Loyalty In Marriage (11 Signs You Have A Loyal Partner)

To have a lasting relationship, trust must be the foundation. A few people have issues with trusting their partners. This could be due to an awful past event. However, it might also be due to insecurity issues. Envisioning your man with someone else can make any woman distraught. So, once in a while, it's smarter to take a full breath and try building trust. You can then assess whether there's truly something to be stressed over. 

When people think of having a loyal partner, they frequently characterize loyalty in a relationship as being completely committed to a spouse with no cheating involved. While this is absolutely a significant part of being loyal, there are different aspects of loyalty.

Building loyalty in a relationship not only requires abstaining from cheating, but you also have to be steadfast in the love and respect you show towards your spouse and the manner in which you talk about him to other people. Likewise, if you are in a loyal relationship, your partner will always respect your opinion.

No doubt, your relationship can only succeed when you yourself are comfortable with it. This means you have to be certain about your spouse's loyalty. On that note, here are 11 signs you have a loyal partner.

11 Signs You Have A Loyal Partner

1. He does not hide anything from you

Married couples should be able to tell their partner everything, and not only the charming news. You both must be willing to talk about both the good and bad. If your man has always been honest and never seems to tell lies, it very well may be an indication that he is faithful to you and considers you to be someone he can trust. 

This can be his way of showing he loves you and is loyal because he knows that you will never judge him. He knows that the relationship is sufficient and you'll figure out how to traverse any circumstance together.

2. He is fully committed to the relationship

There is no perfect relationship. All relationships always have their ups and downs. When your relationship is going through a tough time and your man goes MIA, instead of trying to sort things out, then he may not be loyal to you. 

But if your man is always ready to discuss every negative situation you go through, rather than going MIA, this shows that he is committed to you and the relationship. It also shows that he values your thoughts. A loyal man must show a great level of commitment.

3. He is consistent with his feelings

Consistency is a major way to know if you have a loyal partner. If your spouse isn't consistent with his feelings for you, your guts will tell in some way.

What’s more, if he is always busy or doesn't even show up when you have something planned out, or he never keeps to his promises, this is something to look into. If his feelings for you are constant, there’s no doubt that he wants to spend the rest of his life with you. This is a sign he is loyal.

4. He does his best to make the relationship succeed

When a couple starts a relationship, they see butterflies everywhere. They communicate regularly and put in an effort to make things work. But I have noticed going forward, many relationships lose that spark at some point. No doubt, you might be scared if your man will remain loyal or not. 

However, if you’ve been happily married for a while and you’re both still willing to make things work, then this is a sign that your man is loyal. No matter what you guys go through in life, he won't ever stop him from loving you.

5. He is emotionally available every time

he is constantly thinking of you

There are a lot of insecurities in relationships. This is true for both men and women. Some men don’t like opening up to women, which might be a sign of weakness. So if your man can boldly share his weakness, insecurities, and worries with you, it shows he is emotionally connected. 

He wants to make sure you are involved in every single thing in his life. Likewise, if your man isn't connected to you emotionally, this could be a sign that he isn't loyal to you.

6. He expresses his physical attention without fear

Men love physical touch, even though some like it more than others. If your man uses every little chance he gets to show his affection for you, then this is a sign you have a loyal man. Physical attraction and affection are very important to growing your relationship. This will build loyalty, adding some form of intimacy and connection between you both. 

If your spouse shows no sign of physical attention, then there is every probability that he isn't into you anymore.

7. He never has trust issues

Trust is vital in every relationship. If your man gets jealous of every single guy he sees you with, this could be a sign that he himself isn't faithful. In other words, it might be a reflection of what he does. The fact that he doubts your feelings for him is very unhealthy for the relationship.

If your man isn't always jealous, this is a sign that he is loyal and is very confident, satisfied, and comfortable with the way the relationship is going.

8. He makes sure you are involved in all aspects of his life

We all have our personal life outside our relationship, it is quite natural. But at the same time, a loyal partner would love to share most of their life experiences with you. Nobody wants to go through life without the one they love.

This doesn't mean he won't spend time with his guys occasionally, or you can't have that girl's night out. It just means he sets you as a priority. More so, he is willing to spend time with you at every chance he gets.

When your man wants you to be actively involved in every aspect of his life, this means he is faithful. It can be his way of letting you know him better and showing that he is an open book. He has nothing to hide from you.

9. Your opinion matters

Little things matter a lot, yet they are easily overlooked by many. Your opinion must matter in every relationship. In the event that your spouse constantly thinks about your opinion and he is willing to change and develop (to make you happier and more open in the relationship), it's an indication that you mean a great deal to him. 

Changing your perspectives toward certain things can be quite difficult and if your man is up to it, it's something to embrace. This shows that he demonstrates loyalty to you. However, if he doesn't give you room to air your view about issues, then this is a red flag.

10. He is constantly thinking of you

he is emotionally available every time

As a couple, you’re probably both very busy. Regardless of your man’s busy schedule, if he creates time for you and finds a minute or two to check up on you, it’s a good sign. Also, make note of the simplest things he does like texting you an emoji. This shows that you are always on his mind. No doubt, if he has the opportunity to be with you every second, he would.

11. He doesn’t flirt with women

Most of the time, we try to justify little banter, and we are always of the opinion that banter never hurts. But we need to know when our partner is crossing the line. If your man always goes around flirting with girls. 

Throwing little hints and compliments that sound like they are interested in that person. This is a sign he isn’t loyal. But of course, if he doesn’t, it could be a sign of loyalty.
