Can you prevent someone from cheating?

Can you prevent someone from cheating?

Is there things you can do to prevent your partner from cheating on you? Or is it impossible? Because at the end of the day if a person wants to cheat they will cheat. Thats kinda how I feel.

I agree that if the person wants to they will, but a good way to prevent someone who typically wouldn't from doing something like that is to treat them right! Don't leave anything lacking in the relationship and that doesn't just mean sex! Include them, spend time with them, share interests, occasionally try something that's new to both of you! Make sure they feel loved and appreciated. Have open communication.

Those are the best ways to prevent cheating in a person who would be on the fence about things like that, or typically wouldn't.

To those who just are that type of person if they've cheated in the past and it wasn't due to their partner not doing what I've stated above chances are it will happen again and if you are ever the person they cheated WITH, don't think that because they cheated with you that you're special, because often, there is someone special on the side if they are with you too.

Honestly, I can't stand cheaters!

I have always said that you can't make a person not cheat. And you can't spend your time worrying if they will. Like Peggi said, focus on the relationship at hand and keeping it healthy. Also, you have to put effort in making yourself happy and content as well. Nothing is sexier to me than a person who is confident in their own skin and knows what makes themselves happy. If you are putting your focus on the health of the relationship, your partner and yourself and they still cheat, they aren't worth your effort and you should move on.

It's true. You can't stop someone from cheating. I used to think that if I kept a man sexually satisfied that they would not cheat- we had loads and loads of sex! Even when I was not in the mood I never said no. He cheated anyway. I can't stand cheaters either!

OK, I won't disagree with the previous posters here. However, I will say that even though you cannot prevent a cheater from cheating, you CAN push a NON-cheater into someone else's arms. Communication is key, in my opinion.

Short of chaining someone up and keeping them against their own will you can't completely fool proof prevent a human from doing ANYTHING.

Are there things that will likely drive someone to cheat? Sure. Are there things that will reduce the chances, absolutely. But there is no formula.

My personal feeling is that if you feel that there is a possibility that the person you are with is going to cheat you might as well break it off right then and there. How can you stay in a relationship when you are always thinking your "Significant" other could be out cheating on you. Trust has always been a big thing for me and once that trust is lost the relationship is over. (I also went through a bad relationship with a girl who got on drugs during our relationship, so I definitely have some trust issues.)

I feel that you have to keep open communication. Cheating is usually due to an underlying problem, and if you can nip that issue in the bud it won't grow out-of-control

I'm pretty much going to echo most of the things said already.

You can't control someone...and it's not a good thing if you could.

If a person doesn't have a reason to cheat, they won't. Some people just aren't capable of a monogamous relationship either. It'd be best to avoid such a thing with them anyway and just leave them if they stray.

i don't think you can prevent someone from cheating.

you can encourage openness and honesty in your relationships and let your partner know they can bring problems, concerns, etc. to you if something isn't making them happy. but ultimately the choice to do something harmful is theirs.

Very much agree. You can't control another person.

People are always going to do what they want to do. The only thing you need to do is trust that they won't hurt you. For years I was always the one that was cheated on. My husband had to smack me with a dose of reality to show me that he wasn't going to stray.
The most important parts of a relationship is communication and trust. It takes effort from both parties to keep the relationship solid.
