You must honor your partner and your relationship no matter the situation. Everyone should know how much you value your relationship and must respect your partner and relationship as much as you do.
1. This should be present in your actions: When you are around others you acknowledge your partner, and introduce them in social situations. If you are alone, and are approached by another interested party, you make it clear that you are in a relationship, if the subject arises.
2. This should be present in the way you speak: You want to always be mindful of the picture you paint of your partner. I am a firm believe in keeping your relationship sacred (not secret).
