If the prospects of marriage or a committed partnership, are increasingly becoming a reality, how much disclosure, is absolutely necessary, between partners? Apart from, say, financial or health (highly contested!) issues, what about personal history?
For instance, ladies, should your fiancé disclose to you that, in the distant past, he occasionally, went to brothels and paid for sex with harlots? Its seemingly insignificant, however, would you rather hear it from him or a sex-workers' careless chatter, at the hairdresser, unaware that you are married to him?
Personal history, seems to be a very grey area. Put differently, how well do couples (have to) know each other? Should they, as an absolute necessity, know every material thing about each other? There's private stuff and then there's secrets. Where do you draw the line?
Should your fiancé know that you, occasionally, had sex, for money, at a certain period of your life, for instance? Like many currently do, to fund their lifestyle, pay for schooling and such necessities. If your partner doesn't know that and somehow it creeps up, years later, do they have a right to be aggrieved?
It's just an interesting observation. There are so many couples that seemingly don't really know much about each other. To me, it's very strange. I'd hate to get to know about something, even seemingly insignificant, fortuitously, years later. It's my honest nature and somewhat fragile ego, I suppose. Then again, I'm not anyones' partner, so my knowledge of these things is very limited. Those in the know, enlighten me, please. How well can you know someone else, anyway?
Oh, as a parting shot, Man United fans aren't normal. Very weird people. Have a lovely weekend, good folks. Happy Friday!
