Trust is an important factor in any relationship which is why cheating almost certainly spells doom for a partnership. But while infidelity remains a damaging threat to relationships, people do try to avoid it by applying several tactics.

Research has found that among many ways to stay away from adultery, around 75 percent adults opted for relationship enhancement. The tactic includes taking their partner out for dates and having more sex while putting more effort in their appearance.
