Have you ever wondered how your spouse would handle a situation in which they had the opportunity to cheat? Is it possible that fate simply has not provided the right circumstances yet? Can you really label someone a cheater if they only have the potential to cheat, but have not yet done so?
It's been said that everyone has their price; can this also be true when it comes to being unfaithful? Maybe there is one person out of a million that will push your spouse's buttons in such a way that they give in to their urges.
Of course, a lot of this depends on the character of the person in question. If you know your spouse well enough, you've probably got a pretty good idea of whether they would take the bait or not. For some of us, that's a good basis to completely trust our mate – for others, it leaves them wondering when and where temptation will return its ugly head.
Unfortunately, the only person that knows for sure is your better half – and it's very unlikely that they're going to divulge their innermost secrets.
If you're worried about your spouse could cheat, here's 5 things you should be doing now:
1. Make sure you really know your partner intimately. This includes their background and their general personality. Do they seem to be the type to cheat?
2. Be aware of what's happening around you. Is your mate checking out other people in public? Does he / she flirt excessively any chance they get?
3. Make time for your relationship. This includes a healthy sex life and romantic gestures whenever possible. Take the time to do things for your spouse.
4. Be as honest as possible. The last thing you want to do is give them a reason to cheat on you. If they do not trust you, they may use that to justify their actions.
5. Try to curb your insecure and jealousy. Nothing will tear apart a relationship faster than this. Really try to understand how you're coming across the other person. No one likes to be under someone else's thumb.
