Televangelist Pat Robertson says all men have a tendency to cheat

83 year old televangelist and media mogul Pat Robertson says that all men have a tendency to cheat and it's a wife’s duty is to keep her man faithful, by focusing on the positive and making sure the home is so enticing he doesn’t want to stray. Robertson said this while responding to a question from a viewer who wrote:
“I’ve been trying to forgive my husband for cheating on me. We have gone to counseling, but I just can’t seem to forgive, nor can I trust. How do you let go of the anger? How do you trust again?"
Below is Pat Robertson's reply...
“Here’s the secret. Stop talking the cheating. He cheated on you, well, he’s a man. You need to focus on the reasons you married him. Does he provide a home for you to live in? Does he provide food for you to eat? Does he provide clothes for you to wear? Is he nice to the children… Is he handsome?”
What? So if he does all this then it's OK for him to cheat? See what else he said after the cut...


“Recognize also, like it or not, males have a tendency to wander a little bit. What you want to do is make a home so wonderful that he doesn’t want to wander, or give in to the “salacious” magazine pictures and Internet filled with adult films.

mimi said...

i understand what he says and i'm a woman. he is not saying all men cheat, but it is in their nature to. and that your husband cheated shouldn't be a reason to leave the marriage, hence the other things he said. i think ladies should stop going into marriage with the mentality that once he cheats they'll leave cos that is a man's number one weakness and you should go into marriage with the mind set that you'll stay with him even if he cheats.
with exception to dogs of course.

Mama Ijebu said...

Linda, I think what he is trying to say here is, don't focus on one bad thing ur husband did (cheating) afterall,they have gone through counseling and she still can't forgive, he wants her to focus on the other good things her husband is doing daily and forget whatever he did dat was wrong before then they should try to find out what ever happened that caused the cheating and pick things up from there.. Don't misunderstand.

"All men have a "tendency" to cheat and it's a wife’s duty is to keep her man faithful, by "focusing" on the "positive" and making sure the home is so "enticing" he doesn’t want to stray" The words in quotes carry the most important points he is trying to convey. And Linda, the caption of your post is misleading to some degree!

Hmmmmmmmmm, it's in a man's nature to cheat, we have set so much standards and principles which constrains human's nature.so humans are trying to keep up with such standards,if you take a look at biblical history so many of them had more than one woman. Having said that, it is for peace sake that we strive to attain such standards.and Jesus encourages us as well to such standards.so whether you like do monkey style in bed, use the best ingredients to cook, it only takes the grace of God for a man to be faithful.

All of you commenting above are ignorant....so he should have told her not to forgive her husband and divorce him abi? He was just telling her to reconnect with their first love and move on.

Majority of Naija men cheat... yes I remember my dad telling my mum one night afta a little quarrel.. I provide everything you n the kids need you lack nothing why r u fighting? my mum responded because I do not want to be replaced in this house... I'm not a house wife I work too and advice you on sensitive issues you got to respect that and stop what you are doing to me its not fair... I'm saying this because the fact that a man provides for his family doesn't give him the right to cheat. My mum is hard working, loving and beautiful and she's got her own money, she cooks very well, well culture Nigerian woman, she once threatened with a divorce my dad shouted WOMAN with his Nigerian accent that word is not allowed in this house it is forbidden. since that day omo my pele don change ooo infact errrh me self dey surprise.

I agree with him to an extent . Firstly men a polygamous by nature it's just the way they are made with their naughty bits hanging out there. A man who picks a woman and decides to make her his wife is proclaiming to the world he has chosen this one amongst the many. Again if a man provides for his family well, food , shelter, clothing, loving to wife and family dat man is a complete package . If he cheats now and then so what as long as he is safe. Sex is sex. Now a man that his wife is feeding and clothing and sheltering has no right to play away . He is just a great big liability . I understand all this female liberty campaigners but the fact of the matter is that women have their jobs cut out for them hence a uterus she does not Need to provide. A man does nt have a uterus. He has been blessed with strength to provide which he Must do. So it is up to women to choose their Men well. Don't marry a liability out of desperation. He will break your heart, leave you broke over used and old before your years and bring HIV into the matter. O

i believe what he says, as long as you keep giving him all he will want to go outside to look for he'll never cheat and some men are just naturally faithful and committed no matter what but are most unlucky with the type of women they get.

Someone made comment on this recently & I instantly unfollowed her. How dare they say its a woman's fault that a man refuses to be disciplined. We're human beings & not animals. God gave us free will & we can make good or bad choices. Don't blame your bad choices on your wives!

Well, I kinda understand what he is trying to say.

For women who want their marriage to last or who wish to keep her family together should listen to his advice.

For women who want to feel they are right 'as always' or want to prove they are superior or whatever should disregard his advice, so that people like Linda Ikeji and Opera Winfrey will clap for you.

P.S. Its wrong to cheat, but most times its caused by the women. Men cheating is always different from women cheating, because there is no emotional attachment by the man.

All of u ignoramus are answering dumbly like u did not go 2 school. No wonder it is said that if u want to hide sometin 4rm a black man hide it in a book. If I get married n I find out my husband is cheating isn't it better 2 see the positive side of my marriage ratheer than divorcing. Another tactic 2 apply is speaking 2 ur marriage. Every morning wake up n say "my husband is not a cheat in Jesus name. My marriage is working out great in jesus name." N have faith it will work out. Some women r so negative that's y cheating crashes their marriage. They will nag n pursue the man 4rm the house more. Make the home more inviting 4 him 2 look 4ward 2 coming back home immediately after work. Not a war zone. I've learned a lot of lesson that if I knew b4 things would have been done right. Positive attitude attracts positive outcomes. Have faith in God concerning ur marriage..

I think most of you here are just misquoting and blaspheming this man which is wrong.. in essence what this man of God is saying is dat in a marriage of two..both parties should learn to be responsible, stop seeing faults, but instead do all possible to make sure he marriage works.. and he specifically mentioned the woman in the home because, women are naturally emotional beings ... and sometimes may want to use their emotional contingencies to deal with vital issues in the home... just make your marriage work not war.. after all before you got married you had he opportunity to refuse the marriage when it was still courtship.. but problem is that most ladies are just to emotional sometimes to see beyond the big picture.. just as you all here are just talking emotionally and being cynical and sentimental not settling down to be intellectual and cognitive in your reasoning before you just utter words... your words tell your personalities already.....

"All men have a "tendency" to cheat and it's a wife’s duty is to keep her man faithful, by "focusing" on the "positive" and making sure the home is so "enticing" he doesn’t want to stray" I don't need to go further but i think anyone with a high school certificate can understand this without further questions. after all no one is perfect and it is the job of the wife to keep his husband as mine has been doing.

All this men cheat crap is getting old. Women cheat even more and in a society like the US, they can cheat on you and still get half your stuff if not all with child support to boot. So I can understand his answer to the woman being so politically incorrect - because women do worse in America and get paid for it.

Yes, all men have the tendency to cheat, visually or physically, but a woman can make it so difficult for him by making the house a home, the right attitude, moral and spiritual support creates the positive ambience at home that serves as checks on his negative tendencies when he is out there on his own.

It Simply means Women should make extra effort in Keeping their men. Please Be Wise, Do not comment like a Castrated Pig.

Like what the man said or not. he is very right to an extent. Men are polygamous in nature except for some selected few. And that few are just maid not to fancy ladies. Some men knows how to play the game to the extent that, even if the wife was told about how his hubby use to sleep around, she will never belif. The wife can do a lot to reduce the rate at which her husband do cheat on her but its hard to be fully eradicated. Many of us do see all this married men in our place of work and the way at which they wish to be sleeping around with their co-workers, even those female ones that are married and u keep asking urself that, is this man not married or can't he control himself but the truth is that, if he can stop it, he would have done so long time ago. If u have a husband or fiance or boyfriend that don't cheat or that or ladies don't interest them at all, then thank ur God or keep deceiving urself. A lot of people think that it is only Muslim that marry more than one wife but sit down their ooooooo.

No matter how enticing a woman makes her home, a man that wants to cheat will still cheat. A dog is always a dog. It only takes the grace of God. When you marry a man that is meant for u, he can never cheat on u. Infact he'll find it hard to cheat.

Linda all the pastor said was in response to the caller saying that she was finding it difficult to forgive her husband who cheated on her. He was basically telling her to refocus on the things that she liked about the guy or the good aspects of her husband to help her overcome the negative aspect of cheating.

Don't make it out like the man was supporting cheating or saying its ok for a man to cheat just because he is a man. Cheating might be more with men...but women also cheat in relationships

The wanna needed help about how to forgive her cheating husband and the man simply gave her the advice she needed.

All men av a tendency to cheat linda, d earlier we all accept dat d better. A man wo dsnt cheat on d wyf is either truly God fearin or very pricipled and disciplined. Gbam

People are missing his points....He didn't say Men are cheats but have the tendency to cheat which is very true. Cheating is first convinced when the man's weakness is constantly been lashed at his face by the wife. The key focus should be what he does best for the family not his flaws. There are no better men only God is.

Thank u. I was beginning to think no one understood English here. Even if we want to go religious, let's start from genesis, these men could barely stick to one woman but that doesn't mean they r right. And yes! Its possible for a woman to be so virtuous that she'l cause a change in her man's life.

MIMI is the only one who understand what Pat Robertson said in that conversation.what he means, is every man have the nature to cheat, not to say that all men will cheat.Secondly if a man do cheat ,that does not give the woman the permission to break the marriage, she must stay with the man for better or for worse, it has to be sort out.

Mimi, why should a woman remain in a marriage when a man cheats? What happens if it is the woman who cheats? In my opinion so many women are better off single than being married to he-goats. If a man cheats, then that should signify the end of that marriage or at least hand the woman a ticket to do same if she so wishes. Its no longer a mans world in the real world

And why should a woman device a way of keeping the man. Who is this man n wats so special abt him. What efforts do these men put into keeping their women.if a man cheats, a woman should end it n move on. There is so much to enjoy in life without a cheating husband to spoil the fun

First of all i do not see why i should go out of my way ' to make a man happy at home so he doesnt cheat on me'. How does he make me happy? In my world he is 50-50, i understand where some of these dull comments are coming from, naija mentality. If a man cheats, end it. Life is just too beautiful n there is so much to b enjoyed. Life is not do or die n thats why women shld strive to be something in life rather than being doormats to some silly guy who thinks he is all that, n who shld actually be glad the lady got married to him in the first place

oh plssssss....... men who read this don't lie yes he says tendencies but its almost like giving u a get out of jail card to exploring that tendency to cheat (and that exactly is what happens in our society today)..... why do men cheat? why? ur wife is boring? u want something younger and firmer? Just a change? she isnt fun in bed anymore? I can guarantee you it is just the same with women (reasons he is old, small dick, want a change, someone who makes me want to be WILD in the sack) but women tend to be more invested in their families ( and that should be te moral taught not giving excuses for what shows nothing but poor character)...... The lesson from this man should not be the acceptance of a bloody tendency but how men should take a leaf from their wives and be more invested in the families they have and be weary of tendencies as they can lead to what is actually a sin and problems that even more annoyingly end up affecting the wife and children! Selfish......

And these fools who are on here saying women should take advice from this man and condone what is poor judgement and lack of character I will tell u this....... men will always cheat well know this as u are fucking someone out there someone is also fucking ur wife in ur absence..... the only thing is women are better at hiding this! HA!

Generally everybody belief that all men cheat and that's one of the problem most people encounter in marriage,that Obi cheats doesn't mean that frank cheat,although most men cheat but there are still the good ones around.most times what affects us is our past life cos after going out with sugar daddy when single,u don't expect to have a faithful husband when you are married,a young girl of 18 will be saying with sure that all married men cheat.what do u expect her to see when she finally got married.most times its our tongue and negative thinking that is our problem.thank God that am not among those that says all men cheat and it have being a blessing to my marriage.we have being married for almost 10yrs now and we both have being faithful to each other with the help of God

i pray God gives the pple cursing this man of God understanding.What he said is straight forward.Besides,a wise woman builds her home.who are we to judge men that cheat?Play ur role as a good wife n let God be the judge.

With this mentality, you'll certainly be looking for a man to marry at 50.

I'm just laughing at all the women who won't just accept the truth. Acting all bitter. If you like, don't marry. When it eventually hits you that you need a man in your life no matter what, you would have clocked 40 or 50 years. By then, you are rushing up and down looking for man to marry or settle as a sugar mummy.

Bia Linda where is my comment? The problem with the statement does not lie in the content of the statement but the person that made d statement. If this were coming from some average Joe okay no wahala, but from a supposed minister of God ah, na there d problem dey. It appears he is justifying and condoning adultery. "He cheated on you, well he is a man". Really? Hmmmm oga Pat Weldone it is well with you. The God that explicitly stated thou shalt not commit adultery clearly must not know what He is about. Abi? All u people going with d flow of adultery take it easy. It is not normal and was never part of God's plan for marriage. And no person whether male or female has to put up with adultery, except by choice. It is d one reason God will allow a divorce, no questions asked. Don't let d devil deceive u. You will pay d ultimate price for adultery! No excuses. Remember there is an end to this life and we must all account for it.

In my opinion and everyone is entitled to theirs some men will cheat. Those men that cheat will do so no matter the beautiful, best cook respectful , great in bed wife he marries. It's annoying blaming all women for genetically programmed cheating husbands.

some stupid people on this blog just use this as an avenue to insult anyone as they please.Those that insult this man either do not understand english or are incredibly foolish! ok , your husband cheated on you and has apologised. how exactly does it help matters by always throwing it in his face that he cheated. It will only drive him away. instead you should make it such that your hubby always rushes back home to you. its a wise woman that builds her home. a foolish one destroys it.
those of you who accuse the man, is it better to not forgive your man and then have a divorce and then find another man who may still cheat on u?
Gosh people!think before you write!

Must poor men does not always cheat like d rich. Meaning they can cheat when d oppurtunity arises. If u dönt cheat as a man check if u hv more than enough moni, if ur wife is nt doing her duties and lastly what kind of environment u stay plus d friends u keep.

elusive kate said...

That man(pat) is irreponsible! Blaming women for a man's lack of self discipline. The reality is that men dont like controlling their sexual urges. They, like this their shameless mentor(pat), hide under the cloak of all men to cheat to commit all manner of crimes. Do y'all think u are d only ones battling temptataions everyday? Women do but we have d good sense to put our family before our sexual urges unlike most men who relish in thinking with their nether regions. If u men like, dont control urself. Keep excusing ur faults. Until u get into trouble for sexual harrassment, abuse, rape or incest. Coz that is where all these sexual sins eventually leads when there is no control. Nuff said!

Tammyjosh said...

Linda some of these readers just act like they are super humans we are all imperfect people, some said they've married their wives for seven years without straying,and you really want to tell me you have never said in your mind "I love my wife and kids and she does not deserve such disrespect"? why would one think this way because at one point you were vulnerable, it's this vulnerability in every human that is the "tendency" having a tendency to cheat does not make you one. The Man of God only advised she lives above the hate and pain especially when He is the Loving Husband. Readers don't rush into conclusions because even your pastor has his own weakness and so do you, that you have not cheated Does not mean you can't. "Every one has got a price it just takes a good negotiator to find your weakness and you gone".

It is sad to realize that understanding simple english is still a big problem in Nigeria. The key phrase here is "tendency to cheat". Anyone who denies this in the context used is delusional. Do we know the number of people that get to find out that they have a step brother or sister after their fathers have died?
I'm one. Even though i'm a guy and i hate to admit this short coming, its reality. I don't know the above televangelist but he is spot on. A woman has a vital role to play and that's to domesticate her man and make him feel with her is the only place. Anything short of that, a man can and will probably cheat. Period!

Anonymous said...

@ Mr Fellow Man,you obviously have Self Esteem Issues,that is why you are talking about the wife feeling superior and feeling right always.What has that got to do with the issue on ground?

Is it by Cheating in your marriage that you can proof your manhood?

Anyone that wants to cheat can continue and be making excuses for it,but be rest assured that Karma is a Bitch you can"t escape and when she is ready,she will wack you senseless with her long koboko.

No one can excuse Infidelity by saying some women cause it.Take responsibility for your Indiscipline and lack of self control.If you have any issue with your wife and you genuinely love her like God professes ,you will work with her on the relationship ,demonstrate love and affection, till you achieve your desired Plateau.

And who says it is only women that have roles to play.Are you playing your own roles thoroughly in your marriage?If only some men can dedicate half the time and attention they dedicate to those dirty whores they cheat with,they will bring out the best in their patners.

No one can eat his cake and have it.People continue to blatantly cheat on their patners and still expect the best from them.Even if they pretend they do not know,they do and naturally,it gets at them occassionally,if not always.No one enters marriage with the believe that the Patner is ever going to be a serial Cheat.

Whatever little thing you do,ask yourself a simple question:If it were to be my patner doing this to me,how will i feel?
To every one,let your conscience judge you.

Yes,Linda and Oprah will continue to clap for women who are Self Confident and can stand firmly on their feet,trying their best to hold their own and maintain their sanity in this crazy world of ours.
