DO MEN CHEAT MORE THAN WOMEN?
This is a frequently asked question, and a controversial one at that, as a lot people hold different views concerning this one. Some people think that women cheat more, but are just better cheaters than their male counterparts, while others simply believe men cheat more, because there are so many stories about men cheating, and men being ‘naturally polygamous’. But the irony to all of these is that there are factors that contribute to both perspectives, and I would like to highlight those factors first.
The first thing that we should bear in mind is that the society as accepted men as disloyal beings who are unable to stay committed sexually in marriages, or mere relationships even, especially in the society we live in. There are male folks who are polygamous today either because their religion or their tradition allow them to be. Some men even use phrases like ‘a man cannot continue to eat only rice, he’ll get tired, he has to eat other variety of foods’, because they have the common belief that men are ‘naturally polygamous’. Therefore, a lot of males cheat without seeing the need to hide it. Some wives do not even have a problem with seeing their men cheat, as long as he still continues to perform his financial duties as their husbands. This is exactly why we see a lot of stories about men cheating, because a lot of them do not see the need to hide it, since ‘men are naturally polygamous’. This whereupon is the major reason why blokes are said to cheat more.
For ladies on the other hand, cheating according to our society is not allowed, consequently, they have to be smarter when it comes to cheating. It’s easier for a female to forgive her cheating husband than for a man to forgive his cheating wife, because a woman can easily see her man’s cheating as normal, since that’s what the society calls it, unlike her male counterpart, who cannot even afford to tell anybody his wife cheated or is cheating, because he’ll be seen as the husband of a ‘hoe’, which isn’t a good reputation. This therefore explains why men are seen as the gender that is more likely to cheat.
This is not to say that men cheat more than women, it only just means both genders cheat, but it is only acceptable with one of the sexes, making it seem like the male gender cheats more, whereas females cheat as well, maybe just as much as blokes. Whereupon, its is not quite clear with gender cheats more.
