Last night, I was so affected when my friend sent me screen grabs of her husband's sms. Reading the words of a husband who left his wife for another woman... made me so angry that I just cried.
"Move on. I'm happy now."
"Wag mo na akong pilitin. Leave me alone."
"I don't want you anymore."
"Have a life!"
"I'm happy. Let me be."
How do you think should a wife with a small kid react? Aber...
The husband had the affair while they were married. She begged. She begged the mistress to stay away.
If my friend was single, of course I'd tell her to move on etc etc. But being married with a kid, is a different story.
Honestly...I don't understand how a man can say "I love you" you one minute and the next minute beg you to give him back his happiness.
Please help me understand why husbands cheat even if they have no money.
Are they selfish?
Are their penises that huge? Do they genuinely feel that they are doing the world a favor by showing it to every woman they like?
Is it because of their childhood?
Are they mentally ill?
Help me understand.
The night ended with my friend consoling me instead. When I woke up the next day, I saw the calligraphy of Cher and it just hits to close to home.
If this was what the husband was thinking, I strongly believe he shouldn't be excused for succumbing to his temptations.
Marriage is a legal and binding contract.
I also like stuff in the mall but I don't go around stealing those because the law tells me I can't.
There are people I want to strangle but I can't because that is called "assault" and I can go to jail for it.
Same goes for cheating, just because you feel you are not happy, it's not a good reason to have an affair and worst...to make a baby with your mistress.
