Doesn’t mean he’s cheating necessarily but could mean there’s something in there he doesn’t want you to see

My question is, why do you want to look at his phone? I would never think of looking at my husband’s. I actually never thought of the need to. I have been married 26 years almost 27.

From experience, he is hiding something. But don’t just jump to conclusions. Ask him about it first.

Maybe he is watching porn and is embarrassed about it. Regardless I’m not hiding anything but I deserve privacy. Like my girl friends message me stuff that is between just us and is none of his business :woman_shrugging:

I like how people say just ask him… you can ask and I’m sure he’s going to admit to cheating. :roll_eyes:

People who have nothing to hide wouldn’t behave that way?. Even if it goes against their feelings about privacy they’d let you see there’s nothing to hide and then have a talk about it.

Just ask him. If you have to go thru someone’s phone then you already don’t trust him so.

Does he reach for your phone to look at it? Doesn’t matter how long you’ve been together or how many kids you have, everyone deserves a little privacy. It’s rude to reach for his phone.

No need to ask him. If he’s cheating he’s not going to admit to it anyway. Catch the phone when he walks off and it’s still on. If you don’t trust him then there must be a reason

After 16yrs and you have to do that for one shows you don’t trust him but also two he should have no reason to freak out. My husband and I have been together 21yrs and we don’t care. We answer each other’s phone calls and texts. Be honest with him instead of just grabbing his phone. Maybe it is just porn he doesn’t want you to see he has viewed or feels privacy is being violated… you never know until communication between you both happens.

I bet he is sexting someone and does not want you to see it OR he is getting nude pics

If you feel the need to look thru his phone yall have other issues going on.

Do you really think he would tell you if he was cheating anyways? Like going through it ALL the time or occasionally without permission isn’t right. If you have doubts about something ask him and see how he reacts

My husband and I both have locks on our phones because we have a 4 year old who loves to get into them, so she can access to snap pics but that’s it. However, I can never remember his password and he doesn’t know mine for the same reason- neither are numbers that the other would know. BUT I would unlock and let him go through my phone if he ever felt the need and I know he would do the same. Without having to do the whole “hold on let me do something real quick” (aka delete what they don’t want you seeing). If he’s fighting you over it that’s not a good sign

If someone picked up my phone with full on intentions of going through it, I’d be snatching it back too. Tf.

I would question that for sure

  1. The fact that you feel the need to go through his phone at all
  2. He would very much rather not have you look through his phone.
  3. he would seriously wrestle you?? Just so you don’t go through his phone?? Serious Red Flag
    There are more issues if you feel the need to go through his phone

I personally don’t think it’s right for you have to go through his phone. I personally keep my phone with a lock screen because I don’t want kids getting into my phone. I use to have sexy pictures of me that I had taken before I got with my current boyfriend (I have deleted them as far as I can find but that doesn’t mean anything) plus my phone is my personal space that I shouldn’t have to share. I don’t go through my boyfriend’s phone and he doesn’t need to go through mine. I also feel if my phone was unlocked my boyfriend probably be going through it to cause some kind of fight because every now and then he thinks I’m cheating on him even thou I’m home all day (I’m a stay home mom) I don’t have a vehicle.

He’s hiding something, That would make me think he was cheating.Id check when he’s asleep or something. For sure I’d want to know if I’m waisting my life on a cheater .

Well, it is his phone. What do you expect him to do?

Why are you grabbing his phone to look at what’s on it?

I mean has he ever given you a reason not to trust him? Cheated on you? Messaging other women? Flirting with other women? If he hasn’t given you any reasons not to trust him, why look at his phone? Everyone is entitled to their privacy…unless you don’t trust him

If I can’t trust my husband and feel the need to go through his phone I just wouldn’t want him. Trust is everything once you have trust issues the trust will never come back.

Well…. I think he’s reacting to how you’re doing it. Why are you grabbing anything to snoop instead of just talking to him . You should trust your partner :100: which it doesn’t sound like you do. Has he done something that makes you question him or is it your own insecurities. I have nothing to hide but I myself nor
My husband would just go grab each others shit without asking first. We have nothing to hide and if he asked I would have said yes and vs versa. If my husband did try some shit like that I absolutely would be ripping it right back out of his hand and giving him a

I don’t think there should be secrets in a relationship. I have no reason to look at my partners phone, but if i were to pick it up to hand it to him, I would not expect a reaction other than “thanks babe.” Him freaking out tells me one thing/he’s hiding something. It could be cheating but could also be some sort of surprise he has in store. In my experience, more often than not it’s that they’re doing something wrong…but there’s always a chance it’s something innocent. If he gets super defensive when approaching him about it, that’s an issue.

If your name is on cell phone acct, you can get the list of numbers text. Thats a start. Honestly if he wont let you see, hes up to no good. My ex done that to me all the time. I never asked to go thru his phone but he always made damn good & sure that I never had the chance. Lucky for me, I caught him lying and then listened to my gut. He was still having a relationship with his ex wife. The way your husband acted is a huge red flag.

By grabbing and looking at his phone, what were you hoping to find? Do you have reason to suspect he is cheating, hiding something, etc? Maybe he feels you are being disrespectful by just grabbing his phone. You are two grown adults who have build a life together, you should be able to have a conversation.

A relationship with out trust is like a car with no gas… you can stay in it, but it won’t take you anywhere…

Two issues… one, you don’t trust him, feeling the need to look ahows distrust, and number two, he has something to hide because people who have nothing to hide don’t hide things. It’s really that simple. If he had nothing to hide, he’d let you look to prove you wrong and then let you see you’re behavior is out of line.

I mean I have pictures on my phone that I’d rather my children or strangers not to see so it’s locked, but if my husband wanted to use it or see it He can, he knows my code.

He wrestles you for the phone? :thinking:

If y’all are on the same phone bill, just pull the calls and text! Simple, sounds as if there maybe something he is hiding.

If he’s going after it that aggressively he probably has something to hide. Or you’re just super annoying for touching his property. I can see both sides. He might just be really agitated you’re touching his stuff.

It comes down to why you felt the need to go thru it to begin with

He’s definitely hiding something but I wouldn’t go straight to cheating. My man acted the same way when I was trying to go thru his. It caused an argument and he said f it and let me go thru it… he was trying to plan a surprise for me and didn’t want me seeing.

You’re an adult acting like a teenager phone grabbing and stuffs. I have nothing to hide but I find it childish, disrespectful, and nasty to grab my phone off of me. Grow up. A guy who’s has been with you for 16 ain’t playing around. When does trust issues stops? I guess never. Be an example to your kids

Some of yall are absolutely ridiculous talking about you have no right to look at his phone. Wtf? Who even cares. We don’t go through each other’s phones but we both can if we want to. Just looking at your bus phone doesn’t make someone a bad person. If you’re in a relationship you don’t have any reason to be hiding you’re phone or whatever you’re doing on. If you’re hiding something on you’re phone it’s because you know you shouldn’t be doing it or that it would hurt your spouse or that you’re lying about something. And then yes she has every right to look at his phone because he’s lying to her and she wants to get the truth. What do you think she should just accept his lies and go on letting him make a fool of her? Yeah ok. If you think it’s OK to lock your phone to keep your partner out of it that’s a little bit ridiculous and a huge red flag. If it would make my husband feel better I would NEVER tell him he can’t look at my phone. Grow up.

I personally would maybe talk to him n tell him how u feel. I how ever been with my boyfriend n he has a password on his phone but I have never in the past 9months of us being together been on his phone he told me that I could anytime and he’d unlock it but I have no reason to. Tbh if there going to cheat there going to cheat u can not stop that. N ppl have very good ways hiding it. But maybe try n talk to him

I barely go on my phone bc of my partner, just don’t need it as much when I could be spending time with him instead​:smiling_face_with_three_hearts: but if he needs to use it, it’s right there​:woman_shrugging::100:

My phone and my tablet lay on the table all the time. My wife has the password for both. She’s welcome to pick up either one at any time. When I’m driving, I hand her my phone if I get a call or a message. Being a guy, he’s hiding something. You are not wrong.
