WILL YOU EVER GET YOURSELF INVOLVED IN INFIDELITY?

I was browsing through the internet when I came across this site on infidelity. I have decided to throw in this topic for discussion, ever since I knew a few couples who have this problem some time back. Some survived this trauma but most of them ended up in breakups or divorce.

Infidelity is the act of unfaithfulness towards your partner. It will involve emotions, shame, disappointment, depression and rage for a couple to love and to trust again. Most of the time, it’s an abuse of relationship where the partner is a “serial cheater” and this is the worst case for reconciling.

According to research, the first 2 years of a relationship is very vital to a couple to avoid infidelity. It will show whether it’s just an illusion or a long term marital fate. Although it is said to be the most difficult period, but it can also be a tremendous time of intimacy and discovery. There is so much to learn and express about one another before tying the knot. There are a few red flags to watch out during this period. They are:

- Lack of romance and intimacy
- Inability to have fun together
- Selfishness
- Fear of conflict
- Lack of respect
- Over commitment of time to other things
- Over spending
- Too much dependence on parents
- Sexual problems
- Addictions and/or substance abuse
- Emotional and/or physical abuse
- Unrealistic expectations
- married before age 20

Let’s do a simple test to see how faithful or flirtatious you are in a relationship. Make sure you answer the questions honestly as it will determine who is the actual YOU.

ARE YOU READY FOR THE RESULT?

TYPE A --- 90% FLIRTATIOUS
You fall in love easily most of the time getting trapped in a triangular relationship. Adding to the fact that you are not committed to your partner, you enjoy having suitors. In short, YOU ARE FAR FROM FAITHFUL.

TYPE B --- 70% FLIRTATIOUS
You are partially flirtatious by nature. You enjoy being pampered and pursued by others so occasionally you would harbour the thoughts of 'stepping on 2 boats'. BUT as you are sensitive to your partner, you do try to restrain yourself.

TYPE C --- 40% FLIRTATIOUS
You are shy by nature and have only a small circle of friends. This attributes to the fact that you would not have a high chance of getting trapped in a triangular relationship.

TYPE D --- 0% FLIRTATIOUS
You have high morality and it’s against infidelity. Whoever is with you is the most fortunate but pray that your partner does not belong to any of
the above group!

Eek! so shameful... I'm type B... but I've never ever considered cheating wor... just (hopefully) harmless flirting~~ If people misinterpret my intentions that it's their issue~

I'm serious about my relationships and would consider a breach of trust a severe and sometimes irreparable rift between my partner and I.
