Is it illegal to read your spouse's email?

The old adage in marriage is "What's yours is mine and what's mine is yours" but apparently that isn't the case when it comes to email. A man in Michigan is facing felony charges from reading his wife's gmail account. The prosecutor in the case is using a criminal statute that typically pertains to internet hackers but the man counters that his wife left her passwords for him to see. But who is in right? We talk to a legal expert, Paul Callan, about the precedent and a psychologist, Jeff Gardere, about what is morally responsible.
