The social media page of relationship expert, David Papa Bondze-Mbir, had users engaged in a heated debate on why men mostly cheat in marriages or during courtship.
Infidelity has long been part of our history as humans. And in our digital age, we have lots of movies, TV shows, and music portraying such.
It is difficult to clearly identify just one perfect reason why people decide to cheat on their partners.
According to a publication by focusonthefamily.com, these are the reasons why people cheat:
For sexual satisfaction.
To give a conscious or subconscious “wake-up call” to the spouse. This might happen if your spouse has a different kind of “lover” outside of your marriage, such as a consuming career or hobby.
To inflate a bruised ego.
A friendship gets out of control.
Your spouse doesn’t live up to your expectations anymore.
On November 13, 2019, one of the thousands of followers of Papa Bondze-Mbir, who identified himself as an Ewe justified why men from his tribe cheat.
According to the man who asked to be anonymous, “NO Ewe man on this planet earth is faithful to just one woman. And when I speak of ‘faithfulness’, kindly know what I mean, fidelity. No Ewe man will sleep with just his wife or girlfriend and be content. It’s not in our nature. I don’t know about other tribes, so I speak of my own. We love dearly, work very hard to support our homes. We toil for our families to live comfortably. We love our children, we appreciate our wives, but we keep an extramarital affair on the side to help us focus and stay sane”.
His post had over 20 shares with over 1.7K comments when published by David Papa Bondze-Mbir.
Some social media users, however, described his assertion as a hasty generalization, and not the true reflection of men from the Ewe tribe.
