Today’s question is from someone who wrote to The Guardian. Here’s her predicament:

My husband’s password is his ex-girlfriend’s name for almost every account, and I am devastated. After a few months of our marriage, I came to know about his past relationship. In the first two years of our marriage we had a lot of fights about his ex, but things eventually settled down when she got married. Good riddance, I thought.

We’ve been married for almost six years and recently I came to know his password is her name. It was a shock. When I confronted him, he threatened me and asked me to stop meddling in his personal life. I retreated. But I am heartbroken and burning from inside. What made him change his passwords to her name when initially they were different?
