2573762303_365ac020f8_zMarried people should have no secrets. Have you heard someone say that? It could be debated till blue in the face, but the fact is, many marriages do have secrets and they’re not always bad. Here are some examples from reddit. For more check this thread.

1. “That he hated the cologne I have been buying him for five years. He still wore it all the time but didn’t want to hurt my feelings.”

2. “That he had an 8 year old son with a woman he slept with one time.”

3. “That she set up a separate account and started throwing money into it. She started saving the day I proposed and kept saving until after we’d been married for 3 years. … She saved up the same amount of cash I spent on her engagement ring and surprised me with my dream motorcycle. Dream bike, dream wife, dream life.”

4. “I didn’t find out my husband was molested by his older cousins until after we were married. He never told me but his Mother did. I thought there was something funny going on when he wouldn’t talk about those cousins. It took me years to tell him I was molested as a child and again as teen so I know the shame and pain so I never told him I know. There are some things still can’t say to him about it so I understand.”

5. “Herpes. Wish I was kidding. Found out from her obstetrician when she was six months pregnant and we went in for an appointment and his first question to her was, ‘How’s the herpes, any flare ups?'”

6. “She started saving for our wedding 1 week after we met.”

7. “That he likes to watch sports. It’s such a silly thing to hide. He even sneak watched it for the first year or so into our marriage.”

8. “I’ve been married for almost 12 years, together more than 16, and found out roughly three years ago that my wife has/still suffers from bulimia. It was so bad a few years ago that she had a nervous breakdown and we sent her to a program to cope with the disease. While there are relapses and I expect she will deal with this the rest of our lives together, she’s doing great. She’s been dealing with this disease since high school, and mostly because she dealt with many insecurities as a result of my mother-in-law’s inability to give positive feedback. She hid this from me for years, and while many may think that bulimics do this for the sake of vanity, I assure you it is not. My wife, while beautiful on the inside and out, still deals with this daily….even a few days ago. We have three children and overwhelm them with praise about inner/outer beauty to ensure the same mistake isn’t made again.”

Did you or your spouse hide something from each other while you were dating and not reveal it till after marriage? If so, what was it?
