Now that we've established that men cheat, let's address the REAL reason why they do. It's not because they can't control themselves, it's not because they're lacking something from their mate. It's because us women allow them to cheat and it's become the norm. Let's go back to where this "idea of a blog" came from.
I watch a lot of television. Two specific situations on reality television caught my attention. If you're familiar with the reality show "Mary Mary", it's no secret that Tina's husband was unfaithful to her. Tina is one of the members of the gospel group Mary Mary. Long story short, Tina decides to forgive her husband for cheating and work things out. There's nothing wrong with that and it's totally commendable, but it brings me to my next point.
While watching season 3 of "Basketball Wives LA", Malaysia (wife of Jannero Pargo), and Brandi (wife of Jason Maxiell) both mentioned being cheated on by their husbands and taking them back. Yes I watch television, but I also live in the real world and have noticed a pattern with men cheating and women deciding to "forgive" them and give them another chance. That's great, but men are cheating on their mate and getting away with it every time a woman decides to "keep him". It's not just the wife or girlfriend that enables a man to cheat.
The "other woman" plays a big part in men cheating. Don't get involved with a man who's in a relationship. It's simple, if there wasn't anyone for men to cheat on their mates with they wouldn't be able to do it.
Men, could you imagine your mate not allowing you to cheat and there not being any woman (or man) out there for you to cheat with? Women have the ability to take control of the situation and have to be willing to do it.
