  • Why would you want to have a friend that you couldn't be honest with your partner about? I think if you feel like you need to hide a friendship, you have deeper problems than just a friend problem.

  • why wouldn't you want your spouse to know you have friends? it sounds like either he is controlling or you are hiding something.

  • Why would you or why would you need to? I guess im not sure why you would need to or what the big deal is? Does he not approve of the friends?

  • There must be a reason for him to not want you to talk to them or see them. I don't understand the situation. If he's just being a controlling ass then you shouldn't be with him. If there's an understandable reason then I'd consider no longer being very close to them but no one should tell you who you can and can't be friends with.

  • sounds kinda sheisty. why do they have to be behind your partner's back?
    im sure you have a good reason or you wouldnt have asked.
    i say, if your partner doesnt allow you to have friends- thats a whole different issue. but if you just dont want him to know about your friend... it seems a bit odd.

  • If the partner is so jealous that the other can't even breathe then yes. Everyone needs a little piece of themselves for themselves.

  • No, it's not right. Hiding things from a partner that trusts you will only lead to trouble and more conflict. If you're in a healthy relationship with someone, that person's comfort and trust should come first.

    If you're partner is a mean SOB then who should really care.
