Do you share your email with your husband or significant other?

I don't understand why people do this.

Hubby and I have full access to each other's email, FB, etc. We both know the other looks at online porn, too. No secrets here.

I don't share an email address with my husband. We see eachother's mail but I think it's weird when people share an actual address.

Yes. We share a phone too. Oh, and we share a house as well. We also share our children.

So when you receive a phone call on your shared phone do you both answer it and listen in? When your SO gets physical mail - do you go throughall of it? Do you have to have sex to create the account?

Communications should have a degree of privacy. I'm not talking deep, darque sekrits, but mutual respect and trust for each other's privacy in their interactions and relationships with others.

Privacy and it's boundaries are personal. I wouldn't care if my SO read my emails or my texts. I may not want my mother reading them, but I don't care if my SO does.

haha, my thoughts were similar to 4:08, i rekon itd just b confusing to share an email adress with a SO, all ur mail will get put in together, its not very organised, like if my SO opened mine up and hten relized its not his and then wen i go check my email its already been opened so i might think i already read it and i dont end up reading it myself, seems silly. but i think it shud be fine to see eachothers mail as well if u want to

we don't share facebook or email but we have access to each others accounts. When you get married you marry everything. We dont regularly check each others accounts but there have been several times we have had to use them. and to 10:36 whats the judgment of others about?

If your degree of privacy and/or openness is agreeable to you both - why care what others do or don't do?

My parents share an e-mail account and it's very much like what 12:02 said. LOL. I have to write in the subject line "for Mom" or "for Dad" which still doesn't always work. And when I receive e-mail from them, I don't always know who it was from. But I'm sure that's not everybody. If I have something important to tell them I call.

We both have separate (and multiple) e-mail accounts (work, job hunting, personal, a throwaway for using online to avoid SPAM...) and we both know each other's passwords so that if one of us is away for a week without modern conveniences (just imagine! horrors!) the other one can check for important stuff that needs handling, sort the less urgent, and dump the SPAM box to make for a happier and less stressful homecoming for the other. I guess if you were wired 24/7/365 that wouldn't be an issue, but we backpack and travel to weird locales with no services, so it comes in handy.

highly suggest keeping separate email. LOTS of confusion can flow. Minor things can be taken out of context.

if you have nothing to hide then why would you worry??

We have our own emails etc., but we both know the info for both of them. Doesn't bother either of us. Besides, he is the computer programmer in this home and knows EVERYTHING any way! LOL

I don't have anything to hide so I have no problems with him looking at my accounts and he has no problems with me looking at his. We pretty much tell each other about our daily emails anyway.

3:01, I can see where having only 1 account for the two of you could be a hassle at times but if neither of you were hiding anything, there shouldn't have been a problem.

I think it all boils down to being able to trust the person your sharing your info with.
