Email Accounts are free. You should never share a single address with your wife or parents.
Have you ever finished the day and realized that there was a stain on the left butt cheek of your pants? Then you sit there feeling embarrassed wondering how many people noticed it, laughed, but said nothing to you.
This is how people who share emails will feel someday when someone tells them that it is foolish to share email addresses. Every time they give out their email (which is always like email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or, even worse, email@example.com) people snicker and think to themselves about how foolish this person is that they share an email address with other people.
Haven't they heard of Gmail? Yahoo? Hotmail? There are plenty of options for someone to have their own email address. Hell, even you, @braylonson, are rocking your own email address (and twitter account), and you're 2 at the time I write this.
There are plenty of reasons why you should rock your own email address (privacy, your email account is your login to a lot of websites, things like bank statements get sent to you, etc.), but if you aren't rocking your own person email address you just come across as socially inept and stupid. If you don't have your own email address and you are reading this, please, please, please just go get a free address right now.
