Honesty and transparency is essential to a successful long-term relationship. Every partners have their own reasons for why, when and to what extent they choose to share with each other or things to remember.
They may fear that the price to pay for sharing certain thoughts and feelings is too high to use as a reason to defend themselves and be selfish. Or, feeling sorry for their partner, they may hold them back to express something that is only hurtful or angry, seeing it as a better course of action.
Honesty is the foundation of trust in a relationship and it’s necessary for it to function and prosper.

Honesty breeds healthy communication with partners, which is also necessary for functional relationships. It’s all about real connections.
Honesty does always feel good every time but we can appreciate it because the person being honest is being vulnerable. They are taking a chance at trusting you with the truth. These people understand that what they say could affect relationship but they care about you and want a relationship that is built on honesty. When a relationship is built on honesty it opens the door for growth.
Partners do not have to say everything to each other to be honest, but they are transparent to information that directly affects each other’s well-being. Perhaps you don’t need to tell each other absolutely everything in order to be considered honest, but you do need to be transparent about information that’s going to directly affect each other’s well-being. If you’re avoid telling your partner something because you’re worried about their reaction, you’re keeping a secret and intentionally being dishonest.
Honesty further breeds intimacy in your relationship which will make it last long
