As a Christian, I used to think that this emanated from the Adam and Eve era and turned into the ‘Eve effect’.
It is told that Eve, a woman that Adam trusted so much gave him the forbidden fruit to eat. This to me (I mean “to me”, before you will charge me for misquoting…) amounted to gross breaking of Adam’s heart!
This was a man who wholeheartedly loved a woman whom he woke (after a very deep sleep) to see and instantly fell head-over-heals in love with her, he started teaching her lots of things about himself and his surroundings.
Adam gave Eve a tour of his ‘kingdom’ but one thing he forgot to teach her was about his God, his best friend, companion and his all and all!
The Bible made us to know that God usually comes down to ‘fellowship’ with Adam; and probably the moment Eve came into the picture/scene, Adam lost his ‘wristwatch’, he never remembered to keep to time for his communion with God.
He was constantly busy, occupied with the beauty, softness and what-not of the new being in his life.
He must have been tied up in finding all possibilities of UNDERSTANDING this creature that God brought to him, that he lost track of his time with God.
Who would blame him, the moment a man sees a beautiful woman who his ‘eyes’ are attracted to, he loses his internal and external senses, or is this still the “Adamic” experience?
Using my human mind and eyes, I am sure the days that God managed to get Adam to sit and fellowship with Him, He must have tried to counsel Adam to take things easy and learn to be kind, be patient and tolerable with Eve, after all, He had already given him charge over all the animals to help him learn how to be organized, listen, understand emotions and moral judgment.
But trust Adam, being the man with BIG ego, would have told God that he is on top of it; he has no problem at all in understanding and handling her, after all it is he – Adam that gave her the name – Wo(mb)man.
It is still he -Adam that seats around all days, listening and admiring all her talks and all the descriptions of his environment.
He (Adam) is on top of his game. He understands Eve more than the Creator – God. He knows her likes and dislikes, he knows what ‘trips’ her, what tickles her fancy!
Is Adam’s Heart Break Enough Reasons?
But is this Adamic heartbreak enough reasons for most men going ‘bananas’? Many have argued that Eve did not even apologize to Adam for ‘cheating’ on him with the serpent!
Now whatever your mind tells you there about the word/phrase ‘cheating’ with the serpent, you have yourself to blame!
Another school of thoughts says that Eve should have apologized to Adam for making him loose a kingdom. Dominion over the Garden of Eden and hopefully the whole World.
Then if Adam lost his World, his direct communion with God, his self-worth, his ‘nakedness’ in the sight of God and man, his inheritance, is that why most men have capitalize on his misfortune to infest heartache on the womenfolk?
The answer to question still remains a mystery:
- Why do most men cheat?
