    Re: Secrets from Potential Spouse

    Yeah it's better not to keep secrets. Doesn't mean you disclose it in the first meeting but should do it sooner if you plan to disclose. Like before things become serious otherwise there may be complications.

    What is people's experience with the incident of spouse finding out after marriage some secret. How does this affect the marriage. Also what in your opinion should be disclosed and what shouldn't.

    But it's a sin according to others. No different from zina which apparently you must hide

    I disagree. He can keep anything a secret. Even the worst things. Otherwise you are just picking and choosing

    Same with rape and other things. Because that's also a sin. So the person does not have to reveal that either.

    So some things must be said and others not according to you. But that is dependent on if the person sees it as a sin.

    And sins are sins. They could vary from adultery to masturbation or missing fajr.

    And regardless of whether the sin is major or minor. Islamically, we are told to conceal our sins.

    It doesn't matter if it's adultery or being a porn addict.

    Obviously. If the sin has a lingering affect ie child out of wedlock or bankruptcy/debt due to past gambling addiction then they should be revealed.

    Shoplifting is ok but zina is not??

    Islamically, theft comes under the major sins in islam, and so does zina.
    Thats clearly not what I said...

    I guess if it's something he has repented from/ a weakness he has 'conquered' to a certain extent I wouldn't want to know.

    But something like committing zina before marriage cannot be hidden especially if he wants a chaste woman. I know a man can however hide it from his wife but its still better to be truthful to your spouse. Why keep something like that from each other? A marriage is supposed to be based on trust.

    I believe what matters most is who u r right now , not what u did like 10 years ago or smth
    anyways ,a girl with bad history still attracts some guys , believe it or not and they pious .
    not saying its ok or not but stating facts^^
    True, it happens a lot. Especially considering the times we live in and where we live a lot of people have a bad past unfortunately.

    Still think it's easier for a guy to get away with a bad past in comparison to a woman though because of societal views.

    Very good point.

    Also in general, the potential future is what matters if the past whatever is already dead. There's really no deception about it and most normal people do not ask someone directly for them to be put on the spot. You will gather what is known from their reputation, and that is enough to give a positive/negative impression.

    You are right in that the past should be hidden but if a guy wants someone chaste then that is his right. Assuming he is chaste himself.

    Its true that a person has repented but that does not change the fact that the sin they commited can have an effect on the life of someone else. For example, a person has an STD. And then decides to keep it a secret although repents

    I don't know how it works in other cultures, but a 'potential' in my view is someone who you may or may not marry
    why would you spill out everything to such a person? if it's something major that will affect the marriage then yes it shouldn't be hidden
    but some people seem to be after every little detail

    the past is irrelevant, unless some characteristics or traits from the past are still present. what matters is what the person is like now.
    (I'm not including things like zina here as this depends on other things)

    And please don't look down upon others. It's a serious matter.
    Fine

    I apologise if i offended anyone in the process, i got wound up a bit.

    I'd still advise against it and have no sympathy for those who end up in a terrible position because of it though.

    If they are ok with it fine. But they make it seem like those that reject those that repent are guilty or something

    We are allowed choices
