Discussing Past Sins with Spouse

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If when married or before the wife to be asks about any past history, should you tell her? I am scared it would risk the marriage. Aren’t those sins which you have committed meant to stay between you and Allah?

A: Yes, previous sins are between the person and Allah Ta’aala. There is absolutely no need to discuss past actions with the future spouse or after marriage. This can cause havoc in a marriage. A person will make Taubah (repent) from previous sins and not discuss it. Keep hidden what Allah has kept hidden.
