Our expert says:
Its remarkable how many folks who actually are cheating, accuse their partner of "having trust issues".
Maybe some entirely innocent people just choose, Lord knows why, to behave in a highly suspicious manner about their cellphones. But not many.
He is demanding the right to behave exactly as a cheater would, but that you must trust him anyway. Yet it would presumably be really easy for him to prove that nothing is going on, by offering you easy and assisted access to his phone.
This odd behaviour seems to be around texting, and not speaking, where at least you would hear his side of any conversation.
Stop apologisting, immediately. But stop reacting so obviously every time he does this. Maybe he's just chatting more innocently than it looks, and just getting more secretive about it in response to your obvious concern about it. But I somehow doubt it.
How would he react if you behaved in exactly the same way, with your own phone ?
maria's question is a wise one - is this recent behaviour ( more suspicious ) or has he always been like this ( maybe just excessively secretive by nature > ) does he behave just as secretively about anything else, or just his texting ?
Marriage counselling would probably be a good idea, advantageous for both of you.
I think Shelley bends over a bit far backwards to defend this degree of "privacy". Which may speak more about Shelley's relationships than yours.
