  • I don't think it is a must but if the couple agrees to it then yes. My husband and I do not, I do know his main password because he uses it for a lot. But we also don't not let each other look at our things. Facebook as well as email accounts get left up on the computer quite often.

  • Yes I think couples should....some may disagree but I know all of his passwords and he knows all of mine.

  • I agree with ILoveCade. DH and I have a lot of the same PWs, and we know each other's pin numbers, etc. It's just easier, because sometimes I need to him to be able to access something when I can't be right there and vice versa. I think if you don't have that trust, then maybe there are other underlying issues. We're very open, we have nothing to hide, and we both can open up a laptop to find the other's e-mail, CM or FB account up (well, he doesn't have a CM acct, but you know what I mean!).

  • i think thats all up to the couple, my husband and i don't have to know each others passwords. I only know his b/c i created his acounts and i showed him how to change his password he won't do it b/c if he forgets it all he has to do is ask me!

  • No my DH doesn't have my password and I don't have his, I wouldn't want him reading my personal emails between me and my best friends.

  • Depends on the couple. I know DH's passwords and he knows mine. There are times we need to get into each other's email accounts. We share a FB so thats a no brainer. We have nothing to hide, and trust each other completly. There is no "random checks" either. It is just easier this way. I don't have to call him for a password if I need access to something.

  • If you trust each other, yes. If there's a hesitation, then maybe there's something to hide. But it could be that one person just need to feel a sense of individuality and privacy. Some people have a fit if the other opens mail addressed to them. I think it should be discussed.
