If a friend tells you a secret, do you tell your DH?

For me, it depends on what it is. I know it would never go past my DH but some things he doesn't need to know. That said, my friends see us as a unit and assume that he knows anything they tell me. If they told me not to tell him, I would respect their wishes, unless it somehow would have a detrimental impact on him (I can't think of anything that would fall under this?).

I'm sorta the same. Reality is, there hasn't been much in our time together that was that "secretive".

Just yesterday my mom asked me to keep some family drama from him, but it was too late. She dealt with it, and there was really no reason to protect it from him except that she wouldn't want anything to slip out at the wrong time...

Still, it's not generally an expectation that I'd keep things from him.

Depends on the friend and the secret.

If its an online friend and its something neat like a pregnancy then Ill spill the beans cuz I can guarantee he isnt gonna get online and hunt down my groups just to tattle LOL.

If its something deeper than my lips are sealed unless they give me permission to tell DH.

~My thanks to *Kiliki* for the siggy and Lucy S for the blinkies~

No, I can't. I tell him everything (even when he couldn't care less, lol). Even when it's a good secret, I have a hard time!

I agree with Hillarie. It depends on the friend and the secret.

I usually tell DH because I know it is safe with him. Everyone assumes I would tell him anyways. I currently work with my husband's bestfriends soon to be wife..so I kind of think I may have to start not telling him certain things..just so he doesn't let them slip..like things she says but doesn't really want her husband to know..

Depends on the friend and the secret. He's pretty trust-worthy though so I know he won't tell anyone anything I tell him about someone else.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.
