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 anonymous confessions from men about the things their wives don’t know about them.
26. In the closet
Gotta be honest with her and with yourself.
Exactly how good of friends are they?
24. Dirty work
This sentence made me gag a little when I read it.
23. Saving up
I hope you’re joking about this.
22. Secret life
Don’t you think she’d probably be pretty excited to know all that?
21. On the edge
Obviously way too close for comfort.
20. Down in the dumps
It’s possible to feel isolated even when you’re have someone.
19. Bad to the bone
Sounds like you’ve thought through the cost/benefit analysis.
18. A tryst in time
This is quite a bombshell.
I do the same thing with my cat so I totally get it.
16. Man’s man
Do you think she would care if she did know?
15. Third degree
In other words, you have fantasies.
14. Say my name
To be fair, none of us know either.
13. Thrifty business
A penny saved is a penny hidden.
12. Baby mine
I’m sure this will work out just great…
11. Virtual reality
Gotta put it on pause, I guess.
Well, that’s not exactly a fortune, is it?
9. Past encounters of the 3rd kind
I feel like there’s more to this story.
8. Unholy thoughts
Better hope Jesus doesn’t tell on you.
7. Quiet desperation
But where are the tears coming from?
6. The past is present
You should probably come clean about this.
5. Grown ups
4. Under where?
Hasn’t she noticed that they keep going missing?
3. Master of my domain
Boy, marriage sounds like a real hoot.
2. Pigging out
I do this every day, so.
1. Comic commitment
BAM! POW! BANKRUPTCY!
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?
