After you married your wife, you will continue to see many women that seem more beautiful, caring, loving and curvy than her.
After you married your husband, you will continue to see many men that more handsome, rich, caring, has well built body , and than your husband.
Because you are married won’t make these people to disappear into thin air.
You will see them everyday, in your offices, churches, market places, neighborhoods etc.
With the high rate of infidelity going on right now, you need to protect yourself. Some people don’t care whether or not you are married.
Now, if you don’t want to cheat on your partner, then you have to do something about it.
1. Exercise Self-control
According to Webster Dictionary, self-control means restraint exercised over one’s own impulses, emotions, or desires.
In other words, it means to have control over your feelings or actions.
So, exercise control over your feelings and actions.
Control your eyes. It’s okay to admire someone but know when to stop. Don’t overlook.
Jesus said, “Let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ be ‘No’ anything other than that cometh from the evil one.”
Let your looking stop at admiration. I repeat, don’t overlook.
You have the power to choose.
2. Set Boundaries
Mind the manner of conversation you have with an opposite sex.
Know when to call or not to call except in cases of emergencies.
Don’t stay together alone in one place or in an isolated environment.
Job said, “I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?”
Do the same thing, that you won’t look at the opposite sex unnecessarily.
Avoid too much closeness with the opposite sex. Too much closeness will trigger feelings.
Limit unnecessary conversations. You’re setting yourself up for trouble.
The soup you don’t want to eat, don’t smell it.
3. Be Content With Your Partner
Lack of contentment is one of the sponsors of being an unfaithful partner.
Therefore, value your wife or your husband. Those other people that seem more attractive, caring, loving etc., are not always like that. You don’t know the details.
List all the good qualities of your wife or husband and admire and appreciate them.
This will help you to know how valuable your partner is and also to place value on them.
4. Fear God
To fear God doesn’t mean to be afraid of God but to reverence God. That is, to have deep respect for God.
You know it when you have deep respect for someone and that respect makes you not to behave anyhow.
God is the One that instituted marriage and said that marriage bed should be undefiled.
Therefore, if you fear God, if you will not want disrespect Him, you will be faithful to your partner.
5. Consider The Feelings Of Your Partner
When we put our partners in consideration when when we want to do some things, it will help us to make the right decisions.
When you know that your partner will be pained, hurt, traumatized, betrayed and can even commit suicide upon learning about your infidelity, you will think twice.
So consider how your partner will feel when you start misbehaving with that lady or guy. Consider.
In conclusion, there is nothing good, godly, clever, admirable or honorable about infidelity. Avoid it. It better to walk away honorably. God hates double standards.
