Loyalty is the faithfulness or extreme devotion to some person, country, group or cause that you advocate. When you are firm and faithful in your feeling towards something or someone, you are considered loyal. Loyalty is a virtue which lays the foundation of trust and understanding in relationships. Loyalty is akin to fidelity in relationships. You need to be loyal to your partner and stay devoted to him or her. A relationship can persist for long only if both the partners are mutually loyal and devoted to each other. Fidelity is the litmus test for a true relationship. A successful relationship stands the test of time and fidelity.
Hubert H. Humphrey had remarked, “Anyone who thinks that the vice-president can take a position independent of the president of his administration simply has no knowledge of politics or government. You are his choice in a political marriage, and he expects your absolute loyalty.” A person is born with feelings of envy and hate. If he gives way to them, they will lead him to violence and crime, and any sense of loyalty and good faith will be abandoned.
