I have a college friend who shares an e-mail account with her husband. I REALLY hate it when he responds to e-mails that I address to her before she even has a chance to respond. I sent the e-mail to HER, not to HIM. Even if they share, I think it’s kind of rude/presumptuous for him to respond to her e-mails.
Do you share an e-mail account with your significant other? Am I out of line to be annoyed by his behavior?
(My hubby and I set up a joint e-mail account for wedding related stuff that either of us respond to, but otherwise have our own personal accounts).

Hmmm…I’ve never heard of that! Honestly, I think it’s a little silly…especially when email is SO popular – I could understand it back when no one used it, but now? Really?

i have my own email account but its thru the server/site hubby owns so he can view anything on it any time as hes the administrator. but its usually junk emails.
i would be peeved if he answered emails on my behalf without talking to me. if he was to answer using my email address i would expect him to type “hi, the mrs is telling me to type this…” as i dictate it to him
99.9% of the time i use my work email

I don’t think you’re out of line… I hate shared email addresses too!! I actually don’t email my friends who have shared accounts.
I read somewhere that a lot of couples do this as a method to prevent infidelity… well IMO a shared email account won’t stop that from happening.
My Fiance has my password & I have his, but its mostly for booking flights to see each other. If he purchased my ticket, I’ll go into his account & print off my itinerary. I don’t think either of us has ever checked the other’s email to snoop or for personal reasons! There’s no need. We trust one another 🙂

Oh heck naw. He doesn’t need to see my girlfriends’ gossip NOR mine. And frankly, I would have issues emailing a friend if i knew her SO read *everything*. I’d wonder if it was a control issue, or practicality or if he didn’t trust her or what!

We don’t share an email account and I wouldn’t share one with him! Email is private. 😉

No, we definitely have our own email addresses. We will probably put together a joint wedding one though, just for people with wedding related stuff since we have so many people travelling to the wedding. It will just be easier to keep everything organized… but otherwise… no way!

Hmmm…I think that would really annoy me. We only had a joint email that was connected to our wedding website. Never would have a recreational email together.

@crebre: I KNOW, right?! lol it’s ridiculous.
I know atleast 5 or 6 couples that have shared accounts….

Personally, I think it’s really weird!! But then again, we haven’t even gotten a joint bank account yet.

Well thank you ladies for reassuring me I’m not out of my mind.
I really can’t stand it and don’t know why they do it!

My parents share an e-mail account, but those are the only two people I had ever heard of. It makes Christmas and birthday shopping very difficult . . .
