I have always found trust to be an issue of deep complexity. On the one hand, one may be able to trust a person with ones heart, and that is a noble
thing to be able to say of them. On the other hand, I trust politicians to backstab and destroy everyone and everything, constantly.
Trust is not the be all and end all. If I can trust that a person will misinterpret my motivations for everything I do, just to give them an excuse
to loathe me, then what use is our association? If I can trust that a person will fail to trust me, then what is to be gained by continuing to know
There is a couple down the road who trust one another implicitly. The husband trusts the wife to screw most of his closest friends behind his back,
and the wife trusts that her husband will spend sixty percent of their household income on gambling. There is an awful lot of firm trust there.
I would say, that you should have been able to say what you said, and have your lady trust that you had the best intentions, and contrary to popular
understanding, that intentions are very much the critical factor in deciding the worth of an action. You see the good trust, the real trust between
couples, should be that they both trust one another enough that even when they go against the others wishes, they trust that their partner acts in
their best interests in all things, no matter whether the outcome or the method is palatable.
If you do not have that, then you might as well give it up.
