When a partner is unfaithful, it is a serious breach of trust. And it is something that may indicate that this person is not worthy or capable of a healthy relationship. People cheat for many different reasons and it is not always about sex.
Sometimes people cheat because they are seeking an emotional connection, trying to deal with a loss or crisis, or seeking an escape. This is not an excuse or reason for the behaviour.
If you eventually fall short, would you tell your partner if you cheated? Here are some people’s opinions;
Seyi: “If I cheat, I will not confess. What’s the point? I am just going to break your heart. If you don’t know, you will continue to be happy. If you find out, I’ll apologize. Cheating is not a dealbreaker for me, I will forgive my babe if she cheats on me. I hope she tells me. ”
David: “I’ll just stop and she won’t get to know about it.”
Emeka: “If I cheat, I will definitely tell my partner about it. It doesn’t matter if it breaks the relationship, I feel like she deserves to know.”
Tani: “Except he catches me on the bed with another man, I am never telling him about it. First of all, I don’t know how that conversation will go or what his reaction will be and unless I am done and want to break up, I am never going to talk about it.”
Victor said he will not cheat ordinarily but he would confess if he does. “To love someone, you must know their flaws and all and I would love her to know my flaws and forgive me so we can build a better relationship.”
Daniella: “It depends on the type of cheating, if I am just texting someone for attention then I will not tell him but if I am physical with the man and I want to stop, I will tell my partner, so I don’t continue.”
