Infidelity is a violation of a couple’s assumed or stated contract regarding emotional and/or sexual exclusivity. Other scholars define infidelity as a violation according to the subjective feeling that one’s partner has violated a set of rules or relationship norms; this violation results in feelings of sexual jealousy and rivalry.
What constitutes an act of infidelity depends upon the exclusivity expectations within the relationship. In marital relationships, exclusivity expectations are commonly assumed although they are not always met. When they are not met, research has found that psychological damage can occur, including feelings of rage and betrayal, lowering of sexual and personal confidence, and damage to self-image. Depending on the context, men and women can experience social consequences if their act of infidelity becomes public. The form and extent of these consequences are often dependent on the gender of the unfaithful person.
Recently, a video of a battered husband has been doing rounds on social media, garnering mixed reactions from netizens.
Facebook user Jayson Dimaano uploaded a video featuring his injuries attained after being beaten by his own wife. In the caption, he wrote: “Ganyan ka lupit asawa ku, kulang na lang patayin aku”.
During the minute-and-a-half video, Jayson’s poor face was seen full of injuries while his body is full of bruises and wounds.
The lady who is taking the video who is probably his wife was heard saying, “Pag nakita yan ng kabit mo iiyak yun sa awa, sa awa sayo. Kan— niyo kapalit kabugbugan mo.”
“Makita yan sa Facebook ng kabit mo,” she added
Although it is not clear what really happened to the couple, some of Jayson’s follower assumed that he indeed cheated. Some of them sympathized with his condition while others claimed that he only deserve it as a punishment for cheating.
