Guys Admit The Secrets They're Keeping From Their Brides

Whoever said marriage is about sharing everything was wrong.

Just because you say "I do," doesn't mean you have to confess all of your deepest darkest secrets.

Or, does it?

Maybe it's best to start your marriage off with a clean slate, admitting what you did wrong, regret, messed up in the past and the bad habits you can't still kick, before walking down the aisle.

Either way, you might think you know the person you're marrying just as well as you know yourself, but you may be wrong.

Everyone has secrets, and it's likely they're keeping some from you.

Just check out the secrets these guys don't ever want their bride-to-be to know:

1. I cheated on her.

I'm getting married in three weeks, and I don't want my girl to know I cheated on her. I was out one night and hooked up with an old girlfriend. It was a one-time deal, and after that moment, I felt terrible and realized to never do that again and never did — I swear. It happened during the first month of us being "official." I didn't know if it was going to work, but she seemed cool. I don't want her to know because she'll blow it out of proportion and probably call the wedding off.

— Casey, 32

 2. I love her more than anyone.

I know it sounds sappy and lame, but my wife-to-be is my everything.

I've never loved a girl more than her. If she found out, she'd let it get to her head, and I want her to think I don't have deep emotions.

– Lucas, 29

 3. I'm addicted to gambling.

I sort of have an addiction... to gambling. I've lost $5,000 this month. She thinks I travel a lot for my full-time sales job, but I secretly travel and hit up casinos. We have separate bank accounts now, so she doesn't know.

When we get married, I want to keep it like that. I will confess this, eventually, when I'm probably caught spending all our wedding cash at the poker table.

 4. I don't like her mom.

[My bride's] mother is a literal nightmare. She's the worst, and I can't stand her. She always threatens to make her daughter dump me if I don't do what she says. I had to spend $25,000 on an engagement ring because her mom made me. I didn't have the money and had to borrow it from family and friends. Sometimes, she shows up in my dreams, and I break out in cold sweats. But, I can't tell my fiancée this because it's rude to tell her I hate her mom so much.

— Seth, 32

 5. I'm scared to get married.

The honest truth is, I don't want to get married; I'm scared, actually. Marriage changes things. It makes your relationship feel stale. I didn't want to get hitched, but she gave me an ultimatum, and I didn't want to lose her.

I just wanted to be chill with her for another year, or two, before settling down and having kids.

— Tate, 26

 6. There was a stripper involved.

On my bachelor party, I got a lap dance by a stripper and was so drunk that I licked her boob. If my fiancée ever found out, it would be over. My friends have the video as blackmail, so now I'm stuck doing a ton of stupid things for them so they don't ever show her.

— Craig, 29

 7. I once kissed a guy.

I hope my fiancée never finds out that sophomore year of college, I got blackout drunk and made out with a guy.

It's not a big deal in my mind, but I'm sure she'd freak.

— Chris, 25

 8. I paid nothing for her ring.

The one thing I'm keeping from my woman is that I got her engagement ring for next to nothing. It was a ring a guy returned to the store, and they sold it to me half off. She thinks I spent $15K on it — yeah, right!

— Marco, 34

 9. I think we'll get divorced.

I don't think we'll stay together forever. Nothing lasts forever, and our love is no exception.

I agreed to marry her, because why not? But, I'm certain we'll get divorced one day. She thinks I'm in it forever, but I'm definitely not.
