Eight Values of Marriage: Value 1 - Transparency

Eight Values of Marriage: Value 1 - Transparency

by Don Purdum

Transparency is an issue most all of us struggle with. It is hard being really genuine, and it is an extremely vulnerable place to be.

In a young marriage, couples are still learning about each other, and how far they are willing to go in revealing themselves.

It is funny to think about in the most basic of terms. For example passing gas or going to the bathroom in front of the other. It sounds silly, but those are extremely intimate and personal things that you rarely share with anyone else. Not that you necessarily want others to share that with you, right?

The point is you are emotionally vulnerable due to basic transparency issues.

Transparency ultimately allows others to see through the person you create for them to the person you really are. The good, the bad, and the ugly. It's a state of relationship where you have absolutely nothing to hide.

    Hello Don very good post, enjoyed reading it and I wish you all the best with the release of your new e-book. It seems that marriages isn't so popular these days. People get married for a month and then divorce next month. Marriage is supposed to be forever, until one or the other partner dies. People don't seem to place any value on marriage these days. It's rare to find a marriage that lasts for 50, 60 or more years. I believe your e-book will save many marriages from divorce. I have shared your post for more people to see.
