In our world today, we all know that the level of unfaithfulness has reached its peak. Most people can’t stand the problems related to marriage. And as a result of that, they cheat on their partners. I decide to start this topic so we can know the exact problem that causes it.
From my opinion, I think the woman cheats more than the man.
Here are my reasons.
1.Promiscuity: In our world today, promiscuity among women has reached its highest state; women are now liberated; women have become breadwinners of families too. They support income coming to households; unlike the days of our forefathers when women were mostly at home as housewives basically taking care of the home.
In our world today, its not so. This could definitely be a reason; since her work place throws up the chance of the women meeting a member of the opposite sex and she could be attracted to; and one thing could lead to the other.
2. Sexual Urge: I was reading a Newspaper one day when I came across an article which was about a man accusing his wife unfaithfulness. He asked the court to dissolve his marriage.
When the wife was asked to defend herself, she simply told the whole court that the size of her husbands privates doesn’t give her the maximum satisfaction she needs.
Women today are becoming more and more sexually liberated; but most men seem to be hooked on the outdated and traditional views about sex. They feel sex should be meant for the production of children and not for pleasure.
There are some men who don’t touch their wives; the only time the touch her is when they need children. This could make the woman look elsewhere for sex.
3. Economic Reasons / Emotional Problems:
a) Economic Reasons: In Nigeria today, economic situation is now a major reason why a lot of wives cheat on their husbands. With a lot of men loosing their jobs, lots of women are forced to get into the labour market to help out financially. Most of them earn very little from the strenuous jobs they engage themselves into that they have no choice than to start going after men for cash.
b) Emotional Problems: Some wives cheat on their husbands due to emotional problems; they feel their husbands doesn’t love them any more because he beats them and comes back from work late in the night. So gradually as a form of revenge, they start cheating.
I’d like other suggestions; if you feel it’s the other way round, then give us your reasons.
