We don't have a rough relationship, but if we did, I'd keep the issues between the two of us. No use bringing other people into my marriage.

I was in an unhappy relationship and everyone knew we were unhappy because we were miserable. It's pointless to stay in a relationship like that, whether you fake being happy or you don't.

I ALWAYS keep my relationship to myself. Always have. In previous relationships when people who knew I was dating asked me "Omg, what happened.? I'd always be like, "IDK. Shit happens." And leave it at that.

I wouldn't stay in an unhappy relationship, but for argument's sake, I would keep it to myself.
Your relationship is just that. YOUR relationship. It's not your friends', or every single person on the internet who is forced to see your little rants every.single.day.
**(not saying you in particular, OP, just anyone who feels like everyone else needs to know everything about their relationship).**

Oh no, I get it. I understand that I was an annoying little t**t. Like I said, I had issues I had to deal with. I see posts like that, and I can't believe I was ever like that. :lol:

This!! And I personally hate when people go on Facebook and are always making statues about how terrible their relationship is or how terrible their life is for that matter. Just because you can doesn't mean the whole world needs to be informed of your problems.

I think if someone's unhappy in their relationship, they should leave or do something to change it. At the same time.. I don't think people should announce their relationship issues to the entire world. When you let everyone know about you and your SO's problems, you're inviting other people in. People start giving opinions.. putting thoughts in you or your SO's head.. nothing good can come from it. I used to announce every little thing on FB and when I look back on it, I wish I hadn't. It's no one's business but yours. If you want people to stay out of your personal life, don't invite them in by sharing your problems with them.

Hmmmm, if I were unhappy I would keep it to myself for the most part. There are certain people that would know b/c I tell them everything.

I wouldn't stay in an unhappy relationship...



But if I had to choose, for the most part I would be quiet about it. Maybe I 'd vent to a few close friends but never post anything on facebook about it. I have friends that post every little thing they fight about on there and it drives me insane.

I agree completely, I've learned the hard way not to air your dirty laundry all over Facebook. When you start complaining about your personal life with your SO to the public, the public feels they have the right to invade on your relationship. I'd rather people think I'm crazy for ending a "perfect" relationship than them know every little detail.
I hate hearing about people's relationships on Facebook. I have a girl on my FB who dated a guy for three weeks, married him, now she's pregnant with his kid and it's always something different with her.. one day she's saying she's happy and doesn't care what everyone thinks, then she's posting about how she found texts in his phone, then she's posting again about how happy she is.. and she wonders why people judge her.

I was in an abusive marriage for almost 5 years, and I kept it quiet the whole time. I defended him, and I never trashed his name, or made anyone think anything less of him, even if he was hurting me. I never told anyone we were having problems, not even family, and no one knew we were going through a divorce- which took a year to go through. When it finally happened, I waited a couple weeks before I even told anyone that we were divorced. I told family, and I waited a couple months to tell my dad- because my dad is against divorce. I made an announcement on facebook explaining that we were divorced, and everyone was 100% shocked because they thought everything was perfect.




Personally, I don't believe in airing out dirty laundry in public...I know in 2013,most people are fine with sharing everything from what they had for lunch that day to how amazing their bowel movement was- but I just can't do it. I chose to keep it quiet, and I did. I'm glad I did, but I was also exceptionally embarrassed at admitting failure in my marriage....I never planned on EVER getting divorced...but things happen, and you move on.
