Cheating in a relationship or marriage can become a cause for misunderstanding, fight, domestic violence, separation, heartbreak or divorce. Not everyone can put up with a cheating spouse. Is your spouse cheating on you? Do you want to know how to make him or her forget his or her sexual escapades and focus only on you? Do you want to know how to win back the heart and trust of your partner? In this post, I will not only show you how to handle a cheating spouse but I will also show you what you can do and your spouse will never cheat on you in this life.

What is cheating?

Cheating in a relationship or marriage is the same. It simply means when your spouse is having an affair with another person behind your back. Marriage according to the bible is designed between one man and one woman. When a man or woman has two or more lovers of the opposite sex whom he or she is having an affair with, that person is cheating. A cheat is a thief. So permit me to state that cheating is stealing what does not belong to you. It is trespassing into someone else garden. Cheating is a sin. God hates adultery or fornication. That's why He created the institution called marriage, so that every man and woman can find sexual satisfaction with his spouse only within the matrimonial bed. 

Different Kinds of cheating

Cheating is not only limited to sexual intercourse with someone of the opposite sex , outside marriage. Cheating has many levels and different kinds. If there's any man or woman you are spending more time with at the office, workplace, school or anywhere else more than your spouse, that's cheating. It doesn't matter whether you people are doing anything or not. For crying out loud, you shouldn't always be found going out with another woman or man, leaving your spouse at home. There some men that like to go out with their secretary, colleague at work etc. Sir you are cheating on your wife! You know why? Because you are indirectly breaking the bond of unity between you and your wife. There are many married women who come to Facebook, Instagram and other social media platforms to have a romantic chat with their so called "Facebook friends" of the opposite sex. Madam that is cheating. Yes you claim he has not met you physically, but his words are turning you on. That's adultery in Bible panorama. Cheating can occur in many ways. Ranging from having the so called bestie, lonely night calls with an ex or admirer when your spouse is not around. Let me put it this way. When you are sexually aroused or horny, anything you say or do with anyone of the opposite sex outside your spouse to satisfy your feelings and desires is cheating. Whether is speaking on the phone, chatting, smooching, touching, kissing, fondling, fingering, sexual intercourse, going out together for shopping, going out for a lunch together etc. Let me say this for our better understanding. When a man gets married, he ceases to have woman or girlfriend. His wife becomes his only female friend. The same applies to the woman. It's not normal for a married woman to introduce another man to her husband as her friend. It's unethical. The moment you are married, as a wife, all the men who were your friends when you were single become your brothers. That's how you should address them. They are now either your brother in Christ, your colleague at work, a Client, customer or neighbor. Not boyfriend! 

15 Reasons why People cheat in a Relationship

As people's faces are different, that's how the reasons some people cheat in relationships differ. I have seen a situation where a married woman cheated on her husband simply because the man beat her. So she thought the best way to get back on her husband was to cheat on him. Later on, after they have reconciled the memory of her cheating kept hurting her and she couldn't have peace in her heart until she confessed her sin. If you want to know how to handle a cheating spouse, below are some of the reasons people cheat in a relationship :

How to handle a cheating spouse

When you find out your spouse is cheating on you, most times the fault may not be from him or her. So it is not enough to shout and burn down the roof of the house. But you need to sit down and find out why your spouse is cheating on you and what you can do to remedy the situation without adding salt to injury. Here are practical steps you can take.

1. Effective communication

Infidelity or cheating in marriage always begin where communication ends. Any time you are not talking to your spouse and he or she is very happy and excited, know that someone else is taking to him or her. So you need to talk. I don't mean heaping of blame, accusations or insult. I mean heart to heart talk with your spouse. First ignore his or her mistakes and appreciate some of your spouse's little efforts. Tell your spouse how you love and appreciate having him or her as your spouse. Everyone likes to be appreciated. Then ask questions to know if there are some things you are doing he or she doesn't like. Talk about sex. Yes ask him questions about his or her sexual fantasies. Ask questions to know his or her rating on your sexual performance or if there are areas he or she wants to be touched. Some people may not be willing to talk about everything about their sexual life but on a normal day your spouse will like to tell you what makes him or her go crazy in the bedroom. Talking as two mature adults can solve alot of problem for you.

2. Give your cheating spouse alot of Attention

When your spouse is cheating on you, someone is giving him or her the kind of attention you are not giving him or her. Sometimes we forget that your spouse didn't get married to your money, house, car or job, he or she got married to you. So anything you are giving your spouse without giving your time and yourself is a bait for cheating. Many people are physically married but emotionally single. When your spouse is feeling lonely or bored, he or she needs you to talk to him or her. No material provision you are making available can replace your presence and attention. Spend quality time with your spouse! When you give quality attention to your spouse, cheating will end. Sometimes take a leave from your office just to have enough time to spend at home with your spouse. It's unfortunate that many men are out there working hard to put food on the table for their wife and kids, ignorantly they stay away from their home for several weeks and months only to come back home meeting another man in his bedroom doing his marital duties for him. You need balance dude. Don't work for money and leave your wife at home for another man to curdle for you. She is a human with flesh and blood. She is not a bunch of wood which has no sensory organs or feelings.

3. Give your cheating spouse love

This is where many married people miss it most. We usually think that once your spouse is cheating, he or she doesn't love you again. That's not the whole truth. Sometimes someone can be madly in love with you and still cheat on you. When your spouse is cheating on you, he or she is looking for love which someone else is willing to offer. Remember we have different love language and love codes. For one woman, love is petting her and calling her sweet names but for another woman love is when a man sits up to his responsibilities and provides for his household. So try to understand your spouse's love language and speak the same to him or her. Love covers a multitude of sin. Love is one language everyone around the world understands. Even the blind can see love, the deaf can hear it and no one can reject love. Love is not a song. Love is kindness, compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, trust. Love is not just talk, love is an action. The best way to handle a cheating spouse is not to crucify him or her. If you want to make a cheating spouse not to cheat on you again, whether you catch him or her in the act or not show how him or her love that no one else can show him. Go out of your way to be good to your spouse. Do you know what will happen when you do this? His or her conscience will start judging him or her. Do you know your cheating spouse is expecting you to retaliate with hatred and malice, so he or she can continue cheating on you? But when you choose to show love and not hatred, you have finished him or her. Watch what the bible says, 

 " Therefore if thine enemy  hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so  doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head." Rom 12:20

Work hard to ensure that the basic needs such as food, water, shelter and clothing are available for the family members. This will help to prevent either the man or woman from looking for sugar mummies or sugar daddies for money or any kind of help. 

6. Watch your spouse back. Find out who goes out with your spouse. Find out who your spouse stays with in the office. Don't give any room for any seductress or husband snatcher to take your husband from you. Take your place as the queen and wife of your husband. Let his friends know you. Let his colleagues at work know you. Sometimes sex traps can be avoided when couples learn to go out together and do things in common.
