    hey guys, would you prefer sharing your passwords of social networks or email to your loved one?
    For a perfect relationship is that necessary?

      You asked the guys, and I'm not one,  but in today's world you share your password with NO-ONE, not even your husband/wife, if you want to be secure online.

      I really do not feel this is a necessary step in any relationship, your email and your social networking accounts are your own. Just because I do not want to readily handover my password to whoever I'm dating doesn't mean I'm cheating, it simply means they should trust me enough to not have to ask.

      Ask yourself - what percentage of relationships end in separation or divorce?

      Even if you think you're the perfect couple, there's still a risk it won't last.  In fact, it's probably more likely if you think you're a perfect couple, because such a thing doesn't exist, so at least one of you isn't being true to themselves.

      Besides, if you feel you want to know your girlfriend's password, you may as well split now.  You obviously don't trust her enough to let her live her own life and have her own friends.  Women hate it when their boyfriends don't trust and respect them - she'll get fed up of that, and dump you eventually.

    If she asked -- yes I would. But that's exactly why she doesn't need to (and won't).

    Yea but what if a bf asks for his gfs password, and she rejects?
    wouldn't the guy think shez cheating or somehting?

      Yes, but you know it is better to be thought of as a cheat, than to be ripped off.
      Unless you know your partner through and through, do not allow them this access.
      If you are a decent man who doesn't cheat, she will learn that soon enough as she comes to know you better.

      And then if you break up she/he uses it as a means to spy on the other? I would say no.

      My husband and I shared ours while we were dating, and I'll tell you it made things a lot stronger in this age of technology. If you have nothing to hide there should be no harm in sharing. If you or your partner says no then I wouldn't jump to conclusions, but I would say your relationship is probably not built on the right stuff.

    well, Doctor Phil says you should smile but not to use it to spy on your spouse...

    But i definitely would not if it was just a boyfriend.

    If you must share passwords (and I wouldn't in the first place), make sure you change them when the relationship ends, ASAP.

    But seriously, don't - unless there's a valid reason, like a shared account or something like that.

    regardless of whether you give your password out or not if someone checks your email with out your permission it could be a federal crime and possibly a state felony.

      I agree, and after my husband and I shared ours while dating I can honestly say I never checked his and I know he never checked into mine. Trust, trust, trust!

    In my relationship, if he asked I would let him although I wouldnt like it. He thinks people waste there lives away online and I try to explain there is money to be made.

    People in this day and age change boyfriends/girlfriends so freqently it doesn't make sense to exchange passwords. Secondly if someone is asking for your password or you are asking for theirs it appears you don't trust them or vice versa. Why spend time with someone you don't trust?
    A relationship is when two "individuals" become one unit but not the "same person". Having your own anything is what make you your own person.
