In brief: Debatable

There are many things one does to maintain monogamy.
Whether one masturbating would steer one to maintain a single relationship would be debatable. If ones sex urge and desire is vanquished simply by a session of masturbation to prevent an affair or other relations with another outside of a single relationship would be possible but not probable in my opinion.

In brief: Possibly

For some couples.
Masturbation is better than ruining an otherwise satisfactory union. However, you may benefit from couples' counseling.
