In present society, dating or courtship (whichever concept that suits you) has become prevalent that almost everyone is involved in it. From teenagers to adults, intimate relationship is one topic that is always on our daily discussion menu. From breakups to makeups, from engagement to weddings – the transition is simply that fluid. Ordinarily, intimate relationship is supposed to be between two consenting adults but that idea is almost an expired one. Today, boys and girls, men and women are increasingly engaged in what is referred to as “double-dating”. In this piece, we are going to explain the concept of double-dating, the reason why many are engaged in it, benefits and the dangers of such behaviour.

What is Relationship? 
First, relationship here means a connection of intimacy existing between two or more people which usually involves romance. The involved individuals most depend on each other for emotional, spiritual and material comfort. Many relationships often take off with friendship, a date, courtship and possibly marriage. Marriage being the highest form of relationship.

Dating period often is a time when relationship is when the individuals assess each other's suitability as a partner in an intimate relationship or as a spouse. The concept of double-dating is a coinage that describes a situation where an individual is involved in more than one relationship. This could mean multiple dating as the case may be. In today’s society, even married individuals have been alleged to be involved in multiple relationships. We therefore decided to sort people’s opinions regarding the reason why double-dating has become prevalent.

Why people double-date
There are many reasons why individuals engage in double-dating. As suggested by sampled respondents, the reasons varies and almost the same for both gender.

Uncertain Relationship (trust issue): there is the believe that many are unsure of the commitment of their partner. Because of this, they often decide on what many refer to as “back up” or “spare tyre” relationship. This in case of any eventuality with the main person (break up), they will fall back on the back up or spare partner.

Comparison of Characters: Individuals usually look out for certain qualities in their partners. They engage in double-dating to compare the characters of their partner to be able to make appropriate decision.

Greed: Some are simply greedy and materialistic. In order to satisfy their material cravings they resort to double-dating.

Adventure: They are those who like to have varied experiences in relationship. They want to a “taste” of all of the sensation. This often involves risky behaviours.

Peer Pressure: Most of the time, friends and colleagues influence their peers into unholy acts. These friends will give reasons to justify why you should indulge in the act, insisting that there will be no harm. Eventually, some succumb to the pressure, especially when it is persistent.
There are many other reasons as to why double-dating is prevalent, including economic, broken family and infidelity. In all of these, double-dating cannot be justified as an option. 

It is however has expected consequences that are usually costly.these consequences are,

1. Transmission of STIs: The major consequences of a sexual relationship that is affected by double-dating is sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Having multiple sexual partners exposes one to deadly diseases, as HIV/AIDS, gonorrhea, herpes, etc. which are sexually transmitted diseases.

2. Infidelity: Double-dating in a relationship brings with it the issue of infidelity. The relationship is automatically bedeviled with distrust and if not handled appropriately ends badly.

3. Violence: Once infidelity creeps in as a result of distrust, the relationship may start witnessing violence.

4. Divorce: In marriages, double-dating results to distrust and maybe violence and ultimately in divorce.

5. Emotional trauma: The resultant effect of double-dating is depression. The after effect of a broken relationship or marriage is a emotionally traumatic that could have been blamed for some suicides.
The dangers of double-dating cannot be exhausted. It is however scary that double-dating has become almost an acceptable behaviour in our society. The need to apprehend it becomes necessary now than even, hence every individual must re-evaluate our behaviours to ensure that we do not jeopardize our relationships and lives.

There are a few temptations that can ruin your relationship, no matter how much you love your man. Unfortunately, we sometimes have desires that lead to destruction and ruin even the strongest relationships.

That’s why we decided to share with you today.

1. Constant lying
When you did something that you know your boyfriend or husband wouldn’t approve of, it can be

tempting to lie to him about it. While it can be easy to lie, your lies will haunt you down the road. If you really love each other, you should never be afraid to tell the truth, no matter how hard it can be. A strong relationship is never based on lies. Remember it.

2. Desire to cheat on your partner
One of the worst temptations that ruin your relationships is the desire to cheat on your partner. If you are in a long lasting relationship and you meet another man, everything can become so complicated. The only way to maintain your relationship strong is to refuse to give into that dangerous temptation, if you really love your partner.

3. Stealing your partner’s things
When you are in a long term-relationship and you are living together, it can be tempting to steal your partner’s clothes or cash without asking him. While many couples are okay with it, others are not comfortable. Your boyfriend/husband has the right to know what you take or how much money you take. Don’t take anything without his permission and you will avoid lots of fights.

4. Spending more time with friends
When you are in a very long-term relationship, you might get jealous of all of the parties and free time your friends (especially single ones) have. But, don’t allow the temptation of alone time to ruin your relationship. Don’t forget that you can spend time with your friends; you just need to discuss it with your partner and rearrange your schedule.

5. Putting no effort into your relationship
Once you have been together for a long time, you may feel so comfortable that you may stop putting effort into your relationship. While comfort is a great thing, it can be dangerous as well. No matter how long you’ve been together, you still have to put effort into your relationship to make it last.

6. Constant fights
When you are in a bad mood, it’s so easy to scream at your partner to let out your emotions, however, he could get hurt and it can lead to numerous fights. Don’t risk upsetting your partner, scream into a pillow if you are tempted to vent. It may sound funny, but it’s actually work. Never blame your sweetheart for problems that he didn’t cause. It’s one of the best ways to keep your relationship strong.

7. Taking your partner’s efforts for granted
Just because you can walk all over him, doesn’t mean you should do it. If he washes your clothes for you and makes you breakfast every single morning, let him know that his hard work is highly appreciated. Treat your partner with respect and don’t take his efforts for granted.

It can be hard to keep the relationship strong, especially if one of the partners put no effort into it. If you want your relationship to stay strong, make sure you don’t act on the aforementioned dangerous desires.

There’s nothing wrong with you, if you have these desires, but just don’t act on them and ensure your partner doesn’t act on them as well.

It is easy to lose spark when facing various challenges in life. Nowadays many people feel tired and exhausted due to stress, losing job or overload. If your partner is facing hard times, then you will have a great role to support them and help find the way out. If you really love your significant other, you should do your best to boost their confidence and motivate them when they feel down. 
Show your love and care for them to understand that they are not alone. You should be ready to deal with nervousness, because when we have problems we usually turn emotional and lose stability. 
Sometimes the way to your dreams can be long and complicated. You can find the goal unachievable, because of unexpected challenges and obstacles that arise along the journey. 
If your beloved doesn’t know what to do, where to begin or how to move forward, try to suggest them to start with small steps and actions. You can share your vision of the situation and suggest a list of small steps and people who can help them overcome tough times. 
If your partner’s things are not going well, try to provide an encouragement for them by offering a pep talk. You are the one who should remind them how wonderful and talented they are.
You can give the example of their past accomplishments. Try to persuade them in their originality and abilities to make their dreams come true. This strategy will help you boost your partner’s self-confidence and self-esteem. 
Try to determine the cause of your partner’s troubles. If it is possible, try to create a cozy atmosphere and find a suitable moment to talk to them and understand what is bothering them. When you know the reason, you can start on the emotional support instead of just criticizing and commenting that you see your beloved is changing in a bad way. 
It is very difficult to start doing something new and unknown, especially if you feel despondent and depressed during the hard times. When your partner achieves some results, you should show your happiness and appreciation.
Enjoyable rewards make them more enthusiastic and relentless. When they see that their efforts and actions make you happy and meet your common needs, they will get an extremely high desire and motivation to become better.
It is desirable not to blame your beloved with every little detail, because all your efforts to motivate them to be successful will be in vain. 
If you have given your partner an advice to do certain small steps to go through hard times, you should feel responsibility for your actions and try to notice and accentuate all the good things that result from their actions and attempts.
 You can find different positive moments and changes in their deeds. If they go in for sports, you can remind how strong and wonderful they look. 

Nowadays even strong and highly successful people can face problems and lose motivation. If you have a persistent desire to overcome all difficulties in your family life, you should be brave enough to face harsh realities of life and be a single whole despite of everything. Moreover, you should support your partner if necessary.
