Married.. on the “Down Low”

Married.. on the "Down Low"

It amazes me the number of men who are married but on the “Down Low”. No not that DOWN LOW.. the other down low.. These down low men are the men who make every attempt to hide or down play the reality that they are married.

I think there is something wrong with a man who wants to evade or hide the reality of their marital status. You know these guys, they wear no rings, never mention their spouses, hardly are the two in the same room at the same time. I have several single friends who, well act like single guys. They can do that because they’re SINGLE. What confuses me are the married guys who want to run with the single guys (that’s ok within reason) AND ACT and BEHAVE like they too are single.

Marriage these day have a life expectancy of  a snowball living in Miami. It’s like we sprinkle a marriage in between undergrad and our masters, or it’s like a phase of life we want to try out and experiment with. Some single people are seeking someone to marry while most married people are trying to get back to being single.

I believe there are more men who are happy and devoted to their wives. We just don’t say anything. No one talks about us. When the gossip is being spread no one says, “Girl, did you know that Gayle and George are celebrating their 20th anniversary…UmmHUH”. No, but  Henry the cheater gets plenty of talk time..

Faithful men .. we must be more vocal about our commitment to our women and our families. I don’t know about you, but I am a little tired of seeing the bad guys get all the press.
