Should couples keep secrets?

When you have been together for a really long time, you begin to figure out what needs to be done to keep the peace in realtionships. A married couple once told me that sometimes total honesty has no place in a relationship! Obviously, you don’t want to hide the fact that you have another spouse or anything, but are there some secrets that couples should keep?

I always believed that I would marry my best friend. Someone I could share everything with, but I am starting to wonder if I am being naive. Why should a couple keep things from each other? What does it mean when it becomes a habit? How do you know what needs to be said, shared, or revealed versus what needs to be kept a secret?

Have you ever wished that you actually had less honesty in a relationship? Do you think that a couple that keeps secrets will eventually end up harming the relationship more than helping it?

“Let me just put the tip in”

“Sure, I will tell you before I…”

Even as a teenager, I thought this to be one of the dumbest and boldest lie a boy could say.

There is a man that works in my dept that is deaf. He leads the most exciting life. His wife is an interpreter and they have a 5 yr old daughter. They have gone mountain climbing in S American, his wife surprised him with a trip to Paris for their anniversary and they just got back from a tour all over Spain! He’s a really nice person and a great worker. Such an inspiration for living life to the fullest!

Kimmie – I think the deaf part has something to do with it. He gets the best of everything without having to hear all that in the background. I kid I kid.

Well, Leggs we all have established that women lie and will keep secrets so I am sure if it did you would not admit to it. LOL

@Purple…good one, but if it had happened, I wouldn’t be ashamed to admit it. I was a handful even back then. Silly nonsense like that coming out of a boy’s mouth only stopped me in my tracks. Yes sir….gullible for d…. I never was (lol).
