily writing out equations.
Einstein went through a number of illicit affairs throughout the years. In a way, we shouldn't be too surprised. Men as far out of the box as Einstein revel in the act of risk-taking, and what's a bigger risk than betraying your family with 10 different women?
Though his reputation in the history books may have gone unharmed, Einstein's affairs caused a great deal of turmoil within his family. Most notably, his relationship with his sons suffered greatly as a result of his unfaithfulness. It seems that even our greatest minds have a hard time resisting temptation.
