It’s almost like luring a cat with milk and then once it gets into your trap, you give it something else entirely. Lay it all on the table. Nothing can be covered forever. It will be worse if they get to hear it from a third party, especially the ones with wrong intentions. Your spouse won’t believe your second version from what they have been told by a third party since you hid it in the first place.

There’s nothing to be afraid of. Perfect love casts out fear and love covers all things says the word of God. If you have decided not to do this before reading this article, do well to reconsider your decision. Regardless of the gravity of the issue, prayerfully let them know. In the end, God’s perfect will, will be done.

So, what do you think? How have you been affected by a secret covered by your significant other. Share your story!
