Yesterday after work, I was talking with a co-worker about relationships. He’s married with two kids. He said he agreed with Chris Rock’s statement that “a man is only as faithful as his options.”
I really wanted to ask him, so if you had good options, you’d cheat on your wife?!? But I got sidetracked by the rest of our convo and didn’t get the chance.
I just can’t accept that statement. That implies that men don’t have the conscious ability to DECIDE not to cheat, regardless of their options. Doesn’t give any credit to the men out here who simply don’t cheat because they don’t want to mess up what they have. No credit to the men who know that it’s simply WRONG to cheat!
What the deuce?
I feel like blaming things on testosterone and nature is just a cop out. We all have brains, and we need to use them.
I refuse to believe that my fiancé doesn’t cheat because he has no options. I believe he doesn’t chest because he does not want to. He respects our relationship and recognizes the value of it.
I guess I’m just tired of men being given a pass for cheating, because it’s just innately in them.
Do you think men are just ready to cheat? That they’re just waiting for the green light? Lying in wait for a willing participant?
