  • Imagine his surprise. He thought he was her fifth husband, but two years into their marriage, he found out he was her ninth. She lied because she was afraid he wouldn't marry her if he knew.

Sometimes it's difficult but better in the long-run to have a relationship built on truth than on quick sand. What good is that?

Ron: Imagine his surprise. He thought he was her fifth husband, but two years into their marriage, he found out he was her ninth. She lied because she was afraid that he wouldn’t marry her if he knew. The issue here is trustworthiness.

Lying about your past just creates an artificial foundation for your relationship that will feel fragile, not stable. Well into your marriage you’re probably going to be anxious; fearful that if they ever find out the truth you’re sunk. Hey, being honest may cost you something. Sometimes it’s difficult but better in the long-run to have a relationship built on truth than on quicksand. What good is that? For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
