Marriage Help: How You Can Affair-Proof Your Marriage

The recent Ashley Madison hack has made infidelity front-page news. And I’m sure you couldn’t help but think – did my spouse have an account? Maybe you even searched the hacked files for your spouse’s name.

Infidelity can destroy marriages. Even strong marriages. And in the wake of a cheating spouse, you are left with betrayal, anger, guilt, and insecurity.

While statistics on infidelity probably aren’t 100% accurate due to couples wanting to keep their privacy, research estimates that one-quarter to 60 percent of married couples will engage in some sort of infidelity during their marriage. These numbers might even be a bit conservative when you remember that nearly half of marriages end in divorce.

Even though you don’t plan to cheat on your spouse when you get married, there’s always the thought of what if. What if my spouse cheats on me? What if I cheat on my spouse? On some level – even if we don’t think about it on a day-to-day basis – we all know that there’s always a possibility.

So why is cheating on our minds?

There are tons of reasons out there. Cheating is prevalent everywhere we go. We talk about it more openly. It’s depicted on TV shows and movies. And with all of the technology we use on a regular basis, cheating seems easier than ever – if not inevitable. The internet and social culture we perpetuate seems to only help infidelity with the existence of e-mail, texting, chats, and the recent development of apps that can hide texts and pictures or even make them disappear.

Why not use New Years as a time to make a stronger commitment to one another? If the last year has been rough for the two of you, or if you just want to keep improving your relationship, here are a few resolutions recommended by the Houston relationship counselor to help strengthen your relationship.

Houston Relationship Counseling: How to Avoid Holiday Breakups

In 2010, a data journalist looked at Facebook statuses that had the phrases “broken up” or “break up.”

He discovered that breakups of people in romantic relationships started to increase after Halloween and leading up to Christmas. This time is more commonly known as “holiday season” but, with this data, it could also be called “breakup season.” Interestingly, splits also tend to increase around Easter and Passover, as well, but the traditional “holiday season” still shows the biggest bump.
