Cheating is an unfortunate risk that comes with being in a relationship. It’s seen as the ultimate betrayal, a violation of trust. It can get ugly, especially when it’s played out in the public eye. Last year, it was Kevin Hart cheating on his pregnant wife, Eniko; and Jay-Z finally coming clean about cheating on Beyonce’. I think that it’s great these couples seemed to be committed to working on their marriages, especially through something like infidelity. Because let’s face it, being cheated on is not fun!
Just speaking from experience, I’d be happy if I never feel that type of hurt again. Of course, what one couple goes through is not as easy as black and white. There are a ton of factors that may or may not go into a person’s decision to stay after the truth comes to light. When I saw these stories, I was instantly intrigued, I couldn’t help but wonder, if these roles were reversed would Kevin Hart or Jay-Z have stayed?
If you haven’t noticed, my last few posts have covered the never-ending topics that arise when it comes to dating or being in a relationship. Clearly this stuff will never get old! And as an avid marketer of my very first self-published novel, Dilemmas Of a Damsel (which touches on the complexities in dating), this week will be no different! So a few weeks ago, one of my followers made an interesting post that got a lot of people talking. And like any normal person would do, I read the comments to see what everyone was saying. Unfortunately for you guys the post was taken down. But it was somewhere along the lines of – if you discover that your friend’s boo is cheating, would you tell? The responses were highly intriguing to say the least. I think when it comes to friends, especially close ones; there are some basic rules that come into play. You know, like don’t sleep with each other’s ex, keep their dirtiest secrets to yourself and so forth. But there seems to be this friendship rule loophole in terms of cheating.
