Divorce and annulment is just a few results of broken relationship.Why? Some narrated that it is because of the temptation.Temptation is something that makes you do something even if it is not ought to be done.One best example are the men who are usually tempted to have another affair with another younger sexy girl.I really wonder what is the power of temptation that can really destroy family that has been built for centuries but mere months to destroy..In your life, did you try to resist temptation or you are being tempted?what are those things you're tempted to do so?

I have not been tempted in my relationship.. I have the best partner in the world.. See I am a crazy person and my partner understands that but loves me anyway.. sometimes I just can't believe that but I am so grateful to have her in my life that I thank the goddess for sending her to me.

To fall into temptation is a choice, just like any other in life. So many relationships broke because of temptation. But if you really love and care for the person, no matter how tempting the feeling may get, you can control them.

I do agree with you reglin...it really depends on how strong the person is.

Temptation is everywhere! It's all about the person's control and will to remain loyal that makes or breaks a relationship. I thank God that my husband doesn't give me this problem, and I also thank God that I don't have a problem remaining loyal to my man.

That's absolutely true. It all depends to the person if he/she is willing to go with that temptation

I used to have a temptation extremely hard for me to resist. The only thing that helped me was constantly praying and never giving up. Each time you say no it gets easier the next. Once I built that strength, it was nothing for me to resist my temptations. I now have power over it and it's not a worry anymore, which feels ten times better than when I would give into it.

I would say trust is the key to a long lasting relationships. No matter how you loved your partner and how you avoid the temptation, it will all go to waste when the trust is broken. If you trust your partner, you would not even think that he/she will be tempted by others. And if temptation sets in, it would still trust that will make its way to the one you loved. Temptations are always a treat in a relationship, and its good that both parties should strengthen their bonding through trust with each other.

It's a test for every couple. It's just a matter of respect to your partner and responsibility to your family.

nice question! and i'm also thankful that our love for each other is enough and more than enough to entertain temptations. Anyway, em and my husband talked about that one time while we where in bed. before we sleep we love to chat you know :) Anyway we both agreed that you can avoid temptation, if from the very beginning you avoid and don't or never entertain it. Because once you entertain it, it will come.. again and again... like a usual visitor, once they felt welcomed in your home they'll visit you more often :) So don't get involve, don't entertain that's it. I had temptations too, but i was able to not entertain it because first of all i love my husband and my family!

I think the Bible teaches us this from the very beginning. That is how good and evil began when Eve was tempted to eat the apple. Of course we do, and we have to learn to fight it. I am preparing to learn more things in the Bible, and I found out it tells us how to make it in life.

This is something I don't have to worry about. I love the man I am with so much. I don't feel at this stage in my relationship thatI could be tempted to cheat on him. I havehad offers and turned them down.
