Durex, a condom manufacturing company in the United Kingdom, conducted a survey to ascertain the level of unfaithfulness amongst women in different countries.

Speaking with 29,000 women in 36 countries, the result revealed Nigeria as topping the chart.

Durex survey taken across Asia and Africa revealed that Thailand men are the most unfaithful in the world, with 54 percent of them admitting to cheating on their spouses. South Korea came second with 34 percent, while Malaysia ranked number three with 33 percent. Nothing was said of American women or women in Europe.

The survey revealed that the top two countries with cheating women are Nigeria, with 62 percent, and Thailand, 59 percent. 39 percent of Malaysian women also confessed to having betrayed their partners. Russian women came fourth at 33 percent while Singaporeans are fifth at 19 percent.

Another independent survey also conducted in Africa affirmed the fact that Nigeria, with a population of over 160 million tops the chart for cheating women.

ENCOMIUM Weekly sampled opinion of Nigerians about this assertion…

 

‘More Nigerian women are faithful’ -MARIA JAMES

Do you think Nigeria women are the most unfaithful in the world?

No, I cannot believe that.

Why did you say so?

More Nigerian women are faithful to their marriages than other nations. Ours can be attributed to factors like religion, which has become the standard for most of us, and then tradition. Despite our exposure and enlightenment, a typical Nigerian woman still holds firm to the dictates of tradition, either of her background or that of her husband’s.

And the ego of our men will not allow their wives do such. A man can kill any woman suspected of infidelity. We have heard cases of women losing their lives in marriages, some are as a result of infidelity.

 

‘That survey cannot be correct’  -ABIODUN OLAYEMI

Do you think Nigeria women are the most unfaithful in the world?

No, I don’t think so. I can never believe that. It is not possible.

Why did you say so?

That survey cannot be correct. What is the yardstick they used in conducting their poll? How many women did they talk to and what scientific methods did they use to arrive at such a ridiculous conclusion? I will not say Nigerian women are completely innocent, but they are not the most notorious in that regard. I have friends from other countries who are married, and at the same time keep multiple lovers, and I, happily married to my husband for 10 years now, have never strayed. I have never cheated on my husband and I don’t intend to.

 

‘Nigerian women are so religious’ –ADEOLA ADEDAYO

Do you think Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

No, I don’t believe it. What about South African women. I think they are the most unfaithful.

Why?

Our women have not been unfaithful to their husbands. In the diaspora, you can’t tell your wife to keep away from certain associations, she will shout at you, and tell you to mind your business that she is an adult, and knows how to take care of herself- including knowing when to say no to overtures. But Nigerian women are decent. No matter where we find ourselves, we uphold our cultural values. Some do it secretly though but it is uncommon.  Nigerian women are so religious, that has curbed a lot of excesses on their path.

 

‘We are all not perfect’ -ADA CHINYERE

Do you think Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

I think so, though I am not sure.

Why?

Anybody can stray at any time. We are all not perfect. Some ladies who do it before marriage get so used to it that they find it difficult to stop it after marriage. I am not sure of the statistics but I know a lot of Nigerian women who cheat on their husbands.

 

‘I have not cheated on my husband for once’ -FELICIA GEORGE

Do you think Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

No, that is not right. If you say men, I can agree with you.

Why?

I have been married for 20 years and I have not cheated on my husband for once. In every way, I have been very faithful despite my husband’s un faithfulness. I know he has a girl friend out there. I am okay once he takes care of his responsibilities and comes home. The stupid girl is the loser. I used to warn him to use condom, that is all. I can’t kill myself because of a man. People have abused me severally but I have made up my mind to be happy with my life.

 

‘Nigerian women are more sexually decent’ -KAREEM MARIAM

Do you think Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

I don’t think so.

Why?

Nigerian women are more sexually decent than women in other places of the world. In Nigeria, family values are cherished and women who cheat do so mostly in secret. My religion does not permit it. A man can do it and get away with it but not a woman. Muslim women are decent and I am proud of that.

 

‘No Nigerian woman will be applauded for cheating’ -BUKOLA ADEJUWON

Do you think Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

No, I cannot agree to that.

Why?

Nigerian women are generally family-centred and conscious of societal approval. Only a few would risk rubbishing the integrity of their families, especially that of their children, for a moment of pleasure. Our society is yet to liberate women to the level of equal rights with men. No Nigerian woman will be applauded for cheating on her husband. The stigma it attracts is great. Besides, what a man can do and get away with in Nigeria, a woman cannot try it and get away and this includes being unfaithful in marriage.

 

‘Ladies are more unfaithful’ -ADEOLA RUFIA

Do you think Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

If you say the single ladies, I will say yes, because there are a lot of them who don’t stick to one boy friend.

Why?

Like I said, I will agree that ladies are more unfaithful but once a woman is married, she has gotten to her bus stop. What else does she want. Can’t you see that we have more women in church than men. They are very religious, they uphold societal values. The shame and disgrace such will bring to them will make them shy away from doing such. Fine, we have heard cases of a woman saying all the children she had does not belong to her husband but it is one to 10. Unless some of them are doing it secretly. Even at that. I don’t think it is to the extent that they will be termed the most unfaithful in the world.

 

‘Women strive to keep their homes despite all odds’ -OMOTOLA OYETORO

Do you think Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

No, that cannot be true.

Why?

A lot of men come back to Nigeria to choose a wife. In fact, most of them do, they insist Nigeria women are better. Some of them still have Nigerians as wives after marrying a white woman over there. I am not saying some women are not faithful but the percentage cannot be that outrageous. Women strive to keep their homes despite all odds. They are mostly the breadwinner, they know their husbands are not faithful, yet they stay in the union.

 

‘I don’t agree with that’ -ANTHONIA UGWU

Do you think Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

No, I don’t agree with that.

Why?

The culture, tradition and values Nigerians uphold do not permit that. Some might do it before they get married, once they are married, they stop it. It is only the possessed ones that can continue to engage in adultery after marriage. Most married women want to stay in their marriage, uphold the dignity of that union as well.

 

‘Not all Nigerian women are faithful’ -AISHA AJALA

Is it true that Nigeria women are the most unfaithful in the world?

I wouldn’t say Nigeria women are the most unfaithful but I will say not all Nigerian women are faithful in marriage.

Why did you say so?

Some are there for material things. Some want a comfort zone, some to bear the surname and be called “Mrs” while some are in for love. Those who are interested in the material things are not getting so much from the marriage. They don’t get sex, money, comfort. So, they look for it outside. Some women just crave for sexual satisfaction, if it is not available at home, they look for it elsewhere.

 

‘A lot of women put their hands in dirty things’ -LARA OLUTONA

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

To begin with, Nigeria has the highest population in Africa so, comparing them in a research of such is not portraying a good level playing ground. Besides, generalising in a research is not a welcome idea, but that is not a reason to utterly discard such results.

Why did you say so?

Looking at the survival strategies of most Nigerian women. It may be right to say that the research may be true. A lot of women put their hands in dirty things just to belong.

 

‘I don’t have unfaithful women around me’ -ABIOLA AROKOYO

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

I think most Nigerian ladies are virtuous women.

Why did you say so?

I don’t have unfaithful women around me. I know a lot of women who are dying just to keep their homes despite the men’s unfaithfulness and irresponsible acts. I would even say that, it is men who are unfaithful in marriage. A lot of them cheat on their wives and they don’t expect the wife to do the same.

 

‘Nigerian women cheat’ -BUKOLA AKINLOYE

Is it true that Nigeria women are the most unfaithful in the world?

Based on instances, I think Nigerian women cheat just like in any part of the world.

Why do you say so?

Whether the woman involved is treated like a queen or not by her husband, all depends on principles.

As a matter of principles and upbringing, I will rather divorce my spouse and know I am single before seeing another man. I can’t do it while I am under his roof.

 

‘Most Nigeria women are faithful’ -AKINYELE MUTIAT

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

Most Nigeria women are faithful, always trying to keep their home despite knowing the husband’s infidelity.

Why do you say so?

Nigerian women are submissive and respectful despite all odds from the men. Most women are decent. Once they are married, they stick to their marriage because of integrity, their children and societal values.

 

‘It can’t be true’ -AMAKA SIMON

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

I am shocked. It can’t be true, on what basis. Nigerian women from what I have seen are the most enduring and faithful in marriage.

Why do you say so?

Most of them go through physical and verbal abuse yet they stay by their men and never look out. They believe that once they are married, they are married.

 

‘Few Nigerian women cheat’ -ABOLADE AFOLABI

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

No! Nigerian men are the most unfaithful in the world.

Why did you say so?

Reason being that it is believed that it is a man’s world. Because of that saying, they tend to cheat. A Nigerian man can decide to have an affair without remorse. But few Nigerian women cheat though. But one can’t compare the ratio of men who cheat to that of women.

 

‘Nigerian women are faithful’  -IFE ADEDAYO

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

Truth be told, Nigerian women strive to be faithful to their spouses so I think it would be unfair to say that they are unfaithful or the most unfaithful in the world.

Why do you say so?

From my findings, Nigerian women are faithful to their marital vows, even when infidelity holds sway in their marriages. Only a minute fraction may decide to pay their spouses in their own coin. A huge number of women are still very faithful, and that is a fact. I have a lot of faithful friends around me and also believe that should be the position of other women in the marriage institution.

 

‘The younger generation of married women are unfaithful’ -BIDEMI OYAWOLE

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

I don’t think so, I will say the younger generation of married women are unfaithful.

Why do you think so?

I think the older you are, the more responsible you become. Those who are newly married are still vibrant and want to catch fun. Some do it for the love of materialism, some because they want to belong to the click. A friend of mine told me her class mate in school is always out shining her, so she decided to show her as well. You can imagine what such a woman will do if she has the opportunity to cheat on her husband.  She really wants to belong.

 

‘The unmarried are more unfaithful’ -BARBARA ONOCHE

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

They are not.

Why do you say so?

The younger generation, most especially those who are unmarried, are more unfaithful. Those in their 20s and early 30s are most guilty. They are the most promiscuous. Once you are married Africa’s belief and virtues do not permit married women to do such.

 

‘There are more randy women in other parts of the world’  -AYO AYINDE

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

No, I don’t think so.

Why do you think so?

There are more randy women in other parts of the world. In South Africa, Kenya, the girls are randy. Even our Nigeria men in South Africa can testify to that. I don’t think Nigerian women are promiscuous. I will say that some women in Nigeria are unfaithful, that is why we hear that a man is not the father of his two, three or four children. Nigerians are religious and they care about societal values. They wouldn’t go out their boundary.

 

‘I don’t think so’ -SEYI ALABI

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

I don’t think so.

Why did you say so?

South Africans are very unfaithful, even in Italy, America, they have sex anyhow. Nigerians are value oriented. They wouldn’t want to be caught in what the society frowns at. I think that research is faulty. I have married people around, they are not into such. Some have been going through challenges but they chose to stick to their marriage.

 

‘I don’t believe it’ -BOLA AREMU

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

No, that can’t be true. I don’t believe it.

Why did you say so?

I don’t do it and I have friends that don’t do it as well. I didn’t do it when I was single, why will I venture into it when I am married. Any woman who is unfaithful is opening her door to the devil. Come to think of it. Is it for the fun of it or the material gain. She can get all from her husband. Let him know he is not satisfying you sexually and the two of you will work on it. If it is material, tell him you need more of it so as to avoid temptation. I think, we shouldn’t make life complex by indulging in what we don’t need.

 

‘I know a few who are unfaithful’ -FUNMI OLANIYAN

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

I don’t know about that. All I know is that there are women that are faithful and there are women who are unfaithful.

Why did you say so?

That is how life is. There are two sides to a coin. I can’t just state the ratio. I know a few who are unfaithful and a few who are faithful.

 

‘Married women don’t do it’ -YEMISI OLONADE

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

I don’t think that is possible.

Why do you say so?

Nigeria is blessed with so many virtuous women, even if some are unfaithful, it is just a few. Nigerians value culture, traditions and beliefs. They wouldn’t want to be caught in the web of shame. Most married women don’t do it. There are exceptions though, some are just too perverse that they can throw caution to the wind and go all out.

 

‘Men are more unfaithful than women’  -GINIKA IFEANYI

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

I don’t agree to that. If they say men, I can say yes.

Why do you think so?

Men are more unfaithful than women. A lot of married men are unfaithful to their partners. I will say that more than 60 perent men are not faithful. I know of some men who have children outside their marriage and their wives are not aware.

 

‘A lot of ladies double date’ -ANITA UCHENNA

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

I think so, a lot of ladies are unfaithful.

Why do you say so?

A lot of ladies double date. They have the main guy, the ATM and the extra guy. You need to see them on campus. They want to belong, they want to use the latest phones, so they go out of their way to get money. Some even have sugar daddies.  If you are referring to the married women, I don’t think it is right to say they are the most unfaithful in the world.

 

‘It is untrue’ -BALIKIS OLALEKAN

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

I don’t agree with such. It is untrue.

Why don’t you agree?

Nigerian women are the most religious women in the world. The government has also disapproved gay law. So, how can they say such, I don’t agree.

 

‘I think most Nigerian women are unfaithful’ -TOLULOPE AJAYI

Is it true that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world?

I agree because even if we don’t see them we watch movies and see what’s going on. I think most Nigerian women are unfaithful.

Why do you say so?

Almost all the girls now are prostitutes. They walk about naked and married women have joined them.
