We all keep secrets in relationships. Some of them are pretty small and inconsequential, others would be earth-shattering if they were to be found out. Trying to decide what needs to come out into the light in a marriage, and what’s OK to keep as a personal secret is one of the tougher things to navigate. But some cases are a little clearer than others.
Check out these 12 anonymous confessions from men about the things their wives don’t know about them.
12. In the closet
Gotta be honest with her and with yourself.
Exactly how good of friends are they?
10. Dirty work
This sentence made me gag a little when I read it.
9. Saving up
I hope you’re joking about this.
8. Secret life
Don’t you think she’d probably be pretty excited to know all that?
7. On the edge
Obviously way too close for comfort.
6. Down in the dumps
It’s possible to feel isolated even when you’re have someone.
5. Bad to the bone
Sounds like you’ve thought through the cost/benefit analysis.
4. A tryst in time
This is quite a bombshell.
I do the same thing with my cat so I totally get it.
2. Man’s man
Do you think she would care if she did know?
1. Third degree
In other words, you have fantasies.
It’s strange to think that by now, at least a few of these have inevitably come out. We can only wonder what the aftermath was. Stay strong out there, and fight for the ones you love, even if things get tough.
Are you married? Do you keep anything from your spouse?
