32 Secrets People Are Keeping from Their Spouses

The foundation of a good marriage is keeping secrets — as long as they’re innocent. You drunkenly peed all over the floor? Blame granddad. You ate the entire package of Oreos? Sure, you “forgot to buy them.” The real reason you quit the master’s program at school was because of your connection to a murder? Wait a second, dude… What the hell?

Uh, on that note, these Redditors hid behind anonymity and shared some of the secrets they’ve been hiding from their better halves — a surprising amount of which involve farting. Who knew that so many people think being honest about a little toot could cause a stink in a marriage?

I also accidentally popped a leg off of my

rastroboy 156d My mother-in-law came to visit us and she and my wife were home when I arrived home from work. Apparently her mother was not feeling well because she was taking her temperature. When I looked in the medicine cabinet I realized that the oral thermometer was still in the cupboard and the anal thermometer for my son was missing.
