Often when people start worrying that a partner is cheating on them, they are told that they’re being paranoid, that they are just being jealous, or crazy, or clingy, and it’s their concerns that are endangering the relationship, not infidelity. And, sometimes, that’s absolutely true. Relationships have to be built on trust, and if you’re constantly obsessing about your partner cheating, then you’re not allowing that trust to happen. The only way that relationships can last in the long term is if we let our partners have the independence that everyone deserves.
