Cheating is the worst anyone can do to their partners and there is very little chance that things will work out after your partner has cheated on you. It is hard to defend cheating and the excuses are always going to lame. It is hard to identify whether it was intentional.
Sometimes it isn’t really possible to control your emotions and sometimes the relationship itself is not strong. Obviously, there is no right reason for cheating and hence, there is hardly any valid excuse for the same. Here are 5 lamest excuses people make after they have been brutally cheating on their partner –
It is all your fault
The easiest way out of any situation is to lay the blame on someone else and the society has a penchant for laying the blame on the victim. There are many reasons one finds to lay the blame on their partner such that; their partner doesn’t have the time, their partner isn’t making them happy and so on.
However, these words are as lame as the all classic ‘it is all your fault.’ It just shows cowardice on the part of the offender and his or her unwillingness to accept the mistake. Needless to say, the cheater in question is completely stupid.
It was not Intentional
This can be forgiven in rare cases when it was a one-off. However, this entirely depends on how far things have gone. If it has gone as far as having a disposable phone just to contact the other person, then it says a lot of things.
Yet, if the same has happened only in the heat of the moment and the person promises not to repeat it again, you might want to consider giving them a chance. However, nothing changes the fact that what they did wasn’t correct.
Blaming it on the relationship
This is as bad as blaming the partner. In fact, this is worse! For, now you aren’t just blaming your partner but the entire relationship. It is best to man up and deal with it like an adult rather than beating around the bush.
Either you deal with the problems in the relationship and work them out or you break up like a sensible person. There is no way you should cheat on your partner and hurt them. The worst you can do after this is blame your relationship for your own fault.
Blaming it on the drinks
For the nth time, stop blaming something or the other and own your faults. It takes a man/woman to own his or her own faults and it is a good idea to not blame your partner, your relationship or alcohol. If you really love your partner, you will not cheat under the influence of alcohol either.
It is worst to cheat under the influence of alcohol because you are implying that you aren’t happy with your partner and it plays when you aren’t in your senses. Doesn’t this mean that you have some issues to sort out with your partner?
It wasn’t meant to last!
While this may be true, you don’t have to rub it in by cheating. If that is how you have begun to think, it is better that you talk to your partner and break off. After all, everyone wants an everlasting relationship but not everyone has everlasting luck! It is good to be as honest as you can with your partner and let them know of your true feelings. For, beating around the bush will not get you anywhere and it is injurious to the two of you.
Of the things one looks for, loyalty in a relationship is most sought after and hence, it is wise not to hurt anyone by cheating on them. It is extremely unfair to the other partner who has been loyal to you.
If you are cheating after marriage, then you have fallen to the lowest levels possible and it is best that you sort things out with your partner and either work things out or move on. After all, we are all humans and deserve to be treated like humans. While cheating may be a very human mistake, getting hurt is equally human.
A lot of people often make excuses for their behaviour instead of owning their mistake. It is extremely lame and inhuman to do so.
