30 Important Quotes About Monogamy, Marriage & Relationship Commitments

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Monogamy gets a bad rap these days- but it shouldn’t

Monogamy — or being in a relationship with only one person at a time — is a traditional way of looking at relationships, but despite modern ideals and an ever-evolving moral code, monogamous relationships remain the standard in terms of romance. And for good reason.

When it comes to commitment and relationships, there are many different options for the contemporary couple who is interested in non-monogamy: many people opt for open relationships (where both partners agree that they can have relationships with other people, but those relationships may or may not be known by the other party), polyamory (which is the practice of having relationships with more than one partner at the same time, with the consent of all partners involved), “friends with benefits” (a relationship that isn’t fully committed to someone) or polyfidelity (a relationship that can be with many different people, but sexual fidelity is maintained in the closed relationship). 

But the biggest downfall of both monogamous and non-monogamous relationships is cheating — which is breaking the trust and commitment in a relationship with one (or many) people. 

Humans innately need something sacred — especially when it comes to relationships and commitment. Having a unique love that you have with no one else is something that each of us craves, so that’s why it’s so important to have an oath to stay faithful — ultimately the more vulnerability you show to your partner, the happier you’ll be when you meet your ideal match.

Monogamy means always having someone you trust by your side when times are tough, so having faith in your partner and making a commitment to each other is the first step to a trustful relationship.

Take a look at the list below of our collection of the best monogamy quotes that talk about why commitment is so important, and ultimately the different ways trust is earned in a committed relationship.

1. Don’t expect anything.

“Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they’re trying to find someone who’s going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.” — Tony Robbins

Music can be a great couples counselor.

Music just has a way of moving people.

Whether to motivate, console or inspire, there is something about song lyrics that can really make a person think differently.

And when it comes to the best love songs about relationships, there is no shortage of romantic love quotes to be found in the emotional material department.

Most artists have at least one song about love. Some may be more famous for singing about their exes and how moving on was beneficial to their newfound strength.

Some may sing about lost love and grieve over the pain that comes with that.

And others sing about the fiery passion you feel when true love is at the highest of heights.

For most of us, the majority of relationship songs are at least somewhat relatable, especially when you’re in that stage of being right in the process of falling in love while you are listening to them.

1. “Say” by John Mayer

Take all of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all of your so-called problems,
Better put ’em in quotations

Say what you need to say …
Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open …

These lyrics offer the epitome of sage advice for couples.

You may find it difficult to say what’s on your mind and in your heart. At times, you may even hold onto everything until it crushes you.

Simply say what you mean and mean what you say.

But say what you mean with tact, because words, once uttered, can’t be unheard.

2. “Breakeven” by The Script

Her best days will be some of my worst
She finally met a man that’s gonna put her first
While I’m wide awake she’s no

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 …
