Fidelity in a Relationship

‘Did You Know’ that there is behavior that may direct an individual away from fidelity in a relationship?

Behaviors that may lead one away from their spouse (or significant other) and towards another person include the following…

  • Sharing private matters with friends before discussing them with your spouse.
  • Spending inordinate amounts of time with one member of the opposite sex.
  • Finding more delight in being with some other person other than with your spouse.
  • Thinking that a particular friend understands you better than your spouse; therefore, you want to talk with that person, yet cannot communicate as well at home.
  • Exhibiting an unwillingness to hear the warnings of others.
  • Feeling youthful or high around one particular person who is not your spouse.
  • Having romantic feelings that are transferred to your spouse from someone else.
  • Behaving with aggressive defensiveness towards your spouse or others.
  • Setting up opportunities with someone other than your spouse or finding yourself in seemingly coincidental situations with someone other than your spouse.
  • Not paying attention to warnings or sound advice from friends; alienating yourself from longtime friends; finding other people who will agree with your clandestine activities.
