Trust in an established intimate relationship is an intricate balancing act.
For example, once a couple determines that it’s exclusive, both members stop fishing for potential suitors.
However, assuming that the couple is on the same page, you should be able to trust your spouse and not need to be constantly updated on whom they are talking to and spending time with.
Of course, elements such as previous relationship history, distance, and personality type will undoubtedly contribute to how much information each person desires to know.
The odd dichotomy about a mature, genuine relationship is that you should feel comfortable voicing any questions or concerns to your significant other. But, simultaneously, an unwritten aspect of the relationship contract is that implicit trust.
That’s a double-edged sword. You should be able to ask for details, yet you should have enough faith that you don’t need to know.
If your spouse is going to a holiday party, bar, or event which you are unable or unwilling to attend, you should be comfortable enough to count on their fidelity in your absence.
In the past, each of you has always felt empowered to go out individually without unjustified concern.
But lately, the general atmosphere around such outings has shifted.
Your spouse seems less open to providing details, and while you trust them, it doesn’t feel quite right.
How can you find out the truth without exposing your insecurities?
Hiring an infidelity private investigator might be your best solution to get the truth.
