Monday I talked about the sincerity of our marriage vows. Obviously, honesty is important in the course of a marriage as well. Do you believe everything your husband tells you? Should he believe everything you say?
My husband is the most honorable man I know. Particularly in his job as an Army officer, he displays nearly flawless integrity, respect, wisdom and humility. Therefore, this is not meant as a complaint, simply an honest observation. Perhaps you have made the same one.
“I did check to see if your show was on. It’s not, so I figured we’d watch Battle Star Galactica.” Hmmm… “I will take the trash out later.” “I only spent $30 on Copenhagen last week.” Right…
And his favorite response to any question I pose. In fact, I think it comprises at least 50% of his vocabulary, “I don’t know, maybe.” That is the easiest, tiny little smudge of the truth that works conveniently in many situations. Please, just tell me now!
