Will they cheat or will they stay faithful?

Sagittarius people, once in a relationship, are very loyal and devoted to their partner. But they start to get bored and try to look for someone who can give them what their current relationship couldn’t.

Before they go looking, they try to talk things out with their partner and what they think is missing from the relationship and how it can be fixed. However, if they feel like their partner is not going to change, they would rather end the relationship than to cheat.

So for the most part, don’t worry about being cheated on by a Sagittarius. But when they do cheat it’s in a moment of weakness, where they feel like their partner doesn’t care about them and aren’t worried about where they are and who they are with.

If they do cheat on their partner, they immediately own up to their mistake and are honest. They are sincere and are understanding if their partner wants to end things or wants to continue but with changes.

To make sure things don't get to that point, their partners need to keep communication on the line no matter what and to make sure they know they are loved and cared for. Before being harsh and coming to conclusions, make time to talk and let things out so there is an opportunity to come back from the troubles.

Being with a Sagittarius can be fun and exciting, and you might feel like things are going great. But keep in mind they will want some space and have something that they won’t feel bad leaving behind.

If they do want commitment, things will be great. But once they feel like you don’t care and aren’t wanting to mend the relationship, they start to get bored and look for someone else who will give them what they felt was missing between the two of you.
