There are a lot of people who seem to think it's okay to go through a mate's cell phone, email or social networking media. It seems to be the way people can figure out whether or not they can catch their mate in a lie, or to see what's going on in their lives when they don't talk to them about it. 12 Ways To Know FOR SURE Your Husband Is Happy In Your Marriage
