Where Do You Stand? We-Mail

I'm sure you've all heard of we-mail by now, but if you're unfamiliar with the term, it's simply a shared email address couples use in lieu of individual ones. While the idea is kind of cute, it makes it almost impossible to have a confidential conversation with someone besides your significant other. Sure, it's great for making plans, paying bills, and coordinating work events, but I'd take privacy over convenience any day of the week.

We-mail seems to be catching on fast, so tell me, where do you stand on sharing an email address with your significant other?

I boycott we-mail. Although all my emails goes to 2 blackberries. I have multiple email address for different purpose. For example, professional organization will be with an alias of my first and last name. Pet society, I have a cutesy pet name of my first pet. Friends on facebook, a different email and work email is for work purpose and emergence only! You get the idea, right, no need for me to continue?

My husband and I each have our individual email accounts and a joint one for invites/events. We do share passwords in case one of us can't immediately access our account when needed. We don't have anything hide between the two of us, anyway.

I think it's kind of stupid, but I do know a few married couples that do have joint e-mail/myspace/facebook accounts. My husband and I each have our own, but he does check mine when I'm not around. I don't have anything to hide from him, but when he does this it feels like he's expecting to find something... and yeah, it's especially annoying when I walk into the room and find him pouring over a string of confidential e-mails from work, or a personal conversation with my girl friends. It seems like if couples do this voluntarily, they must feel like they have to keep tabs on each other at all times and be aware of every incoming/outgoing communication.

Co-dependency. I like my privacy. I wouldn't share an email address with my husband.

I think this is a terrible idea! There are all sorts of applications that will allow you to share and sync events without having access you one anothers personal accounts. This is just a cheap excuse to outright spy.

No.Incidentally, I know married couples that do this. While I think it's fine for them, it's certainly not for us.

This reminds me of people who have joint facebook or myspace accounts - makes me want to puke. I can see it for shared bills or events, but keep your own accounts on the side, too!

Hmm, I don't really think there is a problem with individual email accounts. But I do agree it would be very handy for planning big events like weddings or other parties and such.

^Kind of like a bank account. No matter what, my own bank account, no one else will ever have unrestricted access to. I'll leave my password in my will, but that's it -_-.

I think it's okay to have a joint email as long as you have your own individual email addressses as well.

I think it is very lame. But what is worse than that is when people assume that the address of one person is sufficient to email to reach both people. There are several people on my inlaws side of the family that have me (my personal email address) in their address book as "Me and My Husband". We have separate email addresses! If you only send something to me, I don't assume you intended to send ot to him or vice versa. Plus my email address is clearly mine and not joint. It is my first initial and last name - my husband and I do not have the same last name.

I have never heard of this before! I definitely don't like the idea. It seems silly and lame.. .

Good lord, whatever happened to privacy and individuality? I may be old school, but I think too much "communication" and "sharing" is stifing...voice mail, e-mail, texting, now we-mail... can't people do anything by themselves anymore?I knew someone whose teenage daughter was addicted to her phone. As a joke, some friend of her's took it, and she literally had a panic attack, short of breath, rapid heart rate, etc, plus she was sobbing her head off, like someone had died. UGGGHH!
