If you are unlucky to get married to a cheating spouse who keeps infecting you with STDs, would you divorce him/her?
My name is Amanda, a 36-year-old woman. I have been married to Mark for 12 years now but I have decided to leave him because of his chronic cheating nature.
Before now, Mark was what one would call a model husband, father and faithful lover until he began mixing with the wrong friends and suddenly realized what he has been missing.
He started by keeping late nights, taking off at weekends without informing me where he went to and anytime I complained, he would say he has his life to live.
I tried talking to him and pointing out the changes in him but he told me he is a big boy and can take care of himself.
The first sign of trouble was when he infected me with a sexually transmitted disease and when I told him, he got mad at me, even accusing me of being unfaithful to him. But before God and man, I have never cheated on my husband.
I quietly treated myself and abstained from having s*x with him for a while and he later promised to change.
But instead of changing, my husband has gone ahead uninhibited, sleeping with anything that has a hole.
He has infected me three other times and there is no telling what he would bring my way next. I fear he could contact HIV and dump it in me.
My friends have suggested we go for therapy but Mark has refused to admit he has a problem with s*x.
