  • We were teens when we got together, and friends before a couple. He knows EVERYTHING. Including my "dirty little secrets".

  • I originally told him that I slept with 10 guys. After 8 years of marriage I got mad one day for some reason and decided to take revenge on him by throwing the truth into his face and told him that I really slept with 35-40 guys before I met him. Not sure, I lost the count. He didn't blink an eye. He said it doesn't matter what was in the past. I didn't notice any negative change in his behavior towards me and he didn't bring it up since. Guess we're ok, glad to get it out there.

  • Yes, we had the convo at the beginning of our relationship 4 years ago (we've been married 2). It's never caused any problems for us (even with his number being like 3 times as high as mine, lol) and don't think it will. Our past relationships shape who we are today, but they're in the past for a reason!

  • Over the span of our 25 year marriage. My husband has never asked about my past relationships, and I have never asked about his.

    I don't know his reasons for never inquiring.. But my reasons are this. That's his past, and has nothing to do with us and our present. So there's no need for me to know about them. And I've just never really been curious about them.

    If he were to ever ask. I'd be totally honest with him when answering his questions. I have nothing to hide when it comes to my past.

    Whether or not sharing that type of information is a negative or a positive in a relationship. Totally depends on the people in that relationship.

  • Yes! If your serious about your relationship, both of you need to lay everything out on the table. Whats the point of getting serious with someone if your not being honest? You should exspect nothing less but the truth from your partner in return. Best wishes from Renee'
