There are some things that happen inside a marriage that should only ever really stay within its confines.
What that essentially means is that not everyone should be allowed to gain access to to all aspects of your relationship.
You deserve to have privacy in your marriage and you are not obliged to reveal details about your love life to others.
It can sometimes feel tempting to share the intimate details of your relationship. But it’s highly important for you to understand that sharing those secrets can bring about immense stress and pressure to your relationship. You risk damaging what you and your partner have built for yourselves without really having anything to gain from it.
If you are curious as to what the things you must not share with anyone outside your marriage are, take a look at the list below:
1. Anything related to sex
Talking about anything sex-related should be completely off-limits. This means not talking about how often you have it, sexual fantasies, issues in the bedroom, and so on.
Sharing such details with someone else robs your relationship of its natural intimacy. Regardless of how big or smalls these details may be, talking with anyone else about topics related to sex besides your significant other is an act of deception.
Should sexual issues crate distance or any kind of friction in your relationship, therapeutic outlets exist that can aid you in resolving such issues. In addition, relationship experts and counselors are bound by confidentiality agreements to keep all related matters private.
2. Financial troubles
Many relationships around the world fall apart as a result of financial troubles, and you should never allow yourself to be so naive to believe that your own relationship will be immune to this. And while it’s certainly important for you and your partner to talk things out when you happen to face financial issues, it’s best to keep this topic private.
You don’t want to make this issue known to the public, letting everyone know of the financial burdens you two are carrying as a couple. Nothing but unwanted stress and pressure to your relationship will come out of this.
3. Fights and serious arguments
Apart from issues that involve physical or emotional abuse, relationship “fights” should best be kept private. Although your friend may be able to provide some advice and guidance on the issue at hand, the problem is – this takes your partner out of the equation.
4. Private pictures
This one might seem obvious to most people. However, not many people fully understand just how awful it would be to share intimate pictures of your partner with the public. Just because you think your other half looks fantastic in those nude selfies that they sent you does not give you the right to show them to anyone else.
This is a crushing betrayal. Hence it is always best to keep these private photos only to yourselves.
5. Anything said to you in confidence
This might sound like a cliché but trust is the backbone of a relationship. Most of the negative things that happen inside a relationship have some type of a cure, but betraying the trust of your spouse is perhaps the worst offense you could possibly commit – and it unsurprisingly difficult to cure.
And this is precisely why his or her most vulnerable thoughts and feelings entrusted only to you should never be revealed.
