Sometimes I worry that society is becoming immune to infidelity and cheating in marriages. We hear things like, “Half of all marriages end in divorce” and “Half of people in a relationship have admitted to cheating.” Many research studies attempt to estimate exactly how many people engage in infidelity, but there is no real way to measure studies that are effective, because EVERYONE, well it seems EVERYONE is CHEATING or are THINKING about doing so!
So, how common is cheating, really?
The short answer is: It is less common than you may think!
: Able to be seen through
: Easy to notice or understand
: Honest and open
: Not secretive
Here’s the reason I’ve found this definition so useful: Couples who are completely open and transparent with one another have authentic relationships. These are couples who demonstrate being real with one another and do not seek to hide matters. Here’s the beautiful part about transparency; the more transparent you are, the more your mate will trust and remain loyal to you.
When I was in elementary, my FAVORITE written exercise to do was the DOT TO DOT! Boy, did I love counting line to line, number to number to finally see the perfect picture before me. Ya see, to me, a dot to dot meant one major thing and that was that by the end of the exercise, EVERYTHING added up and made sense and the proof was clear, because the picture was clear.
In a relationship, if things that people say don’t really match up with their actions…well, that can create a problem for many people.
Through transparency, your partner is more than willing to grant you total access to their inner world. But, if the dots never add up you may be missing out on the good stuff. This is why there’s no real intimacy without transparency. Just as there can be no trust without honesty, there is no real intimacy without transparency. And what is a loving relationship without intimacy or trust? That’s right, not much.
If you are really serious about your relationship…become TRANSPARENT for 2015 and beyond!!!
