It’s not in many women’s nature to be completely candid. Women and secrets go together like football and knee surgery. Here are some of the kinds of things you might never, ever find out about the Little Lady.
She might have decided ‘I’m with him now. That side of my life is over’. And it might be over. You might want it not to be, because…hmm! Then again, that could also be the reason your sex life is so awful. Or why she left you for the meter-maid.
Sometimes when the postman rings, he rings it just right. And she wants him to ring it again, and again, and again…
Secret Bank Accounts
Your wife’s mother might well have raised her to keep a bank account of her own, for whatever reason. If you find out about it, resist doing The Guy Thing and assuming it’s an exit strategy. More likely, it’ll be used to bail one of your kids out of jail one day you don’t need to know about.
Unresolved Relationship Issues
Most men think of women as constantly talking about relationship problems. It’s become the source of a thousand jokes. But the real problems might be the ones she ISN’T talking about.
Her Criminal Past
Somehow, we always expect this from guys, not ladies. But women had lives before they met you, and sometimes those lives are, well, troublesome.
How Strong She Really Is
Many women, especially those raised in repressive households, might have some tremendous talent. However, they might have been told they need to hide it, or they’ll scare good men away.
Former Boyfriends And Ex-Husbands
Yeah, well. You’re a good street-fighter, aren’t you? You have eyes in back of your head, right? So stop worrying!
Some women saw dating you as an escape from their religious family. Once the wedding is over, that leaves you with a bunch of oddly religious in-laws. Some women figured you’d just get used to it. And some figured they’d convert you… later.
Some women who have a family history with a certain illness might keep it to themselves. So might some women with an actual disease. She’ll share it with her doctor, but can’t bring herself to tell you.
