Being faithful means consistent loyalty and trustworthiness to your partner, to a promise and or to a duty. Do you believe that being faithful alone to your partners could ensure a lasting relationship? Or how important is faithfulness of both the man to his woman or the woman to his man?

Yes. I agree with what you've said. If couples are not faithful, they may break up someday. Like for example, if the guy is not faithful, whenever that guy goes out then sees or meets another girl better than his partner then there is a tendency for him to like that girl. It really hurts. Me too. Though I don't have a boyfriend as for now, only suitor, I'm always worried every time they're having a gig with his band mates. I know that there are always pretty girls out there so I'm worried that what if he meet those girls? I'm not there? What can I do? If he's only faithful I wouldn't have any worries at all. That's why being faithful is one of the most important thing in a relationship. Its a must. It is needed. Anyway, That's all. Happy mylotting. :D

That must be a hard decision to make hooking with that guy. Temptations are always present and its a process. Once he is tempted today and able to resist it, dont expect it ends there, for another temptation will come and who knows by this time he will give in. Its really hard to be in a relationship if theres no faithfulness present.

I don't think that there is much of a point in being in a relationship with somebody else if you don't want to be faithful to them. Being in a relationship with somebody means that you should be able to respect them, and, if you are not able to do this, then you should not be with that person. I could never be with somebody who didn't respect me in this way, and I wouldn't expect them to be with me in this way, either. Too many people forgive their partner for things which I would never think of forgiving, because I have such huge respect for myself.

Absolutely right! But look outside, why are there lots of broken marriages now a days? Were they not true to their selves then they swear to each other when they first get married? It's really hard to find a person nowadays that could be the same person til the end. Maybe a percent of a hundred. Sad but true.

Of course.Without it, what for?We can`t live with someone who already betrayed us.That`s why, love is important,but the most important thing is commitment.If there is commitment, no matter how hard the problem is, they will remember why they chose that man/woman to be their partner. Faithfulness,honesty,communication and understanding and commitment. Those are the most vital factors contributing to long lasting relationship.

I agree with you that in order to maintain or even prosper your relationship status this two things should always be in partnership, faithfulness and truthfulness. If these things is not present in a relationship absolutely it won't last long.

Faithfulness plays a big role in relationships. I think if a relationship their is no faithfulness then what is the whole point of being together, their is just proves their is no true love. Being faithful in a relationship it's a must. I think faithfulness should be both for men and women since they both can turn unfaithful.

They should work for both to ensure that they remain faithful to each other. There are lots of temptations outside those four walls of marriage or relationship. And if one or both party is not being watchful of those this might break those walls and penetrate to destroy it.

It wouldn't be much of a relationship if either one wasn't true to the other. If you respect someone, which is the basis of a good relationship, whether it's marriage or a business relationship, how could you cheat and lie to them? That wouldn't make sense at all.
