Coincidence? Nah, I don’t think so.
And as judgmental as people can be about infidelity, it is something everyone can relate to on some level. And if you look at the statistics…42 percent of black women will never be married. According to the author of he novel “Man Sharing,” by J. Darlene Hayes, there are 100 unmarried women to every 88 unmarried men, leaving 12 dangling women. That’s quite a visual! And unless you’re a real optimist, already married or not sweating being single, it’s a quite disturbing stat. She says for years, women have been man-sharing but have been keeping it under wraps.
