I am like gemgem and tell my husband what he needs to know. I can solve problems. I am not a whimpy kid. I do not behave like a baby because I am actually a grown woman who earns a living in the world. My husband, or indeed anyone, does not need to know my every waking thought. Big problems, like when the doctor says that you have a serious life-threatening condition, I tell him about. Small issues, like parking tickets or buying the wrong shoes, are too trivial to worry him with. Meeting old lovers, no. Planning a holiday, yes. New job, yes. Dental work, only if it affects the budget.
