Trade Secret: Me and Mrs Secret have been through multiple fights over passwords and personal accounts. I don't think that it is necessary that she has my passwords to everything (she believes it is) and I don't think that she needs to have my login info for everything (also believes this). There is nothing in my email or Facebook that she needs to fark with, all of the bills and credit stuff go to her account, so why does she need it? Because she is a control freak, like most women.Hell, we got in a big old brouhaha once when I changed my password (which EVERYONE should do a couple times a year) and didn't let her know right away./ I have nothing to hide, I just like to have my own things.//With 3 kids it is hard to lay claim to anything but bills...///yeah I know she is kind-of a biotch...
Dimensio: I am too technically inclined and security-conscious to consider giving anyone, even a significant other, access to my email accounts. I cannot comprehend needing a "secret" email account to hide correspondence from a significant other, because any significant other that I would have would have no reason to access my standard email accounts.
AutumnWind: Marriage therapists agree with your wife. Sorry, but they see everyday what comes of partners opening secret email and other communications accounts. Why do you feel that you have some sort of right to a private email account that your wife cannot see? Marriage isn't about mine and yours, but ours. If you aren't hiding anything, it shouldn't make any difference.If that's how it's supposed to be I'm never getting married. Just reading this and thinking about it makes me feel suffocated. People who write diaries aren't hiding anything usually, but they wouldn't want somebody else reading their personal thoughts there either. If I wanted to fuse into one person I'd become a mad scientist. I think it's also disrespectful to people who are writing to you and expecting YOU only to be reading the mail. I don't think I'd want to write to friends anymore if I knew they were sharing my mails. And I've got nothing to hide and don't write anything weird.... but I'm writing to them, not them and somebody else.
Gabrielmot: Before you mark someone's post here as "smart", it would be best to know who's divorced in this thread.-Here's a hint, those who don't want their wife to know their passwords...
I May Be Crazy But...: kiwimoogle84: Mrs.Sharpier: ha! as if anyone with an ultrafark account is attractive enough to score some side slawSpeak for yourself.I have three- one professional that goes on my resume, one hotmail for my Itunes and Amazon and spam, and everything else goes to my gmail.And if I wanted to be your guy on the side, which on should I send an e-mail to?
Bumblefark: My wife has my email password...we got lazy a while back, and just started using the same password for all accounts we have, in case the other person needs to access it.
iheartscotch: Their on to us; everyone, purge your tertiary email accounts.
jst3p: Wait, some people let their partner know their main email account password?
