Re: Computer passwords

I have a password on my account on our computer. She does, too. She doesn't know mine. This stemmed from a decade's worth of her blowing up our various computers over the years. She seems to have the superpower to destroy tech without even trying. Our first few years of marriage, we were averaging a new desktop PC or major recovery efforts every 2-3 years because something would go down while/immediately after she used the computer. Since I've been the sole holder of the administrator's pw we've only changed computers when we've upgraded.

Would I give her the password? If she was adamant, but man it's expensive to have computers fixed...

There is a pw on my phone. She has it. I don't think she knows my pw for my gaming e-mail account...she could have it if she was interested in it...

Re: Computer passwords

Currently not married and we don't share our passwords although because I have a great memory for such things I am pretty sure I know hers. We don't look at each other's stuff. If married we would still have passwords but she could look at my stuff anytime she wanted and I with her.

Hell if she came to me today and asked to look on my phone at texts or email or whatever I would let her. I don't cheat or hide things and she knows that which is probably why we never ask to look at each other's things lol

Re: Computer passwords

I have passwords on my laptop and my phone, my wife doesn't know either of them. It's not so much that I don't want her accessing them, if she asks to use either I let her no problem but I open them, I don't tell her the password. There are things I look at, read and research that my wife doesn't really need to know about. Yes if she sees something and asks me about it I tell her, but things like this site are just better off as an unknown let's call it.

As for her, she has passwords on her laptop and phone as well. She does the same thing, if I need to use one of them she let's me but she doesn't tell me the passwords. And like me, her reasoning is the same, there are things like conversations with her friends or whatever that are just none of my business.

LOL, that sounds like my wife. Anytime she ever used my laptop in the past I always had issues with it afterwards, and she's always complaining about how slow hers is even though it's not that old at all.

Re: Computer passwords

No passwords on our home computers. If there was I know I'd get accused of cheating. Our marriage is in enough trouble to drag that into the mix.
