The other day, I had a conversation with a few friends about cheating in a relationship and how men and women react differently. Of course, everyone was on a totally different page when it came to whether or not they would stay in the relationship with their mate if they were to cheat.
The conversation came about after a friend of mine found out that her man was cheating. She came up with every excuse for why she should she stay with him and blamed herself for his wrongdoing, which happens quite often with other women. After justifying her mate’s cheating we asked her, “Would he stay with you if the roles were reversed?” She wasn’t able to respond. Did she not respond because of her doubts or was she surprised that we would ask such a question?
Now, many of us clearly know the answer to that question but at the end of the day, people will do what they want to do. In a relationship, a woman is more likely to forgive her man, if he were to cheat on her. But if she was to cheat on him, there would be no forgiving her, period. According to men, when a woman cheats she is emotionally involved and believe that there’s no coming back from that. If he was to explain his reasons for cheating, more than likely he would say it didn’t mean anything.
Let me backtrack for a second before some of you begin to get all in your feelings. This may not apply to all men but there is a high percentage of men who would leave the relationship and not think twice about trying to repair. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not glorifying cheating in any way but it does happen. Regardless of who does what, if the relationship is worth saving then go for it. But don’t be anyone’s fool.
Cheating once can be forgivable, cheating twice that’s your a$$, and let’s not get to a third time because whelp there won’t be a third time.
