Dear Writer, thank you for writing in. Whether or not you think you are over-possessive, the important point here is that you are not able to trust your husband. To feel like your trust was broken can really hurt. So the important matter is, what do you think is going on?
Just to clarify, do you normally make a habit of checking your husband's phone? Although you said that after your father in law's demise you came across these messages, had any incident like this occurred before as well that made you question your trust and check his phone? Are you aware of who this other person or is their identity unknown to you?
Clearly your husband doesn't seem to trust that you will respect his privacy so he's deleting call logs and changing his lock pattern.
I understand that you miss the togetherness in your marriage but this incident and the lack of trust is driving you two apart. I think you are perhaps scared to trust and are insecure that you will get hurt all over again if your husband repeats this behaviour. I completely understand your fears and it's natural to want to protect yourself from getting hurt. So ask yourself what his reason might be to exchange messages like this or do you think you misread the situation? What you also need to ask yourself is whether you can trust him again?
