Should Couples Know Each Other’s Passwords?
This is the question rocking my marriage right now.
My husband doesn’t care about his passwords; in fact, I knew them all before we got married. His phone has never had a password, and he sometimes tells me to help him send an email, upload pictures on Facebook, and do online transactions from his bank accounts, so he gave me his passwords without blinking.
I, on the other hand have a problem doing that, we have been married for over a year, he doesn’t know my passwords, I have never told him and he had never asked until recently.
His data plan had expired and he wanted to send an instant message to someone, my phone was on the couch in the sitting room, and I was in the kitchen. He came to the kitchen holding my phone and said, “Honey, what is your password?” I took the phone and I entered the password myself.
He went away, but came back some minutes after and said, “What are your passwords?” That was the beginning of a conflict that we have not been able to resolve till date.
Am I having an affair that I am hiding? Absolutely not!
Do I think he wants to go snooping around my emails and stuff? No!
I just believe I am entitled to some privacy, and if he likes, he can change all his passwords and keep them from me to be even, I really don’t mind. He doesn’t believe there should be any such privacy in marriage, I disagree, and I know I am not the only woman in this.
