What's a deal breaker for you in relationships?
What act is so out of line that would cause you to break-up a relationship with your partner?
What act is so out of line that would cause you to kick a friend to the curb?
I think if my significant other were to cheat on me...IN ANY WAY....that Id end the relationship.
Because as I see it, even if they were to say they'd never do it again, they more than likely would; as well as I wouldn't be able to trust them like I did before....so Id always be thinking that they were going to cheat.
So neither one of us would be happy in the relationship
disshonesty, and dissloyalty,.... those are top priorities in my life,... if you've got no honor, then you'll not count yourself among my friends.
For me personally violence and drug & or alcohol addictions are deal breakers. Loyalty is a perception. My cultural background and religious beliefs all interplay into what I believe is loyal and what is not. Infidelity is a difficult event to forgive and even harder to get back to a healthy place in your relationship. But people make mistakes, on both sides. If you weren't clear about what you felt loyalty means to you and the person makes a mistake do you just throw them away and discount years of kindness and support. If your relationship is now in a bad place having an affair isn't the way to fix it. The mature thing is to leave. But what if you don't want to leave because you have too much invested and you make a mistake?
Physical violence is not acceptable in any form to me. Addictions can lead to other types of abuse and they are not acceptable to me. So this complicated question can only be answered individually. What is acceptable behavior to you and what is not?
Essentially if anyone I know lacks integrity, they'd eat curb. If my husband cheated or my friend tried to use me to lie to someone, anything that would give the hint that their standard of integrity isn't as high as mine, would end the relationship. It's as simple as that.
Loyalty is not a perception, it's part of integrity. It's a value and values are not perceptions.
