I agree, there's definitely a double standard. The reality however is that modern marriages are a partnership of equals so what is good for the goose is equally good for the gander. Women stay and work on it for the kids, don't see why a man doing the same thing means he's a "simp".

Imagine people suggesting violence and cruelty as a response to cheating because "alpha male". May toxic masculinity not kill you people and your families. As for me, I chose differently. I may leave in the end but it will be on my own terms and in a healthy manner that considers the wellbeing of my children.


Nairaland boys will rather shoot themselves and end it all, than accept this basic truth, their online personality must remain untainted for thier sanity's sake.

Your response so far has been top notch and mature, at least you are making boys here realise that initial gra gra is never the best, and marriage is not something that can be erased with a click, I'm married by the way, and I can confidently tell you, it has not been easy, can't relate to your situation though.

Once again goodluck in whatever you decide.

I sense you are a lady. You won't understand what it feels like for a man's wife to tell him without any remorse that she cheated on him. It means that the marriage is technically over, because a woman who loves and values her marriage will feel some guilt and remorse. There is no love in that home anymore. There is no point in trying to save a ship that is destined to sink. They should seperate temporarily because be will end up loosing his mind if he doesn't take some time off to heal.

It's about 3 weeks since I found out and it's been getting easier to deal with by the day. Today though has been a particularly difficult day emotionally. Not entirely sure why as I thought I was coping better. I'd began journaling daily, focused more on my fitness and a good diet, and continuing to be there for my kids. I'm also now more accepting of the whole situation and moving towards thinking about what's the next best step. My partner on the other hand still doesn't give a reconciliatory vibe which is what is setting me off I think. I guess also that it's a roller coaster and there will just be bad days. Have you been through infidelity? What was the first month like?

How can a prostitute commit adultery?

I think the your last sentence applies to you and the other poster I quoted.

Justify whatever shenanigans you want to, leave the Bible out of it or quote it correctly.

@bold:
For someone who claims to read the Bible, the recurring Biblical themes of Mercy and Grace clearly skipped you.



Coming from a silly feminist that doesn't differentiate Grace and Mercy from betrayal. An adulterous woman can be forgiven but must be sent away. I'm sure you are even worse than the useless wife of OP

You can not discredit the experience of males. And because you don't agree with it doesn't makes it invalid. And by by bad preferring bad boys, he is referring to a man with spine, that is capable of putting her in her place and dishing her karma if needed, not a man where anything goes. A spineless man-child.

I will continue to discredit the baseless experiences of males, especially the wannabes on nl, cos it is very much invalid, especially coming from bunch of minute few living on nairaland out of the millions of men out there, which doesn't make their very funny thought process the utmost fact,

So your definition of a bad guy is the one with a spine that can dish out revenge at will, so the person i quoted means we ladies like karma dishing guys cos they have spine, really? So all good guys are spineless right?

The things we see on nl sha.....

Some 3 weeks ago I confronted my wife about a man she'd been seeing. She unapologetically told me she had slept with him and wanted a divorce. This is my attempt to process this shock to my system and heal from the trauma.

I read some of your replies on the first page. I have to ask not that i need you to answer but what's your sex life like. Your wife seems to have caught a new flame. Is everything alright in that department between the both of you.

Of course, I have a lot of shortcomings, I'm not going to pretend that's not the case. I've been negligent and inconsiderate many a time. Generally not deliberately and I try to apologize and right the wrongs where possible.

Like I've posted several times, marriage has its ups and downs as it's 2 imperfect people trying to forge a life together. What I haven't done though is have sex with another woman.

Finally, I'm afraid of all the people here that seem to think that love and commitment is something you can just turn off like a tap. It's not that easy and I of course want her to do well considering the difficult circumstances we're all in.
A great many of them, majority in fact are not even married so it is very easy to condemn a man trying his best to salvage a very bad marital situation. You should know by now that the singles on Nairaland are the most vocal and opinionated on marital issues.

If a man can do it, a woman can. Especially a fed up one. Don’t let it surprise you.

I do sympathize with the OP. He seems gentle, introspective and kind. Not the type who deserves it.
pansophist:
The day a woman will flaunt her unfaithfulness in my face, and confidently ushering me a divorce letter, is the day I'll shoot myself. Like seriously, man, how can you let yourself go so low that your wife can do this to you? In life, the battle are usually won by being a stronger person yourself, and others will fall in line. She sees your weakness hence, she did this to you unapologetically.

I'm not referring to her cheating because you can be a president and your wife would still cheat, but I'm referring to the confidence in bad deeds, and her conviction that she can easily dispose you, and not threatened by your worse and unpredictability even though she is the cheater.

If you're honest with yourself, you'll admit that what pains you the most is not even her fidelity, but how she disregards your person despite it. How even though she is the guilty one, holds the power, and you, the victim, have to be fighting for negotiation. You've let yourself go so low, that you're esteem have been vacuumed. Now she wants to elope with her partner in crime, and convinced that you're tamed, like a rabbit, you are incapable of being their karma. It starts with you. Go heal yourself, and lots of thing will fall naturally in place.

2 days after I found out and going through emotional turmoil. I resolved to do the Christ-like thing and give the marriage a chance. I spoke to her at length and tried to convince her of her folly. I then made a candle-lit dinner at night and bought some flowers. I then extracted a commitment to work on the marriage for 6 months.

So imagine my horror when 2 days later I find out she was still talking to her affair partner for hours. Omo this wahala is even deeper than I thought.

Oga not simping, but how are the bolded "Christ-like"? You will only urge any lady to plunge further by pleading and pleading so weakly. Should she stay based on your sympathetic plead? You are as good if not better than any man out there, show it in a better way, this one is high-level simping

Learn to live and let live and you will know peace. Your wife as moved on or at least declared her intention to move in, you should find thw upsides to having to "live" again unfettered again and cherish it.

Wow smh, if wives had the guts to be cruel to the cheating husbands, I think infidelity won't be as rampant as what we have today.

And I wish they would be cruel or start being cruel grin Some of these mails think they have the monopoly of cheating, meanwhile they can't handle half of what they dish out. See the way they almost broke the internet over Moyo Lawal's matter.

@Bhus21, my post is in no way directed at you specifically, I am just making a point in response to June.

I'm sorry about what you are going through, I admire your desire to keep the family together for the sake of your kids, but twice now in my life I have read somewhere that staying together for the sake of the children is not always the best. Because, the parents end up doing more harm than good to their kids and those kids would have been better off if their parents parted ways.

One guy from a troubled family background said, he wishes his parents had just divorced instead of opting to stay together for their sake, cos they made them (the kids) miserable by their constant fights and a home full of strife/animosity. Perish the thought that children from broken homes won't amount to much, will be severely affected, yada, yada, yada. Some of these things society tells us are just nonsensical myths and not always a reality for everyone. What you fear may not even happen sef!

I am not advocating divorce but I want you to think, how do you even fight with someone if they're not willing to get into the boxing ring with you? You want to fight for your marriage and home for the sake of your kids, but your wife is not willing to fight for these things, along with you. Every relationship is a two way street, the employer and employee one, the husband and wife one, parents and children as well, it won't work if it's a one way street. Do not limit yourself to the thought that my children will suffer if so so so and so happens. It may not happen
