My very good, many times annoying friend had this display picture up last night and under it he wrote 'I believe prospective marriage partners should take compulsory polygraph tests'
I saw this and rolled with laughter.
It seems that most people who make it to the altar this days are game players who change the game. This picture and the mindset of people I have come across lately point to the fact that the world we live in now accepts people or anyone who cheats. And the reason(s) for this stance range from
a. Boredom with the spouse
b. Too many fine men and women out there who chase them
c. Unhappy marriages
d. Innate nature
and all the many reasons people parade as valid excuses for cheating on the spouse.
I have also heard that lies, not truth is what keeps a marriage together. They say unfaithfulness doesn't mean you don't love your spouse, it just means that he/she just wants to taste something different. Hmmmmm.
I visited a blogsite the other day and the blogger was poking fun at a wife who was celebrating her husband's 50th birthday and said 'Today I celebrate my faithful, amazing husband ..." this blogger began yabbing the wife and mentioned on her blogsite that the woman was stupid and that the only reason she can say all that was because she had not caught her husband yet. What???
Cheating doesn't have to be only with marriage partners, people in committed relationships feel just as worse when the person they trust and have committed their hearts too. I remember once way back, there was a guy I truly liked, he liked me too but came out straight to say to me that he loved women. Ha. I ran. But I have a ton of respect for the dude. He laid his cards down.
This trend of cheating is sooo popular now. For guys, you are allowed to have the chic on the side (like the side dish in a restaurant) and your friends will follow the guy code and not mention to the spouse or (committed partner).
The trend is draining Nigeria's resources because our government officials (about 70%) go this route and use money meant for roads, schools to fund the girls on the side (trips, clothes, jewellery) or boy toys etc. So whenever you complain about Nigeria, remember that the Chic's on the side and the boy toys are draining our funds like a conduit pipe.
I am a bit worried that the trend is destroying homes. More and more children are growing up in dysfunctional homes and the nuclear family unit is under siege. Let us all strive to do the right thing. The ripple effect of this issue is huge. But I guess there is still some hope for Nigeria if 'ordinary' Seun is alarmed by this photo enough to foot a bill across the National Assembly to force all intending couples to to take polygraph tests.
It is just through my eyes. You don't have to agree.
