#7 Keep the spark alive. Monotony is one of the many things to blame for a person’s infidelity. That’s why it’s crucial for couples to always find time for each other, no matter how busy they may be. Take a long, hard look at your relationship, and try to find which aspects of it could use a little pick-me-up.
Have you been spending less time together? Set up a weekly date night routine to catch up. Is the sex getting boring? Amp up with kink by trying to indulge in each other’s fantasies. Running out of things to talk about? Try out new activities together. There are literally thousands of ways you can keep the spark alive in a relationship!
#8 Be independent. Just because you fell in love with someone, and want to be with them all the time, does not mean you should forget about yourself and the things you enjoy doing. It’s healthy to spend time apart, and you two don’t always have to be into the same things.
No one likes a needy boyfriend or girlfriend. You need to give each other room to breathe and grow outside of the relationship. Keeping your partner in your sights 24/7 will only serve to make them feel smothered, and they’ll be struggling to find a way out… And that usually ends up being in the arms of another.
There’s no 100% guarantee that these tips will prevent your partner from cheating. After all, if it’s in their nature to cheat, they’ll do it no matter what. But what these tips can do is help you lessen the possibility of getting your heart broken by a cheating partner again. That’ll definitely up the odds a bit, and in a science as unstable as relationships, that’s as good as it gets.
