I'm very much a proponent of complete separation between job/profession and personal life. The two can easily conflict in the vast majority of situations.
And if his 'view' towards you changes, of course your job could suffer ! A good working relationship is just like any other 'good' relationship ! It depends on a certain degree of mutual respect and team play.
I see no reason why you can't just let it go as "normal personal struggles" (we all have them) as far as boss is concerned and if he trys to pry more just explain you don't really feel it's right to share personal stuff with work. He should get the message.
