First of all, there needs to be a distinction between trust and transparency. Transparency is crucial for any kind of a healthy relationship, especially after the discovery of infidelity. Transparency means that in a healthy relationship there shouldn’t be any secrets, so whatever you want to see in terms of what I’m doing on my phone, places I’m going to, etc., there shouldn’t be any hidden information about that. This is especially true after the discovery of infidelity, because if you’re the betrayed partner, the last thing you want to worry about is where the unfaithful partner is, and are they going to the third party, are they doing something that they’re not supposed to, etc.
