    I assume that either 1) they are old and only one really knows how to use a computer or 2) someone cheated.

    We share an Instagram but he doesn’t really post. Its shares because I didn’t log off his phone and he started using it and didn’t stop

    I know a couple of couples who do this, and nobody except them who doesn’t hate it!  

    To me it indicates either trust issues or an unhealthy level of clinginess/joined-at-the-hip-ness.  And it’s a pain in the ass never knowing which one of them you’re talking to.

    Um…have never heard of this. Super cringey.

    It’s like I had a friend who shared a phone with her boyfriend for a while, I hated not knowing who I was talking to.

    I know one couple who do this. I never thought it was odd or that they did it because of something like cheating. It makes perfect sense for them. They’re husband and wife and have a life together, as well as their separate interests, so it makes sense for them to have one account where they share what they’re doing. It just works.

    Sharing an account is not strange to me. It’s all about what the couple are doing. There’s no clingy, saccharine behavior displayed by this couple, which makes a big difference.

    The only people I know who share accounts are my parents and my aunt and her partner. But neither account is broadcasted as a shared account – it’s listed in one person’s name but both people use it. I know my parents do it because my mom just doesn’t see the point to creating her own account when everyone she wants to keep up with is already friends with my dads account…lol

    I assume someone cheated, 100% of the time. In the cases I have known about, it is usually true. I also find it complicated/unnecessarily frustrating when I am only close to one member of the couple (the wife, for instance) and don’t know who is posting or who I am addressing at the time.  If you can’t trust your partner to interact on social media respectfully, then the answer isn’t to make your account a joint one as “NotMeEitherNotMeToo WeddedBee,” it should be to re-evaluate your life with that partner by hopefully getting some independence and distance as an individual.

    Yeah, it just hits a nerve for me.  Not sure why.  I have a friend who split with his wife, and he and his new fiance rebranded his fb to be hisandherfbname.  It’s just so weird, they actually argue in the comments back and fourth and then sign their name at the end of the comment.  I’m just not interested in whatever they’ve got going on here.  

    Here’s the thing, there was this big push awhile back about not defriending people just because you don’t agree with them on things.  Now, I don’t know where I land on that issue.  It’s been a downright nightmare with most of the political stuff going on in the US.  But to not bury my head in the sand, and to potentially keep conversations open with people I have cared about and may have different beliefs…I haven’t defriended anyone.  That’s the only reason they are still on my friends list.
