For the married couples here on Fluther, a question about communication between spouses and their parents.
If a spouse shares something with his or her parent(s), and it has something specific to do with the marriage and asks the parent(s) to keep the conversation confidential, does anyone see that as being disloyal to your spouse?
Furthermore, if after talking to a parent and they break your confidence and talk to your spouse about the original conversation that you wanted to be kept confidential, isn’t that betraying your trust? That’s what it seems like to me.
I’m just curious what everyone’s views are on this.
