Do you keep secrets from your partner?

Once I kept a very dark secret from my partner and it almost tore us apart. Secrets are like splinters in the subconscious. They keep poking their ugly head up at all the wrong times. Secrets get in the way of intimacy and make it so that you don't feel you can trust anyone. After all if you are keeping secrets then others must be as well, right? As far as the secret bank account goes, that is never a bad idea. And, I wouldn't see it as a secret either. Not all guys are good with money, so it's up to the woman to be the financially savvy one in the relationship. If one partner is weak, then the other one has to be strong for the good of the relationship. Most times when we are doing well financially, I will tuck back a few hundred dollars in a secret location. And, then when finances are bad, I will "find" the money and my spouse will tell me how smart I am. He doesn't see it as being sneaky, just prepared. That extra money has fed our family at times when we were down to our last penny.

Yes, I have kept secrets from my husband. But they are the type that help us out. I've kept money secretly hidden in the past more than once. With this money we have gotten a car (an old used one :P), a motorcycle, and our computers. I even opened up a secret savings account in the past, until the bank sent a thank you notice in the mail for opening up the account and blowing my secret. :P Oh well, I hate keeping secrets from my husband anyway.
