Trusting your partner is a key relationship foundation; like communication, attraction and each preferring different places in the big spoon/little spoon position. That said, there's no judgment from me if you’re not the trusting type. People are complicated and so are relationships. For me, personally, unequivocally trusting my partner is comforting; like soft, freshly laundered towels or a hot breakfast or Connie Britton’s entire existence. My partner and I have been together for more than ten years, so we’ve had some time to work on the things all grown-ass couples do to build trust in our relationship.
During that time, my partner has forgiven me for that brief Zac Efron obsession I had in 2009, as well as the super-embarrassing display I made at the NKOTBSB reunion tour in 2011. I, on the other hand, have chosen to look past, um, nothing that’s really comparable to either of these awkward truths. All joking aside, no matter how long a particular couple has been together or how strong their relationship may seem or feel or even be; a grown-ass couple knows that trust takes continuous work and communication. There are things that two partners can do regularly, to ensure that the trust they've built or naturally experience, continues to be a staple of their relationship.
