Secrets And Privacy…
Keeping secrets in a relationship is a common trend these days but this can be destructive to both sides. There is a difference between privacy and secrets in a relationship. However, a partner can maintain the right to privacy, only if the topic they are keeping to themselves does not negatively affect the other partner in any way. Moreover, secrets in a relationship can negatively affect your well-being and the way you interact with each other as a couple. Secrets in a relationship can be related to infidelity, financial problems and not wanting to be judged.
