Elsie sparked an online debate a while back when she advised women not to tell their partners everything.

In an instagram post, Elsie urged women not to spill every detail to their partners. Their partners, she believes, do not need to know everything, especially when it comes to their friends.

Elsie told women that their husbands or boyfriends don’t need to know the secrets their female friends have confided in them, highlighting the types of information she advises them to keep from their partners.
