Revealing the sins one has committed to one’s spouse

Q: If a person has a committed a sin in the past and has made tawbah for that particular sin how does he not feel guilty about not telling his future spouse, as it is obviously forbidden to reveal your sins. So if the sin was done in the past (and it is not a sin that would affect the marriage or the spouse) how does a person not feel guilty about telling his future spouse? Why should you not feel guilty about not telling your future spouse about it?


A: There is no need to tell the spouse about it. The spouse is not god.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
