I’ve asked the women on my Jamaican side of the family if they believe it’s true that women just accept that their men are going to cheat.They assured me that it’s not something Jamaican women accept; but they can’t stop a man from doing what he’s going to do, if he’s going to do it.They can only decide what they’re going to do in response to his infidelity.How a man treats a woman has very little to do with his country of origin and more about how he was taught to treat women by the men and even women who raised him.
