How do I prevent others from seeing or reading my messages on my iPhone 6?

I sent a message to a Facebook contact via the messenger app on my iPhone 6. The individual later sent me a screen shot from my spouse mentioning something I had said in the message. How did my spouse get access to my messages and how do I stop this? I did not see any reference to my specific problem.
