i'm really wondering if it's okay to give out your passwords to your partners? i believe that even though in you're in a relationship with someone, you should still have your own privacy as an individual. it's not just you're afraid to beget caught but there are just some things that are better kept to yourself.

Being in a relationship does not mean giving up individuality. I am a private person and there are things that I will NEVER share.

yes, i believe the same way you do. even when you're in a relationship, you should never forget who you are before you met the person. you should let yourself grow, too.

The privacy is important for everybody. If others steal it, it will give us a big trouble. Since they can take advantage of your personal information to cheat you or your family and friends. However, as to sharing our privacy like email, social networking, ATM passwords is fine with me. Since he is my husband, I like to share my these information with him. So if one day I have an accident, at least he can also deal with it. I haven't done something wrong, so I am not afraid of sharing my privacy with my husband. I also know my husband's privacy but I will not check his emails unless he asks me to do so.

yes, i think there should be a place where you keep the important things so when an accident happens, everything will be organized so that everything cold be handled smoothly . i guess it's also out of respect to your loved one.

the funny thing in my family is i know all passwords of my husband's account,but he has no idea of mine.we trust each other much and he gave me all,of course i love my husband much as well and i'm sure it is not hurt to let him know these,but it's better to keep it by myself..lol

yes, he trusted you with his passwords so i don't think you should tell it to anyone. it's your responsibility that you take care of your husband's trust.

For me it's not okay because I feel that I can't be trusted. But when my partner asks for it, I can't say no. I think we all do it too, what I mean is, we don't have a choice not to give it to our partner. I'm also afraid that she will lose her trust in me. Have a nice day and happy mylotting! :)

why do you feel you can't be trusted? you should never doubt yourself in everything you do. you should trust yourself first before you can trust other people honestly.

To be honest,I don't mind it at all.I always think my family memebers are my closest person and I would trust them always.And in fact,they don't want to my password of the bank account as well.But I do agree with you that we should have our own private space even we are in a close relationship with someone.We rely on one another,but sometimes we are the independent individuals.

i think it's just keeping things for your own. not that you don't trust them but a choice to have your own world.

I am not against those who give their passwords to share their passwords with their partners. But for me...I won't give my password to my partner. I would rather suggest we can have one account wherein we share the password. But for my personal email- or account, I won't share it with my partner.

i think having a common account is a great idea so you can share things that concerns both of you without having the impulse to look up into your partner's account.

well, maybe because of the length of your relationship, you know you can really trust your partner.

Yeah.. I agree.. I never give any account or even my password to my partner. Everyone deserve to have a privacy. If he trust you then there is no need to explain this why you keep your own password.

it really is a question of how much your partner trusts you. it's not about being defensive. it's about being yourself.

I think however close your partner might be, it is not really a good idea to provide or share password with anyone. I do have a group of friends who are trusted and share password, but i still think sharing password or any such private information is dangerous.

yes. it happened to my cousin. her friend knows her facebook password that's why she made a new account when they fought. she's afraid her former friend would use that account to do such bad things.

i agree with you. im married and im sure my husband knows nothing about my password for all of accounts i have such Facebook, YM or emails. i have opinion that we are married but i have rights as an individual (like what you said). i have rights to decide what i do, with whom i make friends and search for my own enteetainment. i need my own space. i want to be as free as common human though i have been married. of course it is limited by my own rules that im a wife who should respect my hubby, im a mom who should take responsible to my child. it is limited freedom but still i wont share my password. my cellphone has a pattern lock and i also dont share the pattern with my hubby. lol. i dont hide anything but i was so awkward if he knows evertything i do or talk with my friends. we share everything but not password. lol.

i agree with everything you said here. i guess with individual privacy, there will still be mystery surrounding the both of you that will excite and make you curious about each other.

I agree! I wouldn't give my passwords to anyone no matter how close they are to me. You never know if you break up that they won't use it to check what your doing or even give it to someone else. We have to protect our privacy at all costs.
