116: Affair Proof Your Relationship

The incidence of infidelity in the United States is greater than 50%. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that we’re doing something wrong. A huge part of preventing infidelity is communication with your partner. For example, have you communicated your deepest sexual desires to your partner without fear of judgement? Today’s show will outline the steps to share feelings like this and to affair proof your relationship.

In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • How to come to terms with the fact that we are all sexual beings, and will find people other than our partner attractive.
  • Avoiding the irrational belief in your relationship that, “we love each other and therefore will never stray.”
  • Facing your own fears of your partner being attracted to someone else.
  • Learn to know the person you love on the deepest level possible.
  • How to talk about these deep emotional feelings with your partner.
  • Why the more you talk about your weaknesses, the stronger you and your relationship will become.
  • And much more!

Steven Ing is reframing an important conversation in society one about the intelligent management of human sexuality. He is a sought-after trainer, speaker and therapist, bringing nearly three decades of experience to his audiences and clients.
