Why do men find it hard to forgive cheating in relationships?
Written by Segun Adekoye | @segunsd
Cheating in relationships is a situation as widespread as flu. It’s a man’s world. It’s a woman’s world. It’s a back and forth argument that usually rests in favour of men.
Can men forgive cheating? Well, i’m a man and speaking from my point of view, we do. Although the whole world around you may advise that you shouldn’t forgive her but we still do. You’ll hear stuff like “man, don’t be dumb. If she can cheat on you now, she’ll do worse in marriage”.
It is true that when men cheat, women are expected to just “get over it” and move on, but when a woman cheats it seems like all HELL breaks loose and the man is usually unable to forgive her. However, this is not the case all the time. For real.
A woman answers the question with:
Why do men have a harder time with forgiving cheating? Because most men are not as strong as they’d like us to believe, deep down they are sensitive, very visual and have big ego’s, the thought of another man touching and having sex with the woman they claim as wifey will drive the average man crazy.
In my own opinion, I believe that over the years, men have the notoriety for cheating in relationships, hence it has somewhat become a norm. Like it’s normal for a man to cheat. You get. That’s why most women say “All men are the same” and that, for me is one of the most ridiculous statements ever made since earth was created. How can that be?
