Honesty is the best policy. In all the aspects of life, honesty and loyalty is a powerful virtue. All when it comes to loyalty in a relationship, I would rather say, honesty/loyalty/trust is the base of a relationship. A relationship without trust is a building without a basement. Lying in a relationship just makes the relationship vulnerable and it can break anytime.
What Does It Really Mean to be Loyal In a Relationship?
1. Being Loyal to Thyself
Being loyal to your life partner is not only to be true to him/her, but also being honest with yourself. When you’re being disloyal to your partner, you’re nothing but just fooling yourself, maybe you will deny it and implement a counter logic to mine, but true to say, everything has consequences. The Karma! It never shows you mercy, whatever you do to others today, will come back to you tomorrow, even science also say that in Sir Issac Newton’s 3rd law of motion, which is:
Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
2. Sharing is Caring
Being loyal to your life partner means sharing everything to your partner, and by everything, I mean, “EVERYTHING”.
Sharing is caring, Sharing means you are honest with your relationship. If you do not share your feelings and thoughts with your partner, that basically means you do not love the person and you are not faithful to him/her.
3. Not Deceiving Your Life Partner
Being loyal in a relationship means you can never deceive your partner no matter what the situation is. You can never lie to your life partner, be it a little white lie, a lie is a lie. A relationship can not balance in a base of a lie.
4. Being with the Person While S/he is in Trouble
Being loyal in a relationship means being beside the person you love when s/he is in trouble. When s/he is in trouble, if you leave him/her it basically means you are a coward and have never loved him/her ever, you were just acting with yourself of being in love with the person.
