Is it just me or does it seem like more and more television shows are
portraying unstable relationships such as the women who
knowingly sleep with married men.
With popular tv shows like Scandal or Being Mary Jane, why is it that
we are making it "okay" to cheat if you are married??
When has adultery ever been acceptable?
There use to be a time when these type of men or women were shunned upon.
Now we're praising them?? what's really going on?
Statistics has proven thar realtionships favor men due to about
41,500,000 of the adult women in the United States are married.
But 21,327,000 others are women without men:
women who have never married (11,822,000); widows (8,047,000) and divorcees (1,458,000).
But does that make it ok to share a man if the wife didn't agree?
Let's use for example the new show from BET, Being Mary Jane.
According to BET.COM,
From the producers of the award-winning, record-breaking
BET comedy The Game and No. 1 box-office romantic comedy
Jumping the Broom comes the all new original series, Being
Mary Jane starring the gorgeous and talented Gabrielle Union.
This is a story to which millions of modern women will both
relate and respond. Mary Jane Paul is a one-woman show: a successful
TV news anchor and an entirely self-sufficient powerhouse who
remains devoted to a family that doesn’t share her motivation.
Intense drama and unforgettable moments unfold as Mary Jane
juggles her life, her relationships, her work and commitments to her family.
Being Mary Jane stars Gabrielle Union, Omari Hardwick and Lisa Vidal. The show creators, Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil now!
This show gives women who are involved in this type of behavior false
hope. Women's Daily magazine even stated that married men are usually
still in love with their wives when they get involved in an affair.
Typically the affair occurs because of the freedom of no responsibility.
Are we trying to say adultery is acceptable? What are we telling are kids about relationships? Marriage?
