Are you honest? Do you think that a relationship can survive without honesty? Why or why not? Have you ever found yourself being dishonest with your partner? What would you do if you found out, that your partner was being dishonest with you? I found myself wondering this after finding out that my friends partner had lied throughout most of their relationship. Thankfully she found out and has left him. She is much happier and I think that the whole experience has made her stronger. I am glad to say that I have always been honest with my husband and I know that he is always honest with me too. I would like to hear what your opinion on the matter is. Please share your stories.

I agree with you. Honesty is one of important factor to sustain a good relation. Without honesty, they are just lying to each other, and there is no happiness in this relationship. Because you have come up a lie to make an excuse, or do things behind your partner's back without his/her knowing. That is how we treat a relationship like that.

I definitely agree with you. No relationship can ever last if couples are not honest with each other.

Sometimes I lie by omission to my husband...not because I want to keep things from him but out of consideration for him. He is a disabled vet...disabled by PTSD so stress really sets him off. So, I keep things from him from time to time. I have never outright lied to him though. If he notices something or suspects...and asks me about it I will answer honestly. I do believe that honesty is very important in a relationship. You have to be able to depend on your partner. I need to be able to depend on my husband and he needs to be able to depend on me. I would be very unhappy if I learned that I could not trust him to be honest with me.
