You may think you know your wife better than anyone, but chances are she has at least one don't-tell-the-husband secret. Redbook deputy editor Jeannie Kim writes that all womankind has 11 near-universal secrets, some of which will shock men and some of which they'll realize they suspected all along. Here they are:

  1. Everything a woman buys for herself -- from shoes to skirts and even shampoo -- really costs 20 percent more than she tells you.
  2. She actually thinks about sex--with you--a lot. (It's just that by the end of the day she's too tired to do anything about it.)
  3. She is just as nervous about commitment as you are.
  4. She may be modern and independent, but she still wants you to be "the man."
  5. Her ex-boyfriends were not completely terrible in bed.
  6. She is scared that she'll turn into her mother. (So the worst insult you can throw at the woman you love is, "You're acting just like your mother.")
  7. She wants you to be jealous--but just a little bit.
  8. Yes, she fantasizes about hot celebrity guys, but that doesn't mean she wants you to be one of them.
  9. She tells her girlfriends more than she will ever admit to you (but less than you fear).
  10. She really does notice and appreciate all the chores you do.
  11. She loves you with all her heart, but she still gets wistful about the fact that she'll never feel that falling-in-love sizzle and spark again.
