15 Quotes About Being Faithful To Your Partner

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Loyalty is everything.

Alright, if you’re a fan of cheating, raise your hand. No? No takers? Of course not. No one likes being betrayed and lied to.

When you date or marry someone, there’s an expectation of loyalty (unless you’re into open relationships, but that’s an entirely different topic). You want the person you date to be faithful to you, and that’s how it should be.

No, this isn’t article about cheating. Rather, it’s one about rewarding those who are committed. So if you’re one of them, give yourself a pat on the back! That means that you not only have found someone you can trust, but they feel the same way. You don’t have to worry (too much) when they go out or come back late.

Having a faithful relationship is something everybody should be able to expect, but also it’s something to strive for.

Being faithful doesn’t only mean that you know the other person won’t cheat. It’s also about being committed to that person. Now that could look different to everyone, but an example would be taking a genuine interest in the things they love or wanting to go with them to run errands. Little things like that show how conscious you are of making it last a long time.

Of course, if you’re already in a relationship, you already know all that. But there’s a difference between knowing and doing, so I want you to ask yourself this question: how faithful am I? It’s simple enough, but it’s also a question that I think could stand to be thought about a little more. It’s kinda like one of those things where you know what something is, but when someone asks you to describe it, you can’t.

So, if you’re really blanking on an answer, allow some others to offer up what being faithful means to them. Look to these quotes about being faithful and loyal to your partner to remind you about all the good things that come from commitment.

1. Faithfulness is rewarded.

“Those who are faithful know only the pleasures of love: it is the faithless who know love’s tragedies.” –Oscar Wilde

2. Remain faithful when dating someone.

“Leave me if you must, but be faithful to me if you are with me.” –Elizabeth Edwards

3. You shouldn’t have to worry.

20 Heartbreaking Quotes About Cheating — Do You Decide To Forgive And Forget, Or Remember Forever?

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Cheating cuts a deep wound. Can you forgive?

When you were a kid, how often did you get into fights? Even if it wasn’t much, there was always that thing you had to do afterwards: apologize. Personally I hated when adults made me say I was sorry. And honestly, I still hate it. No one can really make me say it anymore, but it always turns into one of those situations where everything is just really awkward and uncomfortable until you do.

Apologizing can be hard. Saying you’re sorry is like admitting you messed up (and maybe you did), but no one wants to actually admit that. Who likes being in the wrong? Anyone? However, if there’s anything harder than apologizing, it’s forgiving.

You’re put into the position to try to be the better person and to tell the one that wronged you that it’s okay, that there’s no ill-will. But that’s easier said than done. No matter if you accept their apology or not, there’s still a part of you that’s mad at them. Not many people can just forgive and entirely forget.

Now let’s throw fuel on the fire and say your partner cheats on you and asks you to forgive them. Now what? This obviously goes beyond accidently breaking a China plate. This is serious stuff. You feel hurt and betrayed. Can you really accept them saying sorry for something that was (most likely) a conscious act?

In my opinion, the aftermath of cheating is to be taken on a case-by-case basis. If it’s clear it was truly a drunken lapse in judgment and you’re fairly certain it won’t happen again, maybe you forgive them. But, if they don’t actually seem sorry and seem more like they’ll go back to their new partner again, then there’s no point in accepting their apology.

Ultimately, it’s up to you whether or not you forgive cheating. But whether you’re looking for a reason to or a stronger argument to break up, here are 20 quotes on cheating and forgiveness.

1. Don’t make cheating seem normal.

“The more people rationalize cheating, the more it becomes a culture of dishonesty. And that can become a vicious, downward cycle. Because suddenly, if everyone else is cheating, you feel a need to cheat, too.” –Stephen Covey

2. Unfortunately, cheating usually puts blame on both parties.

“Often, when cheating happens, we rush to place

A Big Surprise

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>
Excerpt: As she had never even dated any other than Tom, breakups were something she only knew from other people, from magazines and television.

Two sentences, that’s how much it took to shatter her life. She knew that now as she was gazing down on the cell phone screen that seemed to be intentionally glaring back at her. She had had to read the words several times to suspend her disbelief.

“Have you told your wife about me? When can I see you again?”

Alice was surprised that she didn’t feel anything, not anger or panic or even a hint of pain, as she stood next to the kitchen table with her husband’s phone in her hand. It was as if her whole being had instantly frozen up on the inside, perhaps to protect her from falling apart. But in her mind there was perfect clarity. She knew that her husband was having an affair.

She had suspected that something was wrong, but not that. Lately his demeanor had changed, not a lot, but enough to tell her that something was going on in his life that she did not know about. Because she had not been able to put a finger on what exactly was different about him she hadn’t had a good reason to ask him what was going on. She knew all too well that such conversation would go nowhere.

Tom, her husband, was not one to share his innermost thoughts and feelings with others, even his wife. He had told her once that he took pride in keeping his concerns to himself, and that she shouldn’t try to change that. All through their marriage she had learned that he really meant it, and that he had a genuine desire to keep her away from anything unpleasant. Although she knew that this could be expected from a husband who was ten years older than his wife, she had never been able to fully reconcile herself with this trait. On the one hand it was condescending, and on the other it was secretive and poisonous to their marriage. And now this had happened.

“Alice!”, a muffled voice suddenly called. It came from the bathroom where Tom had rushed in after having cut himself on a finger. Typically him he wanted to spare her of the sight of blood. It was then that Alice had picked up his cell

20 Quotes That Remind You Why You Should Never Take Back A Cheater

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Trust is earned.

There’s nothing worse than the feeling you get when you find out you’ve been cheated on. It’s gut-wrenching, blood-boiling AWFUL. There’s nothing that compares to that betrayal.

The texts you find, the necklace in the backseat of his car, the pictures on his phone. It’s rage and fear and sadness all at the same time.

Yet… we are somehow tempted to take them back anyway. It’s that smile, the way they say they’re sorry (and seem like they actually mean it), that makes you WANT to forgive them and pretend like it never happened.

You WISH it were that easy, my friend. You wish things could go back to the way they were BEFORE they were cheating. But they can’t.

If your partner even has an IDEA that they want to cheat, they’re already halfway out the door. It’s the harsh truth that someone needs to share with you. Once a cheater, always a cheater.

You’ll always be taken back to the moment when they told you, or that feeling you get when you picture them with someone else.

It sucks. It feels awful, and you don’t deserve to have to go through that once, let alone again if you take them back.

Even if they SWEAR they’ll never cheat, will you trust them? Will you believe them when they say they’re out with friends, or will you always wonder?

Is it really worth it? I know where you’re at, the in-between where you COULD take them back, apologies and all. It’s so tempting. But you can’t. Because deep down you know it would never be the same.

You’ll always be glancing at their phone or checking their location, and they’ll always be trying to hide what they’re doing from you.

You don’t want to stay, you’re angry and you don’t want your emotions getting in the way. You just want to walk out of their lives entirely and feel confident and happy about it.

It’s not easy, walking away, but you’ve GOT this. Take the baby step of reminding yourself daily that you deserve better.

You’ll be lonely and feel desperate, but you can power through. You will find that being alone is so much better than being with someone who makes you feel miserable and unwanted.

It takes some empowering moments to really show you how happy you can be without them, and you’ll never …
