And that happens only when your partner does a mistake but denies to accept out of ego, guilt, fear, and sometimes immense respect too. In a romantic relationship when two persons join together as a couple by an intimate bond, it is very common to expect ruptures regardless of love between them. Unlike people who openly communicate everything about each other, a few couples don't like to drag things to another level so that they expect such ripples to be vanished off gradually. So, is it a good thing or a bad thing in a relationship? Forget about the extremes of good and bad, these kinds of couples survive better in their relationships.
According to millennials and the Gen Z generation, this kind of holding back behavior to confess is considered as cowardness, manipulation, and being stuck up forcefully in a relationship.

This applies to both partners.
You won't be confident enough to accept a particular accusation in your relationship such as change of behavior, cheating, reduction of affection and attention when you indeed commit such acts in your relationship.
