5. Avoid Touching
Touch is a very powerful human interaction, and casual contact is often used as a form of flirting to create $exual tension as well as communicate attraction.
Hugs and kisses should be reserved for your spouse only, not wasted on casual greetings easily misunderstood. Resting your hand on a shoulder or forearm, holding a hand a little longer than necessary, massaging a neck, even patting someone’s back can all be an effort to subtly excite or arouse.
6. Avoid Consistency In Opposite $ex Conversations
If your conversations are developing a theme, favorite topic or inside jokes especially those you don’t share with your spouse, then your communication is becoming more intimate and likely to fulfill needs your spouse should fill.
Intimacy always begins with communication and increases with familiarity and comfort in communication. Don’t allow yourself to have a special friend at work or in your neighborhood, especially one that you’d rather keep to yourself or need to keep secret from your spouse. Most workplace affairs begin with people who started out as just friends. By nature, friendship is intimate, but opposite $ex friendships can quickly move into the kind of intimacy that destroys marriages and families.
7. Surround Yourself With People Of Like Minds
As much as possible, surround yourself with happily married couples that are friends of your marriage and support your relationship.
Avoid friendships with people who are cheaters, enable Cheat!ng, or encourage you to cheat. The friends you want in your life are the ones who will support you in the most ethical and empowering parts of your life.
8. Show Commitment To Your Spouse Daily
Doing special things for your spouse reminds you of what they mean to you. Leave a sweet note. Call them and connect throughout your day. Make a date to take them somewhere. Think of new things to do together.
Focus on the special things your spouse does for you instead of the little things others do to tempt you to cheat. Checking in with your spouse while you’re with other people demonstrates that you value your marriage. Spend as much recreational time with your spouse as possible, and no recreational time with other members of the opposite $ex. When you share your most enjoyable activities with other people, you put your marriage at risk and rob your spouse of the enjoyment you deserve together.
9. Wear Your Wedding Ring At All Times
Many people won’t honor that symbol of your marital status, but it is a reminder to you not them of your covenant with your spouse.
10. Open Your Life To Your Spouse
Let your spouse into all areas of your life, both figuratively and literally. If your spouse has access to all parts of your life, including your phone, computer and finances, it’s much harder to hide an affair.
Affairs need secrecy, so the more transparent you are, the lower the risk for infidelity. Give your spouse the passwords and security codes because keeping it from them could make you hide risky behavior or affairs.
