Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbour, for we are all members of one body.
Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.
Lying undermines the ‘knowing of one another’, which is essential to every marriage. The point at which deception enters, is the point in which the connection ends. If you can feel safe enough to be totally vulnerable, you will experience true intimacy in marriage. Spouses need to deal with any fear that opens a door to deception in marriage and honesty must be accompanied by grace.
