Should you share your online passwords with your significant other?

Relationships need a solid foundation to survive. Love, in my opinion, equals trust, loyalty, respect, and appreciation. But where does privacy fit in?  Would you hand the key to your personal diary to someone you love? Would you give your significant other the password to your online accounts such as Facebook?

I believe that people are entitled to their privacy. With the invention of the Internet came a whole new meaning to the word privacy. Or lack of privacy. I have seen email addresses, Facebook accounts, and several other social media accounts that are shared by couples. I know of couples who allow for the sharing of their passwords. If that is acceptable by both then that is their business. There really is no right or wrong answer to the question of sharing online passwords as everyone has the right to their own personal preference.

  1. I have 100% trust, but I can barely remember my passwords, never mind sharing them! I really need to sort myself out with one of those services which gives you one overall password then generates random passwords for all your accounts. I would definitely share that for legacy reasons if nothing else.

    • I don’t see it as having a secret life. How I feel is that I want people to trust me enough that they don’t feel they have to have my passwords. But I understand how you feel. I’ve had a lot of people disagree with me, even my 83 year old uncle who has been married over 60 years. : )
