A while back, Elsie sparked a debate online with her advice to women against telling their partners everything.
In an Instagram post, Elsie urged women to hold back on spilling every detail to their partners. According to her, their partners do not need to know everything, especially if it is about their friends.
Highlighting the kinds of information she’s advising them to keep from their partners, Elsie told women that their husbands, or boyfriends, don’t need to know the secrets their female friends have confided to them.
Some friends, according to Elsie, like discussing their issues with their friends because it helps them feel better. She, however, clarified that the conversation should end there and that the women need not share with their partners what they have discussed.
