A Short Article about Infidelity
Cheating. It's something that's so common in today's society that recent studies show about 30% - 60% of all married individuals commit infidelity at some point during their marriage. When you look at it more carefully, it's actually very depressing because the probability of your spouse committing adultery is quite high. When has the old adage "till death do us part" became nonexistent?
When you commit yourself to someone, you vow yourself to be theirs and they be yours forever. Marriage is not just an ordinary label that you can take off whenever you want. Falling in love is supposed to be magical and it should last forever but we become so accustomed to our partners that we start taking them for granted.
Cheating is not just a one way street. It happens because both partners commit a mistake. It may be because we focus too much on the other aspects of our lives that we often forget the greatest commitment that we made, to become loyal and fulfill our partner's lives. If there's one thing that I learned from all the sad stories about couples parting ways, it's that the relationship could have been saved by simply talking to each other.
The only medium that we can control in romance is how and when we communicate with our partner. Having frequent talks about how the relationship is going helps a lot. I refuse to believe that the the individuals people cheat with provides something that the person being cheated on can't give. It's just that people become so blinded with their lives and they start to forget about the individuals who gave them everything they wanted in the first place.
