My hubby and I were at the drive through window at the bank. When he was finished with his transaction he handed me his wallet to put things back. THis is really the only time I touch his wallet. But it got me to thinking. how many people are comfortable rifling through anothers wallet? What would be your good reason for doing so?

Oh, my wife digs through my wallet all the time looking for girl's phone numbers and such. You know, or jewelry receipts. Fortunately, I hide all of those things on the headboard of my bed. She never thinks to look there. Just kidding. :)

I would go through my husband's wallet. Neither one of us should have anything to hide so I honestly do not see a problem with it. I would not just go through because I felt like it though.

I always handle my husband's wallet, I would open it and put or get money whenever it is needed. When he is driving, I am the one who will open his wallet to get money for the parking and stuffs like that. I think that is the ideal scenerio for a couple, that everything is shared and that the husband (or wife) has nothing to hide. My husband would go through my things too if he needed something and I am still asleep. I don't really mind. What's mine is his and what's his is mine

I don't touch my husbands wallet. I know a few that does but I don't. Although my husband is always getting in my purse a few times a month for one reason or another. He has always done that. My sister in law says she gets into her husbands to get money..sometimes without him knowing it. I just don't feel right trifling through someone else's things.

Hello ersmommy. I don't use a wallet. I usually put some money in my pocket when I need to go shopping alone. Usually it is my wife who keeps the money in her purse. When I need to use some money, she either gives me the money or asks me to take it myself out of her purse. But I never touch others' wallet or purse. Take care.

I only ever go through someones purse or wallet when it is requested of me. Like if that person is driving and they want me to look for something. Otherwise i leave it alone.

We don't have any issues about snooping each others wallet. Because we know that we don't have anything to hide. Hubby leaves his wallet with me when he goes to work because he only carries enough money to spend on food , snack and money for transportation. I don't mind too if hubby snoops around with my wallet because what he can see there are Social security card, my company ids, pictures , some receipts and money. I never heard him asked me saying "What's this?" because it was not in his nature to be suspicious on me because we trust each other. In any relationship trust, honesty and love should abound you both. We don't have secrets to hide on our wallet because both of us carry photos of us, not unless we have kids of our own, we will add that to our wallet.

Only if my husband ask me to. He does the same. He doesn't touch my wallet unless i ask him to. It's usually when we ordered in some pizza or chinese for dinner. If he's short of cash he ask for some cash from me and so I tell him to check my wallet. Problem is...he sometimes forget to pay me back. LOL

My husband goes into my wallet almost daily right now because he still hasn't gotten his new debit card, so he has to use mine and I force him to put it back so that I don't end up in line somewhere to buy something and not have it. That's happened a few too many times now! I don't remember ever having a real need to go into his wallet, but it wouldn't matter to me if I had to. The guy I was with before my husband was a cheater. Once or twice I went into his wallet and found phone numbers for other girls. Well this got me a little paranoid, so when I was first with hubby I'd go through his wallet almost weekly looking for numbers. I haven't done that in a long time, but I still occasionally go through to see if there's anything interesting in there... sometimes he likes to hide money and not tell me about it!

In my previous relationship my ex never wanted me to touch his wallet. It got me thinking like what was in there like why he didn't want me to look at it. A couple of times when he was in the shower or something I took a peek inside and I didn't see anything like if he was hiding or something. I try not to take my purse everywhere we go so I would always have him hold my ID and credit cards and if I had any cash so I don't think he ever wanted to look in my wallet. I think some people still want a little bit of privacy when they are in a relationship so thats why some people get offendend.

I don't usually mess with my husbands wallet either. About the only time I am in it is if we are traveling and I am in charge of getting out the money for the tolls. Sometimes if I have it I will clean out all the old receipts for him because he never does lol. Other than that I don't mess with it. Partially because he writes notes in his wallet about gift ideas for me sometimes and I would hate to spoil the surprise.
