No, I don’t have experience with it personally. But if it was me, I think I’d still tell my SO. I actually do have some deep, dark family secrets (they aren’t that bad, but not something our family is necessarily proud of) but my husband knows them. He is family and my confidante. It doesn’t sound like you’re going to get your mom to understand this, but maybe next time just don’t let on that he knows. She will cool down I’m sure.

I feel you girl, my mom drives me crazy too!

I don’t have the same background as you, but I don’t keep secrets from my fiance, period.

Ugh, sorry you’ve gotta deal with that!

I agree, you shouldn’t keep secrets, any kind, from someone you’re planning on marrying.  There shouldn’t be any secrets between you.

My Fiance has told me his deep dark past (ok, well, I managed to figure part of it out without trying… or wanting to) and I accept it and don’t care.  He knows all my dark dirty secrets (not as bad as his, though, lol) and I don’t care what he knows about my family.  He also tells me stuff about his family.

And… if you’re going to be married… doesn’t that mean he’ll be a part of your family and in order to protect your family, he’ll need to know what you told him? 

Maybe you could use something like that towards your mom?
