    We have separate e-mail accounts. He also doesn’t have a FB account at all but I have one. We also don’t share pswds. If we are sending out an e-mail from both of us….whoever sends it out will just copy the other person.

    Nope.  We keep them separate.  We know e/o’s passwords, but we don’t actually check e/o’s emails or anything.  Several of my aunts and uncles and friends’ parents share email, but we’ve both had our own email accounts for so long that it doesn’t make sense for us to share.  I have enough trouble keeping up with my own email!

    We don’t share email or facebook accounts. Maybe in the future we’ll get a joint email account, but still keep our individual ones.

    We definitely have separate accounts, but we have the same passwords, just because it is easier to remember- not necessarily for any other reason.

    We have separate accounts but both have free access to them.

    I hate shared facebook accounts!!! The names are blurred together like JohnKate Smith and then they have to sign their posts off as ~John or ~Kate. I hate them!!!! We have separate ones =P. But my parents share an email account. But Dh and I are way, way more tech savvy.

    No, neither but we have each others passwords.  Neither of us really go on FB much but once in awhile I’ll tell him to put vacation pictures up on my page or he needs something out of his email so I’ll get it for him.  So they’re seperate but open to each other.

    We don’t.  I have a few friends from HS that share a FB account.  It wouldn’t work for me.  I like to have my own identity on their, with my friends only.  Sure we have mutual friends, but I also have at least 200 that he doesn’t know.  So that’s just weird.  And we often communicate through their, so he’d have no idea what we were talking about if he were to read it first.  Plus, people are probably less likely to leave you messages or write on your wall if its supposed to be intended for both of you.  The email thing isn’t as difficult to me.  Because its mostly bills and crap that gets sent to me.

    I don’t get the shared FBook account. I put “other”…We don’t have shared email, but I can see why, in the future, we might create one. It’s just easier in terms of stuff with kids (school stuff, playdates, camp, classes, etc) and stuff that’s for both of us (vacation stuff, home stuff, etc). Then we don’t have to worry about forwarding it to the other person. But then again, we know the passwords to each other’s email and I would feel fine with him checking my email if there’s something in there that’s for us.

    We have seperate accounts, I think it’s weird to share all of that stuff esp. e-mail there’s is noway he needs to be reading all of my work e-mails and stuff.

    We have seperate accounts, but we know all of each others passwords. Neither of us use facebook that much, so it’s not too big of a deal. I dont quite understand how someone would “share” a facebook account. Just because you are part of a couple, doesn’t mean you lose your indiviudal identity…. Seems weird to me.
