Having been on the receiving end of said behavior serves as all the deterrent I need. I don't ever want to have a role in somebody else feeling that way. The bigger trouble for me is finding partners who feel similarly. Most people seem okay being with "cheaters" and I think that sort can be toxic to the entire system. I like knowing my partner's other partners and spending time with them. But, this is the exception.
Temptation still happens. I really have to have a head/heart conversation with myself when it does to keep from making a poor choice. It takes effort and vigilance. And practice.
