this is in reference to weaponzeros question on privacy 3 mos ago.my brother emails me from work and I told him something I was keeping quiet for a while. after six months of discussing this, I mentioned something personal of his and he informed me his emails could be read by his family. as adults, do we really have to say, keep this private? esp when you tell them no one else knows. as adults, do we really have no privacy even in marriage? (my husband was the first to know but when I tell my brother something, am I automatically telling his wife and kids?)

Privacy is one of our basic human rights and it must be respected even in marriage. To not respect one's right to privacy is to not treat them as a decent human being.
Interestingly enough since I originally posted that question, my girlfriend of two months went snooping through my phone contacts and wrote down the phone numbers to all the contacts with female names. One of which was my financial aid counselor from school, one of which was a girl whose number I only saved because last semester we were assigned to work on a project together, and one of which was a co-worker. She started calling all these people to interrogate them. Needless to say I'm now single again.1
