Please don’t say anything bad about your partner behind their back, not even because they will probably find out and be upset. The problem is that you’ll probably figure it out sooner or later, but your mother or the people you told about it will remember the bad things you said. Let’s be honest: you told them to get help, and at the time, it didn’t matter if that was right or wrong.

Be wiser. Talk to your partner about the problems in your relationship. Don’t talk about the flaws you both have when you’re upset; wait until you’re calm. This makes it much more likely that you’ll be happy together for a long time.
