Marriage Etiquette: Is It Ever OK To Read Your Spouse's Texts?

Posted: Updated:

Should your spouse be allowed to check your text messages?

This is a question that writer Jillian Bolger asked in her recent article for Herald.ie, in which she recounts how her husband asked her to stop checking his phone.

On one hand, spouses should presumably have nothing to hide on their handheld devices, so checking your partner's cell from time to time shouldn't be that big of a deal. On the other hand, spouses should ideally trust each other enough to not feel the need to keep tabs on each other's mobile usage.

We asked our Twitter followers to weigh in on whether or not it's OK for spouses to take a peek at each other's cell phones and emails. Read their responses below.
