This is an unending argument that has been going on for centuries without a valid conclusion. I have listened to people argue on this topic from different perspectives. A good number of women will always argue in favor of women while a good number of men will always argument in favor of men.

Who is more faithful in a relationship between a man and a woman?
Last week I got a message from a friend of mine requesting me to join an open debate about this same topic. In order to prepare for the debate, I had to withdraw my personal opinion and instead interview others to see what people generally think about who cheats more in a relationship between a man and a woman. The responses were mind blowing so I decided to put them together in this article. Here is what people had to say.
- WOMEN CHEAT MORE THAN MEN, BUT MEN HAVE MORE TENDENCIES OF GETTING CAUGHT.
This response came from a number of middle aged African men. They insisted that women cheat more than men. However, it is easier to catch a cheating man but more difficult to catch a cheating woman. A woman who is in a relationship can go as far as checking her boyfriend or husband’s phones regularly, she will follow him up on social media to see who is liking or commenting on his posts and what responses he is giving to them.
She will not stop there, she will go to the extend of following the women on his friend list and comment box to see the activities on the other end. Men on the other hand barely check to see what the woman is doing, and who is following her. Basically woman takes more time digging to see what a man is doing but men don’t usually pay much attention. Sometimes men are too confident that their woman is not doing anything at all.
IT’S EASIER FOR A WOMAN TO GET A NEW MAN BUT DIFFICULT FOR A MAN TO GET A NEW WOMAN
This is another point that continuously appeared in the interviews. A lot of people insist that it’s easier for a woman to get a new man than it is for a man to get a new woman. A lady could walk down the street for 10 minutes and already have many men asking her out. It is almost impossible for a woman to go out for a whole day without having a toaster. But men will have to get a woman’s attention before asking her out. The woman here is placed in the position of approving a man’s request and trust me they have many requests to choose from.
- MEN ARE NATURALLY POLYGAMOUS
A lot of people especially women believes that men are naturally polygamous and not contented with one woman. Cultures like the African culture and the Islamic religion promotes the idea of polygamy, placing men in a position where they can have more than one woman at the same time. In this case, a man can marry more than one woman at the same time but a woman cannot marry more than one man at the same time
- THERE ARE MORE CASES OF MEN GETTING CAUGHT THAN WOMEN GETTING CAUGHT.
No evidence no case! Although people tried to justify this point by saying woman are only smarter than men and can dig deeper than men, the evidence still remains that there are more cases of men getting caught on daily basis all over the world.There are more cases of unfaithful men getting caught yearly than women. Logically this means men cheats more than women that’s why you have more men getting caught.
- WOMEN CHEAT MORE WHILE DATING AND MEN CHEAT MORE AFTER MARRIAGE
A lot of people argued that women cheat more in a relationship before marriage but men cheat more after marriage. Women engage in multiple relationships before settling down but when they finally settle down, they become more committed to one man. Men on the other hand cannot be with only one woman for a long period of time.They have intervals they must have a justifiable reason to cheat such as when his woman is on her period and when she just give birth.
WOMEN MUST HAVE A REASON TO CHEAT BUT MEN CAN CHEAT BECAUSE OF AVAILABILITY
A good number of people argued that a woman must have a reason for cheating. It’s either her man is not satisfying her sexually or financially or sometimes not paying her enough attention, whereas men can cheat because they see a new girl around who is ready to have sex. Men don’t need to have a reason to cheat, they just need space and a girl available and boom they start cheating
IT’S EASIER TO SEDUCE A MAN THAN A WOMAN
A lot of people argued that men have more potentials of cheating because it’s easier to seduce a man than to seduce a woman. All she needs to do to seduce him is to make him see what he wants to see and make him understand that he can have it anytime he is ready. One way or the other he will go looking for it. Meanwhile seducing a woman requires more than just showing her. To get a woman you must set a trap and then convince her to do it. You need to get her in your space and then give her a reason to do it.
WOMEN NEEDS TO BE EMOTIONALLY CONNECTED BUT MEN DON’T
A good number of people also argued that except a woman is a prostitute or doing it as a form of revenge, she must be emotionally connected in order to cheat but men can do it without any emotionally connecting. A woman who truly loves her man will never cheat on him except at gun point but a man can love his woman and still cheat on her for no reason
MEN ARE JUSTIFIED FOR CHEATING BUT WOMAN ARE JUDGED FOR CHEATING
One of the major points that kept rotating throughout the debate is how men are justified for cheating but women are crucified. The society places men in a position where they can cheat and get vindicated for being a man whereas a woman is judged for doing the same thing. This is definitely looking toward gender inequality where men are given the upper hand to think and feel that everything they do is right, but at the same time it’s wrong for a woman to do the same thing.
A WOMAN HAS LIMITED TIME AND OPPORTUNITIES AS COMPARED TO MEN
In as much as a lot of men tried to discredit this point, it was able to stand the test of time. A lot of people argued that a woman is limited by nature. She has at least 3 to 5 days monthly where she is on her period, then she becomes unattractive when she is pregnant and cannot have anything to do with a man immediately after giving birth. A man on the other hand is not in anyway limited by nature. Few men argued that a woman can take on more men in a single day than a man can take on women in a single day.
MEN ARE MORE REPRODUCTIVE THAN WOMEN
Biologically, men are one million times more reproductive than women. Naturally a man can reproduce everyday for as long as he lives but a woman and can only give birth once in 9 months with a limited time of less than 50 years before menopause. This gives men more opportunities to cheat for as long as possible.
A WOMAN NEED A MAN TO ASK HER OUT
This is one of the points that was heavily criticized by a lot of men and women. Generally, in most societies it is the duty of the man to ask a woman out. However a lot of people argued that time has changed but the fact still remains that a man has to be the man. A good number of people argued that women cheats less than men due to the fact that they need a man to ask them out. It is easier for a man to go for what he want than it is for a woman. In most cases women have to wait and only give signs to signal the man. In this opinion, it is more complicated for a woman to go for what she wants than it is for a man
THERE ARE MORE FEMALE PROSTITUTE
A good number of people insisted that prostitution is a job and should not be included as a relevant point for judgement. However, many prostitutes are dating or married and in most cases their partners are not aware that they are prostitutes. Judging by the fact that majority of the prostitutes are female, it is clear that women cheat more than men.
After listening to the arguments and points by various individuals, I could not come up with a conclusion on my own. In your opinion and coupled with the arguments above, who cheats more in a relationship between a man and a woman? Feel free to drop your opinion in the comment section and share with a friend let’s see what they think, feel or believe.
