The issue of privacy has been a long time issue.Should guys/babes be allowed total access to all their partners have?Text messages,e-mails,Facebook password,Bank account balance,etc.So,do you think there should be privacy in relationships or, as far as there's love and seriousness,should there be total openess?

privacy should be allowed out of respect and trust, but you should not HIDE anything.

its a thin line especially when you live together.

My partner and I have privacy, but at the same time, if i e-mail or FB account was open when he went online, i would not be worried about what he will see etc, cos i have nothing to hide and vice versa

so i can leave my phone in same room as him and go out or even ask him to answer my call when i am out of reach - but it doesnt mean he should go sneaking up behind me checking my msgs etc,

I think there should be some level of privacy. Like neither person should be snooping through text messages or soiling into e-mails in secret, but at the same time neither party should have anything to hide. Like it shouldn't be a big deal if you leave your e-mail up and I glance at your inbox before I log you out. You shouldn't be diving across the room to log out because I glanced at your e-mail for a second as I tried to log out. Or you shouldn't be worried if I want to use your phone, and wanting to erase "check something" on your phone before I can use it.

But the whole sharing passwords and pin code thing, I think its a bit too much unless it's a joint account of some sort. If you trust me why do you want to log into my e-mail or facebook when I'm not there?

I for one, won't ask his fb password or email password. Relationships are built on trust. When I want to see what he's got in his inbox, I will ask him to show me. If he refused, I should know something is not right. But there should be no room for just plain misunderstanding, I will get the bottom it first.

he can do the same to me. Ask me when he wants to see my personal mails.

But text messages may be another matter, they are too easy to check out and not password protected. Maybe not a big deal.

@topic

To learn my partner's passwords, PIN, access codes, etc ?!!!

I am not even sure I can remember all of my passwords. God help!

When it comes to privacy question, two pople should make an agreement beforehand, otherwise misunderstanding could ruin the r/s.

If there is nothing to hide. I should be able to read text messages. They usually reveal a lot.
