I’d really like to hear from anybody who claims never to have misled or deceived their partner, or kept them in the dark, about some important aspect of who they are. I find it almost unimaginable that such a person could exist. I don’t believe that any of us has a clear-sighted and accurate self-conception. Without that, how can we be expected (or expect ourselves) to be completely “honest” with a spouse or partner?
