Are you hiding something?
Honesty is the best policy when you’re dealing with your life partner. If you’re going to be living together, getting married, and having kids, you shouldn’t be keeping secrets from them lest they slip out later and come back to haunt you. Right or wrong, these people weren’t completely upfront about something, but they had to ‘fess up at some point.
My wife didn’t know until three years into our marriage that I once worked as the ballon animal guy in a Mexican restaurant. It came up in conversation one day and she commented on how dorky those guys are. So I went to the storage closet, got out my balloons and made here a dragon. (thepixelpaint)
I used to work at a coffee bar at a grocery store when I met him. He’d come in every day to order a chai from me, and the first time he came in I didn’t know how to make one, so yelled back into the kitchen for help. They yelled back “Just steam the mix and add milk.” So I did that, not realizing the milk should have been steamed as well. So basically gave him a slightly less than luke warm chai, which he proceeded to take home and microwave.
He did this every day for 8 months before we hooked up, and I made it wrong every time because he didn’t tell me. It wasn’t until two years later that he revealed this to me, I was so mad lol. It has now been 9 years, and we’ve been married almost two. (SageWayren)
Putting Up With It
We met in a game store where I played Warmachine once a week (a miniatures game). I was just getting to know the local player base, and he and I played a couple games together. Through our conversations and hanging out playing the game, we developed a friendship and eventually started dating.
It’s now seven years later, and we’ve been married for three. I only just found out that he never even played Warmachine before I met him. He saw me come in to play the game, impulse-bought someone’s old painted army, and learned the game (plus current talking points) before I came in again the next week. He pretended to be interested in it for years before he told me the truth: he hated that game. Hated the aesthetic, hated the minis, hated the engine. But he knew I loved it, so he put up with it for so long. (So_Motarded)
