    Your contacts , photos , apps will be synced. With windows phone 8.1 it will sync your start screen , settings , internet explorer history /saved passwords but you can disabled them on your device.

    No problemsat all, i have 3 lumia's running the same account. Email, sms, everything syncs normal. Paid apps run on all of them without a problem, download and pay on 1 Phone, download on the other and click : buy, and the store won't charge you twice.

    I guess you could say that other person will have access to the same email account and synced contacts. Also that person may also be able to purchase apps, music etc if there are any financial info stored on said account.

    Perhaps a silly question, but why don't you get your girlfriend her own account? It isn't exactly difficult to create them lol.
    Then just reset the phone you give her and log into her account.

    Also texts and themes will be synced (that was a bit shocking the first time it happened when phones start screen suddenly shifted to a light theme)

    Oh and the other person will be able to read your texts as they arrive, so no cheating

    One owner - not any problem.
    Two owners - other one feels to be behind bars when other one dictates the rules of usage😠
