And fully two-thirds of couples share passwords. The broad statistical picture looks like this: Young adults more likely to report that technology has an impact—good and bad. Older adults and those who have been in their relationship for longer than ten years are especially likely to share an email account. Sharing of online calendars tends to be most prevalent among couples in their logistics-intensive middle-age period i. As a broad pattern, those who have been married or partnered ten years or less have digital communication and sharing habits that differ substantially from those who have been partnered longer.
