Nollywood superstar actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, who has been married to hubby, Captain Matthew Ekeinde for the past 21 years.
n an interview with BroadwayTV, the pretty mother of four wonderful kids opened up on one of the pressing challenges in any marriage, which is infidelity.
When asked if one should forgive a cheating spouse, Omotola said if they are a first time offender, one should forgive. Especially, if they are remorseful and if they show sign of change.
She went on to say that if a spouse continuously cheats, a lot of things should be put into consideration; first the reason why they are repeatedly doing it, the situation surrounding it and the person in question. She said:
“Should one forgive a repeatedly cheating spouse? The first question to worry about is, why are they cheating repeatedly. The problem with us these days is that we are not patient.
The sin is very bad but the first thing we should do is assess the situation and the person in question. The questions are: who is this person really: is that the only problem?
Is this person a perfect person and the only problem is cheating? You have to weigh your options. For me, as a person, is this something I want to deal with? I have met a lady who told me she didn’t care what her husband does.
You can’t judge other people’s relationship, only they, can decide what to do. If it is just about cheating and nothing else, one may be able to live with it but when the person is hopeless, that’s another matter.”
