Her First

Her First - by C-Section Comics

Cheer up Adam, you’re her first –
The first man Eve was ever with.
You’re her best and you’re her worst
(so says the creation myth).

Eve’s your wife, flesh of your flesh,
partner, friend, your children’s mom.
You should trust her, she is great,
so eat the fruit out of her palm.


Here’s another comic featuring Adam and Eve.

Here’s the biblical text of the creation of Eve (Genesis 2):

And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

So I Heard You’re Doing Stuff Behind My Back

Behind my back - by C-Section Comics

When a love story begins, it’s all sunshine and rainbows and unicorns with fluttering butterfly wings. After years of searching you’ve finally found your soul mate. You date a couple of times, there’s a sudden “spark”, and then you fall in love. But it takes weeks, months or even years to develop a meaningful relationship, based on love, acceptance, and most importantly: trust. And then one day that trust is ruined. You find out your spouse is having an affair. The person you trust the most is cheating on you behind your back. They call it a life shattering moment, maybe because it’s the moment you realize your spouse has just shat all over your life.

In a way, finding out you’re a victim of infidelity is like finding out Trump won the presidency: the odds for it happening are more than reasonable, yet you’re amazed to find out that it actually happened. People who found out their spouse had an affair usually go through the five stages of grief – Denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. It’s not surprising, because in a way, adultery often means that the relationship has ended, though many couples may seek to try and rebuild their marriage after an affair.

Personally, I don’t understand how could anyone who has a job find the time to have an affair. Especially married people with kids. Between my job and my kids, I can barely find the time to manage one relationship, let alone two. If there’s one that I gotta hand to adulterers, it’s that they have excellent time management skills, because affairs are so time consuming. They require so much handling – there’s so much logistics, and coordinating, and lies. Maybe that’s why so many managers and politicians have affairs – they’re not hornier than the rest of us, they’re just very good at time management and bullshitting people.

You may wish to go behind my back and check out some more cartoons about having an affair. Here’s a comic about the risks of cheating (NSFW), and here’s infidelity as presented on a Woody Allen movie. And to finish on an optimistic note, here’s a cartoon about how love eventually triumphs.
