We have one profile for our computer, my Facebook is always logged in and so is my email.  He doesn't have a Facebook and I know his email password.  On my iPad my email and Facebook are always logged on.  So basically my husband knows that I have nothing to hide, lol and he doesn't use his email for much. We both pretty much use the same variations for passwords too so it wouldn't be hard to figure out.

Lol right!?  Idk, I don't demand openness but secretiveness causes marital problems in my opinion.  

Quoting caro100:

No. he knows mine.  If he wants to see what's going on with me, as his wife, he's entitled.  I don't think there should be any right to privacy when you are married.  I know his as well.

Before a recent event, I would have said, "No, everyone needs some privacy." A family member, at age 30 suffered a near fatal cerebral hemorrage. He is a techie, and has several computers and tablets. Unfortunately, his wife did not have a password to any of the devices. After weeks of searching, she discovered he paid all their family bills online via his work computer. Because he worked in a high security job, it took several more weeks and a court order for her to have access to find out what had been paid, and the account numbers and history. This was extremely stressful for her to have to deal with worrying about paying bills while her husband almost died, and went through three brain surgeries. Put the passwords in a sealed envelope, if you will, but put them somewhere where your spouse/partner/next-of-kin can get to them, along with a list of account numbers. It can save a world of stress, pain and financial problems. Lesson? No matter how young you are, TAKE the disability insurance from your employer, and run your financial life so someone else can step in immediately if you are disabled or die.

I have a list of ALL passwords for all our bill paying, etc., in case i die than he can get onto any and all banking and bill paying websites to start paying the bills himself or inform companies of my passing or cancel memberships or close email accounts out, etc.  There should be NO secrets in a relationship.
