Here’s a question for y’all. Do you think there is a level of privacy inherently expected within marriage, ie, you shouldn’t read your spouse’s email, or journal, or whatever, or do you think that if you’re married to somebody, it means that everything is open? I don’t have a dog in this fight, I’m just curious what others think. I’ve known of marriages that have suffered because one spouse read another’s “personal and private” communications, and I’m wondering how people feel about keeping certain things private from a spouse. And if so, what kinds of things do you keep private? Like I said, I don’t have a point, necessarily, just pondering.
Also, is there a level of privacy inherently implied within a family, i.e., you shouldn’t read your child’s journal, read texts, etc? Are there lines that shouldn’t be crossed unless there is a problem, and if so, when does that line get nullified?
