Say you live on the east coast. Your S/O gets a great opportunity with his company but he has to transfer to the west coast for two years. You CANNOT go with him.

He will be visiting home as much as possible but this job is extremely demanding, so you only see him 2-3 times per year. Do you trust him to stay faithful during that time?

  • I guess I would have to trust him, but I think it would extemely hard to keep a relationship going like this, I would do whatever I could to just go with him. But if you can't then you have to trust him.

  • OP here- you can't go because of finances, family, you're afraid of earthquakes- whatever reason. It's hypothetical lol.

  • men can be faithful in the heart but not the body- at least from most i've talked to. i think it would depend on his income potential. If he made enough money and something went wrong, at least you wouldn't leave the relationship w/nothing. sorry- i followed my heart too much and now i'm without any financial backup whatsoever.i guess this is assuming he'd pay some bills on the east homefront while he's gone. if a man wants to cheat,location won't really matter.military families have these same questions.

  • Hypothetical or not, I wouldn't stay apart from my spouse. There's no reason in my mind why a wife wouldn't be with her husband, its where she belongs. And vice versa.

  • I know mine wouldn't stay faithful.

  • yes i would absolutely trust him. i have no doubt. it would suck being apart but if it's a great oppotunity i wouldn't let him pass it up. i know my husband is not into random sleeping around. at least not anymore.

  • I don't think I would be able to trust him that much myself. If I really loved him I would try but it would be really hard. Is there someway you could go with him or maybe come a little later.
