Things That Should Stay Between You and Partner

Sometimes you’ll turn to your friends or family for advice regarding your relationship, and that’s perfectly normal! But there are also things that you should keep to your relationship. If you can’t help but vent to someone, then, by all means, do so. You just need to remember that there are also things best kept to your own.

Fights

Fights are common in any relationship. No matter how long you’ve been together, you’ll always have disagreements from time to time. That’s why you should try your best to be selective about what you share with your family or friends. If you bad mouth your partner to your friends every time you have a fight, you’re perspective about him/her will change to the negative sooner or later! Of course, if the relationship becomes physically and emotionally abusive, that’s another story.

Financial problems

Another common problem in relationships is the difference in spending habits. If one of you is a frequent spender and one is really keen on saving, there’s bound to be disagreements. The thing is though, every couple will experience highs and lows when it comes to money. Though financial stability is important, there really are times when you’ll be frustrated with the money you have. In that case, don’t go around blaming your partner! Keep the problem between the two of you and trust that you can address financial issues together.

Problems with each other’s families

If your partner tells you something sensitive about their families, of course, you should keep it private in your relationship. If you have problems within your family, for example, and you’d want to get it off your chest, your partner is the person you usually go to. That’s because you’ve already established trust with each other. Surely, neither of you would want the other to go around talking to others about your family, right? It’s definitely one of those things you should simply respect as a couple.

Your goals as a couple

Another thing you should leave to yourselves is your goals with each other. Although it’s not necessarily prohibited, you should try not to expose too much about your dreams and goals as a couple. For example, planning to have kids. Usually, you’ll keep it to yourself until it’s actually confirmed. But really, as long as you and your partner share the same sentiments, that would be great for your relationship.

Anything related to sex

Sex is a very personal and intimate thing. Regardless of your partner being good or bad in bed, don’t go around telling others about it. It’s already pretty obvious that this is something that should be kept only between the two of you. Though it’s okay to brag about how loving you are as a couple, it’s really best to leave the intimate things out of the conversation. It’s a form of respect for each other and to the people you’re talking to as well.
