Have you ever noticed that men who engage with women outside of their primary relationships or even those who sleep with a married woman are never called home-wreckers? This term is, somehow, specifically and exclusively reserved for women.
In fact, we say things like “boys will be boys,” as though we expect men to cheat, and then we proceed to blame the other woman.
I mean, truthfully, we don’t even direct much criticism towards men; the legacies of Martin Luther King Jr. and John F. Kennedy remain virtually unblemished by their marital infidelities.
Unfortunately, however, women tend to be judged more harshly than men for their roles in unfaithful exchanges. For instance, people STILL despise Alicia Keys and Gabrielle Union for their reported roles in dissolving a marriage through cheating. On the other hand, we have practically excused Swizz Beats and Dwyane Wade.
Sure, what these woman allow to happen, or even possibly set in motion, is absolutely wrong, but I think that’s it’s important to understand that there can be no “side chick” without a man that is open to having one.
Obviously, I am not advocating for women who knowingly chase after married or an otherwise involved man, but here’s the way I see it… Single people ARE NOT responsible for the strength of your relationship.
Thus, men in monogamous relationships are 100% responsible for breaking their commitment and are, in fact, the only home-wreckers in this scenario. Now, of course, if the women is the individual in the relationship, then she can be aptly named a home-wrecker.
In conclusion, you can only be a home-wrecker, at your home address.
What do you think?
Is the blame 50/50, or are those in monogamous relationships 100% responsible for breaking their commitment?
