6. Opportunism


Helen says: "Thankfully men cheating when an opportunity arises happens more rarely than people may think."

So that 'you're out of town, he's at a bar with his friends, sees a girl and goes for it' situation might not be as tempting as it might seem. Well it does happen, but according to Helen, not all that often. 

"To act on a fantasy usually requires mental preparation and lots of suppression of guilt so it’s unlikely a quick chat on a bar stool in a strange hotel will make someone jump into bed.

In my experience, people who stray on a whim have done it before or already given it some thought."


Trust builds respect and there’s no better defence to cheating than respect so try to give your partner some space to breathe to make sure that when he is out, he's not thinking of any chance to get away from you - give him the chance to miss you.
