    I always check Jason’s email, the only reason why I check it is because we sell stuff on craigslist and thats the account that we use. Cell phone no. I only use his if mine is not with me

  2. This is sad. If you have to check on your partner then you do not know the true joy of a loving, trusting relationship.

    Of course it is. However, if you feel that insecure, there is more going on in your relationship than snooping around will fix.

    I wouldn’t now but I might have in the past when I was younger and dumber. Anyone trying to hide anything in their cell phones or email is an idiot. Like hiding something in your purse. But like Jenny, if I was looking for something I wouldn’t hesitate.

    PS. If I want to “hide” something, I just set it on the kitchen table!! Nobody ever notices the clutter!!

  5. Emphatically NO.

    Privacy is something that everyone deserves. Also, if you don’t trust your partner and if you can’t have an honest talk about whatever’s bothering you in his/her behavior, then you shouldn’t be with him/her.

    I see a difference between “checking” and “snooping”. For example, when Steve first went blind, I had to check his email for him – he couldn’t see it, and didn’t yet have a computer that read it to him. Jenny is checking her husband’s email because they both have an interest.

    Snooping, as has been pointed out, means that there is potentially something wrong. So which is more wrong? The infidelity (which is usually what is hidden by the ‘privacy’ of email or texting)/sneakiness/hiding something from your spouse, or the snooping that uncovers it? Either way, both are a breach of trust. One just happened before the other.

    I don’t have a life partner, but I don’t think anyone should be snooping. If one person gets something amusing or important it can be shared. However it would be really stupid for a spouse or partner to use a cell phone or e-mail to sneak or try to hide it from their spouse!

    I dunno – if I had doubts about my spouse I would probably snoop. The snooping itself wouldn’t be the issue. It would be a lack of trust issue and let’s face it, lots of spouses are unfaithful. I don’t think it would be wrong to want to know if mine was one of them – if I had some other reason to suspect. Frankly I’ve been cheated on after giving all the “benefit of the doubt,” and it didn’t leave me feeling any more virtuous than I would’ve felt had I snooped.
