I totally understand what you mean as most of us go through this after marriage. Generally, we are comfortable telling our parents about our children but when it comes to us and our spouse, we hesitate and lie. That I think is because as partners, we might be influenced by the other, accept their practices but if our parents get to know about this, they might get upset. They might not be able to accept the "vices" and might instead blame themselves and be unhappy. So, to protect them, we tend to lead different lives and lie to them. According to me, this is completely fine because our circumstances are very different from theirs and we have adapted to the practices followed by our generation, our peers. A little lie doesnt hurt :)
Transparency always works better. Try and be as honest as you can.
There will always be things we may hide from our parents. As adults we need to think of how our actions reflect on our children. What would you want your children to do in such a situation? And no matter how forgiving you may be of them, remember generation gaps will always exist. Perhaps how you are as a parent can help you decide the actions you take as the child.

Top 3 priorities of a long term marriage
Should a spouse not active and passionate in relationship, object to partner being in another relationship ?
Can a man and a woman remain friends even after marriage?
A friend of mine says that her husband helps her with chores only if she agrees not to discuss the same in his family, he is OK lending her support but no one should know, especially his mom. What is shameful in letting the world know that a husband cares for his wife?
This question is to both the sexes, would/did you bring in bigger wardrobe, move TV inside, revamp the attached bathroom or paint the walls?
They say we meet parts of 'Self' we don't even know about when in close relationships. I understood that I lie to myself convincingly and believe in my lie with all my heart. But through him, with what I experience (which mocks my lie unabashedly to my face) I know how I trick my own Self. Share something about you?
There are these two men I feel jealous about, the way my wife chats with them in parties. I know nothing more will happen, it's just party fun, but still can't help watching out for where she is when they are in the same party. Help please.
Like is it important matching kundalis in a love marriage. When we have already decided to spend life together then why should kundali act as a barrier..?????
Marriages are made in heaven, but they are lived here on earth. What makes a good, fulfilled marriage? How far do couples travel along, hand in hand, to reach this state?
