How Much is Too Much Information?

Almost every relationship has one of these moments sooner or later. A pregnancy scare. A possible major health problem. A potentially big career change. Naturally, you want to share the stress of the not-knowing with your significant other. But you're worried about freaking them out over something that might not even happen.

So, do you say something or wait until your worst fears are confirmed? Here's what He and She advise.

He Says:

Why would you subject me to freaking out over how I'm going to support a child when you haven't seen the results of the pregnancy test yet? Guys don't handle change all that well. It's probably best not to subject them to it until you're positive it's going to happen. That gives you time to figure out how you're going to spring the news on him.

She Says:

Stock photo for article.I think you need to share the stress and work through it together. If it's something that's going to affect us as a couple - a move across the country, a baby, an STD - then we both have a right to know as much information as soon as possible. Then you have time to plan a course of action - as a team - about what you'll do - together - to deal with whatever happens next. It's not fair for one of you to go it alone.
