I -WAS- in a long distance relationship that lasted for six months. It wasn't very long but to me it was forever. During those months, I remaind faithful to him because he is a soldier in Iraq. Plus, he was never anything but kind and loving to me. What happened was he realized that he would be best alone so it wasn't due to any infidelity on our parts. My last long distance relationship however was riddled with unfaithfulness on both parties so it was easier to forgive...but we haven't forgotten. Would I do a long distance again? I don't know...I wouldn't do one no sooner than I would one that was close by... Anyone who is in a relationship deals with more than just themselves...they have to deal with the other's BS and moods...and that takes a strong person. *Pleiades

Hi Akangirl. Thanks for the discussion, its good being able to speak frankly about these topics here. I do not really worry about being faithful to my spouse anymore since we have been married for 38 years already and we have always been very close. I have always enjoyed looking at other women but, I have never wanted to stray from my relationship. Happy MyLotting...

As a wife, no. Being faithful to your spouse is the vow that you made before God and man as witnesses. If you seldom find infidelity in a relationship that is depending on the person's decision if they indulge themselves to dishonesty,self centeredness and disrespect to the person they once loved. If you attached your emotions on distance and such as reasons for difficulty of staying faithful, then i guess you will never ever be contented with anyone else but yourself. Be it far away or not, the temptations will just be the same because you have invited that idea into your mind. Do not be deceived by such emotions or feelings.

Yeah as a wife we have responsibilities and also we are assured of our man's love for us rather than being a girlfriend with so many temptations and not being sure of our man's love

No i do not find it hard to stay faithful with my husband. I love him very much and their is not another person that could take his place. He makes me happy, and he takes care of me. Even if we were in a long distance relationship right now that would not make a difference, i would still be faithful to him. I would be lonely with him not here but that would not make me look else where for something else. When you really love some one with your whole heart, It is not hard to be faithful.

No, i don't find it hard to stay faithful to my partner. I am not in a long distance relationship like you, though. My partner works away from home, he is usually gone for a week up to a month at a time. We trust each other, and therefore we don't have to worry if the other is being faithful or not.

No, i did not find it hard to stay faithful to my husband. Even though we got long distance relationship before but trusting each other is very important to make your relationship stronger. Now, were together and everything went well and we don' have any problems. Just think positive things and trust your partner. Nice question.

Hi there, i can say that im not struggle to stay faithful to my partner because we are together and my heart is belongs to him. Well sometimes we have arguments but we can kiss and make up before going to bed. His a perfect man to me and i have no time and interest looking for another man. Happy posting.
