Misunderstanding and dishonesty can wreck a marriage. Scripture tells us that healthy relationships include laying down our lives for our spouses, asking for and receiving forgiveness, and making a commitment that lasts a lifetime. In order to do these things, spouses have to tell the truth to each other about where they are struggling, failing, or feeling hurt by the other. The truth frees us to get to the root of a problem, rather than covering it up, avoiding it or blaming one another. These resources give further wisdom about how truth affects marriages and how spouses can work together on spiritual practices to grow in spiritual intimacy.
