Three women and two men explain their reasons for infidelity.
Heck, with the commonness of the things one hears, cheating and infidelity might as well even be on the rise
5 people who have treaded this path reveal their reasons for doing so:
“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
"I felt all men cheated and so I should just strike first. That was a huge mistake.” — Gift, 31
"He was steadily becoming more religious, and what we wanted out of our sex life was very different. The decision to embrace his brand of religion only worsened the case.
“I ended up shagging a guy from work” – Natasha, 27
“My babe was posted to Kaduna for NYSC and I was in Lagos. It was difficult to hold in the need for sex and I caved after four months.”
“I’m not proud of my actions though, and till today, she still does not know about it.” – Bamidele, 28
"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.
