a : fairness and straightforwardness of conduct b : adherence to the facts : sincerity
(defined from Mirriam Webster dictionary)
In our marriage, honestly is of upmost importance. And we value it as that. I’ve always thought it better to be straightforward than have to cover something up for day, months, years. By that point the truth has been so muddled it hurts even more to be honest.
So my encouragement today is try to be honest. With you spouse and with yourself. Don’t muddle the waters when they don’t need to be. Don’t create issues that arise from gossip. Always try to be honest.
