relationships
When in a relationship, it is important to be faithful to the other person. Whether the relationship is between a husband and wife, or boyfriend and girlfriend. No matter what happens between the two of you, always be faithful to the other person. It doesn’t matter how long you have been with the other person either, whether it is a few weeks or a month or a year or even longer. Being faithful doesn’t just mean not cheating on someone either. It also means being honest with each other, helping each other through tough times, being there no matter what and loving each other even when it’s hard.
It is never a good idea to cheat on the person you’re with, no matter how unhappy you may feel. Cheating is never the answer. Why cheat on someone you wanted to be in a relationship with in the first place? Why break someone’s heart when they find out about your infidelity. There is nothing worse than hurting someone with your words and/or actions. Finding out someone cheated on you with someone else, is a pain that you may not be able to ever completely get over. So, why cause someone the pain, that you’d never want to experience yourself?
If you have the temptation to ever cheat on your significant other, pray about it. Ask God to help you not to feel that way anymore. Ask God to help you figure out ways to make the marriage or relationship work. Ask God to open your eyes at how to change your mind about severing the relationship and to change yourself. God has worked many miracles in many relationships and He has never failed anyone.
Being honest means telling the truth no matter how hard or uncomfortable things might be. It means having the courage to always tell each other how you feel and to sometimes be blunt with each other, to get your points across. If someone needs to hear something that you know they may not want to hear, calmly explain how you feel and see how they react.
Being faithful also means being committed to another person. When the word committed comes to mind, some people may think that it may mean that every couple has to do absolutely everything together. On the contrary. Being committed doesn’t mean that you have to do everything together. Rather, it means that every couple, has to take breaks from each other. It is healthy for each person to take time away and to be with their other friends. Every couple deserves breaks from each other. Whether it is a boy’s night out at a pool hall, or girl’s night out with dinner and going to the movies. Every couple has to take healthy, much-needed breaks from one another, just so they appreciate the time that is spent together even more. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
It means that while you’re apart from them, you still think your significant other no matter what you are doing. Whether you’re at work, school, or relaxing by yourself. Vice versa, they think of you.  If you find yourself in a tempting situation, you can quietly and peacefully remove yourself from it, by telling the other guy or girl that you are in a relationship with someone else. If the problem persists, stand firm in your relationship and leave the situation. Tell your significant other about it and be honest with them. Talking about a problem that you may have and working through it together can help strengthen your relationship. It might even give you some new insights as to how to best handle the situation.
When your significant other has a problem, it doesn’t mean you have to try to fix it all for them right away, and be their hero. Although in most relationships, both people are seen as heroes to each other, no matter what they do. Maybe they’re having a problem that they don’t know how to fix at work and need to talk about it, or there is a problem with someone in their family that they’re not sure how to approach. The important thing is that you’re always there to listen and to help them through any situation that is bothering them. Likewise, they are always there to listen to you as well and help you through any problem that you may face.
Through all of life’s twists and turns being able to walk through them and talk through them with your significant other, makes everything so much easier.
When you’re in love with someone, it means loving them on both their good days and their bad days. It means loving them even when you’ve had a disagreement, argument and don’t want to be around them for a bit. It means still showing them love even when it is the last thing in the world you want to do. It means loving them the way God loved us. Being in love with someone means being there for them no matter what and showing them unconditional love and support.
Genesis 2:24: “That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.”
If a relationship is meant to last, God will allow it to last. He will work His ways as long as you remain faithful to Him and to your significant other. If you both continue to work hard at your relationship, show unconditional love and support for each other, then you can make it through anything that comes your way. With God at your side, there is nothing you can’t get through.
