Do phone passwords ruin relationships?

I believe it is not the phone password rather the mistrust and insecurity in a relationship which is the culprit of fights that couples have. Of course the idea of a password is for privacy and security reasons. I remember initially when mobile sets came to Nepal, people did not have the courtesy to ask while using someone else’s phones. It used to be awkward to ask random people to not touch them. In a way I was thankful when smart phones came to use and we could keep passwords.  Riyaj (my husband) and I always know each other’s passwords so there has never been a fight over it. We have only fought over the content in our phone, at times (laughs). The only people who have secret passwords that their loved ones don’t know, I believe, are hiding something.
