I don't know my husband's, and he doesn't know mine, by memory, but we've only been married for 10 months.

I know my mom knows my dad's, but I'm not sure if my dad knows my mom's.

What's the point of this question?

I made my point without going into detail when I said I may owe my husband an apology - infer from that what you will. Apparently some people require details. If you don't want to answer, no one's banging you over the head to.

I have my husband's memorized

He does NOT have mine memorized (probably doesn't even know where his or my SS card are)

i know his... for practial reasons, and because ours are exactly the same except the last four digits, so it's really easy to remember. it comes in handy knowing it.

Wow, I thought this thread was going to be a parody of the Poll threads.

Call me crazy... but I thought the PT threads were about nutrition and exercising, and anything else related to getting fit? Why the weird questions, like "Your spouse's SSN", "Renting a Car", "Kissing"? Maybe some of you need to find some "real" friends and not just rely on "virtual" friends!

wow - lots of people with numbers memorized. I don't know his and I don't care if I do. I can easily look it up if needed. He may or may not know mine - not sure.

Jesus whats the purpose of this dumb question?

I, for one, think this is a very interesting question. I don't have my husband's memorized, but I keep it in my address book in case of emergency. And I have needed it--in the hospital ER, when filling out forms for med insurance, when filling out tax returns, information for my son's school....

I know my hubby's SSN by heart but he does good to remember our kids

I know my husband's and he knows mine, though I learned his quicker thanks to the Army National Guard, which required me to give it every two minutes. I memorized it and for a while it came to mind much faster than my own.

We've been married 20 years--I think he just memorized mine by accident.

For the whiners--try to remember that these discussions are opt-in. All you have to do to NOT participate in off-topic discussions is to do nothing. If you want to participate you have to opt in, which means you made the choice to be here. If you choose to be here, why complain at what you find? It's like walking into the wrong class at college, you know--"Oops, sorry," duck back out.

I know my husbands (we're in the military and it's mandatory on almost everything, or at least it was), but I don't think my hubby knows mine - he doesn't need to whereas I need to know his in order to do anything on base. I'm hard pressed to believe that I would know his if I didn't "have to". Hope that helps.

My husband has memorized mine, but for some reason I don't know his although I have it handy when I need it. My ssn is needed to log into our onlline banking, so that is why he knows mine.
I do however know my ex-husband's I used to do all his paperwork for him no matter what it was.

I know mine, my kids', my husband's and my ex-husband's (for the same reasons as 12:12 - I used to do all the ppwk, but now it's handy for filling out insurance forms for the children as he carries their health insurance).

My husband doesn't know mine, though, as he never uses it for anything. It seems like all of our joint stuff is through him as he carries the health insurance and is the primary borrower on our mortgage and car loans, which are the two things we use his SSN for the most.

I know mine and my husband's SSN's. My husband knows his (amazingly!), but he doesn't know mine. I do all the paperwork in the house, so he would have no reason to know mine. Actually, I wonder if my husband still knows his or not. He hasn't had to use it in a LONG time.

The rule in our house is that he has to remember my birthday and our anniversary. I'll remember everything else. : )

I know all of my family's by heart. My husband doesn't have a clue, I'd be surprised if he knew his. I'm the one that takes care of most everything that may need them so there's no reason for him to worry about it. He know's where to look if he were to need them though.

I have mine and my husband's memorized. They are very similar so it was easy to remember and I take care of the bills.

He doesn't have mine memorized, but he does good to remember his own.

I have tons of numbers memorized and it always surprises me how I can keep track of them all :P

I know his. He doesn't now mine. Now who do you think pays the bills? He earns most of the money and I pay the bills. I think thats a pretty good set up Huh

My husband knows mine, barely, but I always have to ask him his. I think it's an interesting question as well because I always feel like I should know his by now. We have been married 18 years!

so ... memorizing my spouse's SSN would burn maybe .5 kcal. Some days I can't remember his name, so if I work on that I could burn another .5 or so. Add on his cell phone number that I never memorized, his siblings' birthdays, and the tag numbers of both our cars, and I can have a triple-fudge whatever for dessert tonight!

Maybe this thread wasn't as irrelevant as I thought ...

I know my husbands SSN, and have for 20+ years (yes, being married that long is a miracle in it's self, isn't?), but as a typical man, he doesn't have a clue what mine is and has no plans on ever memorizing it.
