    Do you think spouses should know each others passwords for online accounts (i.e. email, Facebook)?

    Well if they trust each other than yes, however some things can always get misconstrued. Also if there re problems in later life it could a major problem if your spouse had access to information that could cost you work or friends

    If they have nothing to hide from each other then yes.

    Yes. I do not think that trusting spouses would have any problem with this. There are times where I tell my wife not to look at something because it might give away a gift or something but that is it.

    The other factor is that your spouse should know these in case something happens to you and they need to get information from an e-mail or other account.

    I think it's perfectly fine, so yes. That's for my circumstances though, with my relationship. There were many times where I needed my other half to print something out or look up something on my e-mail accounts and it definitely helped me out.

    On the other hand, every couple is different. If it somehow helps to have each other's passwords then go for it. Although, if it causes complications and so forth -- then keeping your accounts seperate will have to do.

    No they shouldn't, or at least not necessarily.

    I think it would be OK to ask the other person to log on for you so you can look together while you are sitting side-by-side, but I don't like the idea of both people having access to the same account.  If nothing else, gmail from Google doesn't like it when the same account is logged on from different locations (e.g. if 1 spouse was checking email at home and the other from work).  I just think that some things are private, even when people have nothing 'to hide' from each other.

    Spouses should always be willing to share their online and cellphone passwords particularly if one partner starts to feel insecure about perceived or actual flirting or emotional affairs.

    I think people should conduct themselves in any such communication with the opposite sex, like their partner is online, viewing and responding emotionally to text or listening in on the call. This goes for online porn as well.

    The relationship and couples counseling science is conclusive here. The popular idea that someone is over emotional or crazy when they feel insecure emotionally is false. This response is normal. It should signal their partner to provide reassurance and soothing before things get out of hand.

    The idea that opposite sex friendships that lead to extra marital affairs, are some how the exception, is also false. It's actually the other way around. 

    In the current economic and social climate, we have to try and keep marriages and families strong.

    i think Couples Should. Only Because if you are doing nothing wrong, why do you care if they have the password or not. plus it puts both in a position where they can say " okay, i noe he/she isnt talking to anyonee online behind my back" && if you Catchh them hiding thing's then you can Question them about there shady actions..

    I think yes. I have no problem with my fiance having access to any of my e-mails or my facebook. He, however, doesn't feel the same way. He gets mad when I go through his phone. He thinks I'm snooping on him etc. which I am but still. I don't have anything to hide though so I don't get the big deal. I'd give him my password for things if he gave me his... but until he does that I'm keeping mine private just to spite him.
