Do people cheat more when they have money or not?
And while conversing with a certain Ghanaian man about his marriage, she asks him if he ever cheats on his wife and his interesting response goes thus:
“I can’t cheat. The reason… is that I’m a poor person.”
Spurred by this statement from the man, the British journalist, asks him if he really thinks cheating is a game only rich people play and his answer is an emphatic “yes;” delivered without missing a beat.
“When you are rich, you can decide to choose any woman, any lady you want; but I’m a poor person, I have to stay with one lady,” he says.
The man in the tweet above does have a point about how money enables unfaithful spouses run their illicit romantic operations smoothly. However, the decision to cheat in the first instance is a matter of the mind and not the depth of one's pockets.
"Cheating is a choice. It's not about being poor or rich. There are rich men who can afford lots of girls or women, but they don't. Same way you will be surprised a poor man has more than two women and side chics," says Amarteifio Jerry, a twitter user.
