I look at honesty and integrity as fundamental in a long term relationship. It allows me to sleep at night and gives the other person the right to make true, informed decisions about our relationship and whether or not they are up to whatever is going on. It gives a measure of trust in a relationship that cannot be replaced. And, even if it hurts for the moment it will be worth it in the end cuz the opposite only brings a dissolution of love and a destruction of healthy comfort and joy in a relationship.
