It is undeniable that a married individual can become physically attracted to another person other than his or her spouse.
However, a problem will arise when he or she allows such attraction to linger in the mind and acts out the fantasy to reality. It becomes more irresistible when he or she willingly exposes him/herself to the temptation and are unable to control the emotions or hormones.
Based on these reasons, one can say that the partners either have lost their love or they have loved their partners less than they had before. So, what should married couples do to prevent such situation and prevent one’s self from being tempted?
We can’t prevent temptation but we can overcome it. And the antidote to temptation is - LOVE. You have to love your partner. Love him or her as he or she is, not for what he or she has or can be. Love him or her despite his or her flaws, imperfections and idiosyncrasies.
So, how do you prevent your spouse from going astray with love? Express your love. Do it with simple things such as giving love messages, giving appreciation for the simple things he or she does. Be affectionate. Hug him or her. Hold him or her tight. Kiss him or her. Forgive his or her small mistakes. Overlook his or her imperfections.
It takes a lot of will power to love the person who has imperfections but if you do, then that's when you truly love. If you don’t want to be tempted and break your marriage, then love your partner. Do it, for your partner, for yourself and for the sake of your children. As they say, if there’s a will, there’s a way.
Infidelity can cause great damage not only to you or your spouse, but also to your children and to your family as a whole. If you both love each other , you or your spouse will not come near tempting situations and you will resist temptation.
