For me I share pretty much everything about myself with my partners. However if someone has told me something and hasn't expressly consented to having another party know then it isn't for me to share. That would be why I wouldn't be comfortable with having my emails and texts read. I don't like it when my stuff gets shared with people without my consent so it's important to me that I don't share other people's stuff without their consent.
