  • I think you can trust them on certain topics, like you trust them not to cheat but you don't necessarily trust that they won't hide spending from you etc. I'm sure there are several levels of trust.

  • hmmm...well with my DH I trust him with my life and know he wouldn't cheat, but sometimes I think he fakes not feeling well. I think that falls under what orionsgirl was saying. He likes to "pull my chain" a bunch.

  • It depends on what you mean by what they say. Are you saying can you trust a liar? I don't think so. How can you trust someone who can't speak honesty to perform honestly? I think in the beginning you might trust them not to do certain things but soon not being able to trust their word would cross over into not being able to trust their actions. I think there are certain levels of trust but to reach total trust you need to be able to trust that they won't lie to you and they would just be honest. I think the two go hand in hand.

  • No, not really, if you don't trust what they say, then how can you trust them?
