Today has been quite the day I had gone to bed quite late and woke up this morning with a headache, one that I still have even till this moment. The reason I couldn't publish any article two nights ago was because there was no power supply which I had not anticipated, else I would have drafted something. I know that had derailed me from my one-article-a-day target for the month, but I do plan to make up for it before the month comes to an end. As the light came on, I had to put some things in place before deciding to draft my article for the day.
I was already two paragraphs into what I intend writing for the day when the movie my aunt and sister was watching on TV caught my attention. To summarize, there is a going through a rough patch financially, two of the husband's friends will always taunt him about his condition by insulting him with what they think is motivation. Another of his friend is quite sympathetic and doing what he can to help out. Even as far as helping him send his CV out to people.
A woman the wife is close to, someone I would say was her confidant had asked the husband to go for an interview with one her friends in an hotel. Getting there, the husband realised that his job interview was actually an offer to be the woman's lover. He refused, saying he loves his wife and that he can not cheat on her. The woman had replied him saying that it isn't cheating as long as there is no emotional attachment involved. That really caught my attention it is a weird perspective about cheating. The woman had used prostitutes as an example and asked him whether he would call them cheaters.
When it comes to romantic relationships, being intimate with another is cheating, as long as you did it consciously. It doesn't matter whether or not that was any emotional attachment involved. As long as you've committed yourself to another, then anything you do that is a violation of that commitment is cheating. I personally believe that it takes a lot more than being in love with someone and not cheat on them. It takes discipline too. Love is not enough in its emotional sense. It is possible to love someone and still cheat on them if you are not disciplined enough to resist temptations and abide by your commitment. If you have a counter/contrary opinion, feel free to share in the comment section. Another random question for you my dear readers, and I would love your response in the comment section still.
IS CHEATING ON A CHEATER CONSIDERED CHEATING?
As humans, we try to justify our actions to clear our conscience. I remembered a time I had a conversation with an internet fraudster and why he is into such. He had blatantly told me that it was because white men had stole a lot from us (Africans) during the colonial era and also before that, they had perpetrated an unforgivable sin to Africans and to humanity by enslaving Africans and shipping them of to America and Europe to work as slaves and endure the pain of animalistic treatments and inhumane conditions.
P.S: Those were not his exact words, I was just being extra. Hahaha.
I was taken aback when he said that to me, the only question I could ask him was whether it was the people he was trying to fraud that had done the deeds. It is strange to think that could even be a reason. If you ask an armed robber why he is into such, he would say that there is no job, and since the government has not provided any, he has no choice but to take up arms and make one for himself.
Cheating on people is cheating, there is truly no justification for it and we really should stop making excuses just to make ourselves feel better about what we have done.
