I sometimes find Insecure a hard show to watch because it gets so ironically awkward at times, but I love it regardless.
Season 2 of the TV show has really accentuates the fact that men find it a lot harder, almost impossible, to forgive a cheating spouse, unlike the female folks who find it a lot easier to forgive. Why?
I am not saying women find it altogether easy just to accept and forgive a cheating spouse, but we do find it a lot harder to throw away an entire relationship we’ve built because our man cheated.
We have come to accept that most guys would cheat and we have become more forgiving, unlike the male folks who just want to blow the whole relationship up. The fact that men find it near impossible to forgive a cheating spouse is buttressed by the inability of Lawrence to forgive Issa for her cheating act with her relationship Achilles heel, Daniel.
While nobody is allowed to cheat in relationships, they do that anyways. However, people are always harder on women who cheat which is so ridiculous. Everyone should at least be held to an equal standard.
Do you think Lawrence should have been more open to forgiving Issa? Would Issa have if the tables were turned? I do think he should have considering she had been down for his boring ass for the last five years. She screwed up, yes! But still…
