One of our readers recently asked us to address the topic of faithfulness. I jumped at the opportunity to write the article. I went to Google to get some other perspectives before writing, and what I found wasn’t all that great.

Maybe this reader felt the same way, and needed some encouragement. There are so many opposing forces against our marriages. If you aren’t careful your habits can be dictated by this. It’s a tough fight, but your marriage is worth it.
The things you do day in and day out will set you up for success or failure in your marriage. Your marital habits can lead you to infidelity, or a faithful marriage. I’ve seen both, and I’ve noticed some habits that separate them. If you want to make sure you have a faithful marriage, I encourage you to practice the 7 habits of a faithful marriage.
