Honesty wards off the longest

“Honesty is an essential cornerstone for a long-term and happy relationship,” says Parship psychologist and couple consultant Markus Ernst in a press release.

“Of course you want to please the Partner and presents itself in a better light. Here, however, caution is necessary: From an initially small sting can develop into a complicated web of lies, which is increasingly harder to break the relationship of trust in a relationship can be hugely damaging.“
