Do I have to admit my past sins to my family or a prospective spouse?

Short Answer

It is normally forbidden to talk about your past sins. If someone asks you, you should refuse to answer. If they insist, you can speak in general by admitting that you have made mistakes in your life that you regret but have asked Allah for forgiveness and reassure the person that those mistakes are unlikely to affect your future.
