Judge orders divorcing couple to swap passwords on Facebook and dating sites

It's true -- warped but true.

A judge has ordered a divorcing Connecticut couple to swap passwords to Facebook and online dating sites.

According to Forbes.com, Judge Kenneth Schluger ordered that the attorneys for Stephen and Courtney Gallion exchange “their client’s Facebook and dating website passwords.”

While it's common that evidence from social networking sites is used in lawsuits and divorces, attorneys tend to find material by visiting someone’s profile not by signing into their accounts. But judges are sometimes forcing litigants to hand over their passwords.

As bizarre as this may seem, it's not the first time a judge has demanded a swap. Judges have even gone as far as signing into someone's Facebook account to look for evidence.

If you're in a marriage that's headed down hill, do you really want your ex to read emails and see photos of potential suitors? Couldn't that pose a future safety risk should an ex be emotionally unsettled? Preference aside, if you're legally required to pass along information, you won't have much choice in the matter.

What you can do, is have a backup of your messages by creating a date-a-base, in case a jaded ex tries to reword a thing or two.
