"Fidelity” and “faithfulness” in a relationship have come to mean having physical and/or emotional intimacy with only one person at a time.
But what if being faithful to a partner had nothing to do with sex?
I know, right?!
It's a radical concept.
Maybe you feel safest sharing physical and emotional intimacy with one person at a time and that’s what you want in return.
Many people feel that a closed container allows them to go deeper with a partner than they could otherwise, and that’s beautiful.
If that's your definition of faithfulness, that's cool. But being faithful to a partner might also mean committing to growing together and supporting them in their growth even when it’s hard. That’s the kind of faithfulness I’m interested in. 💫 As long as the people you’re in relationships with share your values, there are many right ways to define your morality.
