You love your other half and he seems to be crazy about you too. But, how do you know if he is being 100% faithful? In order to have a future with someone, there must be 100% loyalty. A study from 2016 found that 41% of married couples admitted to being unfaithful at some point in their relationship, and over half of the men and women tested said that they have been unfaithful before. So, how can you trust your partner with numbers this high? Pay attention to his behavior. This is how men act when they are being truly faithful.
He doesn't promise you things just to appease you or to shut you up. If he makes promises, he keeps them. No matter how big or how small, he won't make a promise that he can't keep and he will never let you down.
You never have to drag him or beg him to hang out with your friends. He gets along with them and loves to be around them. He contributes to the conversation and you never have to babysit him when you are out with your besties.
He knows what you are comfortable with and he never pushes boundaries. He doesn't put himself in sticky situations with other women that could potentially upset you or get him in trouble. He stays away from any shady behavior that you would not approve of.
If you snooped (which you won't because you trust him) you wouldn't find him texting with an ex. It's fine if your partner has a nice relationship with his ex. It's totally cool if they keep in touch here and there. But flirting and poking and checking in cannot go anywhere but south.
He knows that he is not just your lover, he is your best friend. You guys have so much fun together and talk about everything under the sun. Being best friends is the foundation for a successful relationship.
A little flirting here and there is okay if it's harmless, but he doesn't cross the line. He knows what you would be cool with and what you wouldn't stand for and he stays in the lines. He wouldn't do anything behind your back that he wouldn't want you doing behind his.
He is not a narcissist! Congratulations for finding a man that isn't just about himself. Men who are in love themselves are more likely to cheat as a way to inflate their ego. If he is all about you more than he is all about him, you should be in the clear.
He loves being emotionally and physically intimate with you and you guys have a healthy sex life. 52 percent of couples who were sexually unsatisfied wound up tempted to cheat, compared to the 17 percent of couples who were sexually satisfied. If you aren't being fulfilled sexually, talk to your partner. If you don't, you may wind up doing something really stupid, and it isn't worth it.
While you stand by him and are his biggest cheerleader, he doesn't depend on it. He doesn't need your constant encouragement to know that you care. He loves your compliments, but he isn't searching for them.
He doesn't control all the money in your relationship. You guys set budgets and financial goals together and talk openly about money. If he is hiding finances from you, he is doing something shady and you should be concerned.
No one is perfect, and he doesn't claim that he is. He knows his weaknesses and faults and isn't afraid to admit when he is wrong. He trusts that you will not judge him when he is wrong and you will help him better himself instead.
He sees you in his future and he isn't afraid to tell you that or talk about it. He includes you in important decisions and he honors marriage and knows it takes work. Relationships aren't easy, but if he truly respects you he will never stray.
