What is the Difference between “Faithful” and “Fateful”?

Tamuno Reuben

The word “faithful” is an adjective. It means “loyal”; “firm and not changing in your friendship with or support for a person or an organisation, or in your belief in your principles”. “Faithful” is majorly attributed to humans or deities.

“Fateful”, on the other hand, means "having an important and usually negative effect on the future." “Fateful” is an adjective and it is always used before a noun.
