Unfaithfulness is one of the most fundamental things that can easily ensnare married couples. Therefore, in order for marriages to continue, spouses need to work together. In order to strengthen their loyalty, they need to work on their marriage.
In this piece, we'll discuss seven different approaches that married couples can use to strengthen their commitment to one another.
1. Fear God and obey his commandments.
There is nothing in this world or any other that has the power to make a man or a woman live a faithful life except from having a relationship with the Holy Spirit.
Because the Holy Spirit who is in a person will gently encourage them to change their behavior if they are falling away from being faithful in their marriage when they are on the verge of doing so.
The Bible teaches that the fear of the Lord is the first step toward gaining wisdom.
And if you seek knowledge, you will learn that having an affair behind your spouse's back with another man or woman is a terribly wicked thing to do.
2. Stay away from the possibility of developing close relationships with people of the opposite sex.
When a person is already in a committed relationship, it is especially important to proceed with extreme caution if one wishes to cultivate a close friendship with a member of the opposite sex. This is true regardless of whether or not the person possesses inherent strengths or weaknesses.
The reason for this is because as you become friends with someone of the other sex, you communicate, you reason together, you share ideas, and eventually, you will discuss about difficulties about your marriage, regardless of whether they are favorable or unfavorable.
This man or woman will already know everything there is to know about your marriage by the time you come to yourself.
Additionally, the more you chat with the other person, the closer you will become, and once that happens, it will be simple for you to give in to the temptation of having an affair with them.
To be able to maintain control over the sensation that is coming, it will need a person who is mature in their faith in Christ to return their focus to themselves.
When you are married, you should avoid having any kind of friendship with someone of the other sex in order to prevent being tempted.
3. Talk positive about your spouse partner
Never, ever, ever speak ill or badly behind your partner's back to any man or woman, including your mother and father, members of the church, or anyone else.
When you start telling other people about the weaknesses of your spouse, those other people will start giving you advice, and before you know it, you will be dancing to their tune.
Others, including your neighbors, members of your family, and friends, as well as anybody else you discuss your spouse with, will lose respect for both your partner and your marriage as a whole.
Therefore, you should always make positive comments about your spouse to other people.
4. Wear your wedding ring
The wedding ring that each of you wears together is a symbol of the union that you and your partner share. Additionally, it is the ring that tells everyone that you have already found someone to belong to.
Therefore, in order for you to be tied down and to be reminded that you aren't single, you should never, ever remove the ring off your finger.
Keep your ring on at all times. This assists tremendously in warding off the allure of unfaithfulness.
5. At any social event, you should sit next to your spouse.
If you and your spouse are attending a church service, a funeral, or any other type of social function, you shouldn't seat to the south while they are in the north.
At all times, maintain a close proximity to your spouse. You owe it to the world to show the world how intimate and romantic your marriage is.
It also acts as a preventative measure against unfaithfulness.
6. Pray continually.
When we have a relationship with God, we have access to the most powerful instrument in life, which is that it keeps us in check at all times. Therefore, praying together is the best technique to ensure that you and your partner will never cheat on one other.
You should pray to God that your love for one another will grow deeper, and you should do your best to exercise self-control. As you continue to do that, the Holy Spirit will act as a check on you whenever you start to stray from the path that should be followed in your marriage.
