TRUST is a very important factor for all relationships. When trust is broken, it is the end of the relationship. Lack of trust leads to suspicion, suspicion generates anger, anger causes enmity and enmity may result in separation. A telephone operator told me that one day she received a phone call. She answered, "Public Utilities Board." There was silence. She repeated, "PUB." There was still no answer. When she was going to cut off the line, she Heard a lady's voice, "Oh, so this is PUB.Sorry, I got the number from my Husband's pocket but I do not know whose number it is." Without mutual trust, just imagine what will happen to the couple if the telephone operator answered with just "hello" instead of "PUB".

i am in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend for 9 months now.and trust keeps our relationship alive. trust embraces honestly and loyalty all together. and in long distance relationships like ours, these three are necessary to keep the relationship alive.

true, and it is hard to regain trust, some people count years even decades just to gain 99% trust. how complicated this life, isn't it?

But if this woman trusted her husband, she would never have searched his pockets and found the number in the first place... If she found the number accidentally, like while searching pockets before doing laundry, she would not even think of calling the number is she has trust in her husband. Luckily for the couple this was legitimate, but if someone did that to me, I would be angry.

I totally understand where that woman was coming from. my husband left me and our two kids for someone else. he was acting silly and bring home numbers on his phone, and so i decided to get to the bottom of it and find out what was going on. He wouldn't tell me, so i had to ease my mind. and i thought "heyy, if its nothing, then i'll let it go" but it wasn't nothing... he was a cheater

Misunerstanding may break relation between two people. There must be trust in each other. Those who trust each other can maintain the relation.

You`re right.I`m involved in a long distance relationship,and it`s based on trust.I think that without trust a relationship couldn`t survive.So if you can trust the one above you,this means you should search for another person .trust is elementary in a relationship

Trust is the most essential element in a relationship ever.Love and trust go hand in hand for me.Since I had a boyfriend over net my friends used to ask me how I could trust someone over net.I used to say I love him so I trust him and I trust him so I love him.If ever he feels the need to cheat on me then it will only be because I deserve it,maybe because I couldn't be a good girlfriend.And even if he was doing timepass with me I would be glad that he found me worth of doing timepass with,atleast. I trusted him more than anything in this world and I still do!

Trust is a big issue with me. I grew up in abusive foster care and learned quickly that people are out for number one and that I was not number one on anyones list. When someone has my trust it is worth more than gold to me and I would likely die before destroying that trust because I know that if someone breaks my trust in them I likely have lost a friend. And I think a lot of people are like that but just wouldn't admit it. If you think about it, if someone breaks your trust once why would they not do it again and again.

I agree that trust is one of the most important factors in all relationships. Some people don't trust even when there is no reason for it, they consider all people untrustworthy, and that will destroy a relationship just as quickly too. I've had friends that cheated on their wives, and even though their wives were not cheating on them, they distrusted their wives. (I was friend of the wives, and they were not doing anything wrong or inappropriate.) The men saw everything through their own cheating eyes, and (I think) that they figured if they were cheating their spouses therefore must be too. Needless to say, their marriages didn't survive. If everyone would be true to their vows, this stuff wouldn't happen. Without trust, there is nothing. Good post missmary!

From my point of view trust is accompanied by communication to avoid conflict. Communication is the portal to trust without proper communication there is no trust and the conflict arises.

really, this is a usual sentences for me nowdays... i "ve seen so many of couples, who are in love altogether, but they are unable to have a mutual bond of trust in them, just they are always seeking for a weaker points of one another...i do'nt know why, but this not the way to b fell in love with each one, if u r not having trust in each other..! trust is the vital partof every relation may be you are a girl or boy... trust is important ion every aspect of life as we are humans , and we trust the persons so easily, that we can't even imagine of it..!

No medicine has been manufactured so far that can cure the disease of suspicion. Even if a clash has been averted this time, she would land her in troubled waters any time, if she does not change her ways. Irrespective of the fact whether a separation takes place or not between the couple, this woman can never lead a happy married life.

I could not agree with you more. Trust is a very important part of any relationship but I do believe that if it is broken there are ways to earn it back under certain circumstances.
