Should you share social media passwords with your partner?

Is it fair or right or even good?

Sharing social media passwords for many couples is a sign of commitment and/or honesty and a refusal of it casts a shadow on the seriousness of the relationship itself. It is a given that unless there is a need to otherwise (which is mostly seen as suspect) couples should naturally want to share their passwords without having been asked. Why this need for transparency? Is it fair or right or even good? Or is it somewhere about control? Or/and insecurity?

Social media passwords should be shared with partners or not? Team Bonobology asked this question on its Facebook page. Here’s what they had to say.

    I have been seeing couples all around me doing this. And I simply don’t understand this weird way to validate your love. I have never asked for my ex’s password nor did I share mine when I was in a relationship. I see it this way. Being in a relationship doesn’t mean you have to give access to every single damn corner of your life to your partner. There are things which are supposed to be personal. There has to be a zone where certain things are just your own.

    By my point of view, asking your partner for the social media account is just like no trust values and more like disrespecting the partner. It should not be a sign of healthy relationship.
