According to studies, sixty percent of men and forty percent of women will have an affair at some point in their relationship. This statistic shows that people who stay loyal and faithful to their partner is a part of a growing minority.

Before I met my wonderful partner, Andy, I had my fair share of heartaches. I had learned what it was like to walk in the moccasin of being a cheated girlfriend. The experience really crushed me to bits that I vowed to never walk that path again.

From that horrible experience I made a decision to do everything in my power help other women survive the crashing effect of infidelity, which I put together in “You Can Get Him Back.”

Being a victim of infidelity, I learned that having an affair is not just about sex, but it’s all about the emotional connection.

It’s about showing your personal and private self to others. It’s all about sharing intimate details and revealing information to another person for what you should be holding personal to your partner and continuing to put your time and energy somewhere else which drives you away- physically and emotionally from your partner.

And because I want to prevent that awful experience from happening again and make my present relationship in the happy side of the statistics, I put together a number of relationship advice on how to affair proof your marriage.

* Take conscious effort to appreciate. When you have tons of things on your plate - kids, deadlines, chores, and bills, you tend to overlook or sometimes neglect the hard work and efforts of your man. This is where men tend to stray. Men need that constant validation and appreciation from you. Affair proof your relationship by recognizing your husband’s effort. Thank him not only for the extra work he did at home, but for the hard work he did for you and your children. Never lose that sense of admiration and appreciation. The more you give and show appreciation, the more good things will come back to you.

* Give yourself extra time for intimacy and sex. Affair proof your union by making a connection through sex and intimacy. Squeeze in at least forty-five minutes alone with your spouse. Lock the doors, sleep naked, cuddle, rough house, and frolic, be sensual to each other.

* Have a conversation about cheating. Studies revealed that seventy- seven percent of men who strayed have a best friend who cheated. But instead of forbidding him from his cheating friend, have an open conversation about their itinerary.

* Have a regular date. To affair proof your relationship, it’s best that you should keep an open communication. You can do this by having regular dates, but there’s a rule- both of you should avoid talking about kids, money and business during your regular dates.

* Learn how to fight fair. When you fight, fight with a purpose. Do it to resolve the problem. Don’t fight for the sake of winning the argument or power play.

Don’t wait to for infidelity to plague your relationship. Affair proof your marriage now by making an effort to live a relationship- centered lifestyle. A blissful, faithful and fun relationship is very doable, just follow the relationship advice given to you and enjoy the love and companionship you truly deserve.
