What would you say if your SO wanted passwords to access all your communications?
I’ve seen this in a couple of places recently. One was a recent answer to a question on fluther. The other was a story line on “Entourage.” In either case, they mentioned SO’s (I think mainly women) wanting passwords to email and facebook, and to be allowed to look at their SO’s phone.
Do you know of any other examples of this? Have you done it? What does it mean? Why would you think you have a right to request such a thing? How would you react if your SO asked for this access?
It seems to me like this is evidence that some people think that couples no longer have a right to some privacy. They get to police each other. Maybe it’s a sign of trust, or maybe it’s a sign of suspicion. What do you think it’s all about?
