I think that if you are both making an effort into your relationship, that one would be less likely to cheat.

I think it's about being selective when choosing a partner. You obviously can't predict the future, but the best way to attempt that is to choose someone whose values don't just coincide with yours, but that he/she embodies values you admire, that you strive for--hopefully together. As long as the potential is there to manifest your values into reality, I'd say that's about as affair-proof as you can get.

Making a effort  to keep the spark going and talk open communication is the best

agree.

Quoting fraujones:

How to affair-proof your marriage? Don't cheat. You are responsible for your own fidelity and your spouse is responsible for his. This panel shares some great tips for keeping "the spark alive" but I don't think it should be termed "affair-proofing."

I agree.  Marry someone that you can trust.  Don't cheat.  Show your spouse how much you love him.

I like this.

Trust is a big way.  We have a saying in Islam that if a man and woman are alone together the 3rd is Satan.  I know some may not believe that but it makes sense to me.

I honestly don't think there is any way to make your marriage 100% affair proof.
