I’m reminded of this topic whenever I see Kris Aquino. In many of her movies, when someone operates her phone, either her kids or her husband, without her knowledge, she would say in a calm and out of tune tone, “Please, respect my privacy,” and she would turn her back and walk away. (Peace to those who like Kris :P)
There are lots of wives doing that to their husbands, but to not dubbed I’m singling out women, may I add then that in “some cases,”[stress] men also do the same. But in general, women do that a lot. he he he [fish]
Now,my question is, should privacy be practiced between a husband and a wife? If so, up to what level?
When two different individuals come to know each other, of course, their secrets are veiled. He/she shares only those secrets to his/her intimate friends. However, when those two individuals build a relationship that is more than just friendship, they begin to open those secrets — as much as possible, there should not be secrets between them. But since they are not yet married, although they are both in the same relationship, they still cannot spill all their secrets.
So when the time rolls and comes that those two get married, everything becomes “conjugal”, as attested by their signatures on their marriage papers.As provision of the being “one”, everything they have becomes the property of each other; in fact, even their very own souls – body, thought, heart and emotions, do not solely belong to just one, but rather each becomes each one’s property.
Their very secrets then are revealed; even their disturbing smallest mole becomes visible in each others eyes. BUT……

She gets a phone,and so does he… she gets email account, and so does he… she gets facebook account, and so does he… and then the world turns chaos. The woman begins to ask privacy in connection to her cellphone – that the husband should not touch it without her permission, or to avoid her account getting hacked by her husband or opened without her knowing, she makes her passwords complicated. In fact, she would even bring her phone in the bathroom, just in case. 🙂 Wow, isn’t that romantic!
But, is that sane? The same person you’ve shared your promises of love till death parts the two of you becomes “alien” when it comes to your personal things?
I still believe that between a couple, there should not be privacy. Share everything with your husband, and the husband must do the same, unless, you’ve got some secrets to hide as the comic strip has pointed out. [Forget about Kris Aquino :P]
