Affairs are expensive

Nairobi - During the whole duration, you have to keep up. Which is my main point.
Money and time obviously play a role; but I am more so thinking about the stress and mental pressure.
I am so lazy, I just have to break up with you if I think I want to be with another person. It is just that simple and it is better in the end when you do not hurt the other person.
When you receive a call, you have to hide.
If they ask you where you went; you have to lie.
When you are about to plan a getaway, you can’t even enjoy it because you are on the lookout for friends that might say the wrong thing and the right time- when you spouse is there that is. You have to be on the lookout of your spouse’s close friends so that they do not carry word back and most importantly, you are just watching out for your spouse as well.
You can’t even enjoy simple food or a simple swim- just in case you are seen somewhere you should not be with someone whom you are not meant to be with.
Still think it is a good idea?
If you are in a relationship and you want to cheat; just let your current partner go. It might be a mistake on your part in the end but that is the price you have to pay. Worst case scenario is you have an affair here and carry something back with you and give it to someone completely innocent and now you have that baggage as well. Or they just find out and you still lose them because cheating always comes out. You might think you are smart but we all slip up.
A person will respect you more if you let them go rather than keep them around making them look like fools. They would even be more open to a reconciliation rather than going through the humiliation of being made to feel less of yourself.
