I used to think men were pretty simple creatures– and that I could read my husband easily. But then I came across something written by marriage expert, author, and radio host Stephen Arterburn, and I realized I’d missed the boat on what my husband might be feeling, and how he and many men are keeping secrets.

Here’s what Mr. Arterburn says about the secrets men keep: Be assured that your man has hidden knowledge he will not offer up voluntarily. The main point is that you probably don’t know your husband as well as you think you do. There’s no reason for this to cause you despair… because ultimately, he desires for you to help him become a transparent person, one who is completely known.

So take a look at the 5 Secrets Men Keep, and how you can help him break free of the secrets that might be weighing him down.
