    Should you keep secrets from your partner?

    Should you keep secrets from your partner for their own good, or is secrecy always corrosive to relationships?

    I think secrets can be corrosive.  I am an open book when it comes to my husband, I have no secrets. I can't imagine having something that I want to keep from him.  Because I want his trust and he wants mine, we do not keep secrets.

    No. If your partner would happen to find out, then it could ruin the trust in your relationship. They may think if you are keeping one secret, then how many more are you keeping.

    If you keep a secret then your partner finds it out, you are in deep, dangerous trouble. It could ruin the relationship just because you were keeping a secret. No, you shouldn't keep secrets.

    It depends. Some secrets are kept to protect the ones we love. For example, my wife is unaware of my secret life as a covert operative for a US anti-terrorism organization known as the Omega Sector. She also doesn't know that my best friend, Tom Arnold, is actually my partner in the field. This is all meant to protect her and my daughter, Eliza from the nation's enemies.

    To me, it's not keeping a secret. It's just with-holding information. There are somethings people don't need to know.

    I think honesty is best. Assume that if the relationship continues long-term, they may find out anyway, and that will be far worse than whatever reaction they might have to your telling them the secret in the first place.

    Secrets are worth keeping if you know it cause a problem in oyur relationship and  most couples don't tell their partners every detail.
