Do you open mail addressed to your husband? (or S/O but mainly husbands.)

I take care of the bills anyway and I check the mail daily. Even when he checks it, he will just hand it all to me.

A new acquaintance was very confused that I do this. I guess her husband opens mail addressed to him and then hands her the bills...

I will leave b-day cards alone but half the time I will tell him he has a card and he will ask what it says!

  • Same here, I always open and sort the mail.

  • Yes, for the most part. If it's a known bill I open it and process it. If it looks like personal correspondence, I leave it for him to open.

  • Yes, I open all of the mail unless it's a card for him or something that's from his parents.

  • I open everything... Most of the bills we do paperless anyway but even then mostly everything is in his name but goes to my email address. I do all of the billing payments and banking so him opening it would just get in my way!

  • I don't open his mail, and he don't open mine. If he wants me to see something he'll show me and vise versa.

  • Yes I usually open all the mail, unless its personal.

  • Who ever gets the mail opens it all, nothing comes in our mail that would be super "personal". I don't open his packages, but not b/c he would care, I just don't care what's in them. (usually DVDs and Dallas Cowboys stuff)

  • I either open all the mail of my husband does. Whoever gets it first.

  • I don't open his and he doesn't open mine.That's just the way we are.If it's addressed to both of us he usually gives it to me to open.
