The foundation of any relationship is built on trust. When doubts about that trust begin to surface it doesn’t take long for the foundation to begin to crumble. If either you or your partner are beginning to have trust issues it is important that you act quickly to resolve those issues. The sooner that these issues are addressed, the sooner that you can begin to repair the damage that has been done.
If you have doubts about your partners faithfulness, or if your faithfulness is being called into question, it is important that these issues are dealt with quickly and professionally. Enlisting the assistance of a professional, unbiased polygraph examiner may be the quickest way to resolve these doubts.
A polygraph test will not completely resolve trust issues. Regardless of the results of the test, we strongly encourage you to seek the assistance of a competent relationship counselor. However, openness and honesty are necessary for counseling to be successful. A polygraph examination can provide basic truth so that all parties involved in the counseling can make appropriate decisions to begin rebuilding trust.
The polygraph is only suitable for questions regarding actions and activities. Questions about specific actions such as touching, kissing, intercourse, etc. are the most appropriate questions for a relationship polygraph. The length of time that has passed between the activities and the exam is not important. It is not uncommon for a person to correctly fail a polygraph even 25 years after the actions took place. Just as actions are appropriate for testing, issues that are not appropriate for testing are such things as thoughts, feelings, desires, etc. However, if those thoughts, such as fantasies, are accompanied by an action such as masturbation, then those issues could be testable.
Regardless of what your situation involves, if you or your partner are at the point of considering a polygraph then it is obvious that trust has already been damaged. Don’t let the damage continue to worsen. Act quickly to address the issues before irreparable damage is done.
