BJ'S BLOG 05/03/13 "A Man's Instinct?"
Yesterday, we read a message from Rock-A-Holic Emily who is not happy with what she found in her boyfriend’s luggage.
The other day when her boyfriend returned home from a trip he took with some friends, she helped him unpack and found condoms in his suitcase.
When she asked why he had condoms with him he said it was “a man’s instinct” to bring some condoms on a trip in case anything “goes down” so he could be safe.
He swore up and down that nothing happened but Emily is wondering if this is as bad as cheating and if she should just kick him to the curb.
I am dumbfounded that she believes that this is something monogamous men do while in relationships. When is ever ok to prepare for non-monogamous activities when in a monogamous relationship?
This is what happens when women have more to bring to the table, financially, than men.
What does she have going for her that he is going out and cheating on her but still comes back home to her. My bet is that he is staying because she is helping make that place comfortable.
This is why, sometimes, it’s best to live on your own when you’re in a newer relationship. How many people stay in bad relationships because they don’t want to deal with the hassle of moving? They get comfortable in their home; they wouldn’t be able to afford it without the other person so they just stay in an awful relationship. Find a way to live by yourself or have non romantic roommates in your life, that way you won’t be a slave to a relationship that is bad for you.
