"Dear Pulse,

My name is Victoria Ubani and I have been married for two years but I can say that I am fed up with this marriage already.

The reason for this is that my husband, Edward, is making life difficult for me due to some personal secrets I revealed to him. Shortly after our marriage, I decided to tell Edward some secrets I have been keeping to myself with the belief that by so doing, he would come to trust me the more, not knowing that I had shot myself in the foot.

When I was in the university, like most girls, I allowed the school to pass through me and also had affairs but in the process, I became pregnant twice and I had to abort them and since then, I was very careful not to fall into that trap again.

And this was the secret I revealed to my husband which I now regret because he has been holding that against me. Anytime we have a disagreement, Edward must bring up the issue of my abortions and make it sound as if I just had them. It gets so bad that he threatens to send me out of his house for something I did more than 15 years ago.

I now regret ever telling him and I wonder whether it is not even better for couples to keep their secrets to themselves.
