Why Couples Shouldn’t Share Each Other’s Social Media Login Details

It is more than discovering your partner’s hidden Facebook affair

You eat on one plate. You wear his large t-shirt and boxer shorts.

That’s how we picture a normal, cutesy relationship.

Sharing, loving, cuddling and farting together.

If you are in a relationship, are you willing to share everything? All the sordid details of your childhood, embarrassing high school moments.

What about social media accounts and login details?

This is not the first time this topic interests me, but not positively.

Many think being in a relationship with someone means you have to share everything, but I don’t see it affecting the relationship in a good way.

A conversion with my little sister brought me to write this article and share my opinion about it.

It wasn’t the first time I heard that couples exchange their login details with each other. In fact, in my college days, my friends used to share theirs with their boyfriends.

So back to the present day to my sister who I found out was very upset over something I couldn’t put a finger on. She was hesitant to tell me what’s wrong when I couldn’t let the topic go. I was even more adamant after she told me she used to cry almost every day.

She’s living with my parents now and has to stay at home because of pandemic lockdown and all. She’s already in a long-term relationship with a guy who is a year her junior -which doesn’t bother her at all.

I thought about what could have caused my 21-year-old sister so much distress.

It might be depression from not being in the university, with her friends or missing life pre-Covid. Maybe she’s suffering from depression, from the uncertainty caused by this lockdown.

But what she told me next proved me wrong — her boyfriend was chatting with another girl 6 days after being together.

Then she asked me afterwards if the guy disappointed me. Oh, more than disappointed, but it’s not about me here.
