  • I rarely talk to my friends about it. I just come on here and tell a bunch of strangers. That way there is no judgment when my friends/family are around my husband

  • I learned not to tell them's these same women that you confide in that later turn around and make a pass on your husband because they know he may go for it. Listen, my asshole cheated on me last 07/09 and I told one of my bf's about it...well, we went to her house for Christmas Eve and guess what...I found both their drunk assess making out and groping each other in an upstairs room. Worse yet, both my kids were there and they and all the other guest witnessed the entire fiasco. So, friends...there is no such thing...there are only acquaintences. My mother told me that years ago and I thought she was crazy...I guess the old bat wasn't that far out of her mind after all.

  • I talk to them all the time. I think we usually share information about our relationships. i must say that since I started talking to my friends I feel much better. I learn things from them that have made my relationship better. I also think it makes me feel like I am not alone when I hear them talk about what is going on in their relationships. For me it has been healthy and wonderful. I have great friends that I totally trust. I must say I do only talk to certain friends the ones that I am really close to.

    It has taken me a long time to find the right group and friends that I trust and am comfortable with. I think it is because of this and being older that I can talk with them.

  • One friend, who I don't talk to on a regular basis, and I share everything. We've been best friends for nine years and know one another really well, so we feel comfortable sharing that information. Outside of that friend I only have one friend who I confide in. Usually I talk to my mom or my oldest sister though, because they give the most honest advice and are always there to talk. My said friends aren't always there, because of their own lives, so I really rely on my mom and sister when I need advice. I talk about the good and the bad.

  • I tell everything! well, probably just the bad stuff that I need help with, but not alot of the good stuff

  • My sisters are my rock and they know most of my stuff. One friend of mine also. My mom always told me not to tell GFs too much - they are the ones that can hurt you later with the info that YOU gave them. She's right.

  • I talk about what I've learned. I don't crap about my husband. I wouldn't do it in front of him, I certainly won't do it when he's not around.

    First, because I believe that the attitudes we hold are transmitted through a variety of means that they're capable of noticing: body language, tone of voice, eye rolling, etc., and if anyone thinks they're seriously keeping their reaction to themselves should take up professional poker.... it's harder than you might think.

    Second, because I have no delusions about the 'privacy' of any conversation. If I'm not willing to say it to his face, he certainly does not need to hear it run through (and edited by) several other people's heads. Since he knows I don't talk crap about him, he knows that if he hears some, it's fiction.
