SPB.N NEWS – Online Desk: Question: We have been married for 22 years and have two children, aged 18 and 12. My wife keeps her phone password protected since last 4 years. I am extremely disturbed and keep on wondering why she is behaving like this? Kindly advise me on how to deal with this situation. – By Anonymous

Answer by Dr Parul Tank: Often couples keep a degree of space amongst them for various reasons. It may be worth introspecting why your wife is keeping the phone password protected. Many times we give opinions or pass judgment on another person’s behaviour. This can hurt people and they start hiding their feelings or what they are doing. This may be happening with your wife. It may be useful having a conversation with her to let her know how you feel about this situation and listen to what she has to say. Trust issues may have come up between you and they may need to be explored to reach a solution.
