Family Affair

Four things couples should not disclose about their marriage

Marriage is a lifetime relationship between two individuals that requires a lot of commitment, intimacy, mutual understanding, accountability and privacy to make it work.
Speaking of privacy, you will quite agree with me that there are some issues couples are not supposed to share with a third party because of the sensitivity involved. Most relationship experts have advised couples to refrain from sharing certain confidential information with others, which includes their neighbours, colleagues, family members and even friends for the fear of being betrayed.
Regarding this article, we shall be discussing a few things romantic partners aren’t supposed to disclose about their marriage in other not to have a reason to regret in future. See them below.
1. Money issues
Money is among the sensitive domestic issues couples should not disclose to others, most especially when it is on the negative side. Trust me, the financial status of your partner isn’t the business of your neighbours or friends; as it may be used against you when you least expect it. Discussing the financial situation in your marriage is a move that might be detrimental to your relationship when revealed to the wrong person, that is the more reason you should keep it private. If you need financial aid, seek advice from an objective party rather than involving everyone in your financial affair.
2. Things they both share in private
There are different intimate things romantic partners share which should not be discussed with a third party. Revealing to your friends, neighbours or close associates the confidential information your partner entrusted to you might hamper the commitment in your relationship when your partner finds out. Hence, treat all confidential matters with strict confidentiality.
3. Details of a misunderstanding or fight
It is imperative to understand that no one is perfect; not you, your partner, friends and even your parents, that is the more reason you should be patient with your partner and treat every domestic issue with tolerance. Giving the details of your misunderstanding with your partner to others might breed room for betrayal which might affect the peace and harmony in your marriage. Instead of complaining about your partner’s flaws to everyone who cares to listen, why not be more patient with them, have a dialogue together or better still, seek the help of a relationship expert or counsellor? This will help improve your relationship significantly.
4. Partner’s vulnerability or past mistakes
Probably your partner stole in the past, or maybe they were involved in a crime or something they aren’t proud to tell others. Believe me; all those were in the past and your partner wouldn’t want those details to be revealed. Discussing your partner’s shortcomings or mistakes with others will reduce the worth and respect people have for them. Many a time, information of this sort are usually made viral which might directly affect your partner’s integrity and reputation.
