Like a popular hip hop song said, "Women lie, men lie". Lying usually comes with unfaithfulness in a relationship and more often than not, it is the beginning of the end of a lot of love affairs in Ghana and everywhere.
An affair may be strong yet, a partner would cheat. Contrary to what most counsellors and books would teach, cheating, especially if it happened once and not more, is not a sign that the love is finished.
Women and men are brought up differently and this is very noticeable in the ways they go about their affairs. Therefore, the reasons for which a man may cheat could be very different from why a woman would.
YEN.com.gh outlines three reasons why a man in love could cheat with another.
1. Proving to himself that he is attractive
When relationships last for a long time, the partners begin to get used to each other. That is a very dangerous period.
Physical attraction may be a problem in that stage although both partners have a strong emotional connection. That is one point where a man could cheat.
At this point, he may want to prove to himself that he is still attractive.
2. The case of the ex
Having an ex whom a man continues to love does not mean that the man cannot move on. A man may be happy with another partner but still aware that a particular can cause trouble if she wants to.
If care is not taken by such a man, they will be unfaithful to their current partner just because they are weak for their ex.
3. Sheer curiosity
Curiosity may kill the cat and a thousand more love affairs. Some men love to take on opportunities they do not really need.
So although they may respect and love their partners, curiosity takes the better of them and leads them to be unfaithful.
