For me honesty is one of the most important part of every relationship...be with family members, on friendship, and most of all between husband and wife. Physical appearance is not as important as being beautiful inside. The Lord looks in our hearts...He knows whether we are honest and can be trusted. For every marriage to survive, honesty is a MUST! If honesty is not present, trust will never exists.
I am glad that I am married to a man who is honest. He tells me everything, from his past, present; he doesn't care if it is embarrassing experienced or his success. And because he loves me for who I am...he tells me whatever in his mind. And in return, I do the same. I can tell him when he needs a shower or he stinks :-). With him, he is not worried that I might get angry when he says that I need to comb my hair or when my face needs cleaning :-). Small things like that can be offended to others.
Money wise, this can break marriages and homes when honesty is not 100% given. I've seen many couples broke their vows and the hearts of their kids because of a broken marriages. With me and Matt, we are honest dealing with our finances. Though he's the only one who brings bacon home, he doesn't mind that I send money to my family in the Philippines or buys them stuffs....that is because I was honest enough to tell him that I need to help them...and he understands. No wonder why we are still together for nearly 10 years.
