Billboard of Shame

If you happened to have missed the headlines last week, Atlanta was one of the cities included in the “vengeance by billboard” by YaVaugnie Wilkins.

There is certainly a lot that is not being told about the couple’s history. Mr. Phillips made his public statement about an 8-year relationship with Ms. Wilkins. I think what struck me the most was how a relationship ends up like this after such a long time.

The whole saga seems deeper than “hell hath no fury”. Maybe it is a cautionary tale about how well we know the people we are dating or committed to. Do you think a person can conceal an entire marriage without showing any signs?

What happens when someone is not the person they portray themselves to be? If you found out that you had been dating a married person, how would you react?

What is it about love gone wrong that makes us want to exact revenge, anyway? Have you ever gone out of your way to humiliate or embarrass someone who betrayed you? Did it make you feel better?

Do you think we have a sense of entitlement when it comes to breakups? Are we owed some type of retribution for being hurt?

I unfortunately know that now and will make someone a wonderful Husband one day.

One more….you’re already somebody’s husband. See, while you’re dogging the billboard chick, you’re an adulterer yourself. Yeah, it’s in there. Watch that strong word of hate you used. You’re committing the same sin

@Leggs

LOL I feel you. He is scandelous. I never really had someone try to pit me against another guy, but I was friends with this girl who had a bf. Everything was cool, then 1 day I ask like, your bf is cool that we are friends right? She goes of course. Then a week later, she turns her phone off, then text me like its a long story, but I cant talk to you anymore. Im like why? She goes, because my bf thinks Im cheating on him with you. Im like really? The truth is she probably just threw me out there during an argument to try to make him jealous.

This is why women and men really cant be friends if someone is in a relationship.

Mdot, I think you are at fault when you knowingly get into it. However not so much if you are not aware. The one that took the vows should be true to those vows and not have the responsibility of them being made to put on the person that is outside of that marriage.

If my husband cheats on me he is the wrong doer that I will fault. Yeah if that woman knows he is married she is wrong but only before God. But I did not make my vows with her I made them with him. He wronged me and our marriage. He is accountable to God and me. She is accountable to God.

People like to blame other folks for wrecking their marriage, but it’s that spouse that stepped out that wrecked the marriage. If it’s not that woman/man it will be another. So don’t hate the person that they cheated with, hate your spouse and yourself for being with such a person.

That’s what I was saying. If he deceives her and does not tell her that he is married, she didnt know and cant be at fault because he deceived her.

All acts start in the heart and mind before ever materilized on paper sheets. So if we all had the responsibility of making our fellow man do the right thing, that person is still who they are for even asking. If 100 women turns him down, he still has a cheating heart because he is on the hunt. He is the problem, not the outsider.

And that’s all I have to say about that.

Now if he kept it real and said I have a wife and Im not leaving, but if you are cool, then we can still roll, and she is down, then she has to be held accountable also.

True Mdot, she is held accountable but she did not make you cheat. That was your decision. So even without her you are still a cheater if that is what’s in your heart and mind to do.

Melo – My SO does love football too. He hates the Saints as well, but he really does not care who wins because he loves the Falcons.

When the Saints won, though, the diplomat in him came out. He started with the “Well, they’ve never been before” routine.

I, on the other hand, am heartless. For example, I am a Ga Bulldog thru & thru. If Ga Tech was playing the national championship, I still would not root for them, even though it would be a win for the state. That’s how much I hate them. I don’t have quite that same hate for the Saints(I think I hate Dallas more), but it’s pretty close.

2nd the same God that forgives that harlot that sleeps with someone’s husband or does the 50 cent…have a baby by me and be a “baby momma” is the same God that will forgive me on judging if your perception is correct.

Shoot the blog is fair game. The same folks that screw anything that moves or moves in and screw anything, so it is only natural that comments/questions are made and asked.

I had a long post on polygamy, homewreckers – the whole nine but then I looked at the time.

My summary – both are guilty when adultery occurs, however if the wife wants to ‘hate’ someone, it should be the husband. He’s the one that made a vow, supposedly loves her and then turns around and messes with another woman.

however, women find it easier to blame the other woman because it hurts too much to know that your husband chose someone else. That other woman must have put some roots on her husband or something…

Polygamy – you can have as many women as the law and your pocket allows. If you lay with a woman, you should be taking care of her – and THAT is where God had a problem in the bible. David wasn’t punished for having many wives, he was punished for taking another laying with another man’s wife.

I hate to say this, but sometimes men cheat just to bust a nut and that’s all. Yes, they shouldn’t marry and disrespect their wives. Somehow, there’s a mental defect that they think it’s ok to do and say in the same breath they love their wives!
