Let’s stay together but not share it all

True love does not equate to the sharing of account information. In a relationship it is natural to share your dreams, fears and lifelong goals with your significant other, but when it comes to your Facebook password, email login information, or the lock code to your smart phone, a line has to be drawn somewhere.
