Commitment and fidelity are often hot topics for most Singaporean couples. Partners expect each other to remain committed and faithful until one of them strays from the path. This is considered as the most common reasons for breakups among couples. Without commitment and fidelity, trust cannot be built and relationships are only ticking time bombs. Sometimes, love is not enough to keep a relationship going. Unfaithfulness may be caused by the cheating partner’s immaturity and weak character. Here are some tips on how you can remain faithful to your partner:
Honesty is the best policy
It is important to be honest with yourself on why you want to be in a relationship with the other person. Make sure that your intention is clean and ideal for the both of you. Knowing with certainty deep inside you that you honestly love the other person will make you want to cherish the other person further. Also, make it a point to be as completely honest with each other even when it comes to little things. If you can keep small things from each other, then you can keep big things from each other as well.
Don’t rush things into a relationship
Get to know the person well before committing into a relationship. The song’s right that only fools rush in. So take your time and take things slow. It’s for both of your advantage that you really get to know each other well and see each other for the persons that you are and not through rose-colored glasses and still learn to appreciate each other despite your imperfections.
Treat each other as equals
It’s already the modern age so it’s only just fitting that couples treat each other as equals. Failed relationships are due to unhappy couples with an imbalanced sense of equality. Gone should be the days as well as the thinking that the men are the superior ones in the relationship and the women inferior. There are more chances for relationships to succeed when you both consider each other as equal persons.
Treat each other with respect
Showing respect goes a long way in making your partner feel loved and valued as an individual. Show your respect by listening carefully with your partner and not subjecting your partner into ridicule. The moment that you make your partner feel belittled is when your relationship starts to crumble.
