In all relationships really it is vital to have trust. Without trust a relationship can quickly fall apart. So many people take this for granted and betray their partner/spouse's trust. And often once that trust is betrayed it is very hard to get back.

I think you are right, my friend. Because if there is no trust the relationship always at stake, jealousy and argument always... This trust must be hold both the two spouse because if only one have trust the relationship still not materialize...

Yeah having trust in a relationship will keep the relationship strong. It's hard to be happy for both partners when there is a lack of trust. Not trusting one another creates a lot of problems.

The foundation of most good relationships is trust. If you cannot trust your partner, then the relationship is certainly not going to run very profound. It takes time to build trust, particularly when one or both parties have been hurt. A tender, lasting relationship is one that is made on a solid foundation of trust. Trusting each other in a relationship means feeling confident enough passionately to be able to let your guard down and be your unpretentious self.

I agree that trust is very important. Having trust is essential to a successful relationship. We see all to often relationships that end because a person can not trust the other individual. A good relationship is built on trust and it is important to maintain it.

I think it takes time to build real trust and that can only be gained through honesty. When you think about it, if a relationship was totally honest there could not be betrayal. So how could the other person say but I trusted you when all along you have been honest? We can have honesty but there is never a guarantee a relationship will be lasting.

I agree with you. It does take time to build trust. A couple being honest with one another is a very big part of that. It will go along way in helping them maintain their relationship. Yeah it takes a lot to have a happy, successful, and long lasting relationship. It doesn't just happen overnight. There is a lot of effort involved.

For you to be able to trust you partner, you must trust yourself first. Learn how to have a positive mind when it comes to your relationship, try to see things in a much bigger picture. Each and every moment you are together is an opportunity to grow, and part of growing is fully trusting each other.

Yeah I agree with you it's important for couples to grow together. This will strengthen their relationship and draw them together instead of apart lack a lack of trust would. We've got to be confident in our relationship and with our partner.

I have a hard time trusting people. Once they have done something for me not to trust them i usually run the other way and get away from them. My boyfriend i have now has lost my trust a couple time and im still with him but its a relationship and sometimes for relationships you have to work together and working together might be hard but its life and you have to have trust in relationships to grow and make your relationship last. Trust is a big issue for me but i try everyday to have trust in my boyfriend but at times it can be hard when i see him on his phoen and i really want to know who he is always talking to and texting and what not. I really hate that and feel soemtimes he may not like me or something because of what he has done in the past.

Yeah it can definitely be hard to trust individuals who have betrayed our trust. We are often thinking about the next time that they will do this to us again. I hope that your boyfriend tries his best to build your trust. As trust is very important. I'm glad to hear that you are striving to work things out even though he has lost your trust before. I hope that your boyfriend is proving himself faithful to you. Because it takes a lot to stay with someone who has been unfaithful.
