1. Be Alone (Together)

Without the kids or friends. The more separate a couple’s work life, social life and daily living situation is, the more likely they are to cheat. Tell him how much you appreciate him, both as a husband and a lover.

2/ Be Open-Minded

Find out what would make your partner feel more sexually attractive. Speak out about what you want in turn.

3/ Be Honest

It’s okay to feel attracted to other people; in fact, 98 percent of married men and 80 percent of married women admit to fantasising about someone other than their partner. Instead of going into denial, give yourself permission to fantasise – just don’t act on it. As they say: it doesn’t matter where you get your appetite, as long as you come home for dinner.

4/ Be Up For It

If one partner routinely wants sex and the other person refuses it, problems – including infidelity – often arise. So initiate a roll in the hay when you’re feeling frisky and try saying yes even if you aren’t in the mood.

5/ Be Enterprising

If you’re having sexual problems, or just not having enough sex, see a counsellor so you can avoid the inevitable atrophy.

6/ Be Surprising

Recreating excitement can actually boost dopamine and oxytocin, two brain chemicals responsible for that love rush. So indulge in a spontaneous road trip, book a hotel room in your own city, take him on an unexpected date…

Here’s what to do if you think your partner might be cheating. Plus: “I had an affair with a married colleague – this is how it happened.”
