My husband and I went to different colleges in the same city, and while I didn’t know him, I knew and dated a couple of guys from his school at the time. Cut to last week, when he told me about an old college friend who was moving back and would be at this party we were going to. Welp, as it turns out, I slept with this guy! When we were introduced at the party, we both awkwardly said hi and pretended we had never met, but I feel weird lying to my spouse. What should I do from here on out? Do I play dumb or do I fess up?
For the most part, I encourage folks to keep mum about past sexual history. After all, there are very few circumstances in which opening up your Little Black Book will provide any kind of benefit. But...there are always exceptions to every rule, and this just might be one of them.
Here are the two reasons why I think you should tell your husband about your former flame.
