23 True Confessions From Married Women That'll Make You Say, "Just Whoa."

To have and to withhold?

We asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us the secret they'd never tell their husband or partner, and the responses range from the 'omg' to the 'O.M.F.G.':

1. "When we were first dating, I drunk texted my (now) husband asking him to come over for a booty call. Before he could respond, I texted 'nevermind.' To this day, he says that moment of 'playing hard to get' was the moment he knew I was the one he wanted to be with. But he doesn't know that I said 'nevermind' because I had actually sent the same text to two other guys, and another one replied first."

2. "That his favorite meal that I from the restaurant down the street."

3. "That I hate my engagement and wedding rings."

4. "My husband doesn't know that I actually watch porn and masturbate more often than he does — sometimes even right next to him while he sleeps!"

5. "That I once faked a family emergency and instead went to Dairy Queen to get ice cream and hide from the kids."

6. "When my husband and I have a fight and aren't speaking, I secretly turn off the wifi so that he is forced to come downstairs and talk to me."

7. "Sometimes I'll secretly watch something by myself that I was supposed to watch with my husband later because I want to watch it without having to cuddle or share my snacks."

8. "That it doesn't really hurt to keep sex going after I orgasm like I tell him it does...I'm just over it by that point."

9. "That I keep a list of the hilarious things he says in his sleep."

10. "I once hired a cleaning crew to clean our house and took the credit for it."

11. "Sometimes I put on makeup, do my hair, and get dressed, and then watch ASMR videos of men eating and pretend I'm on a date."

12. "I'm the one who changes the sheets, and I almost always put the cheaper pillowcases on my husband's pillows, while I get the luxurious ones."

13. "That I pluck my nose hair."

14. "How many people I actually slept with before him."

15. "My husband is very irresponsible with money, so when we need to save for something, I lie and tell him we have less than we actually do, so that he doesn't know the money is there to spend."

16. "When my in-laws come into town, I pretend I have to go into the office, so I don't have to see them."

17. "Sometimes I call him and tell him my texts aren't sending, just to have an excuse to hear his voice."

18. "Sometimes I buy an Amazon gift card from the grocery store so that the money I spend counts towards groceries, even though I use it to buy music or clothes."

19. "My husband thinks I'm a much heavier sleeper than I am. If the dog gets restless in the middle of the night, I lie perfectly still until he gets up to take her outside, then I pretend in the morning that I didn't hear her."

20. "That when we first met, I only slept with him to help my best friend get closer to his brother. But hey — we ended up together!"

21. "That I'm a ghostwriter for a famous newspaper columnist."

22. "We went on a vegan diet together and he was really committed. But I always cheated on my lunch break and told him I ate a salad."

23. "One day, my husband came home in a terrible mood, looking for his leftover pizza. But I had thrown it out already earlier in the day. So I waited until he went out to walk the dog, then I took it out of the trash and put it on a plate for him. He ate every bite."
