Girl Spice: Abuja Wives, Come & Get Your Men



I only noticed him when he stopped to ask me if the ATM worked.

Yes it does, it paid me. I replied not looking up like was typical of me.

Then he said “Oh Thank God! “, visibly heaving a sigh of relief. That’s when I really looked at him.

He was cute. The lower part of his face was covered in black stringy strands leaving his lips looking pink in the middle of all that black. I’m kind of a sucker for the beard gang thing.

I smiled as our eyes met and then he said “Wait a minute! I don’t always get to see girls your height, Can I call you sometime?

Instinctively my eyes zoomed to the fourth finger of his left hand.

It was bare. Mentally giving myself the “All clear signal”

I looked up at him, smiled and of course, I gave the digits.

The rest of the day had me waiting for the call, checking my phone every minute or so. Just when I was about to slip into bed, the long awaited call came. The conversation was as good as the face .I ticked box number 1 on my checklist.

Next morning another call to politely ask for a date, I ticked box number 2 but that was as far as I got.

I was waltzing through my day at the office in anticipation for the 6pm date when I remembered he mentioned he worked at the same office with my cousin. Now background check is something I do as much as I can, saves me a lot of time and heartache. I made that call and your guess is as good as mine. He was married! The bubbly feeling came to a halt like a deflated balloon, replaced by a dampening feeling that resurfaced every two minutes.

There goes Mr. Beard gang.

I remember the guy I met last month. Something didn’t quite add up about him. I kept getting the feeling that he was married so I asked him the “How many kids have you got?” question. (That is my code for: Are you married? Just so they think I am okay with it and have no reason to want to lie)

That when he started the “my family is in Lagos” story. And so it goes with many others whose families are in Enugu, Calabar, the United states, you name it. Not leaving out the ones whose families live just behind your street. Yea! Those too

Now I’m sure it’s not news that married men seek other women outside their homes. It’s been going on since forever and will continue till the end of time. But then, here is my big BUT….

I used to think they did this to get sexual satisfaction outside their marriage. (Since some men find it hard to stick to one woman).However what I hear every time shocks me and leaves me wondering what is going on in this marriage business and if it’s worth it in the first place. Most of them say they want companionship, somebody they can talk to. This, I cannot seem to wrap my head around. What is the essence of marriage when your partner cannot fill that purpose in your life? Why did you get married in the first place?

Excuse me but I think I would me more offended and hurt if my husband sought companionship in another woman, than if he sought sexual satisfaction. Not that the latter is a better wrong, but if I were to choose between two evils……. I‘ll just leave that here.

Hey! Nigerian women…Abuja women…Women whose husbands live in Abuja without them.

What is going on?

These men live as though they were single; they pursue women with more vigor than an average single guy would. They are ready to be insulted, embarrassed and still persist.

It is annoying.

There are girls who don’t mind and there are girls like me who do. I am not a marriage expert, but I think there must be a problem somewhere and I am really worried about the alarming rate of married men seeking companionship and love elsewhere.

How did you choose your life partner? Why can’t she fulfill that part of your needs?

If you are a married man in this situation, I want to hear from you. What went wrong? What is the “Mrs” missing?

    I’m married and would stick to my wife no matter what though I believe men are wire to be with any woman that will make them feel like a king.

      Anybody can be wired to do anything. women are wired to be with a man that will treat them like a queen too. However, It’s a matter of choice and self control. Good for you, for taking your marriage seriously.

      I read, that a high number of gay sex workers were arrested in Abuja and majority were married men. How come we are not talking about that. . Is that the in thing now, men sleeping with men for money/power then go back to their several wives. That’s very disturbing.

      Firstly, I won’t applaud you for doing what you are supposed to do; after all we don’t go around applauding college students for showing up to classes they paid for.
      Lastly, I don’t agree with your theory, these cheating husbands may have mothers that make them feel like a king too, does that compel them to want to f**k their mothers?
      I will stick with Steve Harvey’s theory; for centuries women wonder why men cheat, men give illogical excuses, use reverse psychology etc but among men they know the silent unspoken answer, they cheat because can get away with it with zero consequences.
      Their women will stay at the end of the day, that is if she gets to know.

      People give the wack excuse that it natural for men to cheat. Aside from sexual urge there are other things natural to men like anger, jealousy, greed but many many men control themselves and not murder, steal or assault to satisfy that innate urge. Why? Simply because there are heavy consequences so it becomes normal and moral.
      If wives can cheat on their husbands and still have their marriages, can yell at their husbands when questioned about their infidelity, can show off to their fellow women how many young hot buds they could sexually attract and emotionally connect to. Best believe there would be a high number of cheating women as there are men.
      This generation needs to seat up, am sure God intended monogamy when He created 1 Adam and 1 Eve.

      I see what about my friend’s husband who cheats on her right under her nose. They have been living together since they got married. Some men have no shame or discipline. The situation is just an excuse and what about the dad of another friend. He had 4 children already; 2 boys and 2 girls and still had an affair with his wife’s friend. His wife did the woman a favor and took her in when she was homeless. The man has 7 children in total. Please let’s focus on the men themselves and this issue is not new even when I was in Unilag, they chased women. Wife present or absent. It runs in their blood and they need deliverance.

      Thank you Peter. Some people are always desperate to bash married women. It just makes them feel good. They think that seeing some married women suffer means that they are in a better situation not knowing that life has it’ s own challenges married or not. So after your friend’s husband changes like my uncle who became holy and lovely. What will you do. Will you still be happy at the situation. At this jucture, you will start feeling bad knowing their situation has changed. The devil is really doing his job through human beings. He wants to crush what God instituted, don’t be his instrument.

    Its not just Abuja women. Lagos women, PH women, even Gombe Women. Nigerian men are just woman wrappers end of story. Having said that, a lot of people in this generation marry ‘for show’..its as if marriage is trending like. Both men and women dont seem to want to be left out..issue is they marry for all the wrong reasons. I actually believe your story because a lot of couples arent friends..they dont talk…they dont even know eachother.

    My dear generation..marriage is not meant to be a trend nor it is an achievement. these days marriage be like getting an MSc degree…ticking the box and shit.

      Everyone is doing it. I’m not sure if the older generation valued marriage, commitment more bcos I believe a lot used to happen during their time too. But it was very coded, secretly done and advised not to say anything just deal with it. Men will always be men, and women will always be women.
      I actually believe, there are responsible men out there who are dedicated and committed to their wives and family.
      Cheating is becoming a norm, for men and women. Now, it’s at an alarming rate. Nigerian women are part of it too, save all that “good woman” wife for a mumu. Many nigerian women cheat on their husbands. Some still have another bf in their marriage, some still sleep with their exes which is absurd to me. I have a friend, who cheated on her husband. The interesting part is, her husband cheated on her and she was so furious, angry but she never mentioned the part where she cheated on him first until it was revealed by an ameabo. Of course, when the secret came out. He was done with the marriage.
      I asked her, why did you cheat? Her answer, oh I don’t love my husband but I wanted to be in a relationship and get married. Women stop playing victim, you are as guilty as these men you are accusing. Just bcos you are good at hiding it, doesn’t mean you don’t do it.

      My friend got married to a married man in Lagos. One day, a woman called and told her she was his wife. My friend told the woman to present a marriage certificate and pictures. The girl did o. Mother in law said she thought my friend knew. Right under noses in Lagos. Please stop giving excuses. A cheat has never had integrity or respect for his body that is his way of life and the only thing that can teach him a lesson is Hiv

The hubby works n PH, she works in Lagos… we exchanged digits and he called severally/consistently… my conscience wont allow me proceed… it is just unfair… but I never told him I know his family (with 3 kids) and I never saved his line…

      Lol…me I don’t like to participate in embarrassing married women o, so no married vs. single war for me. Apart from the fact I feel bad for them…I’ll be one some day too. And no matter how careful I think I’m being in choosing a husband, what if I still get hoodwinked and end up with panti in the excuse of a husband? How will I feel when I read these articles?
      Yes, some of the married women are condescending and may act delusional like its the girls chasing their men (as if they were never single and pursued/deceived by married men). But I strongly believe it’s all fronting jere. What do you want them to do? We all develop coping mechanisms somehow.
      In any event (in a perfect world), as long as every single chick keeps saying no to married men, and intensifies efforts on doing background checks any guy that hollers, eventually, the guys will have no option but to either stay with their wives, do prostitutes, or start sleeping with each other (in which case we will know that the aye that is doing them has Einsteins IQ)…..

    Men the world over do this nonsense. I met a guy (we both live in NYC) several years ago, he asked me out on a date, but before we were supposed to go out, we talked a few times on the phone. During one of our conversations, I heard a baby crying in the background. I asked him whose child it was and he said his. Of course, I asked him if he was married and he said yes. Needless to say, that date never happened.

    A good amount of married men don’t wear their wedding rings. This is how they attract single women. For the men, it’s a hit or miss situation. They figure there are women out there who wouldn’t mind their marital status. So, if they approach about 5 single women in a week, maybe 1 or 2 wouldn’t mind that they’re married.

    Sometimes, however, a married man will never reveal that he’s married until the relationship has grown and is serious. They mislead you into thinking they’re single, until you fall in love with them. Needless to say, it becomes a messy situation.

    I wish married men would be honest from the get-go and save us all the headache. Wear your wedding ring, approach the women that are only looking for fun and don’t care if you’re married or not. There are plenty of them out there, trust me. Just please, be honest about your status and save some of us the emotional turmoil. Thanks!

    your last question is silly! yes I am single. If a married man approaches another lady for a date , he is already a bonafide cheat and a liar. So why do you chose to believe an iota of the crap he has to spew! Only one thing is for sure he just wants to get in between the lady’s legs as hassle free and as soon as possible! The real players are chatting to about 10 or so girls at a time….. it’s just a game to them ( eyi je …..eyi o je) Don’t you worry your sweet head about madam !

      December 1, 2015 at 3:06 pm

      God bless you! The problem is the fact that we even give these men the opportunity to explain why they cheat and then we turn around and blame their wives. Stop allowing them to explain. They are just liars and thieves and any woman that messes with them is as much a liar and a thief. Forget all this “I fell in love with the wrong man” crap. Women who mess with married men know exactly what they are doing, as much as the cheating liar does.

      “Any woman that messes with them is as much a liar and a thief.” How? Unmarried people (female and male) can sleep with whoever they like, for whatever reasons they like. They’re not the ones that swore oats to be faithful. If a ‘single’ person refuses to sleep with your husband or your wife, they’re actually doing you a favor because they owe you nothing. They might not even know you.

    Well i’m not surprised about the whole Abuja thing, a lot of Abj men are deceitful. I’m talking from experience, as a girl that dated someone in Abuja for a year and found out he was getting married 3mths before the wedding.
    Mind you I visited him there are met his family, he also met mine.
    It’s a long story, but I definitely have learnt a lot from that terrible experience. I thoroughly investigate any man i date, and i love with my head, not my heart. I’m still healing from the experience.

    Shift one side abeg!

    They want fun, you want marriage!

    He only asked you out for a date/outing. Going to places with you does not mean he wants to sleep with you or marry you. Just friendship, companionship and association, killing the time…. But as a typical girl dat you be, the first thing that you though of was 1). his fourth left finger, 2.) him ticking your number 1 requirement, 3.) him ticking your number 2 requirement.

    Life is more than marriage, spice. If you don’t want the fun, ctrl shift one side, there are plenty girls for this same Abuja who will do anything to have that same man, just for fun and not for marriage.

    Plenty reasons why men have other friends apart from their wives. Your wife/husband cant be your all in all. Marriage does not stop you from having friends-both the husband & wife, and yes, of the opposite sex.

    Can we just get over this marriage thingy for once?

    Tell that to my great grand mother that someone was talking to you and you were looking down/not looking at his side…..till he said thank God. You could describe him so well yet you didnt really look at him? huh

    It doesn’t add up cos you both must have walked past each other (at that thank God statement) since you weren’t looking….

Abuja men are weird. A few weeks back I was at home (I live with Uncle and Aunty) eating rice in the kitchen, Uncle screams my name from upstairs to open the door for his guest. Guest turned out to be guests who had turned up to do their Sunday hangout at our place. In between serving them rice, serving peppersoup and drinks, one of the guests winks at me and asks my name and state of origin? I na afukwa? That day sef, I be like househelp even in dressing. Nothing about me said educated or even relative. Everything about me said hired help and our exalted guest was on his way to asking me for a meeting and mobile phone number!

      “Only if he stops sending me messages”. If you really don’t want to hear from him at all, this is 2015 you either ignore him or you block him; there are way too many apps for that. When he’s being ignored for way too long; he’ll stop. The problem is, some of you girls are secretly interested, even after seeing the red lights, then you eventually get disappointed and start being emotional. It is very easy to completely and totally ignore someone you don’t want to have anything to do with. The question is; are you ready to do so?

    Obviously this men married women for the wrong reason. If you can’t have an emotionally satisfying relationship with your wife. uh? sounds most women are more about emotional than physical. I’m equally about both but I tend to get overlooked cause I ain’t into appearance like other girls but I like a guy who’ll take me that way and see past looks to know me. I think most guys in naija might make a commitment forever based on looks, finiances family name, etc not b/c they really want to spend the rest of their time on earth with that person. If you get to truly know someone and stick with them guys it’s so worth it .

    The problem is ‘ Godlessness’. I am a Christian and can only speak from that perspective. The word teaches that “we were born in sin and in sin we were conceived”. There are noperfect people in the world. We are all starting from a place of imperfection. Marriage is no exception. The urge to indulge in our imperfect humanity is always bubbling near the surface. We need to let God in. Into our hearts first as in truly truly oh and the manifestation of that acceptance will trickle down into every aspect of our lives. Western culture has exposed the world to the superficial beauty of the “wedding day” but what they will never give us are the tools to sustain these pretty pictures. God is that tool. A person in whose heart the Lord lives will still have urges to cheat or sleep around but accountability to a higher power will redirect that urge. “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and every other good thing will be added unto you”. We’ve gotta start taking the word literally. My sisters and brothers it is REAL.

    Marriage is very complicated and it involves a lot of work! The fact that a man or woman cheat does not mean anything is wrong with the partner. Sometimes in life, u meet someone that you are attracted to apart from your spouse and before you know it, u have done the deed with them. I cheated on my hubby after about 8 years of marriage, was it his fault? Absolutely not . It was mine! I couldn’t control myself, gave in to the temptation of the flesh. I learnt my lessons the hard way

    …Lagos husbands come get your wives too!!!
    Its like an epidemic now in Lagos, married women are very very much on the prowl and they will knock down any hard member with a pulse. Both working and housewives are on the rampage.
    Truth is that the x-men are the way they are because lots of women facilitate this. Whether its because of greed, ignorance, koboko or straight up oju kokoro, the scourge is real and beyond endemic now.
    If only the women can lock up, the men will behave. But N and $, gucci bags, dubai trips, longer throat no go gree una.

    in my opinion, any man who is married and has a girlfriend outside is a cheat, a liar and cant be trusted one bit. It means he wants to eat his cake, and have it. he wants to enjoy the best of both worlds, he wants to deceive two women and i could go on. Remove this thing we call love and address the real issues. what women can do is not pay them no mind.
    If he is not happy with his marriage or whatever, he should cut the vow and ask God for forgiveness… as for having both its NO for me. shikena,

    Hmmmm! where do i start from untop my own experience with this matter please? mine was a simple i attended to him in the banking hall and he collected my number saying it was just becos he loved the way i attended to him and he worked in bank X! i didnt even l0ok at his finger as i wasnt interested. Dude calls me and i save his number and life was going smoothly

    Until he starts to call me very regularly, said we shld hang out and all, no wahala, i even went to a mid week church service with him and he dropped me off. Then he started with the coming to pick me up after work EVERYDay and drop me off at home task. i cant lie it was convenient o. He would always say that if not for the genotype issue he wld have married me before year end, me sef i started catching feelings.

    i decided in order to have my sanity and stop thinking about cheating the genotype thing, that i would stay away. i did successfully o even though he wld still call me and we wld talk for sometime but i rannnn only for me to check his facebook page last month and i realised we werent friends but i scoped one picture of a woman and two children alas! Mr christianly had been married since 2009…

    I immediately called him to tell him that he was evil and he shld stay far away from me as possible. How can some men be so evil? dont the regard, respect or even love deir families enuf to stray… what annoyed me d most was that he would call me at anytime so i didnt even have a clue. Thank God for not doing anything with the fellow. not even a kiss..

    Its funny how people who’ve never been married for one day always feel like they have it all sussed out and freely dish out marriage advice. “why marry someone when you don’t have an emotional connection with them?”, “dunno why married men cheat”” how can you be married and be asking someone out?” etc. Truth is that no one has all the answers in this marriage malarkey. It works out for some, for others not so much. And who says people don’t change over time. You could have a wonderful marriage in the beginning with someone who appears to be your soul mate and overtime it just goes down hill. Shit happen am afraid. Hence sometimes why people crave something different.. Not good I know but it happens.

    Back to the Abuja matter. I think its being unfairly painted by the writer and respondents alike as a one dimensional thing. Sorry guys its usually a two way street. Abuja is equally awash with eagle eyed, ambitious single girls hoping to “bag” a married man! I live here so I should know. These girls need them for companionship, finance, career advancement and yes, sex. Its very easy for unguarded and “wet behind the ears” men to fall for their charm-offensive, especially when their wives are not around. Not on some moralistic crusade but i feel its up to the individuals concerned to obey their respective consciences and do what they believe to be right. This man-woman matter is hard to discern really. Been around since the beginning of time and will still be here when all of us are long gone. And we’ll still be none the wiser..

Steve harvey and Marjorie shud please tell us how. why cant we be men and women of our words and Bond. what does it do for you to cheat? i say it, remain single, talk to your spouse’s about the kind of feelings yu having towards them, how is it that the person you spent hours on the phone with suddenly becomes the one you can’t talk to?

    Many of these men you mention are very young or are older men that didnt play well when they were single… probably busy hustling to make the doh, and now they have it what else but to flaunt and get any thing they want .. including money.. and young ladies from 18+ – 27 are mostly on about clothes and everything materialistic to impress their friends.. a bf / aristo that spends on them gives them some sense of importance… and then they loose themselves…. until time starts clicking…
    Now when you hear what they look out for in a man, you hear them say they want men that are GOD fearing, tall dark and handsome and probably an already made man, forgetting that already made DOES NOT HAVE THE FEAR OF GOD!! OR even LOVES GOD IN HIS ATTITUDE, THIS kind of men pop champagne, live the life they see in movies and what these kind of guys do is only to scout whatever they can find, either that or these young clueless babes go for young men that are from wealthy homes with the backing of their rich /wealthy parents who sponspor their wedding and tell them to manage their businesses and they are probably pressured to get married to rich girls from a well respected home that he/they might not necessarily be in love or Fear of GOD with , These guys ends up with her/ladies and they don’t talk, counsel themselves or prepare for MARRIAGE that takes a lifetime, (take about how to deal with finances, knowing that love is not enough in Marriage, learning about companionship, how many kids they want, what and what to do when things go bad, dreams and achievements, and even as simple as who will help with the dishes, or toilets) they just think it’s a bf and gf ting forever, forgetting that it is a lifetime degree where YOU AND HER ( WIFE AND HUSBAND) ARE THE STUDENTS, forever learning , adjusting and it takes work AND GOD is the lifelong teacher… but these folks end up preparing for WEDDING DAY that takes a YEAR to prepare, they get consumed with the glitz, glamour and who and who to impress or opress… or the best pre wedding photos on bella naija , or who striked pose more etc…they probably rushed in and then they realise a lot of vaccum or alot they didnt know about themselves that it will take them a whileto adjust and TO KNOW WHAT IS MISSING . .

    and most times what is missing is that alot of People do not know the foundation of Marriage, some think love is enough and alot do not even read book on Marriages, Seminars, Counselling session at church, Marraige counsellors etc…. People that type, men are polygamous in nature, Men are wired like that..
    Any man that knows what he wants, Loves GOD the way JESUS CHRIST loved us, for who he is and they will be able to love their wives without distracting themselves with Single Ladies…

    1 cor 13:4-8, Heb 13:4, Pro 3: 5-6 there are also books by Dr Gary Chapman ” 5 languages of Love , ” Things i wish i’d known before marriage ” that single ladies ( to prepare for marriage ) and Married people( to help strengthen your home) should read
    All the best . I pray these married men and women , or single ladies/guys that sleep with married can get the picture and try and work things out … and also realise that Marraige is hardly perfect, but you can work out your imperfections by doing the right thing , so you can grow old and have an enjoyable life.

    Abuja have lots of cute married young guys. And they are so free with women, forming Mr Friendly and Mr Kind. They would treat you so well, like a queen that if u don’t take time, you go begin fall for another person husband.

    I’ve been living in Abj for over 6 yrs, and I can tell you that married men pursue single girls with reckless abandon. Politicians are the ones known to pursue ‘runs girls’, directors of ministries, parastatals and other men in that category go after decent girls. Some live with their families, others are married bachelors. I’ve been pursued mostly by married men. @ some point, I became worried why I attract just d married. It takes a high level of discipline and spirituality to resist them. They would do anything to win you over, super caring, super nice, super everything. why can’t single guys borrow a leaf from them?

      its so easy for yee maidens of shy vision to take up the high road and act like the single guys are not performing. How many of you single girls will ever date a guy who is still struggling to find his feet. And please dont give me the run a rounds about him leaving you when he hits the gold mine bla bla bla. In your quiet moments most’, if not not all of you will admit to want the good life yet you are not not ready to shed the sweat. There are thousands of dependable, handsome, good fearing guys everywhere but their sin is that they “DO NOT HAVE MONEY” period. The hard truth is that keeping relationships in Nigeria is expensive and the ladies are not backing down from their so called maintenance costs is higher than the $ exchange rate.
      So dont complain now about the cheating++++ because you are reaping the fruits of the seeds sown by your com padres.

      Replying @PH boy at maintaining a relationship in Nigeria is Expensive, it’s only expensive when its the wrong person or wrong persons.. There is Dating , courtship.. nothing like bf/gf in the Bible or even christain faith , it’s just a western world behaviour.. You are not an atm or a cash plant. Dating is a form of friendship. Courtship you are prepared to marry and not ready for long ting aka bf/gf. All Relationships are not or should not be based on 90% money.. it can be 55% money, 45 ambition. .. You can have money , spend on your babe /wrong gf and no sense of ambition and you will still go back to square one. The bible says a man “must” work, and it says he that findeth a wife, findeth a good thing and obtaineth favour, they become one, he is the head and the wife is a help mate and for that reason she is help out, this cannot be achieved in a gf/bf ting as it is not GOD ordained, you start chopping or steadily trying to eat her forbidden fruit, which spiritually connects wrongly, as its only meant for a man and a wife and then confusion starts, both of you start planting seeds on rocky or thorny grounds, and bearing fruits of cheating, acting like wannabe wife/husband, she starts asking you to provide, when you are not suppose to.. and he starts to do the same… Thats why thou shall not commit adultery/ fornication comes in, its set for us to try as much as possible not to disobey in other to make life easier for us.. So please focused on your future, be diligent, be ambitious with it, if you’re still young.. dont go into relationships you cannot afford.. Get into courtship, pray for the wife or whoever you want to spend the rest of your life with and if its meant to be, it will be inexpensive, simple and saves you time and less hearthreak… cos one way or the other, to . Now when you get married, because thats when a man and woman

      You allow the married men come near you cos they already have the car, they can offer to take you round, they can buy you anything, they can pay your ticket fee…….all these is the “caring and nice” you mean.

      A single guy who has not made anything and still struggling, will you even allow him talk to you? He walked up to you on his leggedis benz- you just ignore him

    Oga, “shit” didn’t happen. Laziness happened. There are several couples (in spite of the seemingly overwhelming ‘evidence’ we get all the time, including on BN) living out fully-committed, cheat-free, happy marriages. They don’t have two heads. Don’t say your marriage is failing and then fold your arms in resignation. Seek out those that are working fine and humbly learn from them.

    But it’s not just married men that cheat, let some people give you their experiences with some married women in Abuja you go weak.

    Like someone above said, it’s not gender specific, men & women cheat, but I believe men are more brazen & open because of our society.

    Either way it’s sad that so many people do not seem to respect their vows anymore.

    And married men convinced that they have the means to satisfy these women’s materialistic tendencies…a whole mess…

    It is lack of understanding for sex. Sex is a process of sharing DNA and fluids. If I sleep with three people, I pick up pieces of them through their fluids. Then I go to my husband and he sleeps with me and picks up stuff from all three men. Therefore, my husband would have technically had sex or smooched his privies with the other three men. Perhaps one of the men h as one eye, the other one has a decayed mouth but lots of money and the other one is simply not presentable in daylight. The question is would my hubby agree to rub their fluids on himself if he sees them? IF people think about sex as a web of relationships filled with sharing, and they activated their curiosity genes to find out who previous partners were, they would really pause and think about sex. That is how I avoid cheating. Does not mean I dont see a nice man every now and then and think, he is cuter than hubby adn would be a great catch. I do but the spiritual and physical consequences suffice to keep me in thorough check. People who sleep around are the same ones that sit on a toilet seat in public and are the same ones that would drink from someone else’s glass. No boundaries, no hygiene theory. Sex is dirty when you think of it. If you wont wear another man or woman’s underwear, you wont be able to sleep with their partners. Think about it that way and there will be more sanity.

    Aside from my weirdness, my marriage stopped being sensational years ago in terms of interaction. Hubby = too tired and cant pay attention to what I am saying. I tried and tried to talk about work, family, gossip etc, and then I just shut up. So I located an ex who is all ears. No we dont reconnect in that way, dirty minds. We were just very good friends so we offer each other advice that is free of ulterior motives. That is how I let off steam. If I win a big contract and I call hubby, he would briskly say something like “okay, let me call you back” over the phone. He never asks again. I call my ex- and he says “How nice! I am so excited for you. I am a bit busy now, can I call you later to celebrate?” with a smile in his voice, not the irritation from hubby. THen he actually calls back. So I dont have an answer to your question and I am 20 years into my marriage. I have just found my own way to cope and retain my sanity without defiling myself.

    @oversabi that interaction with your ex is also technically cheating. Cheating is not only the process of sexual acts. Anything be it texts, chats, calls from the opposite sex that you hide from your spouse is cheating. If I delete a bbm chat I had with a chick that I know is not just normal hi or hello that I know will make my wife suspect then I’ve cheaten. Madam constant interaction with an ex is dangerous. Don’t think you’re superwoman. If that your ex really wants to get you you’ll fall. How will I fell if your hubby interacts constantly with his ex. I know he’s wrong for ignoring you and all but abeg look for a female friend and share your good times with. Abi you not get run loving female friends too?

      Yes they are. They will say he is the one chasing them but they are the ones chasing him. Liars. As for cheating men. Go and read 1 Peter 3: 7. That is why you have been on the same spot, business has been bad. Deliverance today and tomorrow. Stealing bribery, corruption and keeping affairs with thick madame to maintain big boy status. The Landlord had to call a tenant asking him to think deeply since he sent his wife packing and married another. Landlord chased him away. It was so serious that the Landlord told him that he did not want any rent, he just wanted him to leave. The guy had not paid rent for almost a year.

    Finally got a place to pour my heart. I Hope one day internet brings this up in one of my husband google search, but by then i would have left with th kids to somewhere far away from my pastor and mum marriage talks.
    My husband is cheating on me and i know and he knows i know but he didnt understand why i kept quiet about it .
    I got married to the love of my life , nope he never cheated on me during our relationship , he’s a blunt person who never hides anything he’s doing so i trust . Like am proud of him everywhere and i pray and fast for him . I give him my all .
    He sent a cheating signal when i saw his chat with his EX third day of our wedding , he appologised and said he’s trying to lay all them girls off his back .
    I’m vertified team snoop and i’ve been watching him since then but throughly nothing . He loves me and he’s neve afraid to show it .
    Second signal , one of his ex that we’ve talked about during courtship added him up on facebook, told the girl that i know her and she should back off my page . she reported to Hubby and my husband begged and apologised to me with several xcuses . I belived him and continue my support.
    The third and final chnce i gave him. He was asleep , i wasnt even snooping on him, just charging my phone right next to him while browsing on m own o , a chat entered his phone with a guy’s name that says “hello my crown” . Ha , what is this , i opened the chat and na one babe , i composed myself , replied her like my husband will do . This is 3days to our first anniversary o , Hubby has booke an hotel for us and my gifts are on the way, this is a mani’m always holding up dinner for , i dont eat till he comes cos its our chat and play time . wear friends and we talk about anything and everything. ‘m active sexually even after our twins birth *sorry i digressed*.
    From the chats i engaged with the babe , i saw that they are having a date the next day after close of work at the same hotel he booked for our anniversary . Hubby didnt tell her his married and all srt of nonsense . i realized she and hubby meets anytime he travels to hometown o check on our site . all this the girl told me after i told her am his wife , he did not even feel any remorse , she told to o to hell and if am doing it right my husand will not come to her. Hubby woke up and saw me with his phone and our chats. He cried and apologized and we even had sex but right there i know i have moved on from him. the painful part is he denied me and his children , who does that cos of toto? anywaysi moved on and now i know my husband is cheating like every other useless cheaters out there . yep hes useless too.
    since then he has mastered the art of clearing his chats and all but devil caught him and same ex that added and insulted me on facebook chat came in while he was sleeping too . ut she didnt say anything when i replied. i guess hubby has given her code to know if he was the one or not . to be continued

      Madam please I know you’re hurting, but for the sake of your children and Jesus Christ that we strive to emulate by being christains, pray for your husband. Please pray for him not because of him but because of God and your children, Remember your twins are half of their father, if you condemn him, you condemn half of your children. Anything that happens to him would affect your children, no matter how you try to shield them. Do what Jesus would do and be the better human being. Anger, deceit and maliciousness is so common, be the higher human. Put aside your rawness and bitterness because it would hinder you and your kids from God’s blessing. Your husband like so many men, is lost. Don’t let him get to you. Read your bible and meditate. I’m not saying you should stay, actually for health reason being a very major concern, you shouldn’t, but pray for him. Don’t delight in his woes and do your duties as long as you choose to remain his wife.

      I can’t blame you for the way you feel. Truth is that he deserves every misery that he is going through and will go through. He’s an unrepentant cheat who will always cheat(they never change)! Keep saving! That’s what wise women do… I would totally have done the same if I were you. Gone are the days when women had to stay miserably in disfunctional marriages

      Hugs. Not sure what to say to you…. I would be angry too. Livid. And I would probably do everything you have said above- especially holding on to my money. Hugs. It gets so complicated when there are kids involved… sigh.

    Hi.. This has been very enlightening and thought provoking. I share the same sentiments with most comments: men like to cheat, women also cheat, men lie about it, Abuja men are on another plain, and whatnot. I also genuinely feel the pain of the bitter wife. But let’s put all that aside and be truly objective. I’m a guy in a relationship. I find it terribly impossible to sleep with anyone but my girlfriend. I’m no holy man and I’m not perfect. My downside, which I discovered recently is that enjoy flirting with intellectual ladies.
    It never moves to sex or house visits or anything cozy. And I always state that I’m in a relationship, and not looking for sex or similar companionship.
    Women have a fragile mind when it comes to emotions. That should not be toyed with. Inasmuch as men can be funny with flirting and deceiving the female folk, women are just as dastardly. I’ve met married young ladies looking for boy toys and the likes at very alarming rates. Even those merely dating, playing three guys or four at the same time, with the dominant excuse of looking for the perfect guy, Aunty this is also cheating. If you’re all in, be all in with one, if you’re not, cut him loose and move on. Do not go justifying your ways with the generally presumed nature of men.
    In a good number of scenarios, you get what comes to you, either by being ignorant or by being terribly ignorant.
    A guy walks up to you and engages in discourse you know might lead to dating and maybe a series relationship (or not) then do your homework/research/due diligence. Don’t come crying weight months down the line saying he deceived you. You were ignorant. If I met a girl I’d like to date, I’d research her as best as I can. I’ll go as far a knowing her preferences, if she likes reading books, traveling, going to movies, if she’s church oriented, if she’s dated someone I know/knew in the past.
    Don’t play ignorant.
    This is getting too long, but let me add something real quick. When children are born, there’s an active link between the left and right side of the brain. For male kids, this link gets severed at about the age of two, when the first wave of testosterone get released, this hinders the male folks from thinking both objectively and emotionally at the same time. When a man thinks, he does so wholly objectively or wholly emotionally/sentimentality. Apply that in the outcome of decisions men and women take and see a somewhat different perspective to how men and women reason and take decisions.
    I’m not perfect at putting points together strategically, but I hope this gives a new perspective.
    By the way, this would be my first comment ever here. ☺

    The abuja men, the cheats amoung them will still be cheats no matter what, I live in abuja, I once dated a guy for close to 2 years before d bubble burst, I stumbled on his wife Facebook page and lo and behold there he was smiling like a big monkey on his wedding day. It’s d sane man dat claimed he wasn’t married earlier. Then I knew I was dealing with a seeking cheatHELLO ……. this is a young dude m talking about not an advanced man,, a guy in his 30s,his story was hes seperated from his wife.these days there are so many of them out there, with similar stories, SEPERATED.den the question is why did they get married if they can’t be patient and tolerances. Mar rage is all about that, when u build patience and tolerance I tell you that understand ing will be there. It’s well with us the…… Single and Still waiting in Abuja.God help us

    Some married men cheat because their marriage was fruitless and they are receiving lot of pressure from their family because age is not on their side cos some are already in their late forties.

    #Bitter#wife#. I read your story and felt a bit of pains you are going through. But I want to assure you never to give up a battle still in progress. You must not give in to silly looser resurfacing as his ex. You once defeated them to the trophy: your hubby,in the first place. Hubby settled for you for you are the best among equals. And there are solutions to putting your homes together instead of saving up for “exile”. In my view,I would advised you visit his mother or a well respected elder sister and pour out your worries on how your home is no longer a home but a stage: where actors act dramas. I’m sure these two people should really be able to talk senses into his head. I’m a man in my early 30s. I like to see supportive women; they are muse to an artist; they are earthly rock for men of God;they are courage in the face of adversity. So,never you try to contemplate running from him. You are two good for the two-husbands thing. Let all your kids have a single man to call father. Don’t turn them to APC & PDP: where twins are his and the new to come would be other. You can make your marriage work again. Remember you are just starting the “union” called marriage. All the while,you’ve been in the “wedding” phase. Marriage started the moment AnB begins to work on the small “n” to get the perfect end product “AB”. Until then,you must continue giving your best to ensure your home stands. You made a huge mistake to have stopped praying for him. He needs you most now because he might be under a cause. I order you to pray for him like this. (1) God! Please disjoint my hubby from all resurfacing ex’es tormenting my home. (2) God! I won all my hubby’s ex’es to becoming his wife,help me to win them again and lay them off for ever this time. Get your phone and back date to your day of birth,check the days of the week It falls on,If It’s a Monday,say the prayers 1am on Monday. And If not Monday,just ensure you do the prayers on your day at 1am. In Jesus name,your stress shall become story. And your home will stand.

    im just tired. since we were kids, we’v been told to pray for our future husbands, pray pray pray,,, how many men pray for their wives. its saddening. the emotional pain, stress and breakdown wives go through in their homes. iv been told that all men cheat. i still refuse to believe it because not to brag i am not cheat and i feel if i exist, one opposite sex out there should as well. iv been cheated on countless times. if you like learn all the sex moves in the world, use waist trainer and work out, be ambitious and self-made, be faithful and loving. they will still cheat. But guys, there is good news, i watched an episode on youtube on this thing called love from a particular kind of pastor that bares the same name with my current spouse. it was weird so i decided to listen and he said, the problem is that we women or men go in search of the man we want. apparently we are not suppose to. it is said,”he who finds a wife finds a good thing” . let him find you. most of the time, we hint or flash green light to the kind of man we desire and then let them do the rest of the chase but the truth is in most cases, you chose wrong. you wouldnt know, but eventually you will realise it and wonder were you went wrong, another thing i dont understand is.. these so called God fearing men are mostly broke and i dont know why.. no woman wants to suffer so i think the best decision wait for one to find you and watch him from afar under the shadow of a friend before giving into him than chasing him away because hes not made. that might just be him. Yes, not all men cheat. dear bitter wife, you might have made that same mistake, so if leaving gives you peace of mind then let it be so. some things were not meant to be. i advice every man out there, before finding a wife, first develope yourself spiritually, financially and emotionally. then ensure that the woman who you like has all the qualities you have and more. talk to your mates, share your problems, love eachother, pray together, grow together in christ. if sex is bad, pray together, talk and share fantacies, it can be fixed, be with someone that has the same drive and naughtiness as you so you can explore on bed, you are both teammates. God help us all.
