Is this really even necessary? What kind of women are you guys dating?

This whole thread has gone above and beyond where te original question stemmed from.
Despite having been together for 2 years and continuing, I don't think your relationship is mature enough yet.
It all comes down to this:
Trust is a huge part of a "serious" relationship. The fact that that there is a need
for you to feel protected from your partner means that you don't trust her fully yet; maybe to a degree, but not necessarily life and property yet. (And that's OK, varying relationships require varying times to grow)
That being said, she might be hurt with your lack of trust within the relationship.
