3 Reasons Why You Should Not Look Through Your Partner’s Phone

Your partner went to the bathroom, leaving his phone in the bedroom. Suddenly, you noticed his phone starts beeping and though you did not suspect your partner's been cheating on you,  you still  feel the urge to look through his phone.

You know you have at least 10-20 minutes to check his emails and text messages. You know it's not the right thing to do, but you still continue doing it. It's like finding a diary with a TOP SECRET in it. So the question is, Is it ever OK to look at your partner's phone?

Trust is an essential part of  any loving relationship, and people still need a certain amount of privacy even if they are already in a relationship. Without trust, it will never be called a productive one. So if you truly value your relationship, checking through your partner's phone without permission is probably not a good idea.

Here are 3 reasons why you should not look your partner's phone:

1. You are breaking his trust in you. Your partner trust you enough by leaving his phone behind and never thought of you being suspicious. Going through his stuffs is one of the worst things you can do in your relationship. Even just by looking through his phone secretly already breaks his trust in you.

2. You are heading your relationship in the wrong direction. When you start breaking his trust, that's when the time you are giving your relationship in the wrong direction. Being too suspicious even your partner is being  faithful is a total monster! Trust is a foundation of a loving and successful relationship. If they find out you've been secretly checking their phone, they may not be able to trust you either.

3. Curiosity doesn't help. You might be tempted to go through his phone to check if he's seeing someone else, even if there is no reason to be suspicious about anything. People want their privacy for different reasons, and if you are his partner, you should respect that. You wouldn't want them to do that to you either, right?

Invading your partner's privacy is worse than any common arguments, it's like cheating their trust and more harm than good. There are certain things that should be kept private. So instead of trying to look through his phone, try to be honest with your feelings and confront him with anything. Nothing in life is more important than the ability to communicate effectively with your partner. So next time you want to snoop your partner's phone, ask yourself if it's really worth it.
