Why cheating is no longer a deal breaker for me – Toke Makinwa
Toke Makinwa, a polarizing podcaster, has disclosed a shift in her stance on the absolute deal-breaking nature of cheating in relationships or marriages.
In a podcast episode unveiled on Thursday, Makinwa, who had previously accused her ex-husband, Maje Ayida, of being a serial cheater, offered her evolving perspective on infidelity.
She noted that as she has grown older, she has come to understand that women might find it less challenging to engage in infidelity, and the primary factor restraining some is self-discipline.
In her words;
“I think a lot of women need to reject the stigma. If I cheat, it’s okay for the man to do the same to me.
“I feel like I have gotten to a place in my life where you can’t shame the shameless. If I cheat tomorrow and you want to leave I will respect you. If you want to stay, don’t use it to taunt me because I have won the crown of a cheater.
“If I’m going to be very honest, cheating is no longer a deal breaker for me. It used to be; when I was younger, I would never have been able to say these. I would have said if he cheats, I’m putting him back in the street.
“As I grew older, I realized men cheat, women cheat. It’s easier for a woman to cheat, it’s self restraint that stops us. The reason why I’m not quick to put you out is I might be the first person to cheat on you. Forgive me as I have forgiven you.”
