Spousal honesty

“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” (Exodus 20: 16)

Areas in which spousal honesty can be fostered:

  1. Total transparency with all financial transactions.
  2. Internet use- each spouse should have full access to each other’s Facebook and personal email accounts.
  3. Relationships- inform your spouse of friendships with the opposite sex.
  4. Keep your spouse informed about your daily schedule, and if changes occur.

    Father Michael replies: Given the aggressiveness of our culture and our human weakness, I believe that this extra level of accountability and protection trumps the trust issue.

    Let’s agree to disagree then for I don’t believe souses build mutual trust by spying on each other.
