Last week in my random thread, I mentioned I would blog about this whole Sandra Bullock cheating thing. In 2008, I had blogged about Bad Luck Oscar and I guess unless your name is Meryl Streep you are not beyond the wrath of the Best Actress Curse of splitting with your S.O. Ok enough chitchat. This situation is not unique to Sandra Bullock and I don't have my thoughts all wrapped up on this subject because I cannot think or explain the actions of another person. But you have to admit, we have heard stories of cheating EVERYWHERE. Like lately it sounds so rampant especially among the Naija community (let's not even talk about Naija itself). I've really tried to understand why men cheat especially because I waver, sometimes I think just because a man cheated doesn't mean he doesn't love you but sometimes I think it means just that. How is a man able to cheat and still be the most awesome bf/husband to his gf/wife? I have guy friends who cheat and I have tried to ask the reason, some of what I have heard are: "I dunno", "Because we can", "because we do stupid stuff", pretty much no answer. If they don't know, I won't even try to wonder why they do it.
I think the reason why Sandra Bullock's case makes me sad is how much she was in love with her man. Declaring it publicly to all, thanking him at every award show, I mean at the Oscars, the dude was even tearing up. This was a woman who got married at 40 because she didn't trust men like that, she said that Jesse was the first man who made her feel like "he got her back". She stuck her neck out and backed him up with his custody battle for his child. I think that's the worst part about it and cheating in general is after you sort of brag about your man and stand up for him and then it turns out ol' dude has been gbenshing another chic(or several) behind your back. It has to be so embarrassing.
I don't really think I have a point, hence the allovertheplacedness of my post but hopefully you made some sense out of it.
P.S I know women cheat also but for this post it was focused only on men.
