    Should couples have access to each other’s phones?

    Should couples have access to each other's phones?

    Many of these answers are good, but a bit short-sighted for my taste.

    If your goal is to be in love, then you need to be completely vulnerable to the other person. Or else you will always think, “would they love me if they knew that about me,” and you won’t “know” if they truly do love you. By the way, being completely vulnerable includes being completely open and honest, which includes letting them go through your phone.

    But the answer is not that simple. Another part of being in love is trust. If you don’t completely trust someone, you probably won’t want to be vulnerable to them. And again a lack of vulnerability is not love.

      They can, but there shouldn’t be a reason. I feel a phone is quite a personal thing, almost like a diary, but not quite so personal. Even if you love your partner, trust them and tell them how you feel and what you think, it still doesn’t mean you want them to know exactly what you chatted to your friends about last time you went for coffee, so why would they want to look over your text messages to them? And if your old high-school friend confided to you in an FB message suddenly about something, or asked about how life is going, it’s not something your partner must know. you can choose to tell them, of course, but they don’t need to know.
      Trust is wonderful, but a little personal space is quite priceless.

      I half way understand why people look at each others phones… when you are in a relationship built on trust looking at each others phones is a violation of that trust. So I’m General it should never happen.

      My ex had kind of shaken my trust. She would literally spend the entire time in the phone. What would seriously irritate me is that she seemed nervous about me being near it at the end. I sometimes wonder what I would have found. It wouldn’t have mattered she broke up with me in text message a few days later
