Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger Pics Using a BlackBerry at Cannes

Do You Let Your Significant Other Read Your Texts and Emails?

Cute couple alert! Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger were caught at Cannes both peeping her BlackBerry with rapt interest. These two are used to sharing gadgets when they're dressed to the nines — last year it was with a Flip camera — and seeing them read a text or an email together reminds me not only of how much I like them together, but how often I share my texts and emails with my boyfriend.

I have to say, I'm all for a relationship with no secrets, and we are a close, but we don't really read each other's texts and emails. (Maybe our messages are just not that interesting!) I may forward the occasional thing that comes in, but in general, I keep my eyes on my own screen, and think it's rude (tempting as it is) to peek at his texts when he's reading them.

I know many couples read each other's texts often though, sometimes for them — do you?

We're kind of private people but I doubt either of us would mind if the other read messages/emails. We don't grab each others phones because that would be rude !! If his phone goes off and it's in the dock in he car then he'll ask me to read it out. I won't grab it though! I'm sure he could guess my passwords if he wanted to and he knows most of them! I wouldn't care if he looked, nothing to hide!

My husband and I read each other's text messages a lot.. whoever is closest to the ringing phone, grabs it. It's also handy when one of us is taking a nap, so we can decide if it's worth waking the other person up. We are in an open relationship, so there's not really anything like cheating for us. We also both believe in not saying mean things about other people in messages (or ideally, ever), because there's always a risk of people finding out, or seeing things out of context etc. Nothing to hide there either. We've never read each other's emails I think..there's simply no need to. If one of us gets a message we both need to see that isn't already addressed to us both, we'll forward it. I think if anyone looked at my inbox, it would mostly consist of replies from the sugar websites :P Not the most exciting thing to anyone but me, eh?

Sometimes I'll be closer to my boyfriend's phone, so he'll ask me to get it. And sometimes one of us will get something funny or weird or whatever and show it to the other (which is what the picture of Diane and Josh looks like). But generally I think looking at someone's phone without asking is snooping.

My boyfriend and I have no problem with texts. If he's closer to my phone when it goes off, he asks if he can reply to it... which I have no problem with. I make sure not to snoop into his texts... I'll ask who it was if he gets one... but I'm not particularly interested in the details. I trust him, so no need to get so crazy worked up! :D

HELL NO! My ex used to grab my phone from me when it buzzed to try and read my texts before I could... it was one of the main habits that killed our relationship. I didn't have anything to hide, it just made me mental that he could be so brazenly disrespectful... Snooping is sleazy enough as it is when it's behind your back!
