when it comes to things that your friends and or families have shared with you? There are a few things I do share but not things they have told me in confidence and have asked me not tell anyone including my husband. Do you share or keep it to yourself? or tell someone else? Thanks in advance!

Usually if the friend would ask me not to even tell my husband, I would have to say, we don't keep things from one another and he won't repeat it. I just don't keep things from my husband. But I would warn them before they told me so if they didn't want me to repeat it to my husband then they shouldn't tell me but they always said oh, I understand and would tell me anyway.

When it comes to friends, I keep their secret and obey as they say. But, if it is doing some harm to the other people, then I don't. When it comes to family, people do share some things with me which I don't reveal normally.

I don't necessarily tell my significant other everything about my friends or family. There are some things that told to me in confidence that I keep confident. It really depends on what the issue is. If the issue is going to change the view of my friend/family member in my significant other's eyes, I usually keep that information to myself, especially if asked to.

You know I do normally talk to my husband about everything including things that a friend has told me. For one thing my husband would never repeat it and for another he will help me figure a situation out. There are things however that just does not need to be told. Often they are my own thoughts and they belong to me. One other instance I might not share with my husband is when one of the boys has told me something and I know that it would cause friction between them and their father, and it just is not important enough to cause that. Otherwise he is my best friend and I can talk to him about anything.
