a spouse who profeses devotion. and also to their spouse in

Resolved Question:

a spouse who profeses devotion. and also to their spouse in front of other people.

but not all actions match what they claim about their devotion (not like cheating or anything huge)

but like they say they would never email another person of the opposite sex. but they do, do it! (even though it was purely friendship emails)

why would they be so expressive about their devotion and express it in front of other people but it doesnt always match up.

It is possible that saying he is devoted is much easier than actually living up to that statement. Often times the way someone behaves each and every day is harder to maintain than verbalizing such devotion. What should happen if committed to each other is to decide what the rules are and to stick by them. Anything less is disrespectful. If you feel strongly about communicating with other women and he has agreed that this is disrespectful then he should follow that because you have decided as a couple that this is important. If you feel that friendship emails cross a line then this is something he should respect. Regardless of the behavior it is much harder to adhere to your wishes over the long term than to say them to others.
