Cheating has been condemned and spoken against over and over again, yet it firmly remains a reality.

Heck, with the commonness of the things one hears, cheating and infidelity might as well even be on the rise

But why do people keep up this act regardless of its destructive effects, and even though they could just avoid the temptation?

5 people who have treaded this path reveal their reasons for doing so:

1. I got fed up

“I fell out of love but was too scared to tell him and too embarrassed to admit to myself that the relationship was done.

I needed a way to end it by making him end it for me. It was cowardly, I know."Oge, 23

5. Women were hitting on me

"I cheated on my girlfriend because I could. This was about 5 years ago when I went for three weeks orientation camp in Ondo state.

"About 4 girls in my platoon were coming on to me pretty strongly.  I slept with two of them after camp but more painfully, I felt no remorse doing it.

"I had to break up with my girlfriend for some other silly reason because I felt she deserve someone better than I was at the time"Ikenna, 26.
