Cheating is a term used to describe the act of going back on ones promise of faithfulness to their partner, and having an affair with another, either briefly or for a long period of time.
Cheating doesn’t just apply to married people, it also applies to unmarried and dating ones, but for the purpose of this post, we’ll put more focus on married ones.
It has been discovered that cheating in marriage occurs mostly due to lust and infatuation, and nothing else, but whatever it is, hopefully, by the time you exhaust this post, you’ll understand that nothing is really worth the risk.
The next time you feel tempted to cheat on your husband or wife, just think about the following…
PROPOSING WASN’T EASY
It’s easy to forget because you have them in your life now, and they agreed to marry you, but remember what you had to go through to get that woman to say ‘yes’. The money invested, the time put into planning, and the anxiety that came with the process. Is all that worth throwing away for something you’re not even sure of? Ladies, think about what your man went through to get you to marry him too.
YOU MADE A SACRED PROMISE
Unless you didn’t have a wedding, there isn’t a chance you could have gotten married without swearing before God you’d stay faithful to your partner in marriage until death. That should count for something!
YOU DON’T WANT TO DISAPPOINT FAMILY AND FRIENDS
Cheating is the closest way to ending a marriage, because no one can truly stand the pain. So before you push your partner away, and cause your marriage great damage, consider the tens or hundreds of people who suspended their engagements just to be there with you on your wedding day.
POTENTIAL TRAUMA TO KIDS
One of the most dreaded things for families is for their kids to grow with the knowledge that their mum or dad wasn’t there while they grew up. That experience isn’t something you want for your kids.
THE GUILT DOESN’T JUST GO AWAY
Honestly, not everyone wants to cheat. Sometimes, people cheat because they can’t fight the temptation. However, the truth about cheating is that like other bad things, the guilt can haunt you for a long time. Even more in this case because your partner is probably innocent of any blame.
S** ONLY LASTS A FEW MINUTES
Are you really willing to throw away a relationship you probably spent years building all for a few minutes of pleasure? You don’t even know what the future holds for you and this new ‘adventure’. What if you lose everything?
YOU ARE ONLY INFATUATED; GIVE IT TIME, YOU’LL FEEL BETTER
Before you jump into the conclusion that you love your new friend more than your wife or husband, don’t forget that there’s a very high chance it’s just infatuation. It usually fades away in time.
