In a healthy relationship, suspicion, jealousy, and deception aren't needed because partners trust one another and behave in trustworthy ways. Both partners understand their shared ground rules and willingly stay within them because they believe their relationship is worth preserving.
A healthy relationship does involve curiosity and questioning. Partners who love one another take joy in discovering new things about one another, even if they've been together for decades. Learning new things about one another -- being a "relationship detective" -- is part of an ongoing process of accepting and appreciating another person.
