Licensed To Be Unfaithful.



Agree? Disagree?


When will men start taking the blame for their own human failings and stop making everything bad the woman's fault?
     I saw this comment on Bella Naija yesterday. This poster does not blame it on the woman but on nature. (It just never is the man's fault, is it?) Tell me what you think. 


"My view on this will not be popular but that’s the reality.
Blame it on the Coolidge effect! In a letter to his then friend Sigmund Freud,Carl Jung (Those of you who did personality assement tests…chevron,mobile or any global org,must hv heard this name) wrote; "The prerequisite for a good marriage, it seems to me, is the licence to be unfaithful",Jan 30,1910)… Sad but true! Variety and change are the necessary spice of the sex life of the male species.That is a man’s inner reality.
     ....The sole reason why a man exists is to procreate and provide for his offshoot. A man in his lifetime has more than 60bilion sperm cells to procreate with. Do you honestly believe that you will be the only recipient of his sperm in his lifetime, even while married? No! That was why the church kinda brought a check on man’s philandering through marriage. But has that stopped even with the vows? Your guess is as good as mine."


I'm reminded of the comment thread on a blog I read last week. Husband cheated. Wife complained. The male commenters (and I'm referring to grown men, not children like that one who is perpetually in Jupiter) all asked her; what did you do that made him cheat on you?

When women in the forum responded and said they were sure they had played their roles as good wives perfectly yet their men still cheat, the men came up with another one. This is priceless; "There's so much temptation everywhere a man goes. You go to work, temptation. You go to church, temptation. You're driving on the road, temptation. Man is only flesh and he is bound to fall once in a while na. And it is your duty as the wife to help him back on our feet when he falls". 


Nna mehn, what wouldn't I hear? So when a man cheats on you, you should sympathize with him and say "babes I'm sorry that stupid Jezebel made you sleep with her. Don't worry, next time you will not fall for her big hips".

Isn't it funny that while we condone men's cheating and accept it as the norm, we have turned them into both weaklings and less than animals, with no control over the tiniest impulses?

So far we have the following to blame for man's infidelity. 
His spouse- Yes. 
Nature - Yes. 
Temptation- Yes. 
The man- No. 

I guess men are indeed licensed to be unfaithful. 

Thoughts?

  1. People, and not just men need to start taking responsibility for their actions. Men will cheat, and women too...that's the sad truth.

  2. Men cheat because they lack self control. How in God's name is a woman suppose to help a man have self control? It's really annoying :(

  5. Hahaha, thelma I see what you with the Jupiter thing, his thought pattern is definitely not of earth. I was chatting with a friend and he sed cheating is inevitable that it doesn't mean anything, after I told him my stance on the issue he concluded I wasn't ready for marriage :(

  7. I hate hearing that all men cheat crap..all human beings can cheat! A good woman can cheat wen pushed to the wall.. It's the same God that created us ..in his own image o.. Ple take marriage vows for granted .. They don't know it's deeper than words.. It's you making a promise to God to stay faithful and cherish your wife.. Wen u cheat it's like mocking God ..If u cheat, I will slice ur balls off.. Lmfao!!

  8. They should shut up abeg. Unless the person was both drunk and forced into the union he did it willingly. Me i was tipsy taking my vows, i needed the courage if not would have been giggling like a fool or had a nerves issue. But even then i still know what i said and promised before God.

  10. This makes no sense whatsoever. So now men are born cheaters? Like Blogoratti said, we all need to take responsibility for our actions. I know women who get hit on by men everyday, they don't because of that pull down their pants every opportunity they get so, that temptation excuse is exactly what it is, a load of horse manure!

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
