ɪɴғɪᴅᴇʟɪᴛʏ is a huge concern in relationships because it breeds dishonesty, so it’s natural to want to know how to keep a man faithful.
Whether you’ve been ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛᴇᴅ on before or just generally want to know how to stop your boyfriend or husband from ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛɪɴɢ in a relationship, it’s important to first understand why men ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛ on women they love.
Most men don’t ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛ because they’re not in love with their wife or girlfriend anymore. Rather, otherwise happily married men say they ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛ because they want more variety in their lives or they feel something is missing in an area they believe the woman in their life simply can’t fill.
Some men complain of being bored. Or they say want to feel adored by their partners. Or they want to assert their freedom. Or they’re tired of feeling like a disappointment.
People who ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛ may want a partner who places them at the center of their life, and they no longer feel like a top priority in yours.
Sometimes men have ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛɪɴɢ behavior tendencies because they are speaking different love languages. And some men say they’re unfaithful because they’re driven by a biological directive to procreate with as many women as possible in order to ensure the survival of the species.
Whatever their reasons for ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛɪɴɢ may be, men, like women, have an innate need to feel respected and appreciated by their partners.
With that in mind, here are 8 things you can do to keep a man faithful and stop your husband or boyfriend from ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛɪɴɢ again.
1. Be willing to initiate ⓢⓔⓧ.
Men equate ⓢⓔⓧ with desirability. Help your man to feel desired by expressing your love in a physical way.
2. Be open to experimentation.
It can be easy to get comfortable and fear of the unknown can stop you from being open to different ⓢⓔⓧⓤⓐⓛ experiences.
Allow your man to try new things with you. If you won’t, there will be someone else who will. I’m not saying to engage in ⓢⓔⓧⓤⓐⓛ activity you find repulsive but allow yourself to experience new things with the man you love.
3. Don’t become too controlling.
Often without realizing it, when we get into relationships we attempt to control the other person to do what works best for us.
We engage in destructive relationship habits such as complaining, blaming, criticizing, nagging, threatening, punishing and bribing or rewarding to control.
4. Don’t over accommodate.
Sometimes in a relationship, a woman can become too accommodating.
Men get into relationships with a very clear picture of what a lifetime partner looks like and this is often in stark contrast to whom he may have dated casually. Women work to become the person their partner wants them to be and in doing so, they lose themselves. One day, their man realizes this is what he asked for but he isn’t sure it’s what he really wants.
5. Let him have time to himself.
Some men cheat because they begin to feel hemmed-in by the relationship. Engaging in an affair can provide them the sense of freedom they lose in a relationship.
Allow your man time for himself without you. Don’t try to monopolize all your guy’s time. Be open to time apart for him to spend with friends, pursue hobbies, etc. so he does not feel he has no freedom.
6. Make sure he knows how much you appreciate him.
Sometimes when women get the guy and get married, they begin to get a false sense of security. Remember, all relationships are voluntary.
A person can leave at any time. With the divorce rate in this country, we need to remember how important it is to maintain a positive relationship, not simply to acquire one.
7. Be aware of your emotions.
Whether or not we are aware of it, women are masters at using their emotions to communicate volumes without speaking any words. We communicate anger, rage, sadness, and disappointment that is received by our partners.
Instead of taking that as a cue to do something different, some men begin to look for another partner who idolizes them the way you used to. Don’t forget, your man wants to know he lights you up — not that he is constantly disappointing you.
8. Prioritize your relationship.
Often, when a man ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛs, you will find the woman is also having an affair that’s not ⓢⓔⓧⓤⓐⓛ. It’s more socially appropriate.
This affair takes the form of prioritizing something — anything — over the relationship. This could be a job, children, a sick relative, a charity or anything that puts her man lower on her totem pole than the first position.
Prioritize your relationship over everything else. This is the relationship you want to last for all your life. Other things will fade away and the relationship will still be there if you tend to it carefully.
