I would never tell my wife about my girl friend or my girl friend about my wife.

I like to keep things simple. :)

Re: What would you not tell your wife, or girlfriend.
 
Do you have something on your mind specifically? There's nothing I wouldn't tell my wife. If I don't trust her ***COMPLETELY***, then why would I want to spend the rest of my life with her? Well, there ARE some things that I just don't mention, like what I had for breakfast, the car that cut me off in traffic, or that woman that hit on me at the gig last night...

Re: What would you not tell your wife, or girlfriend.
 
Here's my take on this and I've been married for twenty years.

Yes, there are things I don't tell my wife. Here is why. I still have a life, I have the life I had when she met me and the life I had when we got married and that life didn't go anywhere after I got married.

Now, that life is mine, it is nobody else's. And I see no reason to be convinced that my wife would prefer that I stop living that life, even though there are parts of that life that have nothing to do with her.

I can tell you right now that my wife doesn't tell me everything she does for one simple reason: it's none of my business. I don't want my wife to become any of the sterotyped things a wife/companion is supposed to be. When I met her she was a very interesting individual and I like her just that way to this very day.

She's her own person and I am my own person. And we sure do have a hell of a lot of fun when we hang out, just the two of us.

Re: What would you not tell your wife, or girlfriend.
 
A middle aged couple are sitting in a nice restaurant having a nice dinner.

A younger woman walks up, and gives the husband a long deep kiss, then says "see you later" as she walks away.

The wife is furious and demands to know what just happened.

The husband says "that's my mistress".

The wife exclaims "that does it, I want a divorce".

The husband replies "OK, we can get a divorce. But that means no more European vacations. We'd have to sell off the vacation cabin, and our luxury cars. No more diamond jewelry at Christmas. And this would mean we'd have to get rid of our nice house and each get small apartments."

Just then, one of their old male friends walks by with a young lady around his arm.

"Who is that??" the wife asks.

"Oh, that's his mistress" the husband replies.

The wife thinks for a second, and the says "ours is prettier" and goes back to eating.

*ba-doom*

I like this, as I'm very, VERY libertarian. No one has a higher claim to you than you, yourself. We exist as individuals and define our own relationships...there is no standard.

I don't always tell everything to my partner. Why should I? Only the important and vital things.

In a movie called "Blown Away", Max O'Bannon gives his son some advice and says, "she's your wife, not your priest. Tell her only what she NEEDS to know!"

I've carried that with me.

This was meant to be a light harted attempt at humour.

So when does one person decide its a troll tread, does Average speak for everyone else.

If you all think that way, then post your thoughts on this line, and if the majority all think that way, then i shall stop my attempt at humour.

Bloody meat loaf, sort your life out for the real world.

Even better, why not let Bernard decide if he thinks its a Troll Thread or not, as Average you may just have the personality, of a very bitter and twisted man who just wants to spread misary around the world.

Try Smiling from time to time, it does help.

It certainly didn't seem like a troll thread to me until this ^^^^ post. As a thread poster, you have to accept that people are going to respond the way that THEY are going to respond. If you have any expectations of how you think they *should* respond, you're setting yourself up for severe disappointment.

Calling other people names or insulting them is totally uncalled for. In fact, I think it's against the forum rules...

And as for me being insulting to people, who are demeaning me,

"for their own purpose"? "who are demeaning me"? I think you're reading WAY too much into someone ELSE'S attempt at humour.

This is generally a fun-loving, peaceful, CIVIL forum. Let's try to keep it that way.

I'm trying to figure out how Average is implying that this is a troll thread. Also, if you started this thread in an attempt at being light-hearted and funny, why are you chewing people out. Your actions are very confusing to me.

I don't wear my wedding ring, either. Chicks don't like to see that kind of stuff when they're watching you on stage.

I still haven't told my wife about my "special piercing", but my girlfriend loves it...

I can't wear a wrist watch. I haven't worn one since I took up drumming in my teens. I don't like how it makes my wrists seem unbalanced.

But I do always wear my wedding ring. I feel naked without it.

It's more harder but better to just be out in the open with everything. It's very freeing but also leads to exposed nerves on both sides. I'll take that over sneakiness any day. I spent too many years being like that (sneaky) and I won't do it anymore. Feelings get hurt no matter what, because the truth ALWAYS comes out, but I retain my integrity by not lying and sneaking. So now I don't hide anything, I own it. Not that there's a whole lot to own, but I'm no angel either. Neither is she. It's the most honest relationship I've ever been in.

It isn't a matter of sneakiness or of hiding anything, though. It's just that I see no reason to stop being the person I was when I met my wife. That's the guy she married, after all.

I very much like not knowing every single thing that my wife, Nicky, is doing or thinking about. That way there are more surprises in our marriage. She's a fully-functioning individual with her own individual thoughts and experiences, and so am I. Every once in awhile one of us will feel like talking to the other about those thoughts and experiences, the way that close friends do.

But in certain ways she's still as much a mystery to me as she was on the night we first met.

I am not defined by my marriage and neither is she. Maybe that's why we've managed to stay married for twenty years. Our anniversary is October 4, this coming Monday. We're going to a Thai restaurant, and she's paying.

Re: What would you not tell your wife, or girlfriend.
 
Haha, this thread is really funny!
The OP so desperately wants it to be light and humorous, but his posts break his own rules - and the thread actually gets deeper than many other thread.
Plus the OP so strongly assures this wasn't a troll thread, but his own posts make him look like one :).

On a serious side (sorry woz), I think I'm with Larry. Although it's mostly the harder way, I believe the relationships profits and gets stronger when the partners are quite honest and open to each other.

But I'm also with Jay, both individuals are individuals, and I believe the relationship actually is healthier when both have a strong character, and not kind of dependent on each other.

Of course I don't actually have one, so that does make it easier.

I can tell my girlfriend/wife anything that I want because her imaginary hands are intangible and when she slaps me in the face with them, I feel no pain because of their lack of substance.
