This ownership has been a big issue for us. .
This is an issue of mine as well. I have the belief that information of the shared experience of two people belongs to both of them and there is an expectation for privacy. I don't feel I should have to start every conversation or activity with the words "please keep this between us". So I can relate to your partner's frustration. That being said, recognizing the different approaches to this sharing of experiences and establishing a mutually respectful understanding can alleviate this.
