I am following my American husband, and he is following me: why is this necessary

It started back in 2015, when we were vacationing in the Austrian Alps. While my husband was skiing, I walked in the mountains and forests. Yes, I walked so well that one day I got lost. Literally.

Wandering along the paths between snow-covered fir trees, photographing everything in a row (as usual), at some point I realized that I had already seen these suspiciously familiar Christmas trees somewhere, which means I was walking in circles. The situation for a person with well-developed topographic cretinism is downright awful.

There is not a soul around, and I am alone in the middle of the forest and snowdrifts. I even started to panic, for a moment already imagining how many days they would accidentally find my dank little body, but then changed my mind.

Thinking about it, I realized that if I walk in a circle, somewhere there must be a path that led me to it. Unfortunately, it began to snow. Carefully looking around, I went in the opposite direction, and, lo and behold, a few minutes later I found that ill-fated path hiding behind a snowdrift.

Still not believing that I got off so easily and wouldn't have to starve, I almost ran along it, and when I saw the town below and realized that I had left the “vicious circle”, I felt myself on top of the world! I am a winner! How little a person needs to be happy - just to wake up!

After that incident, my then-future husband and I decided to share access to our locations with each other (this is easily done in the basic Find My application on iPhones, I don’t know about other phones).

Now I can at any time find out exactly where my husband goes and whether he will come home soon. This is convenient: I can do some of my girly business or prepare a surprise for him without fear that he will return at the most inopportune moment.

And how do you feel about giving your loved one access to your location and at any time of the day or night to know where he is (in fact, not him, but only his phone, but - nevertheless)?
