Nollywood star, Omotola Jalade, has said that cheating in a marriage should not necessarily lead to its dissolution, especially when the offending partner is a first time offender.
The actress who has been married for 21 years in a recent interview with Broadway TV insisted that infidelity was a terrible sin. She, however, urged trestrain and wisdom in handling such issue.
She said, “Every relationship is very peculiar. Should one forgive a cheating spouse? I would say if they are a first time offender, of course, one should forgive, especially, if they are remorseful and they show sign of change.
“Should one forgive a repeatedly cheatinmg 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 perfect 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’s just about cheating and nothing else, one may be able to live with it but when the person is hopeless, that’s another matter.”
The mother of four recently made a long awaited comeback into acting with ‘Alter Ego’, a movie that industry experts have praised as one of the best of 2017. Omotola’s raunchy roles in the movie has dominated discussions on social media in recent times.
