We’re always told not to share our passwords with others, but that rule is harder to apply when it comes to the marriage relationship. Password sharing in your marriage is the newest sign of trust and if you are not willing to share your passwords with your spouse, you could be building up new levels of mistrust and causing issues you don’t even realize.
When it comes to secrets in marriage, there are none. Not being willing to share your passwords with your spouse is a sign of trust problems in your marriage. A healthy marriage is one that is built on total openness, honesty and that doesn’t hide things from one another.
The key is to be respectful and trustworthy about it when your spouse does open up and share their passwords. Nobody wants to share their passwords with someone who is “snooping around” hunting for information to use against them or get in a fight about.
Here are 2 great reasons why you should share your passwords with each other:
It will increase trust in your relationship - Sharing your passwords will increase the amount of trust your spouse has for you. If you are willing to share your passwords, then its confirmation to them that you have nothing to hide.
There are fewer misconceptions - If you withhold your password from your spouse, there may be instances where they will misinterpret something they see or read. For example, if a friend posts on your Facebook wall something in regards to a private message, your loved one may not fully understand why that person is posting on your wall. Of course, you can always fill in the blanks, but letting your loved one physically see your private messages will further help clear any misconceptions.
