Recently, my friend found out his fiance was a full-on lesbian (not bi, I mean lesbian), for three years. I guess it didn’t destroy the upcoming nuptials – they got married as planned.
It’s a scary question to ask, but do you ever really know someone? Most of us agree that you can’t tell your significant other everything about your past, unless you’re that person with a record so perfect you could run for president (even presidents don’t have the cleanest records).
Hidden in the personal past is the skeleton in the closet, prone to accidental discovery. It opens the can of worms: If they were hiding that from you, what else were they hiding?
The two most common sources that reveal a skeleton from the closet are mutual friends and their personal computer.
Below is a list of “skeletons in the closet” that people might hide from their significant other. Would any of these force you to reconsider the relationship if you found them out?
Crazy Sex Life
A friend of mine broke up with his girlfriend when he found out she once was “double teamed” by a couple of guys. I would be a bit intimidated if I found out my serious girlfriend had a wild sexual past. Sexuality is shared between two people, so I think couples should be forthright about their sexual past.
Suppose, one day, he forgets to “clear history” on the computer and you accidentally stumble upon his foot fetish site, or you click into the wrong folder on the computer and find pictures of him dressed as a baby. I’m sure a discussion would be in order.
