10 reasons Nigerian men lie about their marital status


Most Nigerian men lie about their marital status all the time to ladies they want to have affairs with.

The annoying part of these men blatantly denying their wives and children just to have a fling with single ladies is that people have to come to accept it as a normal thing.

When these liars are exposed, you will see men defending them, claiming that they are just being polygamous and that the ladies should have known they were having sex with married men.

Some of these men even take a step further by proposing to these ladies, doing pre-wedding photoshoot with them and renting apartments away from where their wives and children reside just to cover their tracks.

Below are 10 reasons Nigerian men lie about their marital status:

1. Lack of maturity

Lacking the maturity to invest the time, commitment, and energy to work through core issues in their marital relationship is why men lie and cheat.


2. Lack of respect

9. They are not disciplined

Men who hide their marital status show sexual indiscipline. It is only an indisciplined man that gives excuses for cheating. Irrespective of their reasons, hiding their status just to get another woman should be considered a criminal act to cheat others.
