Depends if I really already know the answer. Anyhow, if you don't trust them then there is no relationship anyway, for a good enduring relationship trust is a key component.

In this scenario the answer is unbeknown to you.

Exactly, if you don't believe them or trust them, what kind of a relationship is it anyways?

A bad one, I would believe.

It's still a tough one to answer, if my partner was a techie I'm sure they could fool the machine by faking galvanic skin reponses. If not a bit of a nerd them I guess I would go with the machine if seemed to fit the circumstances.
