Today we discussed privacy.

Tricky. Very tricky topic. I have my own emotional baggage with this issue. In my last relationship, I wasn't allowed to have privacy. My diary, email, facebook, and phone were, in his mind, public property. So while I might have agreed with the belief that couples should share everything once upon a time, now it makes me skittish.

How much should a person demand from their partner, and how much should their partner allow them to take? What's healthy, and what's controlling? I haven't quite figured that out yet.

An adult relationship? I can handle it.
