So I’ve been getting lots of questions about Mr. Lovely lately, and how he feels about this here little blog series on our marriage. Some folks ask if he’s cool with what I share, or if he knows what I’m going to write about before I write it, or if he thinks it’s too much.
I always kind of think it’s funny, because I would never, ever share something that I thought he wouldn’t be cool with. It’s not like I’m just tossing our dirty laundry out into the world for everybody’s entertainment. These posts are definitely calculated, y’all. And there have been a couple of posts that I ran past him first, just to be sure that it’s not something that he wants to keep just between the two of us. And to be honest, usually he would share way more than I would! (That crazy kid.) He’s sort of an open book, which is simultaneously awesome and terrifying. Ha.
But! All of this is to say, there are definitely things that I feel are “overshares” when it comes to talking about marriage. Do you have portions of your relationship that you consider nobody else’s business? I’m sorta of the opinion that there has to be a handful of those things — otherwise, what do you have between the two of you that’s sacred and just yours? And when other folks are talking about relationships, I tend to shy away when I feel like they’re oversharing — like I’m eavesdropping on something that I shouldn’t be, whether or not they are offering up the information.
So how about you? Do you hold a few things back when you share about your relationship? Or do you let it all hang out, ugly bits and all? And I’m also kind of curious about how you feel when other people overshare. Guys! Let’s talk it out. xoxo
