Do You Think That Spouses Should Share Their Secret Passwords?

Poor Reese Witherspoon. This is like the gazillionth time that I have heard that a man has cheated on his wife and stupidly left a trace of it on his e-mail, blackberry or on a text message on his cell. If you are going to cheat, for the love of humanity, don't let there be hard evidence of it lying around.

Since we all know that trust is essential in a successful relationship, do you think that spouses and partners should have access to each other's private accounts? It would be the kind of thing where you would only look if you had reason to believe they were breaking your trust. What do you think?

I know my husband's because he doesn't do computers, so I check his email for him whenever he asks me to. He doesn't know mine because he doesn't care. If he asked for it because he wanted to snoop on me, I'd be a little put off. But, I wouldn't hesitate to give it to him if I needed him to check my email for me or whatever. Does that make sense? I trust him and he trusts me, so we don't snoop. But, neither of us try to hide anything.

my husband and i know each other's passwords but we agreed never to go into each other's accounts without permission. we don't open each other's mail unless asked either. i think you can be in a committed relationship without losing your privacy. it's a respect issue, really.

If you trust eachother, there is no problem with either sharing it or not sharing it. My BF knows my password and I know his, it just happened because he needed some cash and didnt want to go out so he gave me his card and his password and I got him the money. He knows mine for the same reason LOL... sometimes we get lazy :) I have more money than he does anyway, so he doesnt mind me knowing hehehe and he knows everything about me too.

I don't hav emy husbands and he doesn't have mine, but just beacuse I never thought about it. I guess we trust each other that much not to even worry about it. I think if you wanted it - the other party should be willing to give it though.

Just because you have the password doesn't mean you use it and I agree that not sharing it when asked is a definate sign that something is wrong. If you have nothing to hide then there's no reason not to tell. Then again, you have to ask yourself why are you being asked for it - does the other person have something to hide and wants to check you out...... Best to just keep everything in your pents and find another hobby.

I trust my husband enough that I've never asked for his password. He's never asked for mine either.

I agree with Layla. There shouldn't be any reason to hide anything. If my husband somehow refused to give me a password to an account, I would immediately go snooping at the first chance.

I think if you are in a committed relationship then you shouldn't be hiding anything.
