Two years ago, a woman from the United States travelled to Ghana to marry the pastor that she’d been having prayer conferences with on the phone.
After their marriage ceremony, she financed the pastor’s travel expenses so that she would return to the states with him. A few months later, they had settled in New Orleans enjoying the American weather and a blissful marriage.
She got him a lucrative job, opened a joint account and entrusted everything in his care, including her Mercesdez truck. After a year or two, the woman took a vacation to Jamaica, but prior to her Jamaican vacation, her husband told her, he will be seeing a family member in Canada while she is away.
The woman returned from Jamaica, only to find an empty house and a note from her husband that said “I am sorry but I am back with Jenessa, my girl friend from high school, we rekindled our love and I’ve travelled to Netherlands to see her and I will not be coming back, God bless you for your help”.
He had cleaned out every cent in their joint account, took her two labtops, ipod touch and his documents. The heartless Pastor had lived with this woman for two years, extended his phony love, which were all lies and deceit.
In another strange encounter, a woman had three boys within her 8year marriage. After the 9th year, she revealed to her husband that the 2nd child was not his but Tom’s, the husband’s best friend in college and now co-worker.
The second child being the smartest and intelligent among the three, so the husband grew fond of him. This woman had spun her husband a lie for almost a decade.
To make reference to what Jay Z said, “men lie, women lie, numbers don’t lie”. These two non-fictional stories are evidence of this. Men and women lie all the time, however, in certain situations, the percentage at which one particular sex lies will be higher than the other.
Men for instance, lie anytime they are caught pants down. When a man wants a woman for the first time, every word he utters are mostly all lies, in order to con his way into her life. He spends half the night with his girlfriend but lies to his wife, children and his friends.
Many relationships are in jeopardy because of lies. Women stealing from husbands and pretending not to have seen what she had stolen a minute ago when asked. Giving another man a paternity right, when the biological father is refused because, he is poor.
Women lie with the excuse of sparing others feelings and also to feel good about themselves. When women lie, they term it as a “white lie”, but obviously, a lie is lie, irrespective of how it is termed. If it is red and you say it’s green, it’s a lie, and should be called a liar.
Apparently, Jay Z’s philosophy of men lie, women lie but numbers don’t lie is true, but who most often lie in relationships is what we are about to establish.
Who is always caught in the lying web? Is it men or women? Is it due to the fact that, one sex knows how to weave the lying web than the other or that a particular sex just lies to exonerate him or herself from escalating troubles.
