Why passwords should be shared in a committed relationship?

Updated: Apr 24, 2021

In as much as this sounds controversial, Is your significant other entitled to your social media passwords in a committed relationship? Sharing passwords in a relationship can feel really intimate, as we are in a world where almost every activity is being done online. Giving someone that level of access to you sounds like a big deal, and can be scary. Your partner having access to your social media accounts and private messages, shows how much trust you have in them. While some people see it as no big deal, others see it as a big No!

Passwords are private and most times should be kept private, knowing your partner's passwords does not show the extent to which they love you. You can know your partner's passwords and still be cheated on, without smelling a rat. In my opinion requesting for passwords isn't needed as if you go looking for trouble you are bound to find it.

If there is trust, there shouldn't be anything you need to verify. You should be able to ask questions and questions asked should be honestly answered. When you sneak in through your partners accounts, you give yourself unnecessary stress and heartache, you tend to assume things that are not true and this can shake your relationship; thus leading to breakup.

However, if you need their passwords to sneak through their phone, you need to ask yourself why you are doing that and if it is healthy for your emotional and mental health.

What are your thoughts on having access to your partners social media account? Do they have access to yours? Does not giving out your passwords automatically mean you are hiding something? Let us kno.
