Can you keep a secret??

When someone asks you "not to tell anyone" do you still tell? Your husband? Best friend? Sister?

  • I don't tell anyone if someone tells me a secret. I will ask if it's ok to share with my hubby.

  • i tend to think the smartest thing to do is to tell my husband BUT most likely if im having a discussion with someone, he's right there trying to be a snoop and when i get off the phone there's a bunch of questions coming out of him like a casino machine. I just recently learned that he cant keep to himself when i talk about things he disagrees with so no more secrets for him.

  • Wow! We must be thinking alike. I almost asked the same question. I can keep a secret as long as it's not something about what I got my husband for a present. Then I'm all mouth. To him of all people. LOL

  • I can keep a secret. However, most of the time if I'm told, "I'll tell you something, but you can't tell anybody." I will say, "Then don't tell me" because I have no secrets from my husband. Also, I do not want to promise someone that I won't tell something and then risk letting it slip out. Or even worse, what if someone tells you something they don't want told, but it needs to be told? You can tell me anything you want to tell me, but I will decide whether or not it needs to be shared with somebody else. Secrets usually mean something shady is going on, and I want no part of that.

  • I might share it with DH, but usually dont. But I really dont have anybody to tell secrets to.
