Ignorance is bliss

Shakespeare's Othello, regarding Desdemona's supposed infidelity with Cassio:

"What sense had I of her stol'n hours of lust?
I saw't not, thought it not, it harm'd not me:
I slept the next night well, was free and merry;
I found not Cassio's kisses on her lips:
He that is robb'd, not wanting what is stol'n,
Let him not know't, and he's not robb'd at all."

Ignorance is bliss. Better not to know of the spouse's infidelity! Confession may be good for the soul of the confessor, but bad for the soul of the one confessee!

Stout denial and secrecy are best.
