I tell him everything. The people I tell my secrets to, I trust them and their other half with my secret. The people that entrust their secrets to me know I'll tell DP and they're cool with that.

ETA my DH is probably better at keeping secrets than me. But I've had a very close friend go through something extremely traumatic and embarrassing in her marriage. DH knows her husband. I didn't tell him as I knew my friend was embarrassed enough and it just wasn't something he would want or need to know. She didn't ask me not to; I just didn't see any reason to tell (we live in another city from them now so he won't be seeing them often).

Just to make sure we're all clear on 'secret'- you guys are saying that if someone told you 'please don't tell anyone', you would tell your partner? What if someone said 'please don't tell anyone, not even DH'.? After they'd told you? Would you still tell them?

I tell DH everything....even things that others ask me not to tell him. He's never ever said anything to anyone else or to that person who had asked me not to tell. I love DH & trust him completely. I love that I can talk to him about things & that I know he will keep those things to himself & not gossip about anyone.

If someone prefaced something with "can I tell you something but you have to promise not to tell DP" I would ask them not to tell me, as depending on what it is, I might not be able to keep it from DP.
If it was something like your herpes example, sure I wouldn't tell.
But there are other things I wouldn't keep secret, because they're too much for me to handle myself.
My friends know, and we all have the same expectation so I can't really imagine myself in a situation where someone asks me not to tell DP something.
I don't tell her everything. But I can, and would if I needed to.

Wow, it really all depends what sort of things we're talking about. I have once or twice not said something that a friend had asked me to keep confidential. My friends haven't ever really had any huge secrets, just general things. My really close friends know & don't mind...just like they've also told me they tell their partners things that I've mentioned to them...no ones really ever had an issue with it. DH is the only one I tell. I don't tell anyone else.
