My mom and step dad have been married now for about 11 years. They are very chill people and they have no privacy because as my mom and step dad say, once they married, they became 1. They have nothing to hide from each other and no secrets. My step dad will get a message on his phone while he's in the garden and my mom will reply. My step dad does the same with my mom. They obviously let each other know that they got a message or phone call. They share an email as well. They are so open and loving towards each other. My step dad always told me, what's the point of getting married when there's going to be not trust and secrets.
I hope to have a loving, open marriage like my mom and step dad. They've really hit the jackpot when marrying each other. Everyone says they won't get divorced and I can tell that they will never get divorced. They'll die an old couple.
I don't understand this obsession with partner's phone. What are people are looking to find?
I would never ever ask my partner to go through his phone. It's his phone. He's entitled to privacy and that has nothing to do with me.
If I want to know something, I will ask.
I take a lot of pictures of random things and stuff. I don't want anyone to see it because it's something I would like to keep it to myself. I text with my girlfriends about personal stuff and I don't think they would appreciate if my partner was reading these conversations.
No matter how great is the relationship, everyone is entilted to privacy.

I don't know where to sit on this... If you were brother and sister could he have your cellphone? Yes, no secrets and complete openness but... Something just feels off about it... Where is the trust? Also where is the freedom? You and your girlfriends have conversations is it ok for your boyfriend/husband to know every detail of them, does he need to? It's not just your privacy it's everyone else's, let's say you are a nurse or caseworker, you are supposed to have client/patient privacy. There is something to this...
Passwords aren't for your partner.. they are for the asshole who might get your phone if you lose it or have it stolen. Not having a password just to prove some kind of trust is CRACKERS! Protect your phones people. Give your password to your partner if it makes you feel better but don't leave your phone unprotected!
