Where do you stand on this?
I read something interesting today on my newsfeed and would like to hear your thoughts..
If your partner received an urgent looking legal letter in the mail and you called them at work asking if they wanted you to open it and read it to them and they replied "no, stop being so nosy", would this offend you? Even though you had never in the past opened their mail before or shown any interest in doing so?
Where do you draw the line in a marriage or relationship regarding this? The opinions I read were a bit mixed.
On the one hand, the letter is in their name. On the other, you are married (or partnered etc) so shouldn't they be open and honest with you? Isn't that what a good, solid relationship should be about?
FTR, both parties already knew the gist of the contents of the letter, so it wasn't necessarily some big dark secret.
Would you feel mistrusted and unimportant? Like it was none of your business? Is that behaviour acceptable to people in a relationship?
I believe that we are all entitled to privacy and that being in a partnership or union doesn't automatically give your spouse the right to know every little minute detail, but in this instance, considering the circumstances, I'd have been really offended. Am I alone in thinking this way?
