7 Things You Shouldn’t Tell Your Better Half

When it comes to your significant other or spouse, it can be tempting to open up about your entire life to them.

It is natural to want to tell them everything and completely immerse yourself in each other’s lives because they are your person.

While this may sound romantic to some, doing everything and sharing everything with your partner can be detrimental.

When there is no longer any mystery, things begin to change.

Because you become so open and close to your partner, the spark can sometimes fade, which is something many couples wish they could keep.

If you want to keep some allure in your relationship, you should keep some things for yourself.

When you’re on your toes, this can help you maintain that “first date” feeling, that spark or chemistry.

Check out these things you should not share with your better half to keep that feeling alive.


This may go without saying for some, while others may find it cringe-worthy.

Sharing toothbrushes, on the other hand, is strictly prohibited. Sharing a toothbrush at your first sleepover was cute and endearing, but it’s best left as a one-time thing.

Using the same toothbrush will only spread more germs between you two.


This is a sensitive subject in relationships, and it has been known to spark some drag-out brawls.

Sharing passwords isn’t always a bad thing, and it can show your partner that you’re trustworthy.

What matters here is the intent behind the password request.

If you don’t trust your partner’s actions online or on their phone, you have much bigger issues to deal with.

Sexy tales

If you have the type of relationship where everything is out in the open, you might enjoy hearing about your partner’s previous relationships.

However, this can be a breeding ground for potentially intense emotions such as jealousy, hurt, shame, and shock.

It might be best to leave the discussion about your previous bedroom behavior in the past.

Your thoughts on their parents

Talking about future or current inlaws can be difficult.

Dealing with your partner’s parents can be difficult, especially if they are difficult to deal with.

However, if your thoughts on them are less than stellar, you may want to keep that information to yourself.

Nobody wants to hear their person slam their mother or father.

Photos from your vacation with your ex

This should go without saying, but your current partner is unlikely to be interested in hearing about your skiing trip with your cute ex from eight years ago.

If you’re in a happy, long-term relationship, this shouldn’t even be a consideration.

Because, if this is the case, why do you have any photos of you and your ex? That’s something to think about.

Insecurity or jealousy

When it comes to feelings like jealousy, it all depends on your relationship with your partner.

Sharing negative emotions is not a bad thing, but you don’t want to make your partner responsible for your insecurities and jealousy.

Unless your partner is acting in a way that justifies your jealousy, you may be experiencing these feelings solely from a personal space.

Instead of simply telling your partner, do internal work to address your feelings of jealousy.

Physical functions

No matter how close you get in a relationship, some things should remain a mystery, including bodily functions in the bathroom.

You’ll never regain that spark if you share physical space with your partner while he or she is using the restroom.
