Do you believe in your partner’s independence? (Context: It's about dating)

I think it's somewhat odd to interpret literally. Does it mean "do you think that your partner can have his/her own space or lifestyle that is independent from yours"? What does "believe in" and "independence" exactly mean in this context? I think the definitions found in dictionary are too literal for this context.
