Is it a sin to hide one’s previous relationships or important details from the person one will marry? Is it necessary to tell one’s future spouse about his/her previous marriages, sexual intercourses, other mistakes and with whom those mistakes were made?
Is it necessary to tell one’s future spouse about all of his/her previous relationships in detail if he/she asks about them and their level? Is it necessary to tell one’s future spouse about his/her previous marriages, sexual intercourses, other mistakes and with whom those mistakes were made? If a person lies or gives incomplete answers to those questions, is he/she regarded to have violated the other person’s rights? Or does one’s future spouse have no right to know them since they are a person’s personal mistakes?

Dear Brother / Sister,
A person does not have to tell one’s future spouse about them. If they are told, problems may occur in the family. It is better for a person to hide his/her sins.
However, if one’s future spouse asks about them, it is necessary not to tell lies. However, one does not have to tell the truth. That is, it is not haram to keep silent if one is not asked about them.
