Okay, I see what you're asking here. Despite our trust in our partner, we can still have icky feelings about what others may do and to answer truthfully, yes. There's one person in particular who's a very close family member and has on multiple occasions throughout the years, tried getting very chummy with my partner. I'm not talking a little hug either! I'm talking serious crap! Thankfully, my partner was uncomfortable enough to say something & then ignore her big time so she'd get the impression that her ploys were not working. She wanted to hurt me, not have him. That's what sucks the most!
So no, I don't trust this one person around him even though I know he'd bolt out of any room she appears in. But say he was unconscious and she thought I'd be showing up any second, I cannot imagine! But if he's conscious, it ain't gonna happen so that always helps me not to worry when she is around.
It really makes me sad to hear of anybody crossing that line with someone's partner because I've seen the devastation it causes & dear God, I never want to be a part of the pain that mess causes. It's worth it to work hard to keep a distance in cases where people could be hurt like this.
