The answer is 100% madness. Sharing an email account is probably one of the worst things I’ve ever heard of. Ever. If we are currently friends and I find out you and your girlfriend share and email account, consider our friendship terminated. You are two distinct individuals. Therefore, you need to have two distinct emails. I would go insane if I had to file through emails upon emails of online shopping receipts and other nonsense. Beyond this how about trying to find that email you sent or received? What if your significant other deleted it? 27% of couples share an email? Well now I can’t be friends with 27% of people in relationships. The more you know.
What do you use for an email address if its a joint account? I assume the worst. Probably something like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Something along those lines. I just can’t seem to find any good reason for sharing an email other than snooping. If you’re snooping so hard you demand a joint email account, maybe end the relationship anyway. Just throw in the towel.
Reason #234353 why America is going to shit. Joint email accounts. Never thought I’d type that.
