It’s a known fact that unfaithfulness is the bane of most marriages and relationships, however arguments abound as to who cheats more – the man or the woman? For Nollywood actress and mother of two, Uche Elendu, there’s no doubt in her mind that women tend to be more loyal in marriages and relationships than men, hinging her argument on the genes of both sexes.
“Without sentiment, I say that a man has the most tendency to be unfaithful in a relationship”, she offered with conviction.
“There’s a popular saying that ‘It’s in a man’s DNA to cheat’. Most times, without reason or with the slightest excuse, men take the plunge. It’s typical for most men to stop by at bars after work to have a drink with the ‘boys’. From there, most times, they end up on another woman’s bed before heading home to their wives.
Women on the other hand, are naturally composed while in relationships. Their resistance to cheating is strong. This is not to say women do not cheat, but on the average and by virtue of their DNA, they are keepers. They are programmed to keep the home alive and united, they hold the home with prayers, they fix meals, care for the kids etc. Where in this tight schedule does she have the time to cheat? Any day, any time, women are more faithful,” she added.
Uche Elendu joined Nollywood in 2001 and featured in her first movie ‘Fear of the Unknown’ after which she returned to finishing her tertiary education. The Abia State-born role interpreter has a bachelor’s degree in International Relations from Imo State University.
