My husband and I have been married for a few years. When we bought our home I brought with me a box that contained old letters, awards, sketches and more. The items were those that I had accumulated over the years, but mostly from my Jr. high and high school years.
Last week, I decided to go through the box and found stacks of love letters from a former boyfriend. We were together through high school, college and years after. For many years I thought we'd marry. Of course the relationship didn't last and I met my husband who I love dearly. I know it would crush my husband if he found these letters but I can't bring myself to trash them.
I feel terrible hiding this secret from my husband but he just wouldn't understand.
